The proliferation of beauty advent calendars may well be one of our favourite things about December these days - just click here for our shoppable guide to the best out there - but there's one that really takes the (Christmas) cake and, obviously, it belongs to Net-a-Porter.
There was only one make-up artist out there of adequate standing who could help us delve through its luxury-stuffed drawers; Toni Malt. The German-born, Dubai-based artist not only works with the best of the best (she's Chanel's go-to girl, fancy), but Toni also recently opened her make-up academy in Al Quoz to much fanfare, and released an incredible book with prestigious publisher Assouline, Transform: 1 Model 60 Looks. We wrote about it here, and you can now buy it in the newly opened Assouline in The Dubai Mall.
But on to the drawers, we know you can't wait any longer...
Replete with 25 days of beauty bits (and 25 days of squealing, if it lands in our household), Net-a-Porter's beauty advent calendar costs Dhs589 (buy it here) and is quite possibly the best and most exciting way of counting down to Christmas Day.
Filled with smaller (but, it must be noted, not small) versions of NAP's beauty bestsellers, you can expect goodies from Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley, Oribe, Omorovicza, Le Labo, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Eyeko Hourglass and SACHAJUAN.
