All of these makeup gift sets and products are cruelty-free and from some of my favorite brands like Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley and Tata Harper. I’ve chosen these as the best makeup gifts 2023 as these sets are perfect for sharing my favorite beauty brands with others. As well as trying new makeup, skincare and beauty products as they’re always so beautifully packaged and better value than paying for each thing individually.
Like most people I prefer giving to receiving gifts and Christmas and the holiday season is my favorite time of the year. To make it easy to find the beauty gift set and presents you’re looking for I’ve put them into 2 categories.

Some are individual beauty products and not makeup gift sets, like the Glow Screen which was my top beauty product find a couple of years ago. So if you’re going on a Winter beach escape stock up on this SPF & primer in one that leaves skin flawless and glowing.
I also always have cruelty-free eyeshadow palettes on my Santa list as they’re such a good size for traveling with. The ones in this edit have the most stunning neutral shimmering eyeshadow shades. I’ve also included my vegan lip liner, as I wouldn’t sell it if I didn’t think it was the best and I love that it’s vegan and self-sharpening.

The makeup gift sets for 2023 I’ll be gifting. I use a lot of Charlotte Tilbury makeup products, her foundation is my favorite, so there’s a few from her line here. As well as some hydrating clear plumping gloss and skincare mini fridge if you’re worried about getting the color wrong. I also snuck a couple of candles in here as well. Since I love burning candles when I’m doing my makeup. It makes it more relaxing.

Urban Decay has a beautiful festive eye makeup gift set with a setting spray. The highly pigmented sparkly shades would be beautiful for creating their look on New Years. I have the Grande Lash gift set on my Santa list this year as their cruelty-free lash serum really does work wonders. It’s also a lot more affordable than some other brands. I’ve also added some of my favorite skincare sets from Sunday Riley and Tata Harper. They’re such a great way to try a new brand without buying everything full size.
More holiday gift guides 2023
I definitely recommend shopping early for holiday gifts this year as there’s so many supply chain issues. I’ve created lots of different gift guides for men, women and couples. From various stores and brands from makeup, beauty and skincare sets to home to tech and fashion. I’ve tried to include something for everyone and hope that you find a gift they’ll love.
*Christmas tree fairy: I don’t know if anyone else has this tradition or if it’s just something cute my Mum does. On Boxing Day (December 26th) the Christmas Tree fairy always leaves little gifts in the Christmas tree for us to open the day after Christmas. It’s a cute and fun tradition we’ve always done that keeps Christmas going a bit longer.
