Have you left your Christmas shopping until the last minute again? Me too. Every year you promise yourself it will be different – you won’t be one of the thousands of people at the mall frantically trying to figure out what to get your loved ones. But every year, nothing changes. As a fellow procrastinator I feel your pain and want to take some of that stress away from you, so I’ve made a list of amazing beauty gifts for the glam loved ones in your life that they are sure to love!
Chanel Rouge Allure - Limited Edition No5 Holiday 2021 Collection in Emblematique
Is there a better gift than Chanel? While No 5 is a classic fragrance it isn’t for everyone, but this lipstick is. This year, Chanel has released a limited edition homage to the fragrance that Marilyn Monroe made iconic with super luxe packaging embossed with the number 5. A warm toned red, this limited edition lipstick will suit almost everyone and we all need a red that will make us feel like a million bucks.
MAC Hyper Real Glow/Hypnotizing Holiday in Step Bright Up/Alche-me
The candy inspired holiday packaging is completely adorable, but the limited edition mixture of two highlighters is the real winner here. The deeper golden bronze shade swirled together with the lighter shade makes it a universally appealing highlighter for a huge range of skin tones. We’re all tired of cool toned highlighters not working for deeper skin tones and this is a welcome relief from that!
Lisa Eldridge The Foundation
While foundation might seem like an odd Christmas gift, there are some foundations that are so good an exception can be made. This foundation is arguably the most exciting foundation launch of 2021 and if there’s a makeup lover in your life I am sure they’re dying to give it a go! If you need to find their perfect foundation match, sneak into their makeup drawer to see what product they currently use. Enter that info into our tool and we’ll tell you what they’ll be in Lisa!
Tarte Lash Lifting Trio
This gift pack may have the cutest eyelash curler that I have ever seen. My teenage self in 2008 with her bedazzled Hiptop would be SO jealous that 2021 me could potentially receive this as a Christmas gift. Not only does this come with the glam eyelash curler but also Tarte’s eyelash primer and mascara. If you’re feeling super generous and love what Tarte is throwing out, you could combine this with a travel size of their famous Shape Tape Concealer (see above on how to find the perfect shade match.)
Giorgio Armani Si Premium Set
Alright, I think this is my favourite gift idea on the whole list. This year, Armani has put together an amazing set with its perennially popular fragrance Si and a satin finish lipstick packaged in a gorgeous clutch handbag. The handbag is marked with the Giorgio Armani symbol on top and is a perfect versatile bag for party season. Buying a fragrance for someone can be scary, it is so subjective. That being said, in all my years of fragrance collecting, the most universally complimented is Si (though keep in mind it is very sweet and feminine, so I definitely don’t recommend it for more woody or musky fans).
Morphe x Pony Eyeshadow Palette
Pastels are back and I am here for it. This collaboration between Pony Park and Morphe is packed full of wearable matte neutrals and fun galaxy-inspired colours. It’s one of those palettes where every single shade can work with every other shade and many of the shades can double up as highlighters or blushes. It’s whopping number of shades is a classic Morphe move but that is what makes it such a great gift – there’s a colour combination to suit every mood.
Pleasing The Perfect Polish Set
Harry Styles. Enough said.
