The Best Makeup Gifts For Christmas 2022


Rare Beauty

Perfect Strokes Mascara & Liner Set, € 31,50

If They Love Rare Beauty…
Selena Gomez's Rare Beauty has been one of our top selling makeup brands since it launched with us at the beginning of the year. This dreamy duo is perfect for anyone who loves makeup, Selena Gomez and mascara. The latter has been one of the brand's bestsellers as the vegan formula offers length, volume and definition in one easy stroke, and you can layer it up for a more intense look. This makeup gift is worth £36, so you'll be saving yourself £9 too.



Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Elephant, N/A

If They’re Obsessed With Makeup…
This palette from Hourglass is a collectable. Made up of blushers, bronzers and the brand’s iconic Ambient Lighting Powders, this palette will give them the tools to mimic the effects of the most flattering lighting. The sustainable, limited-edition packaging provides extra wow factor. Hurry though, the Tiger palette has already sold out!


Laura Mercier

Wildflower Palette, € 59,00

The Flattering Eye Palette
If you want to treat them to something they'll use right down to the pan, we recommend Laura Mercier's new Wildflower Palette. The selection of neutral matte, satin and sparkly shades can be worn alone or layered up to create a sultry smoky eye.



All-Star Orgasm Blush, N/A

If You Know They Wear NARS Blusher…
While you might not know what foundation or lipstick they’re wearing, if they always wear NARS Blusher in Orgasm you’ll know. It’s one of those products that gives such a gorgeous glow it garners questions around what you’re wearing. If they do wear the iconic shade, then this limited-edition compact will make their Christmas.


By Terry

Mini Baume de Rose Crystalline, € 18,00

If You Have A £15 Budget…
This is one of the bestselling makeup buys at Space NK and for good reason. From the delicate rose scent to the nourishing shea butter infused formula, this liquid balm leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth. You can also use it soften cuticles.



Lotus Radiance Highlighter, € 80,00

The Glow-Getting Compact
Every year, Chantecaille brings out a gorgeous compact and for 2022, the brand has gone all out and unveiled three. The blusher, blurring powder and this highlighter are all inspired by the delicate lotus plant and have been formulated to leave the most natural-looking glow. Our favourite is the highlighter as it feels like a cream and enhances your brow and cheek bones so elegantly and effortlessly.


Charlotte Tilbury

Beauty Light Wand in Pillow Talk, € 35,00

If You Have A £30 Budget…
Charlotte Tilbury's Beauty Light Wands are in high demand. While you might have missed the chance to snap up the gift set, we promise they won't be disappointed to unwrap one of these on Christmas morning. The glow-giving formula helps to accentuate cheek and brow bones, as well as give the illusion of plumper lips when used on your Cupid's bow.



Explicit Content Climax Mascara Duo, € 22,40

A Gift For Them (And For You)…
NARS Explicit Content Climax Mascara Duo is seriously good value for money – it’s worth £50. With this makeup gift set you receive two full-size Climax Mascaras which you could gift to a very special someone, or you could keep one for yourself and give one to a friend. Either way, if you’re looking for an exceptionally good mascara you should add this to your basket pronto.


Rae Morris

The Travel Set, € 359,00

If You’re Looking For A Show-Stopper…
Rae Morris' luxury set of brushes will fit the bill. Featuring seven of the brand's bestselling makeup brushes, this travel set will last them a lifetime (as long as they look after them properly).



La Sélection Bâtons de Couleur, € 80,00

If They Love Luxury Brands…
They’ll love this multitasking trio from Byredo. The Batons de Couleur can be used across eyes, lips, cheeks and anywhere else they want to experiment with colour. In this luxury makeup gift set they’ll receive a gorgeous rich brown, a softer champagne hue and a sparkly navy that they can apply using their fingers, a brush or a sponge. There’s a choice of a black, plum or deep teal pouch for storage too.



Glass Skin Edit, N/A

If They Follow The Trends…
It’s likely that they’ll have already attempted the glass skin beauty trend, but this kit will give them everything they need to tap into the look and achieve that mirror like glow. Featuring the bestselling Banana Lowlighter, Glass Powder, Glass Paper and even a Mini Buffing Brush, this makeup gift set includes everything they need to get glass skin.
