The season of gift-giving has finally arrived and we only have a few days until Christmas! While it excites us to think of all the amazing gifts we’ll receive, we also feel a little stressed over choosing gifts that we’ll be giving out for our family and friends.
It’s agreeable that finding gifts for someone you know really well is easy. If they’re a fan of music, you can get them the new album of their favorite band. If they like to read, you can get them that new book by their favorite author.
But what if you know they’re fond of makeup and that it’s all they want for Christmas? How do you know what makeup products are you going to give them when you don’t even know what contouring, concealing, or highlighting means? What is the difference between the foundation and the concealer?
Fret no more! We got five items listed below that are perfect gifts for your makeup-loving friend!
1. Makeup Bag
There’s one thing that makeup lovers can agree with and that is nothing is more annoying than seeing your makeup disorganized inside of your bag. Save that makeup fanatic you know from having to dig their bags by giving them a makeup bag! It keeps all their essentials in one place. You can purchase makeup bags online or from accessible malls.
2. Makeup Brush Set
Each makeup product has a specific brush to be used so that the product can be fully maximized and give the best effect. Basic makeup brush sets usually include a brush for foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, eyebrow, and lip. However, there are sets that include more brushes. In fact, some products use more than one brush. Take, for example, the eyeshadow. Since two or more colors are going to be blended, there should be one brush for each color. Another brush is also used to buff the powder out and blend the colors.
3. Nude Eyeshadow Palette
A Nude eyeshadow palette is an ideal gift as nude colors are good for casual everyday looks or formal events. Aside from being eyeshadows, these colors can also be used for other parts of the face such as the nose (creating the shadows for the noseline) and as a blush (to give the illusion of sharper cheekbones). Many makeup brands sell nude eyeshadow palettes, and basic palettes usually have six nude colors.
We’re not talking about highlighters that you used back in college to take notes. This highlighter we’re talking about is much like a sparkly eyeshadow. They come in bright colors, and they are used to make the face glow. It is usually applied on the cheeks, the tip of the nose, and the bow of the upper lip.
5. Setting Spray
This is the last product that is applied after a whole makeup application process. It helps in keeping the makeup intact. It can also be used to hydrate the skin and keep it refreshed even when they’re not wearing makeup.
