Receiving makeup gifts will make any woman happy, especially if she’s a beauty junkie. Whether she’s a chapstick and mascara gal or is never seen without a full face of makeup, the important woman in your life will love a makeup gift set.
With so many places to shop at now, skincare or makeup gifts are easy and convenient to buy, and there’s something for everyone. Here are some of the best makeup gifts to give, any holiday season.
Cruelty-free Makeup Gifts
Ulta Beauty carries some of the top makeup kits by a variety of different brands, many of which are cruelty-free. Take pride in giving a critter-friendly present not tested on animals, without compromising on quality.
It Cosmetics is one of many brands that proudly doesn’t test on animals. A wonderful gift for a woman in your life is their Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette.
This kit includes 15 neutral shades of eyeshadow that are versatile and easy to work with, perfect for any woman new to makeup or who enjoys a natural look. Each shadow can be applied matte, or with a touch of the brush, transformed to a pearl finish—making it universally flattering, whatever finish you prefer.
Another cruelty-free beauty brand is Physicians Formula. Their top quality formulas are multi-functional, with eyeshadow palettes that double as blushes—or even triple as bronzers! One of the best products in that vein is the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom All-in-1 Nude Palette for Face and Eyes.
This palette contains twelve chic shimmery shades. She can use them individually to create dynamic eye looks, or swirl them together with a blush brush to use as a blush or bronzer. Pick the Natural combination for cooler-toned beauties, or Warm if she likes to look bronzed and sun-lit. This palette makes a great gift, especially paired with another makeup item like a mascara (which every woman always needs more of!)
The Gift of Organization
A nice makeup organizer is always a great holiday gift for any woman whose makeup is crowding the top of her vanity and littered across the bathroom sink. You can find clear acrylic makeup organizers at many stores, both locally and online. Or why not pick something a little more ornate and decorative?
If she’s got a compact makeup collection, choose an organizer with a combination of slots to fit everything in. If she loves lipstick, find an organizer that will display all her lipsticks at once for easy access. She’ll love such a thoughtful gift.
Holiday season means skincare gift sets—the most affordable way to gift an entire skincare routine or give her the chance to try a bit of everything. If the woman in your life already has her skincare sorted, consider gifting a skincare device. She has probably always wanted to try one!
One of our top picks is Michael Todd’s Floral Print Soniclear Elite Cleansing System. Sonic brushes have become incredibly popular in the beauty scene, for good reason. They give a deeper clean than what you can get with hands alone.
This set includes a total package for easy makeup removal. It thoroughly and deeply cleans the skin, and is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. As a bonus, this kit is decked out in floral print and looks adorable on anyone’s vanity.
Of course, any makeup kit is a good gift for that special lady. Shop around during the holiday season, as many great bargains are available. Why not pick out something for yourself while you’re there?
