So it’s just over six weeks until Christmas (sorry!) and I’m sat here on a Saturday morning, no makeup on my face and my hair falling in some tangly waves (as above) suddenly starting to worry about what to begin buying for my loved ones. Ever feel like everyone in your family or friendship groups are so hard to buy for? That’s definitely my situation, year after year.
Me, on the other hand, am an extremely easy girl to buy for. I love everything beauty related: skincare, haircare, makeup, tanning… to shop for me, all you would need to do is log onto an online beauty retailer and randomly pick a few items and I’d be the happiest girl in the world.
So using myself as inspiration (easy choice!) I wanted to share a beauty wishlist for this Christmas inspired from browsing Beautyspin – a dedicated skin, hair and cosmetics website. I thought about all the products and gifts that I would love to receive, yet are also wonderful gifts for friends and family… even those hard to shop for ones like mine!
After browsing what I can only describe as ‘beauty heroes’, I rounded up a Top 12 list I’m lusting after, and perhaps I could purchase for some of the ladies in my life…
Beautyspin is one of my new favourite eshops due to the fact it retails a large range of fragrances, skincare, bath and body, makeup, hair care and organic beauty collections at affordable prices. I love using clear and concise easy-to-navigate websites when it comes to getting gift ideas, so I’ve been particularly over using the ‘sets’ categories under certain ranges, to give some gift inspiration. As you can see, my top 12 wishlist items are a little bit of a wide mix, so I’ve listed them below in order of most needed!
1. bareMinerals Get Started Kit,
2. Shisiedo Foundation Brush,
3. Nioxin Hair System Kit
4. Burts Bees Radiance Cream
5. NARS Andy Warhol Lipgloss Kit
6. Revlon ColourStay Concealer
7. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Set
8. Chloe Parfum
9. Lancome Hypnoise Eyes Set
10. Babyliss Hair Styling Tool
11. Clinique 3 Steps Kit
12. Gucci II Eau de Parfum
All these items are available at both Beautyspin.co.uk, who ship internationally with being a worldwide retailer. I especially want to get my hands on the Shiseido Foundation Brush – I don’t actually own a flat brush anymore, but this one looks of a super professional standard and quality, and would be perfect to use for my everyday face.
A few beauty loves on my wishlist are targeted especially for my favourite girls in my life – such as my twin sister, my mum and my best friend – who would love some of the sets like the NARS Andy Warhol Lipgloss set, or the Clinique 3 step.
Us ladies will never pull a face at a carefully chosen makeup, fragrance or beauty set, so I hope my wishlist has gave some inspiration to you guys out there with a few hard-to-buy-for friends and family too…
