When you feel FANTASTIC, you don’t just keep it to yourself – you pass it on! Discover the must-have makeup gifts to show a loved one how much they mean: from skin-loving liquid blushes to complexion-perfecting foundations (and everything in between!)

The best makeup gifts

NARS Cosmetics Orgasm Liquid Blush

Give the gift of a healthy-looking flush with NARS Cosmetics’ bestselling liquid blush. In the shade ‘Orgasm’, the warm pink blush awakens the complexion with an instant pop of colour, applying seamlessly for a smooth, second-skin finish. What’s more? It’s topped with both Monoi and Tamanu oils to help nourish and moisturise!

ICONIC London Prep-Set-Glow

Ensure they’re always equipped with the perfect finishing touch, with ICONIC London’s Prep-Set-Glow. This multi-purpose finishing mist is a skincare and makeup essential all-in-one, granting skin a luminous finish while delivering nourishing hydration and an ethereal shimmer effect. It’s even topped with cucumber extract and chamomile to help soothe and comfort, plus vitamin E to moisturise and caffeine to brighten!

YSL Touche Éclat Concealer

Effortless incandescence might just be the greatest gift of all – and luckily, Yves Saint Laurent have bottled up the best of it! The Touche Éclat Highlighter Pen is the perfect brightening aid, creating the illusion of a sculpted complexion by illuminating the high points of your contours. It’s also free from shimmer or glitter to give the ultimate natural-esque finish!

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Loved by beauty editors and influencers alike, create a flawless base with the Luminous Silk Foundation. The foundation arrives in 40 shades to suit a wide variety of skin tones, featuring exclusive Micro-fil™ technology to help sculpt and brighten while blurring the look of imperfections and uneven texture.

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder

Brighten up their day with this illuminating (yet mattifying!) setting powder from Laura Mercier. Perfect for all your night’s out, the setting powder features a no-flashback formula that helps to offset unwanted shine and oil while laying down a seamless, soft-focus effect, thanks to a silky blend of pearlescent pigments.

L'Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes Panorama Mascara

Upgrade their makeup collection with this lash-loving icon from L'Oréal Paris. Enriched with a patented stretch-flex formula, this pigmented mascara resists smudges and clumps, gliding onto lashes for a fanned-out, fluttery finish with maximum impact and volume. It’s the perfect present for the makeup lover in your life!
