9 Gift Ideas For Your Makeup-Hoarding Friend

If you think that giving a makeup fiend more makeup as a gift is a bad idea, then you're sadly mistaken. What you should avoid are those 50-shade eyeshadow, lip gloss and blush trunks that include only a few colors she actually likes.

Instead, look for the latest beauty products that come packaged in simpler sets, like a gorgeous nail polish and lipstick combos or a four-piece smokey eye palette. (She'd get more use out of her brand new item and it won't get lost in her stash.)

Here are nine gift ideas that will get you cool points with your makeup-hoarding friend.
