Eye Makeup Trio - Christmas Idea

Ultimate Eye Trio - A Christmas gift for your best friend who rocks a dramatic eye look

If you're wondering what things to get your best friend for Christmas, if they are known to rock a smokey eye, cat eye or other dramatic eye makeup looks then we're happy to bet they would be delighted to unwrap the Ultimate Eye Product Trio. It includes the smudge-proof Precision Liquid Eyeliner, the long-lasting Lash Sophisticate High Definition Mascara and the award-winning Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette, which was made using Knead Technology for a velvety and highly blendable finish. It has been curated with six universal shades, so you can create a wide range of sumptuous finishes, no matter your skin tone. This kit is just what she’ll need to create any eye look in three easy steps. Pro-tip: tell her to dampen the brush for a more dramatic impact.

Alexa Chung’s All Day Soiree Lipstick Trio - A Christmas gift for your best friend who rocks a bold lip

Is your BFF known to take a page from Alexa Chung's stylebook? Then why not give her the All Day Soiree Lipstick Trio. It’s a travel-friendly jewellery case kit complete with three unique shades of lip colour, each of which has been curated exclusively by Alexa for Code8. There’s the pink-beige Affogato, the creamy orange Peach Dream and the vibrant red Pillar Box. Even better, 10% of each sale goes to The Womanity Foundation, which funds 6 hours of coding classes for a female student in Afghanistan.

A bespoke lipstick from the Colour ID Lab -

Remember how your best friend used to always wear the same lipstick—that is, until it was discontinued. Now, you can recreate it for her using the Code8 Colour ID Lab. Head to the Burlington Arcade flagship store, where one of our Colour Maestros will assist you in making a bespoke lipstick from scratch. Using special laboratory machinery they’ll make a one-of-a-kind colour that won’t be found anywhere else. They'll even store the colour code so when the lipstick runs out she can go back and purchase it again. Tell her to keep the lipstick tube and she'll get the refill for just £45. The most perfect thing to get your best friend for Christmas that will guarantee some quality girly time!

Blush Palette - A Christmas gift for your best friend that loves a natural look

If your bestie loves that naturally flushed look, pop our Blush Palette under her Christmas tree this year. Made using revolutionary Knead Technology, its silky, lightweight texture is highly pigmented but ultra-blendable, so they can easily achieve a subtle ‘no-makeup’ makeup look. It can also be used on the eyelids and makes for a great multitasking product. The palette comes in a choice of three universally flattering colourways, so pick the shades that she prefers and get ready to bring her some Christmas cheer.

Lash Sophisticate Mascara - A Christmas gift for your best friend who is on the go

Some people can’t leave the house without mascara on, or simply do not love a full makeup look and if your best friend is one of them, she needs our Lash Sophisticate High Definition Mascara. Enriched with Vitamins E and A, it coats lashes with a glossy black film that not only lengthens and adds volume but also strengthens too. It’s long-lasting, smudge-proof and comes in a recyclable glass tube, making it one of the perfect things to get your best friend for Christmas, especially if she is more eco-conscious.

AM/PM Tinted Lip Balm - A Christmas gift for your best friend who loves to treat her skin

This best-selling lip crayon is a cross between an anti-ageing balm and a lip care treatment and is the perfect Christmas gift for your best friend who is concerned with keeping their lips moisturised and healthy. Packed with powerful vitamins, this lightly tinted stick is long-lasting and universally flattering. Perfect for a good friend who’s only just starting to experiment with beauty to embrace makeup in a very subtle way.
