CHRISTMAS CRACKED: BEAUTY





Welcome to my first gift guide for Christmas 2015!
This time last year I wasn't a blogger, but I read lots and lots of blogger Christmas gift guides and took a ton of inspiration from them all, there were some great finds amongst them and that's what I aspire to bring you, with my gift guides this Christmas.
I just had to start off with BEAUTY because I am lusting over so many beautiful beauty products this year. I am a sucker for luxury beauty, there is nothing like it. My Christmas list this year is FULL of beauty products that I really, really want. I usually buy things for myself if I want something so Christmas is never a big deal for me, however this year I have restrained myself because Harper is understanding Christmas now and I want to create the most magical experience for her, so I have been saving, saving, saving. 
I will be doing most of my Christmas shopping over the course of Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday, I will be creating a post for you guys on where to find the best deals so keep your eyes peeled for that. But for now, soak yourself in the lustrous list of beauty products that must make your Christmas list this year!



MAKE UP 
Forever & always at the top of my Christmas list - make up. Yes, it's a necessity to most of us ladies but there's the few unnecessary splurges that we save to ask for at Christmas, the following are mine. 





Charlotte Tilbury The Perfect Nude Kiss Lipstick Kit In Nude Kate, Charlotte Tilbury £49.00
Too Faced French Kisses Melted Liquified Lipstick Set, Too Faced £18.00
Contour 2 Multi-Use Contour Set, Contour Cosmetics £42.00
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pro Palette, Beauty Bay £90.00
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, Debenhams £29.00


FRAGRANCE GIFT SETS
I always, always, ALWAYS get Marc Jacobs Daisy for Christmas from Justin. It's my signature scent and usually lasts me 8 months, so for the last 3 months I try out other fragrances until I receive my new bottle. I usually do this to try to find a more affordable scent but nothing resinates with me like Daisy does. Let me know your signature scent in the comments below!

SKIN CARE GIFT SETS
I hate spending my own money on skincare, I don't know why I just hate it, so Christmas is the perfect opportunity for me to get lots of new skincare to see me through until I ask again for my birthday in May. There are some beautiful gift sets out there this year for skincare and here are my favourites. 




NUXE Limited Edition 10th Anniversary Collection, FeelUnique £49.00
Clinique Smart & Smooth Gift Set, FeelUnique £42.70
Estee Lauder Age-Prevention Essentials Skincare Gift Set, John Lewis £37.80
Laura Mercier Sweet Temptations Creme Brulee Duet, House Of Fraser £35.00
Origins Moisture and Be Merry Gift Set, House Of Fraser £45.00


MAKE UP GIFT SETS
These are my favourite things to buy for my sister and my girlfriends at Christmas, they are just so so easy to get hold of and there's so many brands to choose from. This way they can try a range of products to see if they get on with them or not instead of splurging on something that doesn't work for them. My favourite to give are the BENEFIT gift sets but I prefer to receive Estee Lauder OR the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick Wardrobe *hint hint Justin/Nicolle/Mother*



BEAUTY GIFTS UNDER £15
These gift sets are perfect if you're a student or genuinely don't have the money to splash. No matter what your budget is there is something luxurious for all. These products are also great for secret santa, picking up last minute if you accidentally forget someone or stock fillers. 



Tanya Burr Gingerbread Trio, Superdrug £6.00
Zoella So Cute Coffret Set, Superdrug £12.00
Soap & Glory Once Upon A Lime, Boots £10.00
Sanctuary Favourite Florals Tin, Boots £14.00
Soap & Glory Belle Of The Ball, Boots £12.00


BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS 
Remember when dairy milk advent calendars were as good as it got? Me too. What a time to be alive with the influx of beauty advent calendars! 2015 has seen more and more brands getting involved in 12-30 days of beautiful miniature and some full size products that we can look forward to in the lead up to Christmas. Here are the ones that I am cooing over this Christmas. 





Makeup Revolution Advent Calendar, Superdrug £45.00
Beauty Advent Calendar, The Body Shop £60.00
Charlotte Tilbury Book Of Magic, Selfridges £150.00
