It’s a best friend’s job to know what their BFF wants and needs, and Christmas is the season to prove exactly that. Buying just the right gift for your friend’s beauty needs is a great way to show you’ve been paying attention, so take a look at these 7 gift ideas that are sure to get some ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs.’
If you know your friend never leaves the house without her go to tube of lipstick, a set of lipsticks might just be the perfect gift. You could even buy multiples of her favorite shade! It doesn’t matter if she’s a fuchsia girl or a red lip gal; make a special lipstick collection just for her. NYX’s Extra Creamy Round Lipstick has an amazing choice of shades, and let’s not forget that smooth, silky texture. She’s guaranteed to love it.
To play up her gorgeous eyes, get your friend an eyeshadow palette to die for. Beautiful colors to choose from and sleek packaging will make it a palette she’ll take with her everywhere. Sleek Makeup’s Ultra Matte palettes have a gorgeous range of colors to choose from – shades to fit every occasion. e.l.f. also has palettes with over 100 eyeshadows to choose from for less than $10! There are thousands of eye palettes out there, so choose wisely!
Mineral Makeup Products
e.l.f.’s Mineral makeup is a super choice if your bestie is a lover of all things cosmetic. There are little to no harmful chemicals and preservatives in mineral makeup, which means your friend can use and wear these products over time without worrying about skin damage. Brands like e.l.f. have an array of mineral cosmetics from bronzers to lipsticks to primers that won’t break the holiday bank. Mineral makeup is a skin friendly way of bringing out the beauty in your BFF.
DIY manicure kits can be extremely fun to experiment with. Ciaté’s Very Colourfoil Manicure is a little kit that lets you create funky, colorful designs to decorate your nails using specially provided glue and foils. With an unusual manicure/pedicure set, you can perfect your nail care skills during sleepovers and sport cool, unique looking fingers and toes together. Now how can you resist a gift that gets you some extra bonding time with your best friend?
As any makeup fan will tell you, a good set of brushes is more valuable than the makeup itself. They help to spread product so that you get a more natural looking finish. That’s exactly why your bestie will fall in love with a brush set like the 10 piece Pop Art Brush Set from BH cosmetics. If the brushes are good quality, inexpensive and cover all the eye, lip and face needs – what’s not to love? It’s a gift that she can use every day, as a backup set or while traveling.
Travel Size Hair Supplies
Speaking of traveling, at some time or another, everybody has had to face that awful realization that they’ve forgotten to bring their shampoo along on a trip. To make sure this never happens to your friend, get her a travel-friendly hair kit with all the necessities like shampoo, conditioner and hairspray. Alterna’s Bamboo Smooth Travel Kit is a perfect option for the girl who’s often flying off to some destination or the other. You could even throw in a little, purse-friendly hairbrush!
Skin Care Packages
Who doesn’t love some heavenly smelling body lotion? A little care package for the skin is a handy gift, especially if it includes a great selection of products. Pacifica’s Tuscan Blood Orange products have that tangy, citrusy smell that no one can resist plus they have some great skin care sets. You can even create your own skin care package just by adding things like body butter, roll on perfume, lip tint, soaps and scrubs into a yummy, custom made collection for your friend to enjoy – and there’s no doubt she will!
As the best friend, you definitely know best, so you can mix and match makeup, skin, hair and nail products to make a fantastic collection of beauty gifts that your BFF will fall in love with. You’ll go down in history as Rudolph the red nosed reindeer the BGG (best gift giver) ever!
