Here’s a roundup of some of the best makeup products for the clinically obsessed in your life! I tried to keep this short and simple by only using products I personally own and can honestly vouch for as a makeup addict. I also tried to recommend products at a range of price points so you’ll find something they love at a price that won’t break the bank. Without further ado, I present 17 gift ideas for makeup lovers holiday 2017 edition!
I recently bought this on a whim because I’d never considered spending over $80 on an eyeshadow palette but after hearing so many raving reviews, I knew I had to try it. Theres an array of gorgeous shades featuring purple as the “theme” colour (so for anyone who really loves purple), but it also has tons of glittery shadows for that wow factor! The shades are easy to work with, so creamy and easy to work with, they blend like a dream and I’d recommend this to anyone and everyone!
If the Desert Dusk Palette is out of your price range (which is fair, its a pretty expensive palette), here’s another option that offers HudaBeauty pigmented buttery shades at a fraction of the cost. These tiny palettes are perfect for on-the-go makeup application. They are still expensive for how small these palettes are but again, I’d say the quality of the shadows makes them worth it! I personally love the electric palette, it offers an array of bright colours that are perfect for someone who needs a bit of variation in their makeup collection.
These brushes are absolutely beautiful. They of course work well too and are made with cruelty free vegan bristles that are still insanely soft. But look at them! I’ll be honest, the glitter on the handles is a bit loose and a bit will end up on your hands after using them BUT look how pretty they are.
This palette is absolutely perfect for the holidays! It offers shades for all makeup lovers including some wintery shades like throne and Osiris, some simple look shades like unity, lure and eden and lots of other shades that work well with each other to create inspired holiday looks!
This brush is the brush I use when I need to do my makeup in the bathroom at school or at work when I’m in a rush. I trust it won’t leave my face looking streaky and does a great job blending in my concealer. Its small enough to fit in my makeup bag without giving up any utility. I have the blain black version but this one is the exact same price and the same product but with a beautiful gold handle. Its a perfect tiny gift or stocking stuffer.
Stila hits the mark with their liquid lipsticks. They last all day, dont smudge (unless of course youre eating greasy food), offer tons of shades, and are super super pigmented! My favorite (especially for the holidays) is the shade beso. Its a true red and honestly, I’m pretty sure it makes your teeth look whiter! It is a bit drying but I truly believe that its not possible for a lipstick to both be long lasting and moisturizing. Maybe some day in the distant future, but for now I’ll happily give up wet lips for beso. Sephora also offers three mini stila lipsticks in a set which is also a great idea if you can get your hands on it!
You may also know this as the absolute best highlighter ever! BECCA highlighters are intense, pigmented, and surprisingly non-glittery (which I personally LOVE). It goes on smooth and you really have to be careful not to pick up too much product because its THAT poppin! Champagne pop is the one that I believe works best for every skin tone. If the person you’re gifting has a darker complexion, they may love prosecco pop which is a gorgeous warm gold. They can beam in freaking gold! The other one I recommend for anyone with any skintone though is the prismatic amethyst. Its a beautiful lavender shade highlighter that is surprisingly versatile. It still pops and is absolutely blinding but the purple is subtle so you can wear it with any look.
These gift ideas are in no particular order, I believe that any makeup fiend would be pleased with any of the above options!I hope you found something for your loved ones (or at least got some ideas to start), if you liked this list, please don’t forget to share it with your friends!
