Please help! I want to buy DN a make up selection box for her birthday but don't want to get the wrong brand! She likes make up but isn't girly, she uses social media a fair bit but AFAIK isn't into the full on contouring trend, she just likes making herself pretty (despite being gorgeous without any help) and trying out new stuff. A big box would go down better than lots of money going on a high end single item. Thank you! smile

benefit would be my choice, they do a lot of sets and the make up is good imo

Urban Decay Naked palette.

What's your budget?

Also, is she going to take care of it or throw it in a bag and smash it do you think?

I was going to say the urban decay book of shadows for a teenager, or any of their stuff really

Oh wow the book of shadows looks amazing. She would love that. Thank you!

I'd buy the Naked Smokey palette. It will go down well with a 16 year old.

If not UD what about MAC?
Also whilst the UD palettes are lovely the MUA dupes are pretty reasonable and good quality
