Do you need to buy a gift for a friend who loves makeup? Wondering what to get her, or looking for some ideas? Then you’re in the right place! Whether she’s a lipstick addict or a glittery queen, here are four gift ideas she is sure to love.
If you have a friend who loves fashion and beauty, there is a good chance she has a lot of products. Help her get them all in order with a makeup bag. Go for a smaller one if you want one that she can keep in her bag. Get a medium one for use on weekends away or holidays. Or go for a big one that she can keep at home. Have fun with the designs. If your girl loves sparkles, get one covered in glitter or sequins. Or in her favourite colour!
If you’re buying for a guy who loves his creams and moisturizers, a zip-up bag is a good idea. Get a clear one so he can see his products inside and find them easier. You can add the element of interest with the zip, which could be a colour, rather than plain black.
Help your friend make that blue eyeshadow stand out, or finish that winged eyeliner off perfectly, with this gift. Some people underestimate the power of truly good quality eyelash curlers. The fact is, cheaper ones aren’t alays as good. They don’t grab and curl the lash in the best way. They also tend to be quite weak and flimsy, and therefore can break easily. Instead, buy your friend a high-quality set. Shu Uemura curlers are a real favourite for many; many people swear by them, including me.
Give them a gift they may have never received before; coloured contact lenses! If your friend loves to change her look, she will love these. How do you know this? Well, is she always experimenting with new lipstick colours? If she is often changing her hair colour, or trying different techniques like ombre and balayage? Then she likes to change her look. You can get contact lenses in a range of colours. If you want something subtle, and your friend has brown eyes, go for hazel lenses. Or if you think she’ll like something more unusual, go for blue!
A girl can never have too much glitter. Give your friend a set of glitter pots in a range of colours. You could go for metallic colours, like bronze, copper, and gold. Or, bright colours, like greens and blues. The great thing about loose glitter pots is how versatile they are. You can put them on eyes to make glitter eyeshadow. Or, with a lipstick sealer, onto lips. Of course, your friend can just dust them onto her cheekbones and collarbones. Or, if she likes to make her nails look snazzy, add them as a top layer to her nail polish. If you want to make the gift a bit more substantial, get her an applicator brush and a mixing pot too.
