Finding the perfect gift for a makeup-obsessed friend can be quite the challenge, especially if they’re an expert in all things beauty and skincare. There are so many different products and brands, and if you don’t know much about makeup, it can be all the more daunting. If you know anyone who’s nuts about all things Maybelline, Mario Badescu, and the latest Morphe palette, then you’ve come to the right place.
Jump ahead by type:
e.l.f. products rival high-quality brands you find at Sephora, and first on this list is the Expert Liquid Liner that I’ve been buying for years. With a precise fine tip brush and no-smudge color, you can score that sassy cat eye in no time – and it’s only a few bucks!
Essence is a game-changer when it comes to affordable makeup. The Lash Princess mascara has garnered over 2,300 five-star reviews on Ulta, with people raving about its to-die-for lengthening effect, the inexpensive price and the lack of clumpiness when applying.
