Gifts For Makeup Lovers That Aren't More Makeup

Trying to find the perfect present for the makeup lover in your life? I can tell you from experience that the last thing any beauty addict needs is more beauty products. As a product hoarder myself, I know that girls who really love makeup already have enough eye shadow palettes, foundations, brushes, skincare creams, etc. (the list could go on forever) to last them a lifetime. If you want to get them something really special for the holiday season, focus on an accessory or piece of clothing that describes their love for beauty items instead.

Not only is this a more fun option, it's also a safer one: When picking out a makeup item, you run the risk of either buying them something they already have or something they really don't like. And sure, a gift card to the holy ground that is Sephora is always a good idea, but sometimes you just wanna do a little extra.

Whether you're trying to pick a gift for your best friend who is never seen without lipstick on or the person you got in Secret Santa you know nothing about except that they can do an impressive cat eye, there's something for everyone here. From useful makeup pouches to cute clothes to a little bit of home decor, there are a lot of options — and they're so cute that you won't even know how to pick your favorite.

1. A Lipstick Tee

Sincerely Jules Lipstick & Lashes Tee, $49, Nordstrom

This lipstick and lashes tee is glamorous and cute at the same time, and it was created by super chic Instagram style blogger Sincerely Jules. Get this for your friend who loves makeup and can't resist a good graphic tee.

2. An Eyebrow Appreciation Pouch

We all know at least one person who has a serious eyebrow obsession. This pouch is perfect for the beauty guru in your life whose brows are always on fleek, and can act as a casual clutch or a makeup bag.

3. Lipstick Patch

Patches are super popular right now and make a great small gift, or something little you can add to a bigger gift. This lipstick patch is beyond cute and would look great on jeans, a leather jacket, or even to decorate a bag.

4. Sephora Makeup Bag

This makeup pouch is large enough to fit lots of products and cute enough that you'll want to bring it everywhere. It's so cute that you'll want to use it as a clutch instead of just a makeup pouch.

5. Contour Tee

10. Lipstick Scarf

Bouffants and Broken Hearts Black Lipstick Scarf, $60, Fab

The coolest thing about this scarf isn't the glamorous print all over it — it's the fact that the lipstick color is black rather than something more classic like red or pink. It's a little pricey, but it's perfect for the unique beauty lover in your life.

11. Brush Tote Bag

No product junkie could ever have enough makeup bags, but sometimes you need something a little bit bigger. This cute tote bag is good for traveling with a lot of products or using for basically anything.

This watercolor mug is so pretty and, obviously, useful. It's a great option if you want to give them something they'll love that doesn't contribute to their beauty collection.

There is no shortage of makeup prints on the Internet, especially on Etsy, and it can be overwhelming to search through them. This one says everything perfectly and is so pretty to look at. It's also an instant download, which makes gift giving so much easier.

Time Los Angeles Makeup or Die Phone Case, $15, Shop Timela

Get this for the diehard beauty fan in your life. The best thing about this option is that it's offered for iPhone 6 phones, but also for iPhone 4 and 5, and Samsungs. It's hard to find cases that are offered for a variety of phones!
