WHAT TO GIVE TO A GIRL WHO DOESN’T LIKE MAKEUP BUT WANTS TO LOOK PRETTY
What to give to her if you don’t want to break a bank yet want to give her something luxurious? And you are shopping at the last minute?
Undoubtedly, finding a perfect Christmas gift for a girl who doesn’t like makeup is a task. All in all, most of the best under $50 Christmas gifts are designer makeup. You know, that beautiful luminous red lipstick from Chanel that comes in a sleek black click case? Or light revealing pearls of powder placed in a beautiful silver box adorned with a signature flower from Guerlain?
Indeed, those little luxury gifts are truly the best Christmas gifts for makeup addicts. But what for the makeup hater? What does she like if she doesn’t like designer makeup?
Let’s find out!
LITTLE LUXURY CHRISTMAS GIFTS THAT AREN’T MAKEUP
Believe it or not, makeup is not the only little luxury Christmas gift you can give to a woman. There are plenty of other little luxury gifts that will melt her heart and won’t break your bank.
Here are some!
She does like fragrance, right? I can’t imagine there’s a woman who doesn’t like to smell like a rose. A bottle of perfume is the best substitute for makeup. Especially when it comes in a beautiful bottle like the one from Guerlain or is the most wanted perfume of the year like Chanel’s Gabrielle. Or is Chanel No°5 Limited Edition. Furthermore, any of the perfumes you can find in the list of best perfumes.
Everyone knows Chanel N°5 is the classic perfume. And everyone also knows Chanel N°5 has been the most wanted perfume of women all around the globe for decades. But what not everyone knows is that this year, for the first time ever, the world’s most eternal fragrance comes in white. Yes, for a limited time only, you can get Chanel N°5 in Gabrielle Chanel’s favourite colour, white. Go here to buy Chanel N°5 in the ephemeral white bottle. I bet your girl doesn’t have Chanel N°5 in white yet.
Not only this, intensely green and fresh, perfume has been one of my favourite perfumes for the past 3 years, it’s Gucci. If your girl knows anything about fashion, she will undoubtedly love the perfume coming from the number one most popular fashion brand in the world. Again, it’s Gucci.
Nevertheless, Gucci fan or not, Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori (shop here) celebrates the joy and energy of youth and is one of those perfumes you can buy online, before smelling it first and without giving it a try. Trust me on this, my senses are never wrong when it comes to the perfumes.
Well, if your lady doesn’t like perfumes either, then you should give her a scented candle. Believe me; every woman loves Diptyque’s candles. Even those who say they don’t like candles. Talking from my own experiences.
I used to hate the smell coming from the lit candles, but then I got my first Diptyque candle. And I got charged by the unique scent. It’s light, so that doesn’t itch your nose, but strong enough to smell it even when the candle is not lit. You can get a mini version of Diptyque’s best-selling fragrance for $35 (26 EUR).
3 GIFTS FOR A BEAUTIFUL SKIN AND WELLNESS
If you can’t give your girl makeup to help her enhance her beauty, you can make her beautiful or maintain her natural beauty with some other beauty products and gifts that will make her sleep better. You know a good night’s sleep is half of beauty. The other half is the genes, good cream and dermatologist. Besides, you owe her sleep for calling her in the middle of the night.
I already told you sleeping on a silk pillowcase is a secret of my beautiful skin and hair. Silk minimizes the hair splits and prevents the #iwokeupwrinkled.
Ps. Check under $80 luxury gift guide to find another small, affordable luxury gift from Slip.
I bought my first La Micro-Huile de Rose serum from Dior last year, and I’m currently using my second bottle. I love the feeling on my skin after using this serum. It’s like I would inject the energy into my skin. I’m getting one for my sister this year. Because I just can’t get her fingers off my bottle. You can buy it for your lady here.
If she doesn’t use concealer, then she will appreciate an eye cream, for sure. This one from Dior is my favourite. I love that rich and smooth feeling around my eyes. Besides, this cream is one of the most effective ones. Get it here.
Now, this cream with Camellia Alba and Blue Ginger is my lifesaver. Well, more like a skinsaver, but once you have your face all red and full of spots, this means the same thing.
This is actually the best gift you could give to a woman who doesn’t like makeup. It’s just perfect. It’s not makeup, but a skincare product, and yet when you take it off, you look like you have spent an hour putting on the entire makeup. In short, it’s just magical.
You put it on like any other sheet mask, wait for 15 minutes or so, take it off and go out. Looking photoshopped, with spotless and velvety skin. Plus, it’s less than $10. I told you, a perfect little luxury gift. Get Erborian BB Photoshop mask here. Ps. Buy 2, one for your girl and one for you.
Another thing for perfect skin your lady will love, for sure, is Luna. You can shop Luna in different sizes.
But you might want to give her FOREO Luna Play Smart 2 Smart Skin Analysis and Facial Cleansing Device. It’s under $100.
Not only it looks luxurious, but Foreo UFO also makes you feel so. This mask treatment is simply out of this world. It combines advanced dermal technologies with popular Korean mask formulas. Sounds amazing, right?
Wait, this is not all! It only takes seconds to get gorgeous skin. In short, this is just perfect for women who say they don’t take care of their skin properly nor use makeup because they don’t have time.
The prettiest soap. I admit I bought my Glossier Body Wash at le Colette (that famous, legendary French institution we all miss) just because it was at le Colette and because this bottle looks so beautiful.
In fact, I was convinced it would be more or less just as decor in my bathroom as I have very delicate skin and I have hard time finding an under $40 soap that won’t damage my skin. But I was surprised. This soap makes my skin soft and so clean. And it foams so well. However, it doesn’t smell nice.
Nevertheless, if your girl doesn’t like to smell of roses, this is just a gift for her. Plus, it’s vegan, soap-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free. Fit for a girl who looks for natural cosmetics. Get it here.
