A beauty fan will love nothing more than having their stash of make-up, skincare and the like replenished come Christmas. After all, few things feel as good as applying fresh lippie for a night out, indulging in a nourishing body pampering session during the festive season or seeing in the New Year with their best newly manicured foot forward.
But don’t be overwhelmed by the array of dazzling options and panic buy—because that glittery eyeshadow or sparkly lipstick will likely be cast to the back of their bathroom cabinet come spring. Indeed, you want to treat them to pretty darn hard-working classics that they can get ready with all year round.
We’re giving you the gift of some handy inspiration, and have pulled together our pick of the perfect presents for every beauty aficionado—who knows their blending from their buffing and their hydrating from their highlighting. From the best make-up tools and gorgeous nail polishes to the ultimate lip gloss set, these will look seriously good when unwrapped…
