Here in Lincoln, the Style team have written their Christmas list of beauty items that they hope to find under the tree this year.
I’ve had my “main present” this year for a few months now – a Nikon D3100 – and I absolutely love it. I suppose you could say that it’s ruined Christmas but in all honesty, I just needed the camera.
However my main present aside, I’m most definitely lusting over the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I have the entire collection and they’ve changed the way I view eyeshadows. They’re a complete godsend and this rose gold inspired palette looks beautiful. It’s most definitely a must-have for me!
Christmas is a great time to try and get those beauty items you’ve being lusting after all year. Of course, all the major brands also bring out beautiful gifts sets ready for the festive period. If Santa is feeling very generous, I would love the Illamasqua ‘Design by You’ nail polish gift box. With this gift box, you get to work alongside Illamasqua’s Director of Product Development to create your own unique polishes.
Also on my Christmas list is the Nars, and God Created the Women palette. This Space NK exclusive contains six perfect shades for creating a festive smokey eye ready for any New Year’s parties. The palette also contains a cute eye shadow brush and eyelid primer.
Being a student, it’s lovely to get presents for Christmas that you normally couldn’t justify buying for yourself. Because of that reason, this year I’d love to unwrap a pair of We Are Faux fake eyelashes so I can be party-ready for New Year’s Eve. I personally believe full eyelashes are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.
If there’s any room left on the sleigh, I wouldn’t say no to a Bobbi Brown’s creamy matte lip colour – ideal for the mistletoe season!
