5 Gift Ideas for Your Insta-Famous Friend
Okay, so maybe your friend isn't quite an influencer — yet. All you know is that you, as well as the rest of her followers, can always count on her to post the most double-tap-worthy pics. Your BFF has radar for what everyone is going to want (that amazing lash kit, for starters), and she manages to get her hands on it before it inevitably sells out. Plus, she just has a good eye for what's cool and knows how to make the most out of it on-screen. Whenever you need a new highlighter or a last-minute present for your little sister, she's your go-to.
So you can't just give your Insta-famous friend any old gift for the holidays. She deserves something out of the ordinary, just like her. Don't worry: You don't have to investigate what next month's must-have gift will be — or visit a psychic to figure it out, which might actually be easier. Just get her some gifts that'll look so good on her feed, her phone will be overloaded (in a good way) with notifications. The more photogenic, the better. Think along the lines of a major (and majorly pretty) makeup palette or a set of showstopping earrings. We've partnered with Sephora to bring you the most enviable, 'grammable gifts for the social media star in your life.
Mega Makeup Collection
To sum up this gift in one word: whoa. The Sephora Collection Into The Stars Palette houses 130 (nope, that's not a typo) makeup items for eyes, lips, and face. Inside it are 80 eyeshadows, five bronzers and luminizers, five blushes, 20 lip glosses, five color correctors, 10 cream eyeliners, and five brow powders. Overwhelmed? No sweat: It comes with two tutorials, complete with tips approved by makeup artists.
So. Much. Mascara.
It's the mother lode of mascara. This kit includes seven deluxe-size and two full-size mascaras from different brands. With classics like Dior Diorshow Mascara and Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara, it has everything your friend needs for long, thick, "seriously, are those real?" lashes.
Earrings, $28, similar styles at Topshop
Take her selfie to the next level with a set of epic earrings. The perfect combo of delicate, dangly, and bold, earrings like these are all she needs to dress up an LBD or brighten up an otherwise basic outfit.
These palettes have been known to sell out faster than you can say, "Happy holidays," and this one is bound to be a similar success. Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Eye Shadow Palette offers a range of wearable neutrals (ideal for the office or class) and glittery brights (for all of those holiday parties). With this lineup, the sky's the limit.
Chic Phone Case
A gift that's less for her pics and more for her actual device, this leather case looks sleek and will keep her phone in one piece. It might be the most thoughtful gift of all, because there's no 'gram without an actual phone.
