1. A good brush set
Every makeup addict would be lost without brushes. They’re the key to making any look go from basic to advanced. I would even go so far as to say that having good brushes is more important than having good makeup. However, finding good quality brushes can be a nightmare. There are so many different options out there, how are you to choose? Below, I have a few options that I have used, and totally trust!
2. A lesson with a makeup artist
This may seem like a crazy thing to gift someone who is so into makeup, but everyone has something to learn! I’ve even taken lessons from makeup artists before and I do makeup professionally. I personally love learning tips and tricks from others that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. To find local makeup artists in your area, I suggest searching on Instagram or Facebook. Look through hashtags like #YourCityMakeupArtist or #YourStateMakeupArtist and reach out to them. Most makeup artists I know provide lesson services to fit any specific need.
Kylie’s liquid lips are always a safe option. The shade selection is endless, and the formula is actually amazing. I especially love her matte formula, because it’s not overly drying. In the holiday set, there is a good mixture of nudes and bright shades. The makeup lover in your life will definitely find something to love in this kit!
Whenever Urban Decay launches a new Naked palette, the entire makeup world gets flipped upside down. It’s the girl equivalent to the Super Bowl or a new video game coming out. I remember once waiting outside of an Ulta store for an hour and a half before open just to get my hands on one. When they release a vault, it’s even more magnified. This vault comes with the new Naked Honey palette, an eye shadow primer, a lip plumper, a scented body powder, and their famous setting spray in a new Honey scent. I would almost be willing to bet this set is already on your beauty lover’s list!
BECCA has some of the best highlighting products in the game. In fact, they’re widely known for it, and have built their entire brand around them. This face and eye set comes with the popular Champagne Pop highlighter, and some gorgeous eyeshadow shades to match. Their products are always super buttery, and last a long time. Plus, the packaging is to die for.
This is THE BEST liquid eye shadow set, and I’m sure your makeup lover would agree. These shadows have taken the beauty community by storm, and for a very good reason. The Stars Aligned set comes with two shades, a silver and gold, to help make any look pop. This is one of the only liquid eyeshadow formulas I recommend, as they’re super pigmented, and last all day. Pro tip: Apply a small amount on your lid & use a matching powder shadow shade to really make the color more bright.
Every single year, I wait patiently to see what Sephora comes up with for their Favorites collection. This one might be my favorite one yet! With this Favorites kit, you get two full-size mascaras, eight deluxe-size mascaras, and one pair of falsies. These gifts are so fun, because the makeup lover in your life can try out some of the best selling mascaras on the market right now without committing completely to a full size just yet! It’s the perfect way to find your new favorite mascara.
This is actually something I am dying to get! I have never personally tried this lip before, but if you’ve ever seen a celebrity with a really amazing “your lips but better” lip color, it’s more than likely this! Charlotte Tillbury products are high quality, and also provide a little bit of glam with the packaging too. Getting both of their iconic lip products in one is such a steal!
Milk is another brand I am dying to try. Their MVP set has their best selling products, in a fun giftable size so the beauty lover in your life can try out each thing individually. It comes with a mascara, primer, cooling water, brightening serum, mini highlighter, mini bronzer, and a lip and cheek product all in an adorable bag.
Benefit is one of those brands that always kills it with their holiday sets. When I worked for Sephora, I would buy one every single year without fail. This one in particular has some of my favorite products from them–products that are in my daily routine. In this set, you get their famous bronzer, primer, mascara, and brow brush. You even get a mini brush for the bronzer as well!
Buxom has one of my favorite eyeshadow formulas of all time, but I rarely ever talk about it. I’m not sure why, but what I am sure of is how excited I am about this palette! I’m a total neutral girl, and every makeup obsessed girl needs a ton of neutral shades to add to her arsenal. This one is perfect for everyday or for full glam if need be. The shimmer shades are also perfect for the holiday season!
There you have it! My gift guide for the makeup addict in your life! What have you had your eye on this holiday season? I really am loving all of the holiday sets this year! Sound off in the comments below what you are going to ask Santa for!
