Beauty gift ideas 2019

If you know me, you'll know I love beauty - my stash of cleansers is slowly taking over the bathroom, and my office drawers are crammed full of lipstick, foundation and various eyeshadow palettes. With that in mind, I've tried out some bits that I think would make the perfect gift for the beauty lover in your life...

Mirror, mirror in my suitcase

As someone who travels fairly often, I know the struggle when it comes to trying to do your make-up in really shoddy hotel or Airbnb lighting. When Modern Mirror Designs reached out to me to see if I wanted to try their portable Hollywood X-Press Personal Make Up Mirror, I knew I had to give it a go - and what a game changer! It's much bigger than using the mirror in a palette, and the light around the edge (you can change the setting to whatever you want) makes doing your make-up a doddle. BUY HERE FOR UNDER £30

Bang tidy

I have 5 drawers full of make up and skincare in my office, and I keep a select few in a make up bag in my room which is where I actually get ready. However, I've recently found that the 'select few' products just aren't enough, and I like to have choices. So I needed a bigger make up bag in my life! I was in touch with the team at Beautify and it seemed like the perfect moment to try their Grey 2 Tier Make Up Case. It's velvet with rose gold zips, and it's just absolutely stunning. Definitely the perfect dressing table accessory, it fits loads in and feels really good quality. Such a good gift for beauty lovers this Christmas! BUY HERE FOR UNDER £30

Kiss and make up

Buying make up can be difficult, but when you get it right it's such a good gift. I'm not the sort of person to just buy myself some luxury make up, but I really do love a fancy lipstick and expensive foundation. Without further ado, here are some of the best luxury make up products (in my humble opinion) that you could treat your beauty-lover to this Christmas...

đź’„DiorSkin Mineral Nude Luminizer
đź’„Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette
đź’„Gerard Cosmetics Scented Setting Spray
đź’„Juvia's Place The Nubian 2 Eyeshadow Palette
đź’„Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick
đź’„Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops
đź’„Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick

Double, bubble, toil and trouble

Bath/skincare products are a sure fire winner at Christmas. If whoever you're buying for has a favourite brand, then you definitely can't go wrong! Pre-made gift sets are ideal, especially if whoever you're buying for has a favourite brand. For example, Baylis & Harding offer something different for everyone: as well as the usual bits they also have a range of men's products, and the Beauticology range is perfect for teenagers. They sent me loads of their gift sets, and everything looks so well put together and smells amazing to boot.

Soap & Glory are a brand you can't go wrong with at Christmas, too, whether it's standalone products or gift sets! Some of my favourite products from them are the Righteous Butter*, the Sugar Crush shower gel and the Hand Food hand cream. Find the range HERE starting at just £3.

This year, Wilko have got some cracking gift sets - you can pick up branded ones in there from the likes of Nivea, Dove and Lynx, but their own brand ones* are great too. The packaging is really pretty and you get a good range of body butters, shower gels, scrubs and more. Starting from £2, you can pick them up in store or online.

So there you have it - plenty of beauty gifting options for Christmas 2019. Let me know in the comments what your perfect beauty gift would be!! P.S when you're Christmas shopping make sure you have some sort of cash back extension on your browser, because you're basically just getting free money back for your purchases. Use Quidco but there's also Top Cashback - just a little tip.
