The ultimate make-up gift guide

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

The thing about make-up is that it’s not just pretty on your skin – it’s beautiful in its packaging too. Bright, pastel, sparkly or matte, it makes the perfect gift for a beauty-loving mom, sister, cousin or friend. If you’ve got a little extra to spend this festive season, or if you’re looking for a reason to go all out and spoil someone, why not treat them to one of these little beauties? Only problem is that you might be tempted to keep it for yourself instead!

    I so want everything on this gift guide. I am one of those people guilty of buying a gift for someone and then keeping it for myself and getting them something else or going and buying another of the same item for the giftee. Who else does this?

    This is definitely a great gift guide for anyone wanting to be a bit indulgent. I usually treat myself to something from Bobbi Brown.
