Christmas Gift Guide 2017 | Beauty Edit

Tis' the season for binge watching elf, a chocolate diet and festivities galore. 

Amongst the festive rush, buying presents can become tricky - after all, with so much on offer how do you know what the best gifts are?! 

Here are my beauty gift picks, I really loved writing this post so I hope you enjoy it! 

First up are fragrances, I think they are the perfect personal gift to give to a family member, friend or loved one this Christmas. There is something very sentimental about someone gifting you a scent, and something that sticks in your mind whenever you wear the scent. 

How beautiful is this gift set from Burberry*? This is exclusive to World Duty Free which makes it an even more special gift this Christmas. So when you are heading on your festive travels this December be sure to pop into World Duty Free to browse the beautiful (and discounted!) gifts they have on offer. 
This set contains 5 miniature Burberry scents in a stunning gold embossed gift box and has a real luxury feel to it, as there are a variety of beautiful scents within this gift set it means that the lucky receiver is able to sample and try different perfumes as opposed to trying to guess which notes they like. 

Next we have my current go-to perfume which is Olympea from Paco Rabanne, as you can probably see this is very loved. For me this scent is very wintery and well suited to this time of year, I know it's very popular and so a safe option to go for. 

As a beauty enthusiast, I absolutely love receiving makeup for special occasions. There's something special about someone handpicking a particular product for you that makes it so special. 
Nail polishes are always a winner and a gal can never have too many! This gift set from Leighton Denny contains two beautiful shades (one glitter polish, one with a beautiful shiny finish)  the shades are very versatile and perfect for Autumn and Winter!

On the theme of things gals can never have too many of we have lipsticks (telling myself this daily) and what better way to kick start 2018 than with some beautiful new lipstick faves. 
I don't think I'll ever stop raving about Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, I currently own 7 of them and my wish list is forever expanding! They're a real luxury treat for makeup lovers and something I'd definitely recommend if your budget is sarong £25 -  I know that this is something a lot of girls wouldn't necessarily treat themselves to but would adore. 
If you're unsure on shades for individuals, the Frog Prince lipstick from Lipstick Queen at World Duty Free adjusts to the 'perfect' pinky shade to suit your skin tone - making it such a lovely gift to give. It's also very unique, making it a personalised and special gift. 
Another go-to brand for me is always Urban Decay, I'm yet to find something that disappoints me from them so I know I can trust that the products will be well loved by everyone. 
I love to give makeup gifts that are a little out of someones comfort zone, this allows them to try something new that they will (hopefully) love and appreciate. These liquid lipsticks from Urban Decay come in a selection of bright and beautiful shades, they're also waterproof and last on the lips- making them the perfect 'out there' gift for a lipstick lover. 
and last but not least is this beautiful palette, also from Urban Decay - it's currently in the sale for under £30 so an absolute steal!

I think skincare is always a really lovely gift to give as it adds a little pamper and self indulgence into an everyday beauty routine. 
First up we have the Magnitone Barefaced limited edition rose gold cleaning brush*   i'm a sucker for anything rose gold and this brush is gorgeous! I have my blue Magnitone barefaced which I use daily and love, it makes my skin feel and look plump and soft and helps with those pesky winter breakouts. 
Next up is the Aura mask from Antipodes, this is a moisturising mask and so is perfect for Winter when skin can start to feel and look dry - it's honey scented and smells divine  this is my all time fave face mask. 
Sticking to face masks we have the Double Wear mask from Estee Lauder,  this is a luxury sheet mask that also leaves the skin feeling and looking amazing. Estee Lauder is such a well known timeless brand and so this gift will suit all ages. 

What good is makeup without tools that work?! Brushes are definitely key to any good makeup look which makes them the perfect gift for a beauty lover. 
First up and a luxury gift idea is the Blend Up from Magnitone  which is incredible! it's an electrical makeup brush that blends for you (a lazy gals dream) this means that even beginners to makeup can achieve an effortless airbrushed finished. 
I absolutely love my blend up and I know that fellow makeup lovers would too! 

Next we have the Ready Set Glow set from Real Techniques, this is currently £7.99 so a real beauty steal! 

Last up we have body care, after all what is Christmas without some sort of smellies gift? 

A gift guide would not be complete without Soap and Glory, I love the scent of the Righteous Butter and so this is my pick - however everything from S&G smells amazing and would make lovely gifts! 

Bath Salts make a really love gift, especially for those who aren't keen on glittery bath bombs! These  from Joan Collins* smell beautiful, leave your skin feeling soft and come in beautiful glass packaging- making them the perfect gift. 

The Zoella brand is one I've used and love, I reviewed the Christmas range in this blog post and have used the hand cream religiously this past month! 

Lastly, I really love the spa range from The Body Shop - it's luxury body care without the huge price tag which means you don't feel like you have to sparingly use the products! this oil is lovely for a pamper night or dry skin pick me up. 

I hope you enjoyed my beauty gift guide.
