Christmas is the time of year everyone asks for expensive makeup isn’t it? James and I always get each other one ‘big’ present along with smaller stocking fillers. Every year I always ask for something makeup related that I wouldn’t normally spend so much on myself.
Some of these brands have been on my wishlist year after year and I’m slowly making my way through them! This year I’m dying to get the Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette or something from Jo Malone. Maybe I might get lucky!
Check out the luxury (aka expensive) beauty gifts I’ve put on my list this year. I’ve a feeling boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and parents around the country will be getting hinted at for at least one of the items in this gift guide!
