Last minute stocking fillers

Thursday, 12th December, 2019 8:00am

Every year I get messages and tweets asking for some last-minute stocking fillers or gifting ideas for makeup mavens and skin care gurus. Makeup can be an extremely personal thing but here are some ideas that might make the recipient very happy indeed!

Take a step beyond the everyday essentials — the Artist Essentials set includes curated tools with innovative, multipurpose cuts that detail, define and accentuate facial features in a unique way.

The Real Techniques Artist Essentials Brush Set (€24.99) is a go-to set for next level looks. It contains the RT 217- Expert Edge Large brush which has a symmetrical cut featuring five unique edges to precisely apply liquid or cream foundation and contour makeup.

The RT 421 Soft Accent brush is a soft, tapered cut brush that enables you to blend cream highlighter or blush while the RT 420 Spotlight Fan Precision brush has a fan shape to softly glide powder contour makeup or highlighter. The RT 31 Smudge Liner brush has thin, angled bristles to apply and smudge liquid or cream eyeliner while the RT 425 Lip Smudge brush is soft yet dense with domed bristles to easily apply and blend cream lipsticks and liners.

Bia Wash-Off Cleansing Oil (€50) is vegan and cruelty free and on my list. Borage and blackcurrant are two potent ingredients blended to cleanse all skin types. This is a light yet deeply cleansing oil that removes impurities and makeup while leaving skin soft, smooth and hydrated. It's a calming oil that is easily applied and rinses off as a milky emulsion.

Borage helps to maintain the moisture balance of skin while blackcurrant oil protects from environmental factors and rejuvenates tired skin. Chia seed oil helps to hydrate and protect skin moisture barrier while oat lipid oil soothes and calms irritated skin.

The Declare Skin Meditation Set with Cream and Serum is €80. It's for all-round protection against stress, tailored to the needs of today. It provides comprehensive protection against inner and outer stress factors, the cream protects skin intensively and is tailored to modern stress factors and skin needs which increasingly place higher demands on immune protection.

Skin Meditation is SOS skin care – for whenever your skin loses control. Help your skin to repair its own protection system and thus appear calmer and more relaxed in the long-term.

Yon-Ka Paris Hydra No1 Masque (€49) - intense hydration and repairing is easily achieved with this gel-cream mask. With delicate floral aromas, this mask provides immediate, time-released, deep hydration.

Novexpert Lip’Up Lip Balm (€20) contains hyaluronic acid, shea butter and menthol and provides a 3D volume effect of the lips! The replump effect has been proven in clinical trials and the formula is guaranteed 100 per cent natural. Lip ‘Up gives a natural pink shine to the lips and provides and hydrates them like a balm.

The added vitamin E helps fight free radicals so that lips maintain their youthfulness. Green algae extract helps stimulate the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Lip ‘Up is the ultimate beauty product with a skincare function.
