Blogmas Day 5: Budget Beauty Gift Guide

I've put together a few gift ideas for those who want to give some beauty products as gifts but may be on a budget. I use a lot of these brands myself and the quality of them are amazing. It's not always about the price tag remember!

1. Make Up Revolution Eyeshadow Palette - €11.12
I have a similar palette to this from Make Up Revolution and I must say I love it. Their quality is really good and their prices are very reasonable. Shipping is about €4 and doesn't take too long to arrive. I love this particular palette because it's all matte and has lots of shades that would compliment most, if not all, eye colours.

2. Make Up Revolution Pro Brush Collection - €16.67
I LOVE the look of these brushes! The set contains a powder brush, contour brush, small stippling brush which would be perfect for concealer, an eyeshadow brush, a crease brush and an eyeliner/brow brush. It's a perfect starter kit or a perfect set for extra brushes to add to your collection without spending a whole lot. I think I'm definitely gonna have to pick up some of these myself.

3. Sleek Gold Standard Eyeshadow Palette - €9.49
This palette looks amazing!!!! I love gold and bronze eyeshadows so for me this is a perfect palette. It's very reasonably priced and can also be bought in Boots. The palette has two cream shadows and four shimmer powders. It's the perfect palette for a Christmas or New Year's night out.

4. Real Techniques Brushes - From €7.99
These brushes are amazing. I have a good few of them and love them. You can buy them individually or in a set and Boots often do 3 for 2 offers on them which is great. They're very affordable and I love them. My favs are the setting brush which I use for highlighting, powder brush, blush brush and the expert face brush for my foundation.

5. Primark / Penneys Contour & Sculpt Set - €4
This contour kit looks absolutely amazing. I'm a huge fan of Penneys' make up range and I cannot wait to get my hands on this. If it's anything like their highlighter then it's a definite must have!

6. Make Up Revolution Blush and Highlight Set - €19.45
This set looks amazing. It comes with two palettes; one with six shades of blushers and another with six different highlighters. I have one of their blusher palettes already and I love the colours in them. They're really pigmented and have a variety of colours to suit different skin tones. The set also comes with a blush brush and a highlighter brush which is very handy.
