Christmas Gift Guide | Make Up Brushes

I've been obsessed with make up brushes for a while now, so I thought it'd be nice if I put together a little Christmas gift guide dedicated to them. Make up brushes make great gift ideas as there's no such thing as owning too many of them, and who wouldn't want to perfect their application techniques? Since I started using brushes, my make up skills have improved drastically. I currently own around 100 myself. 

Here is a list of my fave gift ideas for Christmas, ranging in prices from £20 to £75. I know it's a bit late, but if you're like me and leave everything to the last minute- you might be able to get some inspiration. 

Monday

BOSS The Scent

This is Hugo Boss' biggest male fragrance launch in a long time- and it's a very good one. BOSS The Scent is a masculine scent that's inspired by the art of male seduction and confidence, and pays tribute to the BOSS man's personal achievements rather than his professional. Nice. 
For the past couple of years, Hugo Boss have been launching fragrances that were almost like brothers to the original BOSS Bottled. BOSS The Scent is completely different, and this is why it's already an incredibly popular scent. Every guy I've tested it on has nothing but positive to say about it.

Gucci Bamboo

Gucci launched their new fragrance, Bamboo in August this year and it's received quite the attention, particularly as there are many mixed reviews out there on the scent. Plus, the gorgeous Gal Gadot is the ambassador for the fragrance.

Monday

007 SEVEN fragrance

SPECTRE is released today in cinemas and I am SO excited to go and see it! I'm such a big Bond fan and have been waiting for the new film for three years. In celebration of the film's release, I bring to you a review of the new 007 SEVEN fragrance that recently launched nationwide.

Wednesday

Toni & Guy Fluid Metal Styler

Toni & Guy have recently launched their new Fluid Metal Styler, which is just beautiful! Featuring colourful iridescent plates inspired by this season's metallic trends, the new styler makes a brilliant gift for Christmas. I'm a big fan of iridescent finishes, but this is the first time I've seen iridescent plates on a set of hair stylers.

Real Techniques Collector's Edition Deluxe Gift Set

I always get ridiculously excited when I spot a new Real Techniques launch- it's my favourite brush brand and Sam and Nic from Pixiwoo are so amazing and inspiring! Real Techniques brushes are cruelty-free and have always been very soft, affordable, and efficient. This month, Real Techniques fans will be able to get their hands on a super-cool Collector's Edition Deluxe Gift Set. 

The gift set includes 5 brushes which includes 2 exclusive cuts, and are all the brushes you need to make-up a full face. Also thrown in is a sleek clutch to keep them in. It's a brilliant gift idea and I know I'll be purchasing these in bulk in the run-up to Christmas this year! I have four sisters haha!

Merci Maman Personalised Intertwined Charm Necklace

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the John Lewis Christmas press preview. It was almost 30'C outside so it felt very weird being surrounded by Christmas trees, decorations and gifts- but as a blogger, I consider myself very lucky to experience Christmas twice a year. It is- of course- my favourite time of the year, and John Lewis always seem to nail the festive season. 

At the event, one of the gift ideas that caught my eye the most was the Personalised Intertwined Charm Necklace by Merci Maman- a boutique brand that specialised in personalised gifts (www.mercimamanboutique.com).
