List Rules Vote up the calendar you hope Santa brings you this year.

‘Tis the season of giving but if we’re being honest, we’re probably gifting these beauty Advent calendars to ourselves.

The Advent calendar craze started way back in the 19th century as a way to count down to the days of the Advent season - the 24-day period before Christmas. The calendar was reinvented in more recent years as a box featuring 24 “doors” or “windows” that open to reveal a chocolate or sweet treat. Today, there are even Advent calendars with makeup. 

Rounded up below are the best advent calendars for guys and girls who love all things beauty, including an over-the-top, extravagant set from Dior Beauty and babe-on-a-budget sets from Target, NastyGal, and more. There are many makeup deals for the holiday season but these ones stand out spectacularly.
