We all have those friends that have an enormous makeup collection and are obsessed with all things beauty. When the holidays roll around, you want to buy them something makeup and beauty related but you struggle. Will they like it? Do they already own it? Do they need it? So, I thought it would be fun to share my holiday gift guide of creative gifts that your makeup-addicted friend does not already have in their collection.
Hand Fan – The first time I met my friend KK she gave me a colorful fan from World Market. It was gorgeous and I was going to use it as a decoration but she told me that she used it daily to make her eyelash glue dry faster. I use this fan EVERY DAY to make my makeup setting spray dry faster. I set my makeup prior to applying my mascara and I hate just sitting there waiting for it to dry. Plus, these fans are relatively inexpensive and will look beautiful on anyone’s vanity.
iPhone Stand – I always catch up on Snapchat and YouTube when I am getting ready in the morning and when I am getting ready for bed at night. So, I had my husband build me a stand for my phone. It props up my phone and makes it easier to watch these videos when I am getting ready. You could also prop your phone up and watch a makeup tutorial as you follow along and do your own makeup. (Disclaimer: The iPhone stand I linked to is my husband’s Etsy shop. He can customize them for you as well – color, size, etc).
Cute Coffee Mug – I am always on the hunt for something cute to store my makeup brushes in. I am currently obsessed with using coffee mugs to store brushes on my vanity. Plus, if they do not need another makeup brush holder they can always use it for coffee or tea. (This Lipstick Mug and this Eyelash Mug are now on my wish list!)
