2016 Holiday Makeup Gift Guide

Christmas is nearly upon us! If you’ve not yet done you’re Christmas shopping for the beauty lover in your life, these suggestions should help narrow down the possibilities! I will admit, all of these are a bit luxury (in my humble opinion, anyway). However, stay tuned for another gift guide or two, one of which will be Stocking Stuffers!

tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case $59


This kit is the most affordable item on the list and I think it is such a great value for money! This lovely little booklet has 24 gorgeous shadows on the one side and on the other, you’ve got your mascara, eyeliner, a lip paintm and 5 of tarte’s amazonian clay blushes. This would be great for any beauty lover, but especially someone in their 20’s. As a 23 year old, I know I’d love to see this under the tree!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit in Surreal Light $80



This palette is stunning, both inside and out. You get a “universally-flattering” powder, a bronzer, a highlighter, and two blushes all in Hourglass’s famously smooth formula. To top it off, it comes in this handy marble compact and let’s be honest. Who doesn’t love a bit of marble these days? This is limited edition so snatch one up if you fancy.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Vault Collection $195




This gift is mostly meant for the person who just cannot seem to get enough of lip products in their life! This collection has a whopping 38 shades and I was pleasantly surprised to see that Bite covered all the general bases; there’s gorgeous reds in various tones, berries, purples, pinks, and some great nudes! Definitely keep this guy in mind for the lippie lover in your life!

Charlotte Tilbury “The Dolce Vita” Set $230




Rounding off the last of the makeup picks is this beautiful set. This is honestly what my dreams are made of! Not only do you get the Dolce Vita palette, which I’ve personally been lusting after for years, but you get six more full size items! This comes with more of Charlotte’s most famous products including an eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss, lip cheat, lipstick and a blush all kept together in an adorable makeup bag (not pictured here…obviously!). The price tag is a bit of a doozy, but I’d say it is well worth it for the ultimate makeup fanatic!





There’s plenty more amazing makeup gifts out there, believe me, but these were a few of my faves! I hope you’re enjoying the holiday season so far! Ta for now! xx
