While you know the adventurous beauty maximalists in your life will be over the moon with a bright red lipstick or a glittery blue shadow, gift shopping for those who don’t wear a lot of makeup can feel a bit daunting. Of course, you want to pick something that’s actually good (read: no cakey-looking foundations or irritating liquid eyeshadows), while also making sure it’s not too over-the-top for their everyday routine. Fortunately, there happens to be plenty of minimalist beauty gifts for the no-makeup makeup lover on your list.
For starters, if they aren’t one to apply much eye makeup, pick a product that will focus on another area, like their brows. From micro-fine eyebrow pencils to tinted waxes, there are new formulas cropping up that make it easy to achieve Lily Collins-inspired full arches. Or, if they can’t stand the look of a heavy foundation, go with a lightweight skin tint (see: Ilia’s Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation). And if they really don’t wear any makeup at all, help them simplify their skin care routine by gifting them with a multi-tasking product, such as Tatcha’s buzzy new Indigo Overnight Repair Serum in Cream Treatment.
Ahead, take a look at 20 beauty products that your minimalist friend will reach for over and over again. Everything on the list will be the perfect addition to their everyday beauty regimen.
