Gift Guide: The Makeup Lover

When I first decided that I wanted to do a gift guide series for the holidays I automatically started thinking about characters to base the gift guides on. Then I decided that one of the guides had to be dedicated to the makeup lover.  I myself really enjoy makeup but don't know everything there is to know about it. I usually stick to my comfort zone and use just about the same products everyday rarely switching up my beauty routine. One of my friends has a love for makeup products and experimenting with different looks. When I thought about this post I instantly decided who better to write a summary on the best  makeup gifts than this friend.

Please welcome Freshmen Fashion's very first guest editor, Meghan. You may know her by her YouTube screen name meg285xo.

Here's Meghan's gift guide for the makeup lover:

1.) e.l.f. Gem 11-Piece Ultimate Gem Collection ($25) -  "Great idea for a friend who likes makeup and doesn’t have any brushes. In my collection of makeup brushes I use a majority of e.l.f. brushes because they are inexpensive and good quality. Also, if you have a friend who has a lot of makeup these could be a fun collector's item for them to receive."
2.) Korres Lip Butter ($12) - "These products are very inexpensive but amazing! There is a wide variety in the color selection to fit just about any one on your gift list. Even if you are buying for someone who isn’t head over heels into makeup all girls love a good lip balm."
3.) Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Total Eye Look Kit ($10)  - "This great holiday gift comes with an eyeshadow quad, an eye liner, and a The Falsies mascara - one of my favorites! This gift item is great! It comes with great quality products that won't break the bank!"
4.) Hard Candy Holiday Glow Makeup Set ($5)  - "This cute kit includes 3 eyeshadows, 1 eye primer, and a blush and bronzer duo. Hard candy is an extremely pigmented brand and I highly recommend them. This kit is great to give as a stocking stuffer or if you're on a budget this kit will make a great present!"
5.) Stila Tiki Set Lip Glaze Trio ($8) - "These three gorgeous lip glosses will suit any skin tone. Having such high end glosses for under $10 is an insane deal, perfect for all of your friends!"
6.) Benefit Sexy Little Stowaways ($34)  - "This kit includes a lot of trial size products that makes it easy for a skeptical makeup lover to try a bunch of products. This is ideal for a family member or girlfriend and is a great price."
7.) Urban Decay Naked Palette 1 or 2 ($50) - "Both of these palettes are simply gorgeous! I personally own Naked 1 and use it daily. It contains all of the neutral shadows a girl could ever need." (Naked 1:, Naked 2:
