Some girls are basic. You can get them NARS Orgasm or a Naked palette and make their Christmas. I mean, who wouldn't want a bestseller like that? Someone who already has it--that's who.
Beauty junkies are much harder to please. You need to get them gifts that they haven't already swatched, stalked and purchased at Sephora. You need to get them something on the cutting edge of beauty technology--like magnetic eyeslashes or straightener made with diamond dust. Or another way to go is a collectors' item, like an Urban Decay Vault or Pat McGrath Curated.
