There is nothing more special than treating the person responsible for bringing us into the world – and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, and with SPICE celebrating a month of Mothers in Fashion (and beauty), we’re on the look out for the best bits about to gift mums with.
While it can be tough finding the perfect gift, we’ve searched high and low for things we’re certain she’ll love, so see below our top 10 beauty gifts for Mother’s Day;
1. Clinique’s Almost Look Foundation Kit, $89.50
Containing a liquid foundation with an SPF 15, compact powder with cosmetics sponge and a product between a lipstick and a gloss, called “black honey,” this kit is perfect for every possible complexion. Our own mothers would be absolutely delighted to receive this, as it will cut down their beauty processes with ease. Coming in various shades (‘Neutral Fair’, ‘Light’, ‘Neutral’, and ‘Deep’), you can be sure this will be amazing on her skin.
Neutral colours are great for mums of every age, as they can be worn individually or together. This quad includes shades that are soft, but each boasts pigmentation that can be built. Also, with a key four shades, Japonesque’s product provides the optimum choice for your mum, so she doesn’t get confused about which colour to use on her special day.
Heaven knows our mums love to glow, and while it’s common knowledge that products with shine aren’t always suitable for matured skin, this one gives complexions a natural and youthful glow. This set includes a makeup primer in bronze and an all-over body frosting, as well as a lipstick that gives a flattering soft colour to the lips, too. But the best part? Mum can use the beautiful metallic bronze purse to carry her date night essentials. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Why not treat Mum to a chance to soak in luxurious and exotic scents on her special day, so she can get away from the world (and chores)? As well as providing beautiful scents of sandalwood and patchouli, the skin is also nourished with shea and cocoa butter. There’s also a softening body cream, conditioning shower cream, moisturising bath essence and nourishing hand cream, presented in a handy travel bag that she’ll use and use again.
5. Loiuse Young’s Brush Set, £55
Every mother needs to apply her makeup in style, so why not get her this nifty brush set? Including five short handled professional brushes in a brush roll, your mum can take this with her wherever she goes. We’re sure she’d love to show these off!
With over 40 years experience, this brand’s limited edition set is the perfect gift for mum. If it was good enough for Audrey Hepburn (whom it was originally created for) 40 years ago, it’s got to be good enough for even the pickiest of mothers, too. This indulgent hair treatment helps to improve the condition and elasticity of all hair types – and Lord knows our mum’s hair could use this product, hence it’s on our gift list for sure.
7. Jo Malone’s London Rain Fragrance Collection, $120 each
Made up of 4 sinfully adorable scents, this collection captures the essence of waking up, morning dew, afternoon rain clouds and fresh air after the rain – natures very own fragrance, bottled. We’re certain your mum would love this collection and to smell like the best morning scents every single day.
8. Smashbox’s Mother Earth Palette, $11.99
This product is perfect! From the wooden packaging to the soft, floral colours, this is a beautiful gift for any mother. She might end up keeping it (you know, in storage, for special occasions, just as mothers do) simply because it looks so pretty, but regardless, you know she would love it. Great for creating a soft dark smokey eye or a colourful look, your mum will look gorgeous wearing these shades.
9. Stila’s My Mother, My Hero, $110
While this product is painfully out of stock at the moment, we really hope it will be back before Mother’s Day comes around (we have spied the lovely linen purse is ebay though). This collection is complete with an eyeshadow trio, illuminating finishing powder and lip colour in ‘Natalie,’ (a beautiful plum) and there’s also a waterproof mascara, which will help protect mum’s beauty look while she cries for joy at her gifts. If you find one, snap it up!
10. Prada’s Infusion de Fleur D’Oranger Perfume, $55.23
This unique scent will be much loved by your mother, as it will envelope her in the soft smell of orange citrus, leaving others in awe of her scent as she charges about the house. Buy her this and if you’re not already, you’ll become her favourite child.
