Need suggestions for Birthday Beauty Gifts!

My little cousin is turning 13 this month, and she has just started getting into make-up. Just some eyeliner and powder foundation, not too much. I thought it would be lovely if I took her to Sephora to pick out her own products, of course with a $60 limit (i'm a college student, not made of money!). The only problem is, I have NO idea what products to guide her towards! She wants me to teach her how to use eyeshadow, so I need suggestions on what brands to use. I'm thinking Sephora brand, since she is just learning. But as for any other product types, like lip gloss/mascara/etc., any suggestions would be extremely helpful!

I know the Stila palettes are 39 each, but they come with a liner and an instruction book, so that might be good for your cousin who is just learning.  The palettes come mostly with neutrals with a few pops of color, depending which one you get (the ones called "In the Garden", "In the Know", "In the Light" and "In the Moment".


How about he Chocolate Bar palette?  If we love it, can you imagine how fun a 13 year old would think it was?!


I also think Philosophy The Birthday Girl set…..comes with gloss, too. s1493477-main-hero.jpgs1346667-main-grid.jpgs1440296-main-grid.jpgs1381235-main-grid.jpgs1365428-main-grid.jpg
