With Christmas just around the corner, time is running up to pick the perfect gift for your other half or bff. Here’s my list of some of the hottest trending makeup products available that have a cult following on social media and can often be spotted in some of the best makeup artists’ bags.
Intensely pigmented and nothing short of a steal at this price, these 35 stunning eyeshadows have become a community favourite and can be used to create day or night, matte or glam looks.
Owned probably by all of the on-trend make-up artists, this palette gets sold out all the time. Extremely versatile with all neutral and bold shades, matte and metallic finishes.
For the beauty guru who hates to make compromises or will appreciate owning a true cult beauty product. One of the most talked-about makeup products at the moment that is in constant battle with the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit (Kylie actually wore this before creating her own line of lipsticks).
Glowing skin is causing a revolution in the makeup world. Celebrities swear by it and the Instagram crowd follows with sparkles flying everywhere. This highlighter is reasonably priced and incredibly silky and finely milled (no glittery skin). It comes in luxurious packaging, making it a beautiful gift.
This contouring palette is a must for any beauty addict out there. The shades blend like magic, are versatile and make you a contouring pro in seconds. No need for Photoshop or filters.
An ideal stocking filler, this concealer is so hot it rivals products 6 times its price. It provides great coverage and does not crease under the eyes or dry out skin.
Another budget-friendly dupe of products that cost a fortune in comparison, such as the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (and unlike the latter, Milani is cruelty-free). This foundation is extremely durable, has a matte but not dull finish and provides full coverage. No wonder it’s creating such a buzz on social media!

This little drop-shaped sponge is one of the most popular tools in makeup application today. It promises a flawless foundation finish and works incredibly well for blending in concealer and contours.
Affordable yet so amazing even the Kardashans’ makeup artists use them. A set of these brushes will make any girl love you!
Revolutionary brushes that are so soft she’ll never be able to stop touching them. These change the makeup game completely and transform you into a true makeup pro. Oh, and they’re sooo pretty in the limited edition rose gold!
