Because you can never have enough makeup, skincare products or perfume.

Christmas is almost here, so it's officially time to pick out an annual advent calendar. And sure, you can stick to tradition and count down to Christmas by eating teeny-tiny Santa chocolates or sipping on mini bottles of booze (okay, we can still get behind wine advent calendars), but if you really want to treat yourself (or whoever else you're shopping for) this December, go with one of these beauty advent calendars instead.

Tucked inside these advent calendars, you'll find the very best in makeup, skincare and perfume from leading brands like NYX, Benefit and IT Cosmetics. Some go all-out on one type of product (OPI's advent calendar comes with 25 mini nail polishes), while others give you a balanced mix of travel- and full-size products from Glossybox, Sephora, Ulta and other top retailers, tackling different needs, skin types, complexions and just about everything else.

So, maybe you're looking for an excuse to try out new products without splurging on a perfume or makeup gift set. Or perhaps, you simply want to restock her collection with products she uses daily. Either way, you're sure to find something on this list to make any beauty-obsessed heart happy this holiday.
