Christmas is just around the corner, and this means one major thing in terms of beauty. Of course, we’re talking about Christmas gift sets. Choc full of gorgeous, shiny beauty products for a fraction of the price when bought via a set; they make for great stocking fillers and will see you well into the New Year. What’s not to love about that?

Our latest must-have sets come courtesy of Make Up For Ever. The brand is favoured by celebs like Kim Kardashian and Beyonc?, and if their amazing HD foundation is anything to go by, these will fly off the shelves.

Cult Make Up Set, €37

The kit contains an Aqua Liner, a mini HD Powder beloved by Kim K, a matte black Aqua Eyes Liner Pencil, a miniature version of their Dramatic Impact Mascara and a sample size of the 8C red lip pencil. It’s a gorgeous set.

Cult Brush Set, €93

CULT BRUSH SET

Quality brushes are the perfect gift for any make up wearer. This set contains five essential brushes from the collection, presented in a stylish travel size kit making them easy to transport (always handy if you have to dash off to your Christmas work do). The set includes a foundation, blusher, eyeshadow, eyeliner and eyebrow brush and is well worth the investment as each one will last ages.

Other sets available include the Lash Show Kit containing the False Lashes Mascara and a full-size graphic liner and the 9 Artist Shadow Palette featuring nine universal shades, suitable for all skin tone and colouring. The eye palette combines three of the best selling colour-trios (Urban Sunset, Boudoir and Riviera).
