We all have that one friend that loves watching hair and makeup tutorials on YouTube. She might follow the methods of Michelle Phan, or she might be the one making the videos with her own blog.

In honor of the Beauty Blogging girl, we’ve put together a gift guide made especially for her to help find the perfect gift for this friend.

I’ve been a fan of Bottega Veneta for some time now. Their gorgeously crafted handbags that ooze chic without screaming “It bag” is a given, but they’ve really upped their game with their increasingly covetable ready-to-wear line.

Last year, the daughters of Benefit Cosmetics’ founders announced that they were joining their mothers’ company with the debut of a new line of cool and cute perfumes, inspired by London’s Crescent Row.
