CHRISTMAS BEAUTY MUST HAVES THIS DECEMBER – It sometimes feels as though beauty addicts have everything they need already. They collect samples, indulge in new makeup collections, and come Christmas time the latest products usually surround their trees. Although the term “beauty” spans a broad range of sub-categories (including make-up, bath products, jewelry, and hair accessories), when it comes to the gift-giving season, we’re usually stumped for original ideas.

So, what do you buy the beauty-lover in your life that she doesn’t already own? To help make your Christmas shopping a little easier, here are four unique gift ideas that promise to deliver true seasonal sparkle to the women in your life.

Lip Lacquer, Louboutin’s

Christian Louboutin’s Loubilaque Lip Lacquer is presented like a crown jewel, but its stunning appearance is not its only asset. The unique formula creates incredible shine and magnifies light on to the tips, resulting in a patent leather gloss and long-lasting color. The lacquer also uses enhanced pigment technology to compliment any skin tone using just one coat. It retails at around $75 from Selfridges, which may seem like a steep price to pay for a lip-gloss, but this luxurious lacquer is something genuinely special. Presented in a re-usable jewelry box tied with a silk ribbon, this gift is sure to make your sister, girlfriend, mother, or colleague feel a million dollars this Christmas.

Guerlain’s Gold Pearls Powder, John Lewis

Encased in a ridged, gold ball case, this powder will fit perfectly in your winter handbag and make you feel like the queen of luxury each time you use it. Not only does it look the very picture of elegance and style, but it will also bring radiance and warmth to your skin, helping to fight dullness and reflect light during the chillier months. Gold pearls are combined with white beads to create a “gold light harmony” that is perfect for any skin tone or type. The powder is currently on sale at $54.00 from John Lewis, but stocks are expected to sell out before Christmas – so don’t leave it too late to make your purchase.


 Christmas Dress, Beulah

Designer fashion brand Beulah London has such a stunning Autumn/Winter collection that it’s impossible to pick just one item from their offering. The company provides a selection of high-quality dress, blouses, trousers, and more, as well as bespoke garments made to measure. What’s more, each purchase helps support the Beulah Trust: a humanitarian mission to help victims of human trafficking escape abuse and find sustainable work, so your money will be going to a good cause. Gift-wrapping is available on all orders, along with a special handwritten note.

“Hair,” by Sam McKnight

“Hair” is a photography book displaying the hairstyles of fashion icons, such as Princess Diana, Tilda Swinton, and Kate Moss. If you know someone who’s always looking for hair inspiration, this could be the perfect gift. You can find McKnight’s collection on Amazon for around $37.45 – a reasonable price to pay for such a timeless gift.
