I get it: The party animal in your life isn’t always easy to shop for — after all, neon accessories and packaged bubbly can only go so far. That’s why buying beauty gifts for your party animal BFF is the perfect solution. The following products will help her prep for a killer night out, and she’ll use them time and time again for many wild evenings to come.
The key to great night-out makeup is using a skin-prepping mask prior to application. I Dew Care Disco Kitten is the perfect peel-off option to get your BFF’s skin plump, hydrated and ready for foundation. Bonus: It’s a diamond silver shade that will have her feeling ready for the disco even before she throws on her glitter.
For heavy metal party eye makeup, look no further than Urban Decay’s Troublemaker Palette. Chock full of glittering pigments, your party-animal makeup lover can swipe on a combo of the brighter colors in the palette for a more whimsical feel — or pack on the darker shadows for a smoked-out look.
What’s a party look without actual glitter to add major dimension to your eyes, lips or face. All in one kit, this NYX glitter goals box includes a few shades of gorgeous flecks and the glitter glue your BFF will need to apply it flawlessly.
A long night of partying also requires a lip color that can withstand hours of drinking, eating and dancing — and that’s where Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick comes in. Pick up one or two of these to add to your BFF’s party-animal gift, and they’ll be thanking you for nights to come.
If your partying BFF opts for a creamier textured lippie, the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Dazzling Lights Edition Lipstick is the one for him or her. Plus, the packaging screams holiday and party, so it’s just the right amount of festive-cool.
Your party-animal BFF knows the hardest part of every night out is remembering to take off their makeup at the end of the night! Make it easy for him or her by picking up the Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover that will wipe their faces clean before some much-needed sleep.
