Our guide to our top luxurious beauty advent calendars this year

Celebrity makeup artists, makeup aficionados and supermodels across the globe have an almost cult-like following that turns on its head each year, when it comes to advent calendars. While you’ll see long-standing collaborations between brands and influencers rolling around all month long, some more unusual collaborations this year like Andy Murray, Nicola Formichetti and Urban Decay reprising their late-2017 action show, Grunge Girls, are trending to make a statement with their calendar.

Whether you like to shop for beauty advent calendars with big name names or you prefer a more lower-key (yet equally decadent) recipe for beauty advent, here are some of the best tips, tricks and guide to the best luxury – and downright decadent – products to find yourself in the festive mood with.

A fragrance at the core, this limited edition palette is a fan favourite with makeup artists, both here and in the UK.

Whilst it’s a known fact that the makeup brand tends to give fans what they want, it seems the Urban Decay team has brought their 2017 box back for a second time, by including a few of their notable fan favourites and a revamped version of the metallic Temptress brand.
