The Best Gifts For The Makeup Fanatic In Your Life

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

The holiday season is upon us, meaning many are exchanging gifts with friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers.

It can be tough, at times, to come up with the perfect present, but you should try to think about what people may want or need ... something that will delight them and that they will use often. For many, that may be makeup! Women spend around $300 a month on beauty products, and globally, the market is expected to be worth about $85 billion in 2024 (via Deals on Health). These items are used to cover blemishes, for self-expression, and to add to looks, meaning a lot of people turn to them every single day.

That being said, if any of your recipients are into makeup and beauty, consider the gift ideas below. From organizational tools and gift sets to products made specifically for eyes and lips, they are sure to please any and all makeup-lovers.

This organizer rotates 360 degrees and has height-adjustable compartments

One necessity for a makeup fanatic is a place to store all of the goodies. That is where DreamGenius' 360-Degree Rotating Cosmetic Storage Organizer comes into play. It has four areas that can hold everything from makeup to brushes, and the heights can be adjusted, allowing a variety of product sizes to fit. Its acrylic design is sleek and chic, as well as easy to assemble and clean. This organizer — which was also suggested by Prevention — is just $26.99 on Amazon.

This set is made up of daily makeup staples

Glossier is a popular brand within this realm, so another gift idea is The Makeup Set, which has gone down in price from $50 to $40. It comes with Boy Brow to help shape eyebrows, a gel-cream blush called Cloud Paint, and Lash Slick, a black mascara that lengthens and curls eyelashes. 

As pointed out by celebrity makeup artist Emily Amick, these items are all super versatile, too, as "the cloud paint [can be used] as a blush and lip color" (via WWD).

This advent calendar is the perfect way to count down the days until Christmas

A fun and common tradition during this time of the year is to open an advent calendar. Why not give a makeup advent calendar? Charlotte's Beauty Dreams & Secrets Beauty Advent Calendar allows people to open up and discover 12 different items from Charlotte Tilbury. Nine of these are travel-sized products, while three — the Hollywood Beauty Light Wand, Colour Chameleon, and Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk — are full size. So while it is $200, it is full of go-to and viral makeups, as pointed out by Self.

This set comes with 14 brushes and 30 shadows

Next up is something that was also recommended by Harper's Bazaar: The Mega Mood Shadow Palette & Brush Set from Colourpop. Makeup-lovers will have all the tools they need with the 14 included brushes (in their roll-up kit) and a palette full of 30 new eyeshadows. The colors come in mattes, glitters, and metallics and can work all year long, as there are ambers, plums, greens, teals, and beyond, all for $64.

This curated collection consists of lipsticks and lip balms

An outfit is not complete without a lip, and several looks can be created with the Sephora Favorites Swipe of Lip Color Lipstick & Lip Balm Set, with full-size products from Nars, Huda Beauty, and Summer Fridays and mini items from Yves Saint Lauren and Clinique, all for $36.

All five pieces are best-selling ones in holiday colors. "Trust me," said Allure's editorial assistant Talia Gutierrez, "it'll be a hard choice between the three berry-toned hues from Nars, Clinique, and Yves Saint Laurent."
