Whether the recipient already has a bulging makeup bag and stacks of product-filled Muji storage or prefers a quick slick of lipstick and the occasional swipe of mascara, a makeup gift set is a bit of a no-brainer for any beauty-interested friend or relative.
Find the perfect one, and it will either restock the products they've already come to know and love or it will introduce them to a cluster of beauty buys they have yet to try. And even better still, quite often when brands group together their hero products in these makeup sets, they cost less than if you bought each item individually. In short, they can make you look generous without you having to spend that much at all.
