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 would say a Naked palette because there are a gagillion and 1 tutorials on every single one and you can do everything from easy everyday 2 or 3 shadow looks to a really bold smokey eye.  I would recommend getting her the Naked 3 because then you also get a months worth of eye primer.   Or get her this fabulous set because it comes with a the Argan Oil Light (a full size!), a small bottle of the colour match serum foundation and a full size of the powder foundation, and a great blush (again full size), throw in your favourite mascara (I love Tarte's lights, camera, lashes) and a lip gloss (nyx is my fave, or a Tarte lipsurgence) and she is set for face.s1573377-main-hero.jpg
