Iconemesis’s 2013 Beauty Gift Guide


By: Shitika Anand

Christmas is 15 sleeps away (who’s counting?) and the panic radar is soaring high. The holiday season rush is keeping us far away from venturing out to the shops, and the empty boxes under the Christmas tree are starting to scare us.
If you’re yet to tick off presents for those women in your life who believe in boosting their outer beauty just as much as their inner selves, then this beauty-themed gift guide is for you. We’ll allow you to consider it your bible for the next fortnight.
If you ever wanted to store the Christmas spirit and delight in a bottle, invest in his Limited Edition cologne by Jo Malone. It’s smells like freshly picked rose petals rubbed in with the crimson juices of pomegranate and seduced with a slight touch of oak as the base note. A little secret – you don’t even need to gift-wrap this one, it comes in a beautiful traditional black box.

Who says nail art is only for Beiber-obsessed teenage girls? Popularised by pop artists like Lily Allen and Adele, nail art is this past year’s most talked-about beauty trend and we predict that it’s coming along with us in the New Year. This holiday season, pamper your fashion-conscious aunt with this at-home manicure set that might help her decide her NYE outfit.

Your sister enjoys the bath more than she enjoys spending time with you? Get her this luxurious bath and body set and she might just love you forever. It’s got a beautiful body wash, bath crème, body butter, body polish and hand cream, all fragranced with rose and geranium flowers. This will make the bathroom look and smell rather luxe.

4)    Bev Ridge and Friends Ladies Hip Flask and LipGloss
This is the perfect present for your little sister, who’s just turned 21 and is still holding on tight to her teenage years while battling the dramas of her adult life. This flask and lipgloss combo will not just look beautiful gift-wrapped but is extremely functional for her 21st year. We love it!

5)    MAC Stroke of Midnight Face Palette Warm
A 20-something woman can never have enough eye shadow palettes in her make-up drawer, I think we will all agree to this? Add this Limited Edition holiday special by MAC to the collection and enjoy this beautiful nude palette with a bit of glitter for this party season.

6)    Soap & Glory I’m Your Manicure Gift Set
We can’t expect you to be making all those holiday calls and serving those endless glasses of champagne with ungroomed nails, right? Hence why, you need this manicure companion to solve all cuticle-related dilemmas. It has everything, really, everything you need to groom your digits.

7)    Iconemesis Unicorn phone cover by Gemma Correll
This is an ideal present for someone who has everything; gift it as it is or add as a bonus present with another beauty loot. This phone cover is dreamy, full of holiday spirit and we assure it will make you believe in miracles… a Christmas miracle!
