All of us have that one friend in our group or circle, who scores 10 out of 10 when it comes to her style and beauty game. They are the ones who help us with our last-minute rush to look fabulous for the party. They have the best hacks and advice up their sleeves when you’re clueless about what eyeshade or lip colour to pick according to your personality. And nothing could make them happier than giving them the gift of beauty. But picking gifts for such friends, who are well-versed with the A to Z about beauty and style, is harder than studying for a trigonometry exam. So here we are, to help you pick the right gift of the best beauty products for your friend this holiday season. The first piece of advice we’d give you is to make a gift basket of the best products that we’d suggest here for you. That way, you’ll be giving her the complete beauty solution for the season!Pick the right Primer
A primer acts as the perfect base for applying foundation or makeup on your face as it helps the product stay longer on your face and stops it from getting smudged off easily. It is extremely important that you use the perfect primer to provide a smooth surface for the makeup application. Our choice would be either the Clinique Superprimer Universal Faceprimer or the Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer. They not only provide a smooth surface but also protects the skin from residue damage.
The right foundation when applied appropriately on your skin can make you look flawless. It is the easiest way to achieve uniformity in your skin shade and surface. But picking a foundation for someone who is a beauty conscious person can be nerve-wracking. And to help you with that, we suggest these three products that are among our favourites. The Clinique Even Better Makeup, Revlon Colorstay Makeup Foundation for Normal & Dry and the Revlon Colorstay Makeup Foundation for Combination & Oily are new-age liquid foundation products that give equal complexion and covers flaw and uneven surface.

If your friends are the ones who love to flaunt their sun-kissed glow not just during the summers, but all the year-long. Then a good gifting option you can explore is to gift them a premium quality, all-season bronzer. Two of the best products in this category that we would suggest are the Clinique True Bronze Pressed and Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess. They are innovative powder-based products that can be rinsed off without an effort and doesn’t harm the skin too.
If they are the ones who can floor anyone by sampling battling their beautiful and luscious eyelashes, then one of the best product you can gift them is a long-lasting, waterproof Mascara. If there’s something we are proud of from our Make-Up segment, then it is our range of intense volume mascaras and eyeliners that help achieve dramatic lashes and finish with zero flakings. Our picks? The Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner, Lancome Art Liner Eyeliner, Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara and Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara.

The BB Cream, or Blemish Balm cream is boon for beauty product lovers. This product is a combination of a primer, moisturizer, foundation and SPF in a tube. They provide great protection, moisturization and a natural-looking glow. Gifting this daily use cream will bring a smile on their faces. Two of our top favourite BB creams are Decleor Hydra Floral Bb Cream 24 Hour Moisture Activator with SPF 15 and the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions BB Cream with SPF 40.
One of the most dreaded and difficult task after a night of partying or attending a get together is the removal of makeup from the face before hitting the sack. If you’re gifting a collection of best makeup products to your friend, make sure you add a good quality cleansing solution in the kit. The Lancome Galateis Douceur Gentle Softening Cleansing Fluid, Bioderma Sensibio H2O AR, Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water and La Roche Posay Ultra Micellar Cleansing Water are our picks when it comes to the best and skin-sensitive makeup removal products.

If you’re someone who is busy working, mostly on the move and cannot take out time to pick and choose the right beauty product for your friends this holiday season, then the easiest hack is to present them a little of everything. A vanity cosmetics case is something that has everything a woman would need to look at her beautiful best, anytime, anywhere. Trust us, this is just like carrying your beauty salon in a box everywhere. For the ones who travel, the Technic Essentials Clear Carry Case Makeup Set is the best. For those who prefer doing their makeup themselves, the 60 Piece Urban Beauty Vanity Case has everything they want and ask for.
This holiday season, show your beauty conscious bestie or sibling that you appreciate their efforts to look their best every day with these gifts and then just step back and watch that smile take over their face!
