Got a girl (or guy) in your life who lives for a cracking beauty buy? Well, we’ve got their special something sorted. Whether they’re a teen brow guru, a slave to shadow or a glitter fiend, there’s something here to keep everyone, of all ages, happy – at least until the Boxing Day sales :)
The Disney doll
The Disney trend is not going anywhere, and we know why. Who doesn’t want to be whisked off their feet by a handsome brute like the beast (just mind the stubble rash, mate). These dissolvable Beauty & The Beast Bath Petals are perfect for any wannabe Belle, and they smell like a rose garden… we can’t believe they haven’t sold out!
The colour queen
Know someone who likes to play with every colour in the crayon box? Bleach London is the brand for them. This customisable palette allows you to choose the perfect range of glitters, highlighters or super-bright shadows for your pal. We’re obsessed with Bleach London Glitterati in Berwick Street Floor for starters – it’s the most festive red glitter on the high street! The bleach brushes are also a great stocking filler, starting at just a few quid.
The rose-gold gal
Rose gold is surely the biggest style trend of the last few years, and you’ll know a fan as soon as you walk into their blinged-out bedroom. You can’t go wrong with the ever-stylish blogger Tanya Burr’s A Little Pick Me Up makeup bag… then check out our full rose gold gift guide for loads more inspo.
The pampering princess
If your pal is more into JOMO than FOMO, help them spend January locked away in style with a posh Baylis & Harding La Maison Crème Brulee & Cocoa Decanter of bath foam... it’s an oldie but a goodie. It smells like a delicious dessert and foams up beautifully for a nice long soak. Plus, the gorgeous packaging is absolute Insta goals. Tick, tick!
Your mane mate
When you’re spending money on yourself, you’re less likely to put your pounds into spendy shampoo – there are just so many more exciting things to buy. So spoil your mate with the most enviable hair (we’re thinking long, bouncy and maybe a bit high maintenance) by treating her to this hair duo of limited-edition OGX Shampoo & Conditioner Gift Pack in Pink Sugar Plum. They’ll thank you when they swish downstairs on Boxing Day.
The Pixiwoo wannabe
If your mate fancies themselves as the next big beauty blogger, they’re going to need a brush stash. Not only is this Real Techniques Illuminate & Accentuate set created by MUAs Sam and Nic Chapman with performance in mind – the brushes have all made their way into the Superdrugloves team’s bag, and we especially love the domed shadow brush – but the ombré chrome handles make them look fancy on your dressing table, too. And the synthetic bristles mean they’re cruelty free and vegan. Winner.
The mirror lover
Got someone who’s always staring at their own reflection (we all know one)? Get them this amazing Superdrug Studio London LED The Makeup Light Mirror, to make sure their beauty game is always strong. The tiny lights illuminate any smudge, streak or imperfection, making this a great gift for anyone who likes to look perfect.
The next Megan Markle
Got a friend who’s a fan of the next princess’s toned-down neutral look? This is the PERFECT gift. We’ve been blown away by the quality of Nip+Fab cosmetics pigment and colour payoff in 2017, and this Exclusive Black Friday Triple Impact Makeup Kit is STILL available. That’s a gorgeous neutral shadow palette, four blushers, six highlights, primer, mascara and two flattering lip colours for just £37. Better than a diamond ring (as if).
