A makeup maven's treasure chest

I am no stranger to a brush, pencil or lipstick and I have to say that this year I am blown away by the selection of products available for makeup lovers, whether that is for gifting or self love (to me from me, we have all done it).

Prepare to fall in love at first sight with Huda Beauty and her brand new Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Pallette (€65). This versatile eyeshadow palette of 18 rosy and earthy tones in five ultra-wearable, precious textures designed to recharge your soul as well as your beauty routine.

Packed full of delicate rosy pinks, magical metallics, and soothing quartz swirls, the new Rose Quartz 18-Well Eyeshadow Palette harnesses the harmonious powers of the natural stone to create endless colour combinations of energising and calming tones.

Dip into a healing array of Huda Beauty’s beloved buttery mattes, high-shine creamy metallics, glittery powders, and a one-of-a-kind, holographic translucent gloss, for endless possibilities. This is one of the prettiest pallettes on the market right now. Every year Huda just keeps getting better and this soft focus pallet will keep your interest right through to spring.

Give the gift of pure festive opulence this holiday season with the ultra-luxe Radiant Glow Set featuring not one, but two new essentials from Kash Beauty. It includes all you need to create the perfect Hollywood glamour look. The new Liquid Silk Body Illuminator is a delicious, party-perfect champagne glaze illuminator. Its featherlight formula is universally versatile and can be used on both the face and body alone or blended with your favourite skincare products. Melting seamlessly into the skin, this luxe illuminator creates a gorgeous, sun-kissed glow that lasts all night.

The much-loved Kash Beauty Sculpt sticks have a new hue in the form of Sweet Talk which has a vibrant, coral tone suitable for a multitude of skin tones. The ultra-creamy and easy to blend sculpting offering glides flawlessly across the skin, leaving a vibrant pop of colour. Ideal to use on both the cheeks and the lips, or wherever your cosmetic heart desires, this is the perfect tone for those looking to add warmth to the skin.

Blend and build colour seamlessly with the super-soft Kash Beauty Sculpt Sponge, an essential tool for any makeup kit. This super-soft multi-tasker buffs and blends makeup seamlessly into the skin for a flawless finish. Suitable for use with liquid, cream and powder products, the shape of the sponge flawlessly fits all the contours of the face, ensuring no harsh lines and an immaculate blend every time.

Luna by Lisa has just added five new matte lipsticks to define your lips and brighten your smile. The new, precision lipsticks have a satin matte finish and come in five long-wearing shades that are blendable, buildable and effortlessly chic. Like a best friend, a universally flattering lip shade is a rare find. That's why Lisa created Prinny, a warm, friendly and fun peach designed to bring out your best!

This complexion-saving shade was specially formulated with an undertone of pink to brighten and whiten your eyes and smile. Or go full nude with Cloudy, an all-rounder that has been expertly balanced with complementary hues of pink, brown and nude AKA, the perfect nude. It’s an essential for Irish skin and my personal favourite. The perfect balance of nude and raspberry with a deep, cool tone, Lush is one of those shades that suits just about everyone. Think of it as an amplified version of your natural lip shade, nude... but pink!

Cream Cake is uniquely designed to bring out those warm undertones you never knew you had! It’s an autumnal peachy-brown shade that’s sure to spice up cold-weather days.

Honey Kiss is a true nude, a go-with-anything shade is everything you need for perfect, full and kissable lips. Enhance your pout by pairing the newest additions with a Luna by Lisa Lip Liner. Lipsticks are €10 and liners are €7 each. Bargain!
