So you want to give a really cool and personal Christmas gift, but you're not sure how to gift beauty products. We get it, buying makeup for others can be so hard! You're not sure which shade they are or what their preferences might be, etc.

That's where we come in.

We put together this step-by-step guide on how to gift beauty products for your friends and family.

1. Stay away from concealers and foundations.

Unless you know the exact skin tone of your recipient, we recommend skipping these products. Matching shades can be hard enough to do for ourselves let alone someone else!

 2. Shine Control Powder is a really great starting point.

Everybody sweats. Everybody gets T-zone shiny. Shine Control Powder is a great gift for all of the makeup lovers in your life. It's translucent, so it works on all skin tones, and it's a product that everybody needs in a pinch.

3. Go for Highlighter. It's fun, easy to apply, and universally flattering!

If you're trying to decide between the two Subtl Beauty Highlighter options, our Champagne highlighter is a good starting point since it works for all skin tones and is a more traditional shade. If you're shopping for your fun/edgier makeup friends, we highly recommend our new Rosé highlighter. Same formula, with a beautiful cool, rosey tint.

4. Lip and cheek stain is easy to gift if you follow this guide...

Mauve Lip Cheek tones are universally flattering, it's a great classic color and it happens to be our best-seller.

Dusty Rose Lip Cheek shades also work well for all skin tones but have this warm, rusty undertone that makes this shade a little edgier than the Muave. Great for your trendsetting friends.

Perfectly Pink Lip Cheek, or light-pink shades in general, tend to be on the lighter side and work the best on fair skin.

5. Bronzer can be shade-dependent as well.

Our cool-toned Bronzer is matte and is best for contouring or bronzing up fair skin tones without being too orange. Bronzer in Warm has a subtl(e) shimmer to it and is great for traditional bronzing.

If you're still uneasy about gifting Subtl, we have these amazing, digital gift cards that fit every budget!
