Not all moms are created equal, so shopping for the perfect Mother's Day gift isn’t always easy. Whether you are shopping for your mom, grandma, sister, or friend, there's one thing that a lot of moms have in common — their love for beauty products. I definitely inherited my love for makeup from my mom, who thrives on her carefully curated arsenal. If your mom is obsessed with makeup, fragrance, and skin care like mine, there are some awesome ideas for Mother's Day gifts for the beauty junkie.
Shopping for a beauty junkie is actually pretty easy, as long as you know what kind of shades and brands she enjoys. If you aren’t sure about what colors to choose, you can always get her some practical beauty tools, like makeup brushes or beauty bags. Either way, the options for the beauty addict are endless, and it’s easy (and fun) to get lost in it. (I mean, have you seen all of these beauty subscription boxes popping up? There's your gift right there and it's already wrapped.)
If you need a little help picking out the perfect gift for your glamorous mama, I've got some expertise. Here are 10 awesome beauty products that will surely delight her this Mother’s Day.

Every beauty junkie can use a trendy, functional pouch to carry their essentials in, but what if that gift could actually benefit the world as well?
