Beauty Gifts Under $25 Makeup Lovers Will AdoreDecember 15, 2020
The list of people you need to shop for during the holiday season can get pretty lengthy (think: family, friends, coworkers). But here’s the good news — stocking up on great beauty gifts doesn’t have to drain your bank account. In fact, there are tons of affordable (and adorable!) options out there, from drugstore lip gloss trios to makeup sponge ornaments. Not sure where to start? We’re sharing our favorite gifts under $25 that any makeup obsessee in your life will love to unwrap this holiday.
We’ve been placing all the emphasis on our eye makeup recently (thank you, protective face mask!), which makes this primer and mascara the perfect 2020 gift. Not only will it make lashes look darker and smoother, but the gold, glitter packaging makes this duo a standout stocking stuffer.
Great for a boss, teacher, new home owner or TBH anyone, this candle set is an easy, no-brainer gift. It comes with three scents: French Cade, Goji and Lychee.
If your New Year’s resolution is to put down the straightening iron and set out on a mission for stronger, healthier hair, then you should scoop up this four-piece set. It contains the hair-nourishing Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner, Bond Smoother and Hair Perfector No. 3.
Whether you’re going to be under the mistletoe this holiday season or are simply looking to hydrate dry, chapped lips, check out this Lip Lifter trio from Maybelline. The glosses give lips major shine, a slight plump and tons of moisture — you’ll want to grab one for yourself and a friend.
Lawless The Baby One, $25
A thoughtful gift for your mom or moms-to-be, The Baby One is a great present to put under the tree. The palette has eight rosy shades, in matte and shimmer finishes, and it can be used to create a quick, natural look for on-the-go moms in five minutes or less.
Protective face masks are the new norm, but this shine-control primer and transfer-proof setting spray set will make sure makeup stays on all day anyway. It’s perfect to wrap and put under the tree, gift in a Secret Santa swap or use as a stocking stuffer. Want to up the ante on your gift? Throw in a cute face mask.
Complete with the shades Hallucination, Merry Merry Minty and Marshmallow Electro, this trio of high-shine lip glosses will instantly transport you or your childhood bestie back to your middle school days. Plus, the new-and-improved hydrating formulas will definitely make these glosses a winter staple.
A great gift for anyone who insists on being glam 24/7 (even when they’re not leaving their house), these beginner-friendly false lashes are a thoughtful yet affordable holiday gift. The faux-fiber lashes aren’t one-wear-and-done either — they can be used up to ten times.
Know someone who isn’t as diligent about cleaning their makeup brushes as they should be? Give them the gift of new (bacteria-free) makeup applicators with this sponge trio from Sephora. The box also comes with a hook, so you can put it on the tree as an ornament.
Start 2021 off on a positive note with this mini, six-pan palette from Urban Decay. The crystal-infused pigments are designed to keep away bad vibes. While we love that the palette helps balance energy, the shadows are also super creamy and pigmented.
