Essentials for makeup beginners

For friends who are still trying to learn their way around makeup, the ideal gift for them are blushes or mascaras. They’re easy to use and can be easily incorporated into everyday makeup looks. 

I’M MEME’s I’m Afternoon Tea Blusher Palette is perfect for making your complexion look fresh and awake. Ideal for simple looks, this tri-color palette offers a translucent and natural-looking finish. Nothing completes a makeup look like mascara. MISSHA’s Ultra Powerproof Mascara adds both volume and lift to lashes. Your giftee won’t have to worry about smudging, thanks to its long-lasting waterproof formula. 

There’s also no need to buy gift wrapping for these presents. Put the gift in a cute makeup pouch and you’re good to go!
