Christmas is getting pretty close at this stage, and the present buying panic is really starting to set in.

We all have someone in our lives who is the absolute definition of #glam, and getting them a gift can be kinda tricky. 

These gals usually know their beauty inside out and will know straight away if you're trying to fob them off with some useless, last-minute buy from the local pharmacy's makeup section. So how do you know she will approve of your pick? 

Stick to the classics - luxury brushes, on-trend smokey colours and anything that will make lips look faaaaabulous. 

Here's our top picks that we SWEAR won't disappoint:
