Christmas Gift Guide 2020 - Makeup

Christmas Gift Guide 2020 – Makeup

Every makeup lover would appreciate a makeup gift under their tree on Christmas morning. So, I have come up with a little collection of makeup gifts fit for every makeup junkie of every age. Hopefully I have also got all the budgets covered too.

The best thing about makeup is it is small so is also a fab stocking stuffer as well as main gifts. See genius. Your girls got you, don’t worry!! We will get those gift lists done in no time!

Let’s kick off with some Honest Beauty. New to the UK founded by A list celebrity Jessica Alba a brand that has been created with ethnically sourced natural and organic ingredients that not only look amazing they are kind to you skin. Honest cover skincare, makeup and baby but today I have picked two makeup products for you.

EYESHADOW PALETTE** - Made up of 10 shades from a neutral colour story these will suit absolutely anyone. The colours come in matte, glitter and shimmer for day to night looks. There is even a black in there if you want to smoke it out for an ultimate Christmas glam up. The packaging is sleek, magnetic close with a good-sized compact mirror making this palette easily transportable.

RRP £25.00 Available at CULT BEAUTY

LIQUID LIPSTICK** - A collection of long wearing liquid lipsticks that not only look beautiful they care for your lips with a blend of avocado oil and hyaluronic acids, preventing dryness.

There re 8 shades to choose from covering pinks, nudes, reds and aubergines. There is a colour there for everyone. It is clear to see why these have won awards.

RRP £16.00 each Available at CULT BEAUTY

CHARLOTTE TILBURY – In the words of the makeup queen herself “Darlings, have yourself a Charlotte Tilbury Christmas”. Charlottes products are just beautiful all of them! They are beautiful to look at because the packaging is so stunning, even the boxes it comes in are beautiful. The formulas are gorgeous and the colour stories she has created are just perfection. I know I would be so happy to find anything Charlotte under my tree this year and I think most beauty fans would too. So, I have 4 beauties of hers to share with you.

MINI LIP WARDROBE** – A gift of 3 miniature iconic lipstick shades. Pillow Talk a pinky nude, Very Victoria deep nude and Walk of no Shame A berry rose. All three colours are from the Matte Revolution finish which is a creamy matte.  A great way to try Charlottes lipsticks if you are new to her brand or a fabulous addition to anyone’s makeup collection.


PILLOW TALK PUSH UP LASHES – The newest member of charlottes mascaras collection and a part of the Pillow Talk family. This mascara will give you instant volume, length and a long-lasting lift meaning you can have perfect lashes all day long.  


LUXURY PALETTE OF POPS (DAZZLING DIAMONDS) **– Part of this years Christmas gifting collection this quad palette comprises four beautiful dazzling diamond shades. It is absolutely stunning.

RRP £42

Back Friday Deal at CULT BEAUTY £29.40


WONDER GLOW – Another iconic product this soft-focus primer gives a blurred affect across the skin with a beautiful glowy hue. It is also multi use and can be worn on its own, under foundation, mixed with base or over your base.


DIEGO DALLA PALMA DEMI MATTE LIPSTICK – A creamy formula with a matte finish available in these 3 beautiful shades with absolutely gorgeous colour pay off.

RRP £20.18 each Available at DIEGODALLAPALMA.COM

NUDE STIX NUDE BLOOMS – This giftset has been created by Korean beauty influencer @ponysmakeup. The set consists of 4 pieces to create a soft natural makeup look. Included you have Nudies all over face colour, Nudies all over face highlight, Magnetic Luminous Eye Colour (Praia a golden shadow) and Lip Glace in Nude 4 (a pink nude). All of which come with pencil sharpener, tin case and pink travel bag. Such a gorgeous set.

RRP £59.00 Available at (10% off Black Friday deal at) BEAUTY BAY* also available at full price CULT BEAUTY. 

NATASHA DENONA – I truly believe as far as high-end eye shadow palettes go, Natasha Denonas are the best. They look expensive and the buttery formula makes for easy blending and they last all day, even on oily lids (I speak for experience). So, I have picked my two faves for you to feast your eyes on. You won’t want to gift these you will want them for yourselves!

GLAM PALETTE – encased in pearlescent magnetic close packaging with good sized compact mirror are 15 cool toned neutrals. A good mix of matte, shimmer and sparkle shades with directions under each where to place for the most beautiful neutral glam looks. I especially love that there are directions on this palette on where to place the product. Not everyone is queen of the blending, it takes practice so this will be fun to play with to get those blending skills perfected.


BRONZE PALETTE – encased in a similar packaging to GLAM this one’s bronze in colour and in 15 shades. Deep coppers rose golds and golds in a mixture of matte, shimmer and sparkle. We may not be travelling anywhere for bronzing this winter, but we can definitely add some bronze shadow to glam up our face mask covered faces instead.


TOO FACED LIP INJECTION SET ** - on a scale of cuteness 1-10 this gets 11. Three lip plumping glosses in holiday shades of original, sugar cookie & pumpkin pie. Not only do the shades have holiday names they smell like them too (drool). I think this makes the cutest gift especially for teens and young adults.

RRP £24.00 Available at BOOTS* & JOHN LEWIS

IT COSMETICS – A brand that created makeup with real results. Taking our skin and all its flaws and enhancing its beauty. I am a real fan of IT Cosmetics and recommend them a lot to my followers, friends and family. Especially their base products that create the most perfect looking skin. I have picked 3 of their products which I simply think are amazing and I think you will agree.

CC+ FULL COVERAGE CREAM – This base is absolutely amazing. Not only does it give a full coverage but it also colour corrects at the same time getting rid of any redness, tiredness and pigmentation. It also minimises appearance of pores, conceals blemishes and hydrates. I have been using this for years and is my favourite alternative to foundation. Trust me when I say this will last all day too. It does not budge! If you have a fan of makeup bases to gif for this xmas I recommend this.

RRP £32.00

YOUR SKIN BUT BETTER FOUNDATION – It Cosmetics newest team member. A lightweight foundation with medium coverage. It gives a natural no makeup/makeup look still covering imperfections. As a fan of barely there makeup this has become my newest favourite makeup product. If I want to go heavier I just layer with powders. Its truly gorgeous. Not as thick at the CC Cream but still for me a fantastic coverage.

RRP £32.00

SUPERHERO MASCARA – A very good non smudging mascara that gives length, stretch and volume.

GADE – Newly launched in the UK and exclusive to QVC this premium makeup brand looks super luxe but is so affordable compared to its competitors. It has the sleekest packaging and the formulas are gorgeous.

EVERGLOW HYDRATING ILLUMINATOR – This rivals a well-known competitor (can you guess who?) with a hydrating formula and a blinging glow. Formulated with hydrating plant derived squalene, luminous oils and ultra fine pearls for a flawless, hydrating, glow up finish.

The sponge applicator allows you to dab onto the skin and blend with your finger. Suitable for face and body I especially love this product for the inner corners of my eye when creating a glitzy eye or mixed with foundation for an all over glow.

RRP £29.00 Available at QVC.CO.UK as a pack of two shades GILDED & BEAM

CRYSTAL LIGHTS LIPGLOSS - Available in 10 high sine shades these glosses are stunning. The sleek acrylic packaging contains a mirror and light so you can apply easily even in the darkest nightclubs of Soho London.  

The formula contains light reflective crystal pearls giving your lips the glossiest look without the sticky feel. I like to pop a little over my lipsticks to give an ultra glam day to night look. Perfect for some Christmas sparkle.

RRP £15.00 each Available at QVC.CO.UK

VELVETEEN BROW BUILDER – A duo brow styler with precision angled pencil and sponge powder applicator to set. I am absolutely loving how easy this is to use. A cute little stocking filler I say to keep brows on fleek.

RRP £14.00 Available at QVC.CO.UK

PIXI EYE REFLECTION SHADOW PALETTE (NATURAL BEAUTY) ** – A palette made up of 12 buttery neutrals. The perfect palette for those that like to keep their eye shadow looks simple. This is in my top 5 palettes ever and its so affordable too. I especially use this palette for day time looks I choose 1 colour and sweep over my lids. No fall out and staying power. Because the colours are all similar they all complement one another so you can create many looks just from this one palette.


I Hope you have enjoyed looking at all these pretties and have found yourself ticking off the gift list.
