For the beauty obsessed, the holidays are a time of year for giving and receiving. Who knows better what a beauty lover would love than another beauty lover?

 It’s time to give up that heirloom necklace your great-aunt Hazel gave you last year and spend that cash on something from Sephora. Here are the best gifts beauty lovers will love.

The Bougiest Beauty Christmas Presents Ever :

1. Gianni Bini 3-in-1 Mascara (M) : 

Since I’m always on the hunt for a perfect mascara, I need to have more than one. The three different lengths and volumizing effects of this mascara will keep me from tossing my other ones in favor of this little guy.

2. Sephora Collection EyeShadow Palette (M), $15 : 

This palette is beautiful, with a sleek black case and 30 eye shadows ranging from soft pink to bold reds and browns that work well together or individually. I’ve been looking for an eye shadow palette like this for years and finally got it as a gift.

3. Laura Mercier Foundation (N) : 

This foundation is the best I’ve ever used, and it’s a great gift for anyone new to makeup, as well as for those of us who’ve been in the game for years. It goes on easily without clumping, doesn’t crease and lasts throughout the day. It’s non-drying and completely natural-looking with no need for concealer, powder or powder blush. If you’re looking to spend a little more money in order to get great results, this is it.

4. Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips (M) : 

This is the perfect gift for any of your friends who love a long-lasting moisturizing lip gloss. It goes on smooth and comes in crazy colors that you won’t find at other drugstores. I like the cherry flavor, but it also comes in plum, peach, pink and red.

5. Bare Escentuals Skinlongevity Eye Cream (N) : 

If your friend is new to using eye cream this is a great gift option. It’s lightweight and goes on smoothly with one swipe. It doesn’t crease, and you’ll be able to see a difference in the amount of crow’s feet or wrinkles around your eye area in just a few weeks.

6. Sephora Collection Makeup Brush Set (M) : 

This is a great gift because you can get two different sets at once. The first set comes with a complete eye shadow brush set, perfect for all the different colors of eyeshadow, plus brushes that work well for blending out colors and contouring for perfect cheekbones. The other brush set is perfect for defining brows and applying lip liner or lip gloss. Everyone needs a good set of brushes, especially if you’re new to makeup or have always wanted a great brush set.

7. Bare Escentuals Blush (M) : 

I love the way these blush goes on and it’s great for any color of skin as it doesn’t look too heavy at all. The color choices are amazing, like cherry kiss, cherry tint, cherry mocha and kit kat. It’s for medium skin tones and I love the way it looks on everyone. I usually get one for my best friend as well as myself.

8. Bare Escentuals Original Bronzer (M) : 

It’s the perfect gift for anyone who likes a bronze glow. The idea is to apply it with your fingers, then sweep across your face and blend the product out evenly. It goes on easy, especially if you want to use it as a contouring bronzer, and blends well with any foundation to give you that sun-kissed look. I like this one because it’s not too dark or too light so you can find the perfect shade.

9. Lancome Funny Face Kit (N) : 

This is a great gift for a teenager who loves makeup and wants to test out different colors. It comes with lipstick, lip liner, eye shadow, blush and mascara all in the same color family. It’s also great for tinted moisturizer because it goes on smoothly, lasts all day and even has SPF 15. Make sure you don’t get the one with waterproof mascara though, as it will clump really bad after only a few hours of use.

10. Bare Escentuals Blotting Powder (M) : 

This is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to get rid of a spot on their face. It’s great for anyone with acne, blemishes or skincare problems. It goes on like petroleum jelly and stays on until you’re ready to wash it off with warm water. I also use it on my skin all over to smooth out any blemishes or dry patches after moisturizing, and I find that it works better than anything else I’ve tried.
