In true yearly fashion, 2020 seems to have disappeared before our eyes. With Christmas just around the corner, we’ll soon be stringing up twinkling fairy lights and sipping from warm mugs of hot chocolate to counteract the winter chill.
We love celebrating Christmas as it really is a time for love and festivity – but it is also remembered as a time for giving.
Gift guides are often where inspiration strikes and can be especially useful for those family or friends who are particularly difficult to buy for.
Beauty fanatics and MUA’s in particular can often fall into this difficult category – with their kit bags often already full of every product under the sun! The shop aisles are no help, with such a huge array of Christmas gift sets and festive makeup to choose from it can be impossible to know where to begin.
That’s why, today, we wanted to return the favour and create a gift guide tailored to helping you find that perfect present for all the beauty lovers out there…
LookFantastic are a great online option for beauty-related gifts. With a range of Christmas beauty edits already curated on the site, they really do have something for everyone. We are also so excited to be able to offer you an exclusive site-wide discount code [insert code!] for you to use when you get around to your gift buying.
To help you along the way, we thought we’d take a look online ourselves and pick out some of our stand-out favourites…
You know the saying a girl can never have too many shoes? Well we prefer an MUA can never have too many eyeshow palettes! This beautiful palette from Nip+Fab has a selection of colours perfect for autumn & winter and is at the cheaper price of £12.95 if you are looking for something a bit more budget friendly.
With big and bushy brows seemingly all the range throughout 2020, it is likely that this big brow trend will carry forward into 2021. A good quality brow brush and spoolie is a must have for brushing out those brow hairs to their max.
With the uncertainty that 2020 has presented us with, I’m sure you’re with us in that you’re desperately missing our sunny holidays and the natural glow that a trip abroad leaves us rocking. Alternatively, with the Natasha Denona Bronze Palette, it really can be summer all year long even if we are unable to travel. The premium palette has 15 different shades incorporating ambers, honey browns and coppers to create the perfect palette combination.

If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for a budding MUA who has already perfected their product kit – KLMA’s Base Directory could be a great option for a present with added educational value.
The Base directory is our one stop guide that has been designed to help give the reader the 101 on exactly how leading products from different brands perform. We want to help budding MUA’s overcome their base related questions and get clear on which products they should be using, as well as ensuring that they always get an immaculate application.
Designed to benefit BOTH Makeup Artists and Enthusiasts, the Base Directory is available in eBook form or you can request a printed version that will sit on your MUA station or dressing table!
As a makeup artist or beauty fanatic – storage is key! The job often involves travelling between jobs and the MyKitCo PVC Box Set is a great and affordable option to make sure your makeup products are kept safe in transit.
With four different boxes included, there is room for everything. With smaller compartments for your lipsticks and palettes, to larger boxes for your brushes, nothing needs to be left at home.
There really is nothing better for your reputation than being an organised makeup artist!
Another gift that could benefit any budding beauty fanatic looking to build on their skills in Makeup Artistry would be a KLMA course gift voucher.
Available for any amount, our gift vouchers are redeemable on any Pro Course or 121 lesson. They are a great option for those looking to learn up-to-date industry skills and techniques, with the added benefit of the recipient having the choice as to what content would work best for them and their career needs.
To enquire about a gift voucher, please get in touch with a member of our team and we will customise one to your requirements!
Hopefully this Christmas gift guide has left you with lots of inspiration for your festive shopping this year!
