You probably have a friend or co-worker or cousin (you get my drift) who is constantly talking about their YouTube channel; correction: their hypothetical YouTube channel. And since you’re such a supportive friend, you encourage them to do it because either A) they’re actually an under-the-radar makeup maestro or B) they have plenty ambition but still have some um, well, growing, to do in the skills department. Either way, we’d like to assume they would be obsessed with this year’s best holiday makeup.

When it comes to gifting a budding beauty guru who lives and breathes makeup, snagging any ol’ lipstick or highlighter is not going to cut it. Think about it, they already have dozens of lipsticks, countless eyeshadow palettes and let’s not even begin to talk about the mascara collection they’ve probably accrued. Thankfully, that’s where we come in. We know holiday shopping can be super overwhelming with hundreds of giftable sets on shelves. And if you don’t have a plan, you can feel defeated before you even walk into the store (or click on the website). So to make your life a bit easier and keep the season of gift-giving light and airy, we rounded up the must-have, top-notch, best-on-the-market makeup finds this holiday season has to offer.

We’re talking limited-edition palettes, best-selling glow getters and get this…a year’s worth of great sex (more on that below). Keep scrolling to see our top 40 makeup gifts for this year’s holiday shopping. Because this year, we don’t plan on being that person frantically shopping on Christmas Eve. Can I get an amen?!
