- Christmas Gift Guide: Makeup and Haircare -
The second part of my beauty gift guide (find Skincare and Bodycare here) and today we're talking about all things makeup and haircare. I absolutely love Christmas makeup sets, they're always so beautiful and well designed and I think you'll really love the products in this guide!
I think Bobbi Brown is one of my favourites when it comes to Christmas makeup sets! They've created a Luxe Gems collection this year and the packaging alone is just stunning, with a textured look to the top of the palette and luxurious gold packaging throughout their other products.
The Bobbi Brown Luxe Gems Eyeshadow Palette is a beautiful palette of 7 rich and vibrant shades. Perfect for those who want a bit more glitz in their daily makeup look or to add shimmer to something more neutral. The packaging alone is worth it in my opinion!
They've also brought out a red glitter lipstick which is insane - the ultimate Christmas shade! The Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colour in Red Velvet is a shimmery shade which would add some oomph to any festive outfit.
There's also the Bobbi Brown Luxe Illuminating Powder in Golden Hour which, as you can imagine, is a stunning highlighting powder which will be gorgeous all year round too.
Finally, the Bobbi Brown Luxe Eyeliner is a perfect choice for someone who loves a good smokey eye and the packaging will look beaut in your makeup bag!
I love NARS. If I had to use one brand for the rest of eternity, it would probably be NARS as their products are varied and they just work. Their Studio54-themed Christmas offering is no exception, so I would recommend checking out some of their products. The NARS Studio 54 Inferno Eyeshadow Palette is stunning and I may pick it up myself if I can get my mitts on it. I also love the NARS Studio 54 Softcore Mini Blush and Balm Kit, as they are the perfect handbag accompaniments along with the NARS Past Curfew Mini Eye Duo ft their Climax mascara and eyeliner. Their lipsticks have also got the Studio 54 treatment and have amazing glitter packaging! I have the NARS Studio 54 Audacious Lipstick in Carmen and it's so beautiful.
Another brand I always look out for is bareMinerals. The bareMinerals Horizon Bounce and Blur Eyeshadow palette is such a pretty collection of colours which would be ideal for someone who loves neutral tones, or wants to add a touch of purple to their makeup. I love the gold tone in the middle - it's gorgeous!
Next we have Pop Beauty and I had to mention their Permanent Pout Liquid Lipsticks! If you're doing lots of eating, drinking or smooching this festive period, then you need these. They last a crazy amount of time and come in an amazing array of shades.
Pixi have been a long term favourite of mine and love so many of their recent collaborations with YouTubers and Influencers. With their glittery and shimmery looks, so many of them are perfect for Christmas so I had to include them here.
There's a whole host of amazing products from Pixi inc Pixi RachhLoves The Layers Highlighting Palette, the Pixi X Heart Defensor Eye Palette, the Pixi X Maryam NYC Lit Kit - Night and the Pixi From Head to Toe Glow-y Powder.
They're all gorgeous and would make an amazing addition to anyone's makeup bag.
Redken and Pureology
I'm one of those people who is so low maintenance with their hair, and I really enjoy when people gift me new hair things to try as it saves me having to find products. So, I try and do the same for other people at Christmas and these two haircare sets are ideal!
Redken are a great haircare brand and I've liked everything I've tried so far, so I feel very confident to recommend the Redken Color Extend Blondage Shampoo and Conditioner. They also have their amazing One United All in One Treatment which hydrates and conditions hair after washing it. They have a gift pouch with all 3 products here (which is currently 30% off!)
Pureology Happily Hydrated Christmas Set is another set which would be perfect for those who have hair that needs a boost in moisture. It contains the Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner along with their Colour Fanatic Spray which aims to keep hair looking bright and conditioned.
I've been using Lee Stafford since I was a teenager, so I always check out what they have for Christmas. This year they have some great gifts at such reasonable prices too!
The Lee Stafford 5 Piece Ultimate Hair Mask Collection includes 5 sachets of their hair treatments from different ranges that Lee Stafford offers. I'm a bit fan of the Coconut Mask and the Hair that doesn't grow past a certain length range (it smells so good!) so this would be a great stocking filler for someone who likes to treat their locks.
The Lee Stafford Life's Better Blonde Washbag Set is a 2-in-1 gift, as you get a cute pouch too. I love getting these, as I use them for travelling all of the time. In this pouch, you get the Bleach Blonde Ice White Shampoo and Conditioner which is ideal for those who want to keep their blonde hair bright.
So there you have it...
