Makeup Gift Ideas


Upped your Christmas gift budget? Here are five of my favourite, classic beauty buys under $50 each. These are gorgeous gifts on their own, not just Christmas stocking “fillers”!

Make Up Forever Aqua Cream Colour:  Don’t shun cream eye shadows until you’ve tried these. With a huge colour range from natural, nude pinks through to the gorgeous acqua (pictured above) these are a dream to use (and receive!).  They are also waterproof and versatile – safe to use on the eyes, cheeks and lips! Available at: www.

MAC Matte Bronzer: It’s my go-to product for adding warmth and sculpting the contours of the face. It also doesn’t contain shimmer which makes it the perfect product for creating a “no-makeup” makeup look!

Becca Beach Tint:  Becca does these oil free, water resistant stains for the lips and cheeks so well. They are easy to use, blend and are available in seven gorgeous colour washes – you won’t know which one to choose. My favourites are Peach and Strawberry.

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliners: There’s a reason why this one keeps scooping up all the awards, despite all the other gel liners on the market.  The pigment payoff is amazing and the product doesn’t dry out prematurely. With fourteen colours in the range, it’ll be hard limiting yourself to just one.

CliniqueChubby Sticks: The packaging is fun, the sheen is subtle and the product itself is surprisingly moisturising. Every girl needs to try these lip balms at least once!
