Beauty advent calendars that will make your Christmas countdown extra chic

From luxury to bargain buys, these favourites always sell out fast.

Summer is officially here, and you know what that means – advent calendar season has kicked into high gear!

Beauty advent calendars in particular are always a winner. Because who doesn’t love opening a beauty gift every single day for 25 days straight? You never know what you’re going to get, but one thing’s for sure – it’s bound to be something awesome like a liquid eyeshadow, mascara, face primer, or maybe even something like a cult-favourite hair tool.

So, if you (or someone you’re shopping for) is a beauty lover who’s obsessed with all things skincare and makeup, you’ll want to get in now and secure your advent calendar because if we’ve learnt anything from previous years, these things sell out like hot cakes.

What are the best beauty advent calendars in Australia for 2023?

Below, we’ve rounded up the best beauty advent calendars to shop this Christmas.

Make sure to check back regularly, as we’ll be updating our list as the launches roll in.
