Move over chocolate, 2019 is ALL about beauty advent calendars. Yup, whilst a definite highlight of December used to be waking up to a sweet treat from our advent calendar, imagine instead, having some dreamy makeup or beauty treat every day? Have we got your attention? This year, we're expecting all our favourite beauty names from Jo Malone to Charlotte Tilbury and MAC to ASOS, to haul out their ever-popular calendars in the countdown to Christmas. Ranging from small bottles of perfume to little pots of makeup, and fancy face creams to dreamy hair products, there's pretty much something for everyone.

Now we've got the hard task of deciding which one to go for, and more importantly, who to ask. Kicking things off this year are Charlotte Tilbury, Harrods and Net-A-Porter...Feast your eyes, people.

Bareminerals, £79

Makeup lovers rejoice, this box of beauty treats has everything you could ever need to craft your face into party ready perfection. All the brand's best sellers are inside: Complexion Rescue Defense, Prime Time, BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick, Lash Domination Mascara, the list goes on and on. Plus, it's a relatively affordable £79, but is worth £218 - so, essentially it's a steal.

The Beauty Advent Calendar is available to buy online and in store on September 13th. www.bareminerals.co.uk

Jo Loves, £300

There's not much more we want from our Christmas than excessive candles and fragrances, I mean, that's what it's all about, right? Right. Feast your eyes on this absolute dream boat from Jo Loves - undoubtedly the only thing you'll need this year. Worth a jaw dropping £450 - thankfully, it'll only set you back £300 - it holds 24-deluxe mini products, including their iconic Pomelo scent, and a full-sized Christmas Trees Home Candle awaits for you on the 25th. Heaven.

CultBeauty has just announced their first ever advent calendar - and they aren't playing around with this launch... Yup, the beauty retailer has raised the bar for the best advent calendar of 2019, seriously. With products from the likes of Natasha Denona, NudeStix, NARS, Milk Makeup, Drunk Elephant, Augustinus Bader, Too Faced... I could go on an on, but you get the point, it's in-cred-ible. Not only does the calendar contain over £680 worth of products, but inside one lucky calendar is a golden ticket worth £1000 to spend on CultBeauty products. I'm floored.
