So the holiday season is well and truly upon us now, and most people are thinking about what to give as presents. Makeup and beauty products are often a good idea, but you shouldn't buy just any old item, you need to think carefully beforehand. Here are our top tips for stocking stuffers:
Although it might seem like a good idea, lipstick is a actually a pretty tricky present to give, unless you know the exact color that the recipient is after. This is because women may have their favorite shades, or colors they wear a lot, but this doesn't mean the same color will suit their skintone, including the undertones. For this same reason you should stay away from foundations. Go for a pretty blush instead, a mascara, or a transparent balm for chapped lips.
Because winter can take its toll on your tresses and face, skin and haircare products can be a really lovely present idea. What about a moisturizing hair masque for your mom, who suffers from dry ends ? Or a rich, replenishing face moisturizer for your sister? Or even a beauty serum for..yourself! Well, you deserve a treat, don't you?
Nail polishes are a great choice for stocking stuffers and small present ideas. If you're not completely sure what colors the person in question likes, go for a transparent base or top coat , with the added bonus of nail protecting and strengthening.
And, in case you were wondering...we wouldn't say no to any of these presents!
