Gift Guide for the Makeup Lover

Hey y’all! I’m back! I didn’t mean to take Tuesday off, but some unforeseen events occurred, and it just didn’t feel right to publish a post. As you’re reading this, I’m probably having my wisdom teeth removed or I’ve made it back home and I’m drooling all over the place while consuming liquid foods. Wow, doesn’t that sound appealing?? Haha, well while I’m at home all drugged up, here’s some makeup items that are all under $20 that I’m sure any makeup lover would love to receive!

Perfect gifts for the makeup lover in your life. All under $20! | Makeup Lover Gift Guide

I already own a lot of stuff that’s on this list, so I can definitely vouch for how amazing it all is. Those makeup sponges are a life saver when it comes to applying liquid foundation, blending out concealer, or buffing in some liquid/cream contour. Everyone needs a quality pair (or pairs because let’s be honest, tweezers always seem to go missing) of tweezers to get those brows on point. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with a single ELF lip color. And to top it all off, those makeup brushes are killer and I use them almost ever single day.
