Best Gifts for Makeup Lovers You Can Buy for Them

Know someone who's obsessed with glam? If you present her with any of these gifts for makeup lovers, she'll love you more than makeup... probably not.

Once someone starts getting into makeup... there's no going back. Discovering the art of contouring, cut creasing, highlighting, and all that good stuff can change someone. They start learning more and practicing until they've created the most airbrushed makeup looks ever. But aside from perfectly applying on makeup... all the colors! No one is fixated on a few colors to use on her eyelids or on his lips. There's a huge range of colors, tones, shades, and even textures to choose. From pastels to neons, glitter, and metallic, there are colors that people enjoy experimenting with and testing out for the first time—whether it's a hit or miss. Makeup is viewed as a form of art, not so much concealing one's true beauty, but rather enhancing that beauty.

So, for that confident makeup artist that you love so dearly, buy her something that she'll absolutely use for her birthday or a special holiday. And trust me, as a beauty addict myself, I couldn't be anymore thankful than receiving gifts related to makeup. No makeup lover can have enough makeup or anything related to makeup—we really want more. I highly suggest you buy your friend any of these ideal gifts for makeup lovers; she wouldn't be able to thank you enough.

Peacock Vintage Oval Hand/Table Mirror by Ivenf

Let's start off with this seriously stunning hand/table mirror. Even if your friend may already have a mirror, no one can ever have enough mirrors. But this specific mirror is truly a statement piece. Just look at how beautifully decorated and detailed this is! Aside from a makeup addict, how can anyone not be in awe when gifted this mirror?

For a shockingly affordable price, this vintage mirror is made out of machine-made metal with manually fill-in colors. But the best part of this mirror is the elegant colors and the precise detailing of the peacock’s majestic tail spreading. This mirror can be straightened out for handholding or folded for placing on the table. Let your friend get a taste of luxury when applying makeup on while using this mirror. 

Electric Makeup Brush Cleaner by Blinbling

Cleaning makeup brushes can be so time consuming and an actual struggle to do. While cleaning brushes, there can be leftover soap residue, or the brushes take forever to dry. Don't let your friend continue to dwell over this any longer. Give him one of the most useful gifts for makeup lovers: an electric makeup brush cleaner!

Even though it may look and sound complicated, it’s actually super easy to use. Simply insert your brush into the spinner, switch it on, and spin your brush into the bowl of half-filled water and soap. Using this will get all dirt, oils, makeup residue, and dead skin cells out of your brush. And once you’re done, slowly lift the brush out of the water, but keep it in the bowl and allow it to continue spinning in the bowl until every drop of water is off of your brush! This is ideal for any type of makeup brush, too.

Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm by Clinique

How does your friend remove her makeup? With soap and water? Low quality makeup wipes? Don't let her continue using any of those methods. Instead, show her what a real makeup remover is by giving her Clinique's massively popular makeup remover product—Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm! It's also seen to be one of the best gifts for makeup lovers.

Allow your friend to scoop out a little onto her fingers and go to town with it. It melts any type of makeup right off of the face. From waterproof products to glitters, and even matte lipsticks, it gets everything right off. And once your friend is finished rubbing the balm over every inch of her face, she can rinse it all off and follow up with a facial cleanser.

Silicone Sponge Set by STSTECH

Every single makeup lover out there knows what beauty blenders are and the purpose of them. But, they also know how much product these beauty sponges absorb. Your friend can save a lot of money by using little  product with these silicone sponges, which are the perfect dupes for beauty blenders. Since they're not actual sponges, the silicone material doesn't absorb any products at all while using them—and I'm sure those who constantly wear makeup want that.

Your friend would use these silicone sponges just as how she would use any type of beauty blender. And these sponges are super easy to clean up, too, simply using water and soap or even wiping them down to get every product off.
