Beauty addict or not, with looser purse strings, there is so much you can give away from the beauty department this Yuletide season. Be the beauty fairy godmother to your family and friends by giving them presents that they can really use. Just be careful, especially when gifting scents or face bases because unlike a shirt or a shoe that they can have replaced if it doesn't fit, a used foundation will wallow in shame and dust if you don't get the perfect fit. Our advice? If you want to give makeup, opt for the one they are already using. If it's a bit of snooping you need to get the job done, then go ahead, it's for a good cause anyway.
