Gifting makeup to a beauty lover is practically a no-brainer. But while refills of their favourite palettes, lippies and concealer isn’t a bad idea, it can be a bit of a gamble — which is why limited-edition makeup gift sets always win in the present department.
Not only are the holidays the best time of year to get your hands on new and exclusive beauty bundles and limited-edition releases, but you also score big on value — it's truly the ultimate buy-more-save-more deal. Plus, they often come beautifully wrapped in festive packaging, so additional gift wrapping isn't required.
This year's makeup gift sets are bigger and better than ever with specially curated lip kits, brushes and tools, complexion perfectors and eyeshadow and mascara duos and so much more. To help you get ahead of your holiday shopping, below, we've rounded up the best makeup gift sets of 2020. They’re so good you might want to add one to your cart for yourself, too!
