A Christmas Gift Guide for the Beauty Obsessed

My absolute favourite holiday of the year is just around the corner (hooray!), so it's almost time to get festive and start spreading some Christmas cheer. I love buying gifts for my loved ones, but it can be quite overwhelming and even stressful for some. So in order to make the gift giving experience a little easier, I have put together a gift guide for the beauty junkie in your life and hopefully it'll spark some ideas for your next Christmas shop.

First of all, the packaging alone is simply to die for! The pink and purple backdrop is inspired by New York at wintertime which is SO adorable and it's definitely an eye catcher. Too Faced are all about their scented eyeshadow palettes (chocolate and peach), and this particular one smells of sweet vanilla macarons. It holds twelve stunning shades in total with a very nice mix of matte and shimmer finishes for creating any look they desire. This palette also comes with a deluxe sized Better Than Sex Mascara which is one of their cult favourites in the beauty world. I think this is amazing value for money and absolutely perfect for the makeup lover.

The Body Shop never disappoint when it comes to their wonderful range of gifts. One that really stood out and just screams Christmas is their Frosted Berries Festive Tin filled with four fruity treats - a shower gel, body butter, body scrub and body lotion that are infused with cranberry extract. What I think is truly great about this gift is that it's practical, so you can actually use the tin to store your bath and body products. A lovely gift idea for a family member or friend who is crazy about fruity scents.

If you're looking to really spoil a loved one this festive season, you cannot go wrong with this gorgeous makeup set by Charlotte Tilbury. It features a few mini makeup products as well as the Legendary Muse eyeshadow palette, and a matte Hot Lips lippie in the shade 'Secret Salma'. It's definitely more on the pricey side of the scale, but I think it's a fantastic way for the recipient to get a feel of a variety of her products before committing to purchasing the full sized ones. Amazing quality and packaged beautifully - perfect for the lover of all things luxury.

Speaking of luxurious presents, Viktor and Rolf produce lovely fragrances (Bon Bon being my personal favourite) with Flowerbomb having a sweet, floral musky scent that can take you from day to night. It is packaged in a very pretty pink tree that is a Christmas decoration in itself, and also contains a shower gel and body lotion of the same scent. It's definitely more of a feminine perfume and the bottle will just look beautiful sitting on their vanity stand.

The wait is finally over and this perfect palette would have to be the ULTIMATE makeup gift to give this holiday season. In this luxe marble case are two blushes, powder, bronzer and a large strobe powder that are of high quality. Their Ambient Lighting powders give the skin a very flattering soft focus, luminous finish that's great for a subtle daytime look. A very impressive palette and an absolute must-have for the makeup aficionado. It is limited edition and extremely popular so be sure to get your hands on it before it sells out!  

If you're unsure on what to gift someone, anything by Lush is 100% the way to go because who doesn't love a good pamper!? Ray of Light is full of scrubs, gels and lotions that just smell heavenly and will be sure to put a smile on their face. Heck, any of their HUGE range of gift sets or bath bombs will make their entire bathing experience a tonne more merry and fun. 

I hope this little guide helps you in your journey of gift giving this Christmas!
