That’s a lot of 20s isn’t it! This is the last of my three Christmas gift guides this year. Last week I published my 40+ beauty Christmas gift guide and my 30+ beauty Christmas gift guide. Now it’s time for ideas of what beauty and wellness gifts to get the younger people in your life – products that will suit their skin and that are a bit more colourful and fun. Anyone of any age, of course, might well like any of these!Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Ornament* – £12 from Boots
This is one of the best-selling mascaras, like EVER! This year Too Faced have created these cute tree ornaments that contain mini versions of their most popular products. This swan ornament is so pretty and the mascara will create the most fullest lashes all through 2021.Urban Decay Stoned Vibes Palette* – £46 from Urban Decay
Urban Decay’s eyeshadow palettes have always been massively collectable amongst makeup addicts. This one looks and performs insanely good. Just look at that sparkle! These highly pigmented glitter and matte shades look beautiful. The shimmers have quite chunky glitter, so do be aware of this. They also contain genuine tourmaline crystal to up that sparkle. You will need a good eyeshadow primer with these to make them stay put, but it’s almost too pretty to use anyway.Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Secrets Set* – £40 from Charlotte Tilbury
Everyone, of any age, who wears makeup would love this gift. It’s totally fail-safe and no recipient could possibly be disappointed. This set from Charlotte Tilbury contains four of their lip formulas in their classic and much-coveted Pillow Talk shade – a dreamy pale pink nude. In this set you get their Lip Cheat Lip Liner, their hydrating Matte Revolution Lipstick, their sumptuous Collagen Lip Bath moisturising gloss and their mirror-like shiny Charlotte’s Jewel Lips gloss. It’s a dreamy set like all of their gift compilations this year.iT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Translucent Powder & Heavenly Luxe Jumbo Powder Brush – £26 & £43 from iT Cosmetics
This is a best-selling powder for a reason. It’s translucent so suits all skin tones and is perfect for setting makeup or reducing shine. The brush is so full, fluffy and high-quality too. The perfect stocking fillers for anyone who loves makeup. It doesn’t dry out the skin and it has amazing pore-blurring technology too.Living Proof Clean in an Instant Perfect Hair Day Set Set* – £22 from Space NK Affiliate
I don’t think there is anyone under the age of 60 who doesn’t use dry shampoo and this is one of the best. It’s the one I have used for at least a year now and it never fails to rescue me from any greasy hair emergencies. Living Proof’s dry shampoo doesn’t just soak up oil – it actually cleans your hair; eliminating oil, sweat and odour. It brushes out easily, leaving you with cleaner hair, and it doesn’t look chalky. It has a beautiful fragrance too!Britney Spears Festive Fantasy Eau de Toilette for Her* – £35 from The Perfume Shop
This colourful, eye-catching bottle is the latest Britney Spears fragrance release. It’s a fruity floral scent that’s all about celebrating life. It has notes of cherry, plum, dewberries, freesia, star gazer lily, jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, vanilla beignet accord, sugar musk and sandalwood. It’s definitely a youthful scent that I think would appeal to someone in their teens or twenties.The Body Shop Slather & Nourish Body Butter Gift Star* – £25 from The Body Shop

Spot patches have become must-have things now and i’m addicted to them. Why not make treating your pimples fun by covering them in little yellow stars?

These Rosy Glow Primer Sheet Masks are one of my most favourite sheet masks, as they really do create the most amazing base for makeup. They totally transform th skin by hydating and plumping it, pore minimising and smoothing skin tone. In this set you get three of these masks, plus one of Seoulista’s reuseable facial sponge pads, the Magic Cleanse. It’s great for removing makeup with your favourite cleanser, or for applying toner if you soak the pad in it. Life changing!UpCircle Hemp & Cotton Re-useable Makeup Pads* – £8.99 from UpCircle
Talking of resuseable pads, these are smaller and thinner so they are great for removing eye makeup or applying toners. You might, like me, have some resistance to swapping your normal single-use cotton pads for reuseable ones; but I promise you, they are complete game changers and you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. Once they are used, pop them into the little bag and put them in the washing maching. Simple!Facemasksclub Monthly Sheet Mask Subscription* – £12.99 for 7 masks from Facemaskclub
