We all have that one person on our Christmas list that knows Sephora aisles better than they understand their medical plans, that can't shop for groceries without donning the no-makeup makeup look, or that prefers watching beauty tutorials over the latest episode of Riverdale. So, when the holiday comes around, it's clear that they should get something beauty-related as a gift. But what do you get the person who keeps track of every Ulta launch and has VIB Rouge status?
First, you want to make sure it's something the beauty fan in your life will actually use. What product do they restock often, like mascara or an application sponge? Second, you'll need to make sure it's not something they already have in their curated collection. Think: brand-new launches and limited-edition holiday sets from buzzy brands.
Still stumped? We've rounded up a few gifts that will make it seem like you know a thing or two about beauty trends — even if you don't know the difference between baking and draping. From makeup brush sets to Insta-famed face masks, ahead are the best holiday gifts to make a splash with the beauty lovers in your life.

Milk Makeup x Sephora Collection Studio Brush Set
Makeup fans know that brushes lose their freshness after the first few uses: They're not as soft, bristles go missing, and there's old makeup that just won't get out no matter how much you scrub. So, gift them a brand-new set from a must-have collab that won't break the bank.

If the person you're shopping for doesn't leave the house without a full face of makeup, help simplify the nightly removal routine. These reusable, washable cleansing pads replace makeup wipes by wiping off foundation, mascara, and any other makeup with just water. Then, just throw it into the laundry load. It lasts 200 uses, so this 3-pack will probably keep them happy well past next Christmas.
