The ultimate last-minute beauty Christmas gift guide for 2020

It’s impossible to compile a Christmas gift guide without mentioning the yoyo lockdown we’re all currently facing. While I did try my very best to omit the L word for this piece, I failed to do so, and here I am, using it twice in one paragraph.

Instead of trying to avoid it, I’ve decided to embrace it, because what this article will prove is, that regardless of the new lockdown rules, it’s still possible to get your last-minute Christmas shopping sorted.

If like me, you’re awful at presents – whether that’s remembering to buy them in the first place, or handing them in several months late, I’ve got us covered. But only if you at least promise to get through this list on time.
