Britt’s Christmas Shopping List

It is never too early to start thinking about the perfect Christmas gifts for your beloved friends and family. Need some expert inspiration? Here are Britt’s top beauty picks for 2017 that are sure to make you the most popular Santa around.

For the hair goddess

1) T3′ Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand

 

We all want our hair to look great, but who has the time to achieve that ‘just left the salon’ look every day? This award-winning styling wand from T3 definitely makes looking effortlessly glamourous, actually effortless. It’s suitable for all hair types, be it straight, curly or wavy; and with three interchangeable barrels, you can create defined spiral curls, beachy waves or full-body glamour waves for any occasion.

For the makeup palette-lover

2)Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette 

 

The name of this palette conjures warm, tropical vacations in a distant land…the perfect escape for our cold Canadian winters. The shades are breathtaking to look at, and with names like Saffron, Amethyst and Amber, this palette looks almost as beautiful in the package as it is on your eyes. Huda Beauty is also a growing beauty brand with a very charismatic make-up artist/beauty blogger and her two sisters as the owners, so it’s worth checking out if you want to support a (fairly) new and promising brand.  

For the contour expert

3)Fenty Beauty by Rihanna’s Match Stix Trio

                 

Rihanna’s beauty line has barely been out for a few months and it’s already become a massive top-seller and fast on its way to achieving cult status. It’s not just Rihanna’s star power (although that likely helped), but the actual products themselves have been critically acclaimed by beauty experts and regular users alike. It’s been especially praised for its inclusivity, and this trio of long-wear, light-as-air highlighters are curated by skin tone, and are meant to “conceal, contour, and highlight on repeat”. This is the ultimate gift for the Rihanna fan on your list, or anyone else for that matter!

For the makeup lover who loves the ‘no makeup look’
4)Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Blush Kit

During the winter months, a lack of sun and warmth can leave your complexion looking pasty and tired (especially from all that Christmas shopping!). Create a natural glow by infusing your cheeks with the rosy colours in this blush kit that comes in two sets of shades, with four full-pigments in each set. Anastasia started out and is still known for crafting expert eyebrows, but we are glad to see them branching out into other beauty products.

For the romantic party-girl

5) Too Faced’s Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette – Peaches and Cream Collection

Just the name ‘velvet matte’ is enough to attract a makeup lover’s attention. With the recent craze for matte lips, it’s nice to see that it’s finally the eyes’ turn to get the matte treatment. Glitter and metallic shadows are fine and well for holiday party looks, but there is just something very romantic and mysterious about matte eyelids (or matte anything for that matter!). As an added plus, this product promises to smell like peaches and cream. Get this for the makeup fanatic who already has enough metallic and glitter in their arsenal.

For the scent hound

6) Elizabeth and James’ A Little Bit of Nirvana

 

It is said that certain memories are embedded in certain scents, and that we are often not even conscious of the association between these memories and their scents until we encounter that scent again. That’s why choosing the right fragrance is such an important and personal thing. You can associate one specific fragrance with only one person forever, which can either be a good or a bad thing (depending on who that person is). This elegantly packaged fragrance set allows you to remember someone with four different scents. The mini bottles are named: Nirvana Black, Nirvana Bourbon, Nirvana White and Nirvana Rose. The wearer can choose which one to wear depending on the memories she wishes to create that day.

For the makeup pro
7) Sephora Collection’s House of Lashes Lash Story Pro Edition

                         

False lashes are the essential finishing touch in every makeup artist’s routine, but they can be notoriously tricky for a makeup novice to apply. However, this collection of lashes will make you want to practice and practice until you get it right.  Each set is distinctive in the look it creates and will make a lasting impression regardless of the occasion. Buy this for the makeup enthusiast, or anyone else who’s been reluctant to try false lashes by themselves. Once they open the package, they’ll be itching to wear a different set everyday.

For the facial-addict

10) TATCHA’s Bestsellers Set

                  

Do you have that friend who loves going to the spa and knows about every new skincare craze there is? Well impress him or her with this collection of the four essential bestsellers from TATCHA, a brand created around centuries-old Japanese beauty secrets. This set embodies the four essential skincare steps: 1) Clean – Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil melts away makeup and dirt; 2) Exfoliate – Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder exfoliates and tones skin without harsh abrasives; 3) Moisturize – The Water Cream contains anti-aging ingredients that hydrates and refines skin without leaving any greasiness; and 4) Prep skin for makeup – Luminous Dewy Skin Mist can be used under makeup or throughout the day to refresh makeup or bare skin.
