Christmas Gift Ideas that Will Make Any Beauty Lover Swoon

We all have that one makeup obsessed friend or family member in our life. Their vanity table is overflowing with brushes, creams, fragrances and palettes, but don’t tell them they have enough: that new red lipstick has an entirely different undertone than the 20 others they own. The Beauty Advisors at London Drugs get it: as self-professed beauty junkies themselves, they know what it’s like to lust for the perfect fragrance or fancy new eyeshadow palette. To help make Christmas shopping easy, they have rounded up the top gift ideas to make any beauty lover’s Christmas merry and bright.


For the Fragrance Fanatic

Juicy Couture’s I Love Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum is the perfect fragrance for the glamorous rebel on your list, according to London Drugs’ expert Beauty Advisors. The scent has jasmine and pink honeysuckle at the heart, with notes of taffy apple, lively red currant and sparkling mandarin: it’s hard not to feel boldly glamorous while wearing this scent!

 

si

For the sophisticated and confident woman, Giorgio Armani’s Si Eau de Parfum Limited Edition makes an excellent gift. This scent, which is new and exclusive to London Drugs, has a chic yet intense scent with notes of black current nectar, modern chypre and blond wood musk. Perfect for the free, passionate, vibrant woman.

 

 

For the Makeup Maven

For young beauty buffs, it’s all about experimentation when it comes to makeup. For tweens or teens, the Beauty Advisors recommend a compact makeup kit like Beauty 101’s 25-Piece Kit, which comes packed with a huge variety of shades and products for them to play with.

 

beauty-scene

 

To really wow the budding makeup lover, Beauty Scene’s whopping 181-piece makeup kit is a fantastic find. The kit includes everything from cream and powder eyeshadows to blushes and face powders, not to mention two handy cards with tips for creating some classic makeup looks.

 

 

For the Skincare Savvy

blissbliss-mask
If their vanity is covered in serums, face masks, skin creams, eye creams, and a whole bunch of other creams you didn’t even know existed, then it’s safe to say your giftee is probably a skincare junkie. Surprise them with a collection of the most pampering skincare gifts from Bliss Spa, like their Multi-‘Face’-eted All-In-One Anti-Aging Clay Mask, and Blood Orange + White Pepper Body Butter Maximum Moisture Cream.

 

lise-watier

 

Every beauty lover knows the importance of good skincare, to create a flawless base for makeup application. The Lise Watier Mini Glam Set comes complete with a Lift & Firm 3D Flash Lift Radiance Vial and a pair of 3D Lift Eye Patches: perfect for some at-home pampering. The Radiance Vials are like a beauty makeover in a jar, instantly restoring skin radiance, while the Eye Patches will give an instant mini-eye lift. The set also comes with mascara, lipstick and eyeliner to complete a flawless look.

 

For the Stocking Stuffer

elf

Ask any self-professed beauty lover, and they’ll tell you beauty blenders really are a girl’s best friend. Stash a set of e.l.f’s Blended Beauty Sponges in their stocking and you’ll win some serious brownie points.

 

 

nyx

 

Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks are one of the hottest items recently launched by the mega-hot beauty brand NYX Cosmetics. Add a limited edition set of 3 to a beauty lover’s stocking, and they’ll be swooning over these of coveted lipsticks that are both super-pigmented and waterproof.

7 Resolutions for Beauty Buffs

The New Year is a time to look back on the past year, reminisce and maybe resolve to make positive changes. That includes ditching bad beauty habits. London Drugs Beauty Advisors have rounded up the top beauty resolutions from developing a good skincare regimen to tossing expired makeup.

 

  1. Invest in a good skincare regimenneostrata

It’s time to take better care of your skin. This year, invest in a quality skincare regimen that will keep your skin healthy and looking great. NeoStrata’s Glycolic Renewal and Night Repair creams will exfoliate dead skin cells for more radiant and younger looking skin. If you have dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin, try one of Bioderma’s skincare lines which will target your specific skin concern.

The right tools can also improve your skincare routine dramatically. The Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System is 10 times more effective than hand cleansing, thanks to its vibrating and rotating brush.
