If you consider your Instagram a way of life like I do, chances are you have a color-fanatic bestie who plans out his or her feed days (and sometimes, WEEKS) in advance. If they also happen to love color not only on their feed, but on their faces and hair, look no further than this color-fanatic gift guide to help make some of your holiday shopping for them a little easier.
The ultimate color fanatic needs a great rainbow palette — that’s why the NYX Professional Makeup Brights palette is first on the list. Your bestie will be able to create a massive variety of looks that either focus on one of their favorite chromas, or can mix a few of their favorites together.
Gifting your color-fanatic bestie an electric colored pencil from Urban Decay will add some major dimension to their always color-coordinated look. Bonus: Some of these pencils are duochrome, which will have their heads absolutely spinning.
Pow lipstick is a color fanatic’s favorite, so it’s only apropos to include the NYX Pin-Up Pouts in a gift set for them this year. These babies come in all different colors and tones and are super easy to mix and match with a variety of different cheek and eye colors.
If your color loving bestie is truly daring with their hair look, this semi-permanent hair color is for them. It washes out, so it’s low commitment — but it’s also a fun way for a color fiend to switch up their look.
