Yes, I’m quite aware that it’s only October—but that isn’t going to stop me from suggesting you start your holiday shopping a little early this year. Considering I usually put it off to the very last second (see: me Googling which stores are open on December 23), I’ve decided that 2019 is the year I actually get my sh*t together and plan out my gifting strategy ahead of time. And since there’s literally nobody on my list who wouldn’t be super stoked with a big ol’ box of makeup, I chose to kick things off by finding the 17 best makeup gift sets that are in stock and ready to gift someoe ASAP. Join me in becoming the best gift-giver of all damn time, whether you’re looking for you mom, friend, cousin, coworker, or, let’s be honest, yourself.

This Holographic Makeup Gift Set
Milk Makeup MVPs Set
You know your friend who’s obsessed with Euphoria makeup? Um, yeah, they’re going to seriously love this holographic makeup gift set, which is loaded with Milk’s cult-favorite highlighter, mascara, and more (all in a cute little pouch, BTW).
My favorites from the set: Milk Makeup Kush Mascara and Highlighter Mini in Blitzed.
This Mascara-Filled Makeup Gift Set
It Cosmetics IT’s Your Mascara Magic Lash-Transforming Super Duo
When you think of gifts, your mind probably jumps straight to candles or fragrances. Both are solid ideas, sure, but how often does someone really need a new perfume? Instead, make your friend eternally grateful by restocking their stash with this lash primer and ultra-volumizing mascara.
Here’s what you get: It Cosmetics Lash Blowout Volumizing Mascara and Tightline Mascara Primer.

Luxie Rose Gold Brush Collection
Why give your friend a single makeup brush when you can gift them 12 makeup brushes? Exactly. This makeup gift set (which comes with the cutest pink packaging) has got everything from fluffy powder brushes to teeny-tiny pencil brushes. It’s gifts like these that make me wish MySpace Top Friends was still a thing.
My favorites from the set: 207 Medium Angled Shading Brush and 510 Foundation Face Brush
This Mascara and Lipgloss Makeup Gift Set
Hourglass Eyes & Lips Duo
Okay, yes, your friend definitely already owns a decent lip gloss and mascara, but if you ask me, more is freaking more when it comes to makeup. They’ll be so stoked with these two essentials from Hourglass—a creamy (not sticky) lip gloss in the dreamiest pink hue, and a super-pigmented mascara that triples the length of your lashes—they won’t be mad about making a lil’ extra room for them in their makeup bag.
Here’s what you get: Caution Extreme Lash Mascara and Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss
This Full-Face Makeup Gift Set
Tarte Flawless On The Fly Color Collection
Don’t know the inventory of your friend’s makeup bag? You really can’t go wrong with this cutely curated makeup set from Tarte. Each box comes with a pretty selection of eyeshadows (both shimmery and matte hues) and a volumizing mascara, so there’s no chance anything will go unused.
