If you have a makeup obsessed person in your life, chances are you’re pretty familiar with certain makeup terminology such as dupes, palettes and haul.  But what do you get the makeup lover in your life that has just about EVERYTHING??  Below are a few ideas to get you off to a great start this Valentines Day season.

Beauty Subscription Boxes

Gift Beauty subscription boxes are a great way to try a little bit of everything before making a commitment. You can even get pretty specific and choose boxes that are geared more towards skin care or even clothing and fragrance!

Here are some of my subscription boxes:


I love perfumes, but hate committing to a full bottle that I probably wont see the bottom of for years.

Scentbird solves that problem by letting you purchase a 1 oz size of your favorite perfumes for only $14.95 a month!


This service is a personal favorite of mine!  Every month you get at least 5 full sized beauty products to try for only $21 a month!  Most of my eye shadow palettes have come from Boxycharm! $21 is a steal for products that total over $100 at least every month.


Julep Beauty Box Subscription

Lets not forget about the nail obsessed.  There is something for them too! Julip is a monthly nail subscription service that offers new nail polish colors every month.  They are even starting to branch out into makeup and skincare too.


Every makeup hoarder could use a place to store their spoils. Why not give them a storage solution like the ones below!

The Sodynee Acrylic Makeup Organizer

This piece is great because there is plenty of room for lipsticks, liners and a few shadow palettes plus the see-through acrylic make finding things really easy.

Clear, Acrylic Palette Organizer by Alegory

Did you know that palette organizers were a thing? Well you do know! This piece is perfect for those who want to organize their palette collection in a neat and easy to use way.

Alex 9 Unit Drawer by Ikea

No storage solution would be complete without mentioning the YouTube famous Alex drawers. If your Valentine is a neat freak as well as a makeup lover, then this would be perfect! It does take up a bit of space, but the amount of storage you get in return makes it worth it.

There are a few things to keep in mind when cosmetics shopping for someone else:

  • Stay away from anything skin tone specific. Unless you have access to their holy grail foundation and consealer shades, I would skip this one all together.
  • Avoid buying makeup from places like Ebay. You never know what you’ll end up with.
  • If all else fails…gift cards are the way to go. No beauty lover on earth would say no to a Sephora gift card!
