Team Image on their dream beauty Christmas present

What are Team Image hoping to find under their tree this year? For people in the know when it comes to beauty, these are still three of the most coveted beauty gifts of the year…


Erin Lindsay, Deputy Digital Editor

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

Erin says: “I have heard nothing but rave reviews of this so-called ‘wonder product’ all year, and getting it for Christmas would be the perfect excuse to finally try it out. I’m not a girl who favours heavy foundation, so a formula that’s light enough to wear on its own, that isn’t cakey or thick and provides a glow rather than a matte finish is what I’m all about for 2020. Have to see if it’s as good as they all say!”

Grace McGettigan, Homepage Editor

Bare Minerals Best in Clean Beauty Gift Set

€89 from arnotts.ie

Grace says: “Having recently spent (a sinful) fortune on AlumierMD skincare, I decided it’s time for me to properly invest in mineral make-up too. After all, why pay so much to clear my pores only to clog them up again? I’m asking Santa for this ‘Best in Clean Beauty’ gift set from BareMinerals. It has some of my go-to products (such as the Mineral Veil Finishing Powder and Prime Time Original Foundation Primer), plus a variety of lip products and highlighter. It’s pricey at €89 – but I’m on the good list and deserve it.”

La Prairie Skin Caviar Lifting and Firming Rituals Set

€1,296 from brownthomas.com

Aisling says: “I decided to go ALL OUT and just put it up to Santa to come up with the goods this year. He won’t, of course, because hello – €1,300 nearly – but if I’m asking Santa and the universe for things, it might as well be La Prairie. If I was independently wealthy and ‘took’ Christmas in Courchevel or something like that, I would absolutely want this skincare gift set in tow. I would need to revitalise my post-skiing skin, ready myself for a lazy January lunch in Claridge’s and be the TALK of whatever Whatsapp group I’m being excluded from at the time. I’ve invented an alternate world here as you can see, where myself and this glorious skincare set would live happily ever after. With PERFECT skin.”
