Editor's beauty picks for Boxing Day 2018:

Deal: Clinique – 30% off all Holiday Sets

Clinique's Dramatically Different line comes in both a gel and lotion formula. The lotion works great if you live in a drier climate, but I love the gel formula for the summer. It's lightweight, oil-free and hydrates my skin day and night. It is formulated for all skin types and truly is a cult favourite in skincare.

With 30% off all holiday sets, the Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel is sure to be in a handy pack in a smaller size so you can try it for yourself.

2. Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil

Deal: Sephora - Up to 30% off select beauty products

Brows are an important step in a beauty routine that you really cannot forget. Whether you like them to look natural or shaped perfectly for Instagram, this eyebrow pencil will cover all your needs.

Benefit Cosmetics is the leading brand in brows, and this eyebrow pencil works best in small flicks to create the brow you wish you had without makeup.

3. MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle

Deal: David Jones - Up to 50% off the range of beauty

Do you ever feel like sometimes there are just too many highlighters on the market? Never.

This one is an oldie, but a staple in every beauty lover's collection. Lightly brush on the tops of the cheekbones for a sheer finish, or pack on layer after layer to reveal rose-gold light beaming straight off your face. The formula is velvety soft and suits many skin tones.

Deal: Aveda – Free shipping and full-size limited-edition rosemary mint body scrub 200ml with any $65 order, online and in-store

You need this hair brush in your life. If you usually just pick up a new hair brush at K-mart, then this paddle brush is sure to revolutionise your hair game. It easily detangles your hair and works great when blow drying your hair.

The Aveda Wooden Paddle Brush is lightweight but made of good quality materials, ensuring it will last years and years.

5. Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara

Deal: Cosmetic Capital – over 800 cosmetics marked down, prices start at 95 cents in sale category

Step away from the lash lifts and lash extensions because sometimes it's a good idea to go back to basics. Mascara can transform your face, and the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara does just that.

It might be a good idea to get the waterproof version so you can attend all the beach parties with long, fluttery lashes. Cosmetic Capital is offering deals on over 800 cosmetics and with brands such as Revlon, Gerard Cosmetics and NYX, you will be sure to find something.

6. Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer

Deal: Sephora - Up to 30% off select beauty products

Need a new bronzer in time for the summer? If you still haven't tried Benefit's Hoola Bronzer, you better have a good excuse.

The coveted bronzer is matte, with no shimmer and no shine. Use a light hand to slowly build up the intensity, working to either tan the face or to sculpt and create dimension. You get the best of both worlds.

7. Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder

Deal: Priceline - Pink dot sale. Everything with a pink dot is reduced to clear.

A cult favourite in drugstore beauty, you really should not miss out on the Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder. It is matte and gives a flawless complexion that lasts all day. This is one of those powders that you can add layer after layer and it never looks cakey.

It provides a natural finish and we are certainly obsessed with the product and the price!
