You don’t need to break the budget to make their Christmas special. Sometimes the best things come in small packages (and on small budgets!). If you’re looking for thoughtful stocking fillers they’ll actually use, all from Australian beauty brands, we’ve got the a-beauty Christmas gift guide for you.
For the brow obsessed
OUR PICK: Eye of Horus Precision Tweezers, $15
Great brows are always a work in progress. For that friend who knows the value of well-groomed brows (hint: it’s an essential for low-maintenance and high-maintenance beauties alike), these high-quality angled tweezers are a must-have in any kit. You can’t go wrong.
For the skincare savvy
You can never have too many sheet masks at the ready for those days when you need some ‘me’ time, or when your skin needs an instant pick-me-up. This one by Australian skincare brand The Unnamed boosts the look and feel of your skin both in the short term and the long run with its firming and smoothing formula that’s enriched with hydrating and plumping hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidant-rich and anti-inflammatory coenzyme Q10, and anti-ageing peptides.
For the social butterfly
OUR PICK: Eye of Horus Goddess Lash Curler, $19
Party season is upon us, which means this lash curler stocking filler is sure to get a good workout. Gift them wide-awake eyes (even when they’ve been slacking on the sleep) with the gentle squeeze of the Eye of Horus lash curler. Then, they can simply opt to go mascara-free or up the impact on their eye makeup with a couple of coats of mascara.
For the laid-back beauty
If their summer beauty vibe is fuss-free and minimal, they’ll be forever reaching for this stocking filler. The peachy tint will add a pop of carefree colour to their pout (sweep it onto cheeks, too) and the nourishing shea butter and coconut oil formula will keep lips soft and protected during the day.
