These Makeup-Filled Advent Calendars Are the Reason For the Season
If you grew up in a household that abided by the Advent calendar every holiday season, you'll remember full well the excitement of opening up a piece of chocolate each day until the big day where all the presents were unloaded. The same idea still applies with beauty versions—instead of breaking your "good" streak with daily chocolate, you'll find makeup, skincare, body lotions, and more hiding behind each door.
Even if you're not observing Advent, it's a fun and creative way to replenish your makeup bag. Here, we rounded up 7 beauty-themed Advent calendars filled to the brim with makeup minis.
