Whether you're shopping for the teenager who's been caught rifling through your cosmetic bag one too many times or you're hoping to find a present to show your girlfriend that you support her interests, take a look at these makeup gift sets from top brands like Fenty Beauty, Glossier, and Bobbi Brown. Although makeup typically isn't very wallet-friendly, most of these perfectly-curated makeup sets come with mini versions of best-selling, award-winning beauty products at much lower prices ($30 and under). This way, your gift recipient can test out the latest and greatest beauty products before committing to a full-size product.

There's something for every beauty lover on this list, whether they prefer something more natural, dramatic, or a mix of the two. These makeup kits feature dozens of lip colors, gorgeous highlighters and blushes, brow essentials, and too many eyeshadow palettes to count. Some gift sets focus on a particular area of the face (lips, eyes, or brows, for example), while others are packaged like a variety pack with enough products to complete any day-to-day look. Keep in mind that most of these picks are only available for the holiday season, so get 'em before they're gone! And hey, you might as well restock your makeup collection while you're at it...
