CHRISTMAS GIFT-GUIDE FOR HER ; LUXURY BEAUTY (£45 and over) by krisevilcupcake featuring winter scented candles
Hello hello my fellow beauty lovers!
As someone who is madly excited about Christmas and gift giving in general, I decided to do a gift-guide this year for all budgets. I wanted to start with a pricy one so that you'll have enough time to save in case something catches your eye but do not worry - there will be one for £45 and MUCH less so that anyone can take ideas from here! I divided it into sections so if you have something in particular you were thinking about then you can get straight into business and have a look without having to read everything.
Ready? Let's get started.
For my Palette- Addicts:
- ESTEE LAUDER - ULTIMATE MAKEUP KIT ( £5O)
You get it all; eyeshadows, cheek products, eyeliner, brushes and lip products. Limited availability but definitely worth the money.
- MAC - KEEPSAKES GOLDEN LIP & EYE BAG ( £45)
The perfect luxury on-the-go treasure bag complete with a quad, a lipstick and a lipglass; all super wearable and perfect for the neutral-look lovers.
- ANYTHING CHARLOTTE TILBURY! Her packaging is to die for and her products are the ultimate luxury item to show off in your makeup collection. Some of the most gorgeous sets to stand out for me are: The Dolce Vita Look Gift Box, The Uptown Girl Look Gift Box, The Rock Chick Look Gift Box and my personal favourite gem The Golden Goddess Look Gift Box . All these retail for a heartbreaking £165 but they're the ultimate bombs.
For my Nail Polish Gals:
- YVES SAINT LAURENT - LA LAQUE NAIL VARNISH TRIO ( £55)
This gorgeous trio of super fancy polishes includes the shades: Blanc Symbolist #26, Bronze Aztec #28 and Feuille D'Or #47 which are perfect for the all the ladies that love their golds and rusted greens and glitter! Definitely top choice for the new year celebrations!
- NAILS INC - THE ALEXA EDITIONS COLLECTION ( £45 )
The package includes Alexa's favourite glossy shades for a total of 6 bombastic varnishes perfect for all the whole year and any occasion; going from bright red and pink hearts top coat, ALEXA CASHMERE – soft pink Cashmere effect polish, ALEXA EDIT NIGHT SKY - Alexa’s favourite deep dark navy polish, ALEXA WINTER LILAC - Alexa’s favourite lilac polish, ALEXA HOLOGRAPHIC - a shimmering top coat to transform your favourite polishes, ALEXA SNOWFLAKE – exclusive to Selfridges, Snowflake is a sparkling top coat full of rose gold coloured snowflakes
- CIATE - NAIL LAB ( £65)
This is for someone that is really getting into all sorts of nail designs and wants the lot - colours, paint pots, glitters, nail file, funner, petri dish, top coats etc
Not to mention it comes in the cutest kit bag to put on your dressing table.
For my Perfume-Chicks:
I know fragrances can be tough to buy because you have to know who likes what kind of scent but these three I'm featuring here are top choices for most women so there is a high chance of you getting it right. Maybe scavange around the perfume draws of the person you have in mind and examine the kind of scent they tend to go for. Floral? Citrus? Feminine and cutesy? Mature? Drop down the names/ brands and you can always ask an expert for some help. I love helping people shopping for perfumes. Here are my personal top 3:
- TOM FORD - BLACK ORCHID COFFRET ( £76)
Personally my favourite Tom Ford scent, it's also one of the most popular ones in the beauty community at the moment. The packaging kills it and the scent is simply perfect for any sophisticated yet simple lady.
- JO MALONE - POMEGRANATE NOIR COLLECTION ( £68)
THE scent for this winter accompanied by the luxurious packaging ready to just place under the tree; Jo Malone is one to go for when you want a winning present both for looks and quality.
- MARC JACOBS - DAISY EAU DE TOILETTE 100ML SET ( £74)
One of Marc's most popular and loved scents in the fanciest Christmas packaging - perfect for young women.
For that awesome extra:
As a little extra I wanted to add random things that are yes, pricey BUT always useful in a girl's beauty regime - wether it be for hair, skin etc
- CLARISONIC MIA 2 (£125)
Definitely a super hyped product in the beauty community that now it's reaching non-youtube people all over the world. Some of my friends only just heard about this (yeah, believe it or not) so it would be a great and useful gift to pump up their skincare routine.
- Something...GHD (£110 - £145)
Now I love some hair styling tools and GHD products are just the way forward. Do your girlfriends like to curl their hair on a night out? Straighten it?
GHD's last literally 10+ years because they're such great quality so definitely check out something for the curl lovers or the straight Egyptians princess hair lovers.
- DIPTYQUE HOLIDAY CANDLE SET ( £78)
Every holiday season Diptyque comes out with a special set of candles and this season the limited edition set comes with :
So here it is. I hope you enjoyed this and found it somewhat helpful. Let me know in the comments what stood out to you or what you'd love to find under the tree. Tune in next week for the more affordable gift-guide filled with beauty gems for gals on a budget!
