100 Gifts for Makeup Lovers

From Barbie-Themed Makeup Lines to Fruit-Scented Eye Shadows

— December 15, 2018 — Fashion
When it comes to purchasing a great gift, cosmetic products are always a solid go-to, and this list of gifts for makeup lovers highlights a wide range of offerings that can appeal to anyone's tastes.

This year saw a major focus on inclusivity in the makeup industry, with brands widening its scope to appeal to a broader demographic. Makeup brands like 'The Y Code' are creating cosmetic lines that target young men, offering simple products that can seamlessly enhance one's image, while still eliciting a more natural look. Meanwhile, those looking to use makeup to express themselves might be drawn to MAC's collection with Jeremy Scott, which offers a glistening line complete with incredibly bold colorways.

This list of gifts for makeup lovers offers plenty of inspiration, regardless of whether the gift-receiver is hoping to achieve a bolder, or a more natural look.
