Gift Ideas for the Makeup Lover in Your Life

As the days get shorter, so does the gap between now and Christmas morning!

If you’re like me, you leave everything to the very last minute. This includes Christmas shopping.

I beat myself up every year because I wait until the last possible minute to get my shopping done. I even find myself at the mall on Christmas eve, almost every single year.

If you want to avoid searching around and fighting your way through angry crowds – I have just the list for you!

Do you have a lovely person in your life that’s addicted to make up? I definitely do, I’m one myself.

I always imagine my boyfriend consulting in busy Sephora employees when buying my gifts. This is why I’ve started compiling a “wish list.” If your friend, family member or significant other hasn’t done so yet… I’ve gone ahead and done it for them.

Here’s some great makeup gift ideas at various price points that are guaranteed to impress!

Morphe 9A Always Golden Eyeshadow Palette – CAD 15.32 

This is one of my favourite palettes. It’s affordable, small, and so creamy and blendable. Just like any other Morphe palette, the pigment in these eyeshadows pack a punch! The colour selection is wonderful, especially for an everyday/neutral look.

FENTY BEAUTY Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color – CAD 30

FENTY Beauty just came out with this amazing, universal lip paint at the end of November. Yes, you read that right: UNIVERSAL. Rihanna has some how come out with a liquid lipstick that looks amazing on everyone. A gorgeous, classic red, perfect for the holiday season. It lasts all day, looking vibrant and velvety soft – it was well worth the wait!

ColourPop Take Me Home Eyeshadow Palette – CAD 15

This is a mini eyeshadow palette for your loved one that’s always on the go. I find myself having to stuff chunky palettes in my bag, risking shattering my eyeshadows. All this trouble just to use one or two shades max each time. This is a great ColourPop palette, each eyeshadow is beautiful and so creamy. Although it’s small, the quality is 100% there and for the affordable price, I might have to buy one for all my friends this year.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Eye Shadow Palette – CAD 68

I believe that every makeup lover needs to own a good matte palette (in my case it’s several). This palette is my favourite in my collection. It’s compact enough to bring on the go with you, every colour is wearable/usable, the shadows are so creamy and far from chalky, which seems to be a problem when looking for a good matte eyeshadow palette.

STILA Play It Cool Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set – CAD 26

If you saw my STILA Liquid lipstick review, then you already know that this is one of my favourite products! I actually received this as a gift and I was over the moon. You get a trio of wonderful, everyday wearable colours. They are the perfect matte liquid lipsticks and such a steal at 26 dollars!

FENTY BEAUTY Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife – CAD 42

If you’ve noticed your loved one glowing at all times, they likely have a highlighter addiction. You need to get them this highlighter to add to their collection. A little goes a long way.  This highlighter is pigmented, rich and so blinding. FENTY products have been flying off shelves since their launch in September of this year. Everyone has been talking about this brand and this highlighter in particular! Give your loved one something to talk about.

I hope you were able to gather some ideas or find something suitable for the one you love. I’m here to help you so let me know if there’s anything else you’re shopping for!

What are you wishing for this year?
