A Christmas list that every woman will love... Focus; Makeup

My boyfriend has it so easy when it comes to buying me presents, all he has to do is look at my blog. I know many men find it difficult when shopping for their other half for Christmas and birthdays. I've made a list of my favourite things you could get your other half this Christmas, you will almost be guaranteed that your partner will love her gifts as she follows the style on my blog.


Makeup is one thing that us ladies can never have enough of. It can seem so daunting when you walk into a department store or the MAC or inglot store, as it can be so busy, you have no idea what to buy and they are trying to upsell. I've made a list of this years hottest products.

This contour palette is lusted after by women all over the world. If you are purchasing for an Irish/ English lady who is relatively fair you need to buy the shade 'Fair/ Medium'. You can purchase it here.

This brush set is so gorgeous and the quality is brilliant. You also get a beautiful brush holder included. Its from Spectrum and you can get it here.

I cannot recommend these eyeshadows enough. They are called Makeup Geek and without a doubt are the best on the market. Every girl seems to want them at the moment. They are extremely affordable as you can purchase them on for €6.90 per shadow and you will not pay customs. You can also purchase them from the Make up Geek website for $6 per shadow, you must order no more than $30 if you want to avoid customs charges. Shipping costs very little also. Both websites take up to 3 weeks to deliver to Ireland.

My favourite shadows:
Creme Brulee
Cocoa Bear
Peach Smoothie
Desert Sands
Mai Tai
Secret Garden
Boo Berry

These brushes are produced and sold by an Irish Company called Nima Brush. They are the best I have ever tried and can highly recommend them for beginners and professionals. You can get 13 brushes for €105 and I can guarantee your partner will be delighted! You can get them here.

I am a huge fan of the Makeup Geek blushes also. You can purchase 9 blushes for only $54 dollars on the website which is incredible value. Heres the link. You can also purchase them separately for $9.99. My favourites are romance, infatuation and bliss. These shades will suit all skin tones. You can also buy them on for €11.10. The website is nearly out of stock at the moment but they will be restocked shortly.

Another American brand that everyone is lusting over is 'Gerard Cosmetics' and you can buy it on

The Brow bar to go is a firm favourite amongst makeup artists and bloggers. It costs €23 which is very reasonable.

Liquid lipsticks are the next big trend in makeup and you should definitely treat your lady to one of these. You'll even love it as you won't get any lipstick marks anymore!! All of the colours are beautiful and you just can't go wrong. They cost about €15 each and you can get them here.

This set is exclusive to beauty bay and it includes 2 lipsticks, a liquid lipstick and a lipgloss all in nude shades. This will suit any woman and they will absolutely love this gift! It costs just over €50 which is very affordable and you can get it here.

Last but not least is this fabulous lipstick set that costs just less than €40! You can get it here.

This urban decay palette is on nearly every girls santa list and it is currently on offer on You can get 10% off the palette at the moment. There is such a wide range of neutral and bright colours and the quality is brilliant.

NYX Cosmetics is an american brand which has recently come across the water and if your girlfriend/ wife loves makeup, more than likely she has a few products already. It is extremely affordable and boots now stock all the products!! Here are some of my favourites

This soft matte lip creams are £5.50 and are absolutely brilliant. My favourite colours are;
Stockholm, Tokyo, Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Athens, Cairo, Copenhagen, Ibiza, London, Milan and Prague.

These eyebrow gels are absolutely amazing and your partner will thank you for buying her this! (Product on Left). Again they cost £5.50 and are such great quality. Here's a guide for what shade to buy. You can get them here.
