Part 3 of this year’s gift guide, focusing on make up and scent.
The best make-up and perfume picks for under the Christmas tree – whether you’re giving or
receiving! You can see the best Gift Sets and Luxury Buys in my previous posts, too.ByTerry Baume de Rose, £39 & Rouge Expert Click Stick, £24.50
A perfect duo. The cult balm hydrates lips and the new 3-in-1 that delivers pigment, precision
and hydration.

YSL Black Opium Eau de Toilette, £54
This addictive scent makes for the perfect designer gift.

Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Stick Eyeshadow, £22
Not only getting the top spot for packaging (can you see the pencil shaped lids in the photos?)
but also the easiest to apply creamy eyeshadow and liner. A great gift for any make up lover.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noir nail polish, £17
Gift giving is all about surprise, and these incredible scented nail varnishes will put a smile
on anyone’s face.

Estée Lauder Sultry Nudes Palette & Modern Muse Nuit perfume
Make the most of the night with the latest addition to the Modern Muse for the after-dark
moments. Pair with my go-to nudes palette for your evening look.

NARS Dual Intensity blush in Adoration, £30
Don’t be fooled by the bright colours – these two shades of blush give you the most
incredible youthful glow thanks to the velvety, creamy feel of the products.

& Other Stories Sardonyx Fire Roll on Perfume, £12
I’ve always been really impressed with the scents at & Other Stories, and this is no exception.
Mixing a dark amber inferno with the scent of blooms, this roll on perfume is the perfect
addition to any make up bag.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume, £45
A longer lasting equivalent of giving someone the most incredible bouquet of flowers aka
pretty damn amazing.

Le Métier de Beauté Precision Liquid Eyeliner, £40
I mean, how often are eyeliner award winning?

Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette, £28
This incredibly versatile palette is the perfect starter for girls wanting to try out new looks. And
for any novices – there’s even a diagram of where to use each shade on the back of the box.

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick, £19
If you’re looking for a lip colour that actually stays on all night, including eating, drinking
and kissing – this is your guy. Tested by yours truly.

MAC Spellbinder eyeshadow in Retrogade, £16
Magnetic eyeshadow. Yep. Really. The pigment has been magnetised to prevent that irritating
eyeshadow fallout and for the powder to retain it’s shape in the pot. For any make up enthusiasts
this is a must – it’s incredible! The only bad news is that these are limited edition and running for
the next 6 weeks so go get them while you can!

And if you’re looking for outfit inspiration… these metallic loafers add a festive twist to any look!
