NYX Slim Lip Pencil – (€4.25)
These lip liners are a holy grail product for me. They glide on effortlessly and are extremely long lasting on the lip. My favourite shade is MAUVE which I wear on it’s own to create that perfect 90’s lip that everyone has gone crazy for. The colour BURGUNDY is great for insuring that your red lip will last all night during the festive party season.

Essence have five different palettes to choose from each including eight different shades. My personal favourite is the BRONZE palette which is perfect for creating a festive holiday look. These buttery shadows a very easy to work with and are also perfect for travelling.
NYX HD Concealer (€7.75)
My dark circles are definitely a problem area for me. Nearly every time I leave the house with no make-up somebody asks if me I’m tired, if I’ve been crying or if I have a black eye. This is my favourite concealer as it’s high coverage and it lasts all day with out creasing. NYX offer a wide varity of shades in this concealer (I use the shade PORCELAIN which is perfect for my pasty Irish skin tone). It’s also great for highlighting the face.
Real Techniques Complexion Perfection Sponge (€7.99)
If you want a beautiful air brushed application with your foundation, then this product is for you. This sponge is to be used while damp in a bouncing motion in order to blend out your foundation flawlessly. The pointed end is also prefect for blending out concealer or cream contour. While they’re cheaper options available, this won’t soak up as much product and this a lot softer to use on the skin. (Boots are offering buy one get one half price on Real Techniques at the moment).
Soap And Glory Righteous Butter Drum (€7.00)
This body butter smells heavenly as it contains shea butter and aleo vera. This is great for moisturising and healing dry, cracked skin all over the body. This is a perfect gift for the winter months when we most need to look after our dry skin. (Boots are also offering 3 for 2 on gifts in the run up to Christmas).
Sleek i-Divine Eye Shadow Palette (€10.49)

My personal favourite (pictured above) contains beautiful warm tones which is perfect for this time of year. A variety of different look can be created with this palette including smoky, bronzed or neutral. (Boots are currently offering a free gift when you spend €15 of Sleek).
No 7 Glamour Christmas Cracker (€11.50)
I couldn’t create a Gift Guide without something from my favourite make-up brand. The No 7 Christmas Cracker contains a mini black Intense Volume mascara and the Stay Perfect black pencil eye liner. All of my favourite mascaras are from No 7 and I have been using this one in particular since I was fifteen years old. It gives good volume with no clumps and is very easy to apply. The best thing about the eye liner is that it really will stay perfect all night long. (Boots are also offering 3 for 2 on gifts in the run up to Christmas).
