As many of us will know, beauty is a huge part of most of our lives in different ways, whether that be makeup or self care and skincare products. So many of my fellow beauty influencers love makeup products and skincare products alike as they both naturally come hand in hand. Many MUA’s will tell you the importance of skincare products on top of makeup sets as it’s vital to look after your skin, especially when you wear makeup often. So since these are a few of my favourite things (yes like the song) I thought I’d create a little gift guide based around them!
Although many people have more palettes than they will ever truly need, you have to admit that they are a great gift addition to a gift box. There are so many brands with endless options of palettes from textures, colours and unique packaging, the list is endless and perfect for many types of makeup lover. The same goes for lipsticks and glosses. Nowadays there are incredible eye liners in both liquid and pencil, mascaras, highlighters and contouring products which are a great addition to a homemade beauty gift box mix. I also think a great gift is a beautifully scented fixing spray.
Here are some picks to get you inspired!
LUSH Makeup range – One I can vouch for is this! I am LUSH obsessed. I had my first lot of makeup gifted to me by LUSH and the selection is truly beautiful, not to mention ethical, cruelty free and vegan.
The Evening Rose Lookbook Makeup set – If you’re looking to buy a makeup set for your lucky loved one, look no further than The MakeUp revolution beauty sets. They are full of incredible makeup products and are affordable, especially when the deals are on. Revolution are one of my favourite brands. They have makeup to suit all including those of pale or dark skin complexions. This Makeup set is just one of the options!
Superdrug Studio London Lip gloss vault – This Superdrug Studio London gloss set is a perfect little gift for the beauty lover. With there being so many shades in this Lip vault it is a great gamble for a gift as it means you have more chances of helping them acquire their perfect shade. You could also buy this set and distribute different ones from it into multiple peoples gift boxes!
Superdrug Studio London lash set 8 Piece – For those looking to buy beauty gifts that aren’r makeup like palettes and liners and such, how about some fake lashes for those obsessed with luscious long lashes. They can be a great addition to someones beauty collections.
Revolution Contour and Define set – If you’re looking for a smaller gift set for the beauty lover, a contour set is wonderful, especially this Revolution set.
Superdrug Studio London Shimmer Highlighter Drops Beauty Box – These are another great set of products for those who love all things beauty. We all love a good highlighter and this beauty box is literally the epitome of highlighters providing a huge range of shades and shimmers. You could either gift the whole set to someone or distribute the individual shades to different people.
Barry M Pride Glitter bundle – This bundle is quite literally sparkling! It would make an awesome gift to anyone who loves to sparkle and shine. It’s the perfect MUA gift for those who enjoy experimenting with looks.
There are so many amazing skincare items to suit all skin types and I find it is a great opportunity to help someone find their pampering routines by providing them with a gorgeous set of skincare products. I know for sure I feel so content when I’m doing a beautiful calming skincare routine so finding the perfect products is so important. Here are some wonderful products I recommend for gifts!
Revolution Skincare Spritz like you mean it collection – This makes a great gift as it perfectly compliments the persons skincare routine, especially when they use makeup often. This is a wide selection of spritz’s for different skincare needs.
Revolution Skincare Peace & Love set – This set is to die for! I may have to put this on my list to Santa as I am in love with calming products to help settle the mood and bring my mind and skin to a balance, especially during this bizarre time with lockdown and such. Stress levels can be damaging so find some peace, calm and contentment in your pampering skincare routine.
Wake me up caffeine collection – This caffeine collection is great for those who love a boost in their skincare routine!
Revolution Skincare CBD Oil and Spritz set – This set is an introduction and great addition to CBD skincare. I love my CBD facial cream and spritz and would definitely recommend this set as a gift to start or add to someones CBD skincare journey.
Revolution Skincare totally tonics collection – Just as the Spritz collection is an awesome gift, this tonic collection is too. The Revolution tonics smell incredible and make skin feel nourished and loved.
Revolution Skincare starter pack Always Extra Collection – This starter pack is great as a gift or stocking filler. It’s a perfect introduction into Revolution Skincare products and routines. This set includes an oil, elixir and serum.
Alongside skincare and makeup gifts beauty accessories can be a great gift addition to someones gift box. I’m talking Makeup brushes, nail polishes and lamps, nail files and nails care, beauty bags for makeup and toiletries, mirrors, containers and all kinds of fun accessories.
LED Nail lamp & polishes – This is a great addition to a gift box for a loved one who enjoys their beauty and self care routines. Especially with it being lockdown and many of us can’t go to our favourite salons, we have to find ways to bring our treatments to us so having your own LED nail lamp and some compatible nail polish is perfect! I had a nail lamp and polishes for Christmas last year and I haven’t made a single trip to salons since. You can get a range of lamps ranging from high prices to extremely affordable ones less than £10 like the one linked above!
XX Revolution LuXX Brush set – This brush set is just one of the beautiful brush sets Revolution have to offer! They are beautiful with their red handle and the bag it comes in is so elegant and suave! If you’d like to buy someone brush sets, Superdrug and Revolution are a great place to start!
Superdrug Studio London Light up vanity mirror – This mirror is a great beauty accessory for beauty lovers of all ages or those who want their bedrooms to feel like a backstage dressing room for stars! This is just the start of awesome mirrors. You can find many options from a huge range of local shops!
Basic Train Makeup bag – Alike this bag there are many affordable bags you can buy for a beauty lover! You could even put lots of small gifts inside and wrap up the bag so that when they open it and think it’s just a bag, there are actually lots of hidden goodies. I have a little trinket-y pink blush velvet box that I put my LUSH Makeup range in and it’s divine! It would be a great gift especially if the box secretly contains product.
Thank you for reading. I hope this beauty and skincare gift guide has helped inspire you. Let me know in the comments.
