Katie Farley picks her favourite beauty sets and products to get you prepared for the festive season

It’s completely crazy to think it’s already that time of year again.

Yes, Christmas is just around the corner, but girls, don’t fret, and guys, take note!

Something in the beauty department always guarantees the big thumbs up when contemplating the perfect festive gift for your partner, family member, friend or colleague.

Beauty proposes a little luxury to our hectic everyday routines, allowing us to be transported into a little world of indulgences each time we spray on our favourite scent, or apply our most lust-worthy lipstick. So by wrapping these up in a gorgeous gift one can use for months on end, you can’t go far wrong.

From fabulous uplifting new fragrances to marvellous make-up sets from our favourite luxury brands, Christmas is totally covered!

Every woman, no matter what age, craves great looking skin that gorgeously glows (without appearing shiny of course), so for a perfect package that provides an abundance of much needed moisture, look no further then Clinique’s More Than Moisture Gift Set. Containing the essential beauty marvels one needs to look her best, the uber girly box set has Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator, Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, All About Eyes and Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Grapefruit. (£40, House of Fraser).

A personal new favourite fragrance of mine comes courtesy of British fashion designer extraordinaire Tom Ford, entitled Velvet Orchid Eau de Parfum.

Equally as attractive as the designer himself, the seductive power of the charmingly feminine fragrance is lavished with notes of honey and rum, cool citrus and dramatic flower petals, encased in a glamorous deep plum and gold bottle. One for the special lady! (£72, Debenhams).

We’d all love to slow down the forever problematic anti-aging process, and with so many products on the market, attempting to discover the right one that does exactly what it says on the bottle can be a miracle, not to mention a minefield!

You can always rely on super beauty brand Estée Lauder to deliver the best results, and with their latest Age Prevention Essentials Gift Set it’ll help protect skin, reduce the first signs of aging and keep skin beautiful and healthy-looking-immediately.

The limited-time collection includes DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Crème, Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher, Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex and Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/ Purifying Mask. (£40, House of Fraser).

An adorable gift idea for any young beauty goer comes from Benefit, delightfully packaged and housed together in a collectible sweet shop tin, encasing a limited edition set for lashes, lips and complexions.

Benefit is known for enticing customers in with their fabulously beautiful exteriors, and the SugarGlam Fairies set is no exception, looking both attractive and containing great products that include a mascara, the POREfessional, Hoola benetint and Hoola bronzing powder. (£44.50, John Lewis).

One of the quickest and easiest ways to update your beauty look is to paint your nails, and arriving just in time for Christmas comes a must-have from Nails Inc.

Their limited edition collection of fabulous festive shades (red glitter, white and silver shimmer and rose gold glitter) will leave you shining, all presented together in a stylish box, making this the ideal gift for Christmas! (£29, John Lewis).

Until next time, stay beautiful!
