Perfect Gifts For The Christmas Season

With everyone sipping on the hot coffee and preparing for the Christmas season, we are sure you have been thinking, “what should I gift to my loved one?” Honestly, everyone chooses body washes, bath bombs, clothing, and decoration pieces for gifting purposes, but hey, if you are choosing something for a woman, cosmetics can be the best gifts out there. So, if you are ready to choose the best gift this Christmas season, we are sharing some of the best options!


If you are finding a gift for someone who loves watching YouTube tutorials and trying out new eye makeup techniques, gifting an eyeshade palette is the perfect option. Truth be told, everyone opts for pink and nude eyeshade palettes, but this season, stick to the blues and whites. The eyeshade palette with blues and base colors will be all they need to create the snowy eye makeup with the availability of blue, silver, and white colors. We don’t mind saying that this is a perfect eyeshade palette for everyone who is into blues and like to make vibrant eye makeup looks.

Matte Lipstick

There is no better gift than a liquid matte lipstick for people who love makeup. So, it’s best to opt for the densely-pigmented liquid matte lipstick. Matte lipstick is actually a great gift option if the recipient likes playing with makeup. In fact, opting for red color is a perfect choice if they like bold makeup looks. You can either give it as the ultimate gift or add it to the holiday gift basket to add sprucing to the gifting purposes. But hey, don’t forget to opt for a vegan and cruelty-free option!

Creamy Lipgloss

As Christmas is just around the corner, every woman is looking for a perfect red lipstick that adds sprucing to their look and adds a pop of color. Having said that, a creamy lipgloss is something that you must gift to your loved one. This is because the creamy lipgloss can add sheer yet luminous shine to the lips while the creamy formulation keeps the lips moisturized. In fact, the creamy lipgloss with vitamins will help keep their lips moisturized. So, add a creamy lipgloss to the gift hamper and have them flaunt a red pout this Christmas season or at the New Year’s party. 

Makeup Brushes 

The makeup vanity is incomplete without makeup brushes. Honestly, the majority of women still blend the makeup with fingers – sure, it promises great blending but it can leave behind some streaks of unblended makeup. Having said that, if you are still looking for a gift for your loved one, giving them a makeup brush set is an ultimate choice. For instance, a makeup brush set includes the contour brush, eyeshade brushes, eyebrow-shaping brush, foundation brush, blush brush, and more to ensure their makeup looks are blended to perfection. Not to forget, choosing a makeup brush set with a case is better as it has a better presentation and looks good as a gift!

So, which makeup product are you getting for your loved one, then?


Must-Have Makeup Items For Christmas

The holiday season is here, and it wouldn’t be wrong to call it the best time of the year. However, it’s the busiest time of the year, and you end up becoming the social butterfly (isn’t your social calendar jam-packed?). Ranging from family parties to office gatherings, there are so many events to attend, and you obviously need to get ready, right? 

So, with this article, we are sharing the must-have makeup in your vanity to look at your best in all those parties!


To begin with, the holiday season is hard on the skin due to all that makeup, and chilly winds just add dryness to your skin. For this reason, it’s important to apply moisturizer to the skin to ensure it’s supple and soft for the makeup to be applied. Having said that, if your moisturizer bottle has ended, it’s time to purchase a new one!


Sure, you spent the year with the bare-minimum makeup, but it’s time to invest in a good foundation to create a perfect canvas for makeup. It’s suggested to opt for a full-coverage foundation as it works better for the parties. Also, make sure that your foundation matches the skin tone so you don’t end up looking like a ghost (unless you are dressing up as a ghost for Halloween). 

Moisturizing Lipstick 

Since it’s winter and you must be already struggling with chapped lips, having moisturizing lipstick is actually a great choice. A moisturizing lipstick will simply glide on your lips, and you will have the perfect pout while nourishing them with the moisturizing properties. So, this is another must-have cosmetic in your vanity this holiday season!

Finish Powder 

Sure, it’s winter, and you won’t be sweating but applying a finish powder does more than that. For instance, applying the finish powder will ensure that your foundation stays in place and doesn’t shift. In fact, it has the capacity to ensure your makeup stays on longer while creating a smooth canvas for the skin. So, get your hands on the finish powder and thank us later!


You really cannot neglect eye makeup on holiday season parties because, hey, you have got to look the best! For this reason, investing in a liquid eyeliner will actually help you attain a great eye makeup look and add a perfect finishing. An eyeliner with the precise tip will ensure that you can create the winged eyeliner or cat eyeliner, whatever suits your look!

Eyebrow Pencil 

Imagine creating the best makeup look for yourself, and your eyebrows are in chaos – won’t that be frustrating? Well, you can fix that issue by investing in the eyebrow pencil. With an eyebrow pencil, you can draw eyebrows of your choice and make sure they are even, so your makeup look appears well-put-together. But hey, use it carefully because you don’t want to end up with weird-looking eyebrows!


When the entire world is lit up for holidays, why don’t you add some glamour to your face with a highlighter? In case you don’t have a highlighter already, purchase one and add an amazing glow to your face!

Secret Tips To Make The Foundation Stay On Longer

With Thanksgiving arriving on 25th November, you must be thinking about the makeup looks that you are going to create on your face canvas, but hey, who is going to think about the slip-and-slide? 

Honestly, every woman struggles with shifting foundation. It doesn’t matter if you are using the long-stay foundation, using the wrong application techniques will create chaos on your face. So, if you are ready to flaunt the best makeup look with a perfectly settled foundation, let’s check out the secrets to attain such results!

Use The Setting Spray 

Sure, we all spritz setting spray on the face when the makeup is done but does that do the trick? Nope!

The trick is to mix the foundation with your setting spray before you apply it to the face. This is a tried-and-technique, and the makeup artists literally swear by the results. So, pump out the foundation, spray some setting spray on it, mix, and apply!

Shave The Face 

If you are someone with facial hair, opting for dermaplaning is a long-term solution to achieve a smooth and hairless face. However, nobody got time for that when Thanksgivings is just around the corner. Well, as it turns out, you can spritz some rose water on your face and use a hair-wicking device to clear off the facial hair. Honestly, it will ensure that the foundation glides on perfectly!

Prime The Face

Every woman has bought the high-end primer to prime the face and create a porcelain canvas for applying makeup, but primers don’t always do the job, especially when you have to ensure the foundation doesn’t shift. Having that said, priming the face with setting sprays does wonders as it ensures a better foundation holder. In addition, it reduces the appearance of pores just like a primer while creating a healthier skin appearance. 

Use That Beauty Blender

Don’t we all just dab the foundation with fingers and glide away the brush? Well, it’s time to bid farewell to those techniques and opt for a beauty blender. That’s because a beauty blender ensures proper settling of the foundation. In fact, if you just soak the beauty blender in setting spray (just dampen it, babe), the results will be oh-so-amazing!

The Powder

If you are someone with oily skin who just can’t get the foundation to stay in place, the setting powder will do the trick to perfection. However, be mindful about how much powder you apply because too much will break the foundation and create cracks throughout the foundation. Even more, you can dab some powder on your face before applying the foundation, promising smooth foundation application! 

Always Moisturize 

We might be late in telling you this, but moisturized skin has a better capacity of holding the foundation as compared to dry and chapped skin. That being said, before you apply the setting spray and loose powder, add some moisturizer on the skin and create the baseline for the foundation. 

To summarize, if you are ready to flaunt an amazing foundation, follow these tips and you can even find the foundation and setting powder at discounted prices (Ola Julie Cosmetics is having the Black Friday sale on Friday, so get your shopping cart in order!).
