  • yeah pallettes of colour so that she can pick any shade she likes or gift cards are perfect for this reason! electronic cards are great too


  • I would suggest taing her into myer or the likes and getting her to have her make up done buy the attendants, as a treat and tell her your will buy her a couple of the things that suit her. Or you could host a makeup party and have her as the model that gets done over and buy a couple of the things that match her according to the make up artist. If you invite a group of other people you can get it at a good price as you get a discount depending on sales… It could be a good excuse to catch up with people you havent seen in a while and have a little fun.


  • Nail polish isn’t too personal. Or a makeup caddy/ organiser. Or makeup tools like brushes.


  • I have a few ideas….from a mum with a 19 year old girlie girl
    * a make up bag
    * mirror (or one with a built in light)
    * hair ties (can’t get enough haha)
    * a key locked diary
    * funky drink bottle

    Happy shopping and I hope she enjoys whatever you choose


  • A voucher or gift card would be perfect for her – then she can choose her own make-up.


  • Gift cards are great in this situation, as are makeup sessions that can be pre-purchased. You may find she might also like a manicure or pedicure gift card too.


  • What about a Priceline gift card ? So she can choose what she wants.
