Sometimes it can be tough choosing makeup for other people because you worry about if they will actually use it. All of these products are from great brands, are excellent quality and are very versatile – they will work for anyone. If you are deciding between makeup or skincare, I recommend choosing from these makeup picks. These are the perfect last-minute addition to someone’s gift or even their main present!

I am so tempted to buy myself some of these having now picked them out. Two of the items I already own – take a look at my reviews of the products –

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Review

Charlotte Tilbury – Instant Look In A Palette



Having tried and tested so many skincare products, I know how difficult it can be to find the perfect match for your skin, let alone choose them for someone else. If you already know what someone uses or know their skin type – chances are you are going to make a pretty good choice. If you are feeling a little stuck – I would say go for the set that has a couple of different products in, hopefully, they will like some of them. Who doesn’t love trying out new products though? Even if they don’t work for you it’s great to have a pamper.

Have a read of the products I have already tried and tested –

Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay

GlamGlow Masks Review


Let me know if you have purchased any of these sets. I would love to know which other sets were your favourites this year. What’s on your wishlist this Christmas?

    Yes, it is difficult Sophie, isn’t it! If you know the person pretty well then chances are you can make a good choice, but otherwise yes, i agree that minis are definitely the way to go!

    Love your recommendations! I prefer to buy skincare as a present over makeup because like you said, you don’t know if they will use it. I’d have to know someone really well to know what kind of makeup to buy them. I’m in love with the makeup you chose, though. I’d probably keep it all for myself!

    You’ve got some lovely things in here like the naked heat palette and the too faced lip sets, i feel like you really can’t go wrong with cute lil makeup gifts x

      Same Ellie!! Sometimes I get so caught up in wondering if the person will actually like/use the product. Just go with one that has several minis in, it’s always nice to try new bits!! It’s like gifting one of the subscription boxes – not the end of the world if you don’t like the product xx

      Definitely Alys!! I had no idea what was actually on sale until I did this as I haven’t been buying new makeup. Hope you have a lovely Christmas x
