Makeup as a gift?

10 Aug

Hi everyone! So I get asked a lot by my friends about getting other people makeup as a birthday present or Christmas or whenever you give presents. And I am kind of on the fence for this question. I’m going to present some thoughts that go through my brain if I was going to give makeup to my friends as presents.

1. Do NOT give makeup to friends


– You don’t know their color likes and dislikes or you could totally pick a wrong color for their skintone.

– If your friend is a makeup collector (like me) they could possibly have the same color or product in their collection.

2. Give makeup to your friends


– Get a makeup bag and fill it up with some goodies and if they don’t like something they always have something else.

– Give them new products to try out such as an outrageous eyeshadow color or a new lip color without them having to commit to a full-sized product.

For me I only give makeup for those starting out with makeup so for those going into highschool or prom. That is where I do the works and go shopping with them to test out shades of color and such. For those who are already into makeup I give them hard to find items (or items they wouldn’t think about getting themselves) or products that are a staple in makeup collection.

Foundation, face powder, and concealer are extremely hard to match to a person so I would stay away from them. Everything else is fair game!
