Top 10 Makeup Products to Gift for Christmas

As Christmas season approaches many friends and family are trying to find the perfect gift. Makeup is a great gift for girls and guys and can add a nice touch to a holiday look.

10) Foundation

Foundation can make your skin look flawless and make you feel on top of everything but a lot of people nowadays don’t use it on the daily and probably have 3 other foundations they’ve wanted to try out. Some foundations have either made their skin oily or patchy by the end of the day. Also, if you gift a girl a bottle of foundation…she may think you’re politely saying she needs to use it.

Some good brands of foundation are:

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation $39

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation $7.99

9) Eyeliner
