Shopping makeup and beauty items for teens is tricky business: veer too young and she’ll laugh in your face. Veer too old and you’ll offend her mom. Steer clear of those Justin Bieber themed-gift sets which are best reserved for the tweens and instead, check out this list for some great holiday gift ideas for those gals on your list, 15 and up.
Philosophy Holiday Kisses
Philosophy makes some great holiday gift sets that are perfect for gals just about any age. They’re fun, cheeky and great quality, too. The Holiday Kisses gift set features four, juicy tubes of lip glosses that go on sheer with a hint of color. Plus, they’ll love the playful packaging and tasty holiday flavors like Red Velvet Cake, Frosted Cookie and Candy Cane.
Ciaté Mini Mani Set
Nail Polish is a great go-to gift when you have a beauty babe on your list, but aren’t exactly sure what to get. We’re just loving the Ciaté Mini Mani Advent Calendar Set, which holds beautiful nail polish behind each door. The set includes 17 of Ciaté’s best selling shades, three paint pot glitter shades and four mini caviar blends. This gift is a must-have for any nail junkie you know of, adults and teens alike!
Sonia Kashuk Gilded Cage Holiday Brush 6-Piece Set
Give the girl the right tools to put her best face forward with a set of professional makeup brushes. The Sonia Kashuk Gilded Cage Holiday Brush 6-piece Set from Target is a great price point, includes all the brushes she’ll need and comes packed in a beautiful metallic clutch that can be used for evening. The brushes make a glamorous statement in their black-and-gold fishnet pattern and she’ll love how elegant the gold glitter clutch is.
Urban Decay Feminine, Dangerous, Fun Palettes
Urban Decay is known for their funky colors and playful makeup, which is great for the teen set young and bold enough to experiment with cool makeup shades. The Urban Decay Feminine, Dangerous, Fun Palettes come in three different options and includes six, shimmery eye shadow shades with a matching lip gloss. Another good bet to try are the Urban Decay Glide-On Shadow Pencils. These waterproof eyeshadow/eyeliner combos come in eight cool colors and leave behind a beautiful, shimmery finish that any gal is sure to love.
