Add some colour to her stocking

I'm sure every girl would agree that you can never have too much make-up. Here are my top 5 suggestions for timeless, universal make-up picks for the special lady in your life this Christmas...

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, £38.00 from www.debenhams.co.uk next week
Urban Decay’s Naked palettes have amassed a cult following in recent years for one reason; they are universally flattering. Buy this palette for a lady of any age and she can choose from twelve rose gold shades to make her perfect eye, from a soft, rosy wash to a dark, intense smoky look. Whatever her style, this is neutral enough for her to slot it into her everyday routine seamlessly.

Naked 3

Guerlain Crazy Paris Terracotta Healthy Glow Powder, £37.20 from www.escentual.com
When it comes to bronzer, Guerlain’s powders are inimitable. This compact will add a healthy glow to sun-deprived winter skin, and feel like an extravagant treat inside any make-up bag.

Peaches and Cream pigments, price TBC from www.fabulousmakeup.co.uk
Out this Thursday, Peaches are releasing 10 loose pigments that flatter every age. After 10 years in professional make-up artistry, this line has been created following the feedback from real women – what works, what lasts and what makes them feel beautiful.

Pigments

Charlotte Tilbury The Vintage Vamp Palette, £38.00 from Selfridges
In terms of new make-up innovation this year, Charlotte Tilbury has taken things to a whole new level. After working with the world’s biggest stars, she has taken her expert skills and tips and used them to bring Hollywood glamour to the everyday woman. Each palette contains four shades with a guide at the back as to which shades go where. In short, she’s taken the guesswork out of our make-up.

The Body Shop Eye Palette, £15.00 from www.thebodyshop.co.uk
You might not normally think of the Body Shop as your first choice for make-up, but their new eye shadow quads are simply divine. A square palette, this is handbag sized and comes with two miniature soft brushes, and the large lid offers a generous mirror. Choose from neutral shades or a plum quartet for something more trend led. (QUICK! At the time of writing this The Body Shop have 50% off in store and online, so this is just £7.50.)
