january birthday ideas

January/February birthdays are such a pain because we’re all broke after Christmas so here are our top 5 picks for birthday gifts under €20

Birthday present ideas for the Skincare makeup lover:

Jane Iredale lip pencil in Nutmeg €16.00

Jane Iredale is a pricey brand but you pay for what you get with these products. They don’t harm your skin in any way. In fact, they are good for your skin. Jane Iredale lip pencils are non-comedegenic so they don’t cause blackheads around your lips.  They are great for anybody with sensitive skin and lips. I love shade Nutmeg because it suits everyone and works well as a base for most nude lipstick shades.

For someone who does their makeup on the run:

the Balm Smoke Balm Vol. 4 €14

This palette brings me such joy! I love love love it. Its really compact to carry around with you. The packaging is sleek, slim and just the perfect size for your makeup bag. Not to mention the colours in it are just the perfect every-day-smoky-eye colours. You can use any combination of the three to create a natural smoky eye or a darker smoky eye if you prefer. Who wouldn’t love this palette I say?

For absolutely any woman ever:

Mad Lash

the Balm Mad Lash Mascara €18

Because who doesn’t need mascara right? Almost every woman in the world wears mascara. It’s my ‘desert island’ product-as in if I could only have one makeup item for the rest of my life it would be mascara. Mad lash is ah-mazing, give it a little wiggle at the base of your lashes to load on as much product as possible and then use the comb wand to spread it evenly through the length of the lashes. Best. Macara. Ever.

For the tan queen:

NOTE Bronzing Powder in shade 10 €14.95

I’m being specific here and choosing shade 10 for anyone who isn’t quite sure what colour to go for. 10 will suit anybody from very pale to medium-dark skin tone. This bronzer is divine. I reckon any birthday girl would be a happy chick if they received this addition to their makeup bag. It’s matte so it’s perfect for contouring and the colour is just beautiful.

For anyone who needs a little TLC:

Grapefruit Shower Mousse and Body Soufflé

Human + Kind Grapefruit Shower Mousse and Body Soufflé Set €14.95

This is a treat for anyone who loves pampering themselves. I am very partial to a delicious shower gel and body cream and this one smells unreal. Grapefruit has been the most popular scent with MUA customers so far and we completely sold out of it for Christmas with people buying it in bulk for presents.

Do you think one of these pressies would make someones birthday this month?
