12 beauty and skincare gifts Dazed editors are bagging this Christmas


TextDazed BeautyIllustrationCallum Abbott

From fragrances and eyeshadow palettes to serums and lipsticks, we round up our fave beauty gifts for those who mean most to you (or just yourself)

As we plough through the year into December, the great news is that 2020 is almost over! Unfortunately, COVID-19 does not go poof at midnight on December 31, but 2021 is looking like it will be better for all of us – we hope. 

After the awful year we’ve collectively shared, we owe it to ourselves to spend the Christmas period practising self-care in whatever form you see best; that goes for the people we love too, who have helped us survive it! 

To give you some ideas of ways to do that, Dazed editors have shared their favourite beauty gifts that they’d love to receive (which, as Marc Jacobs says, is the best way to decide on gifts to give). From fragrances to face masks, skincares to serums, all your fave brands are included: Sunday Riley, Pat McGrath Labs, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, NuFACE, Calvin Klein, and more. 

Scroll through the gallery below to see the picks, why you need to get your hands on them, and which Christmas characters would find them at the bottom of their stockings.
