as a makeup artist, I buy a lot of makeup...like a lot of makeup haha. over the years, I've learned some pretty cool tips and tricks for saving money on cosmetics, so I wanted to share them with you!
join store reward programs
rewards programs are typically free and easy to sign up for. signing up gives you deals and coupons that are only available through the program. I love Ulta's reward program, since you get points for every purchase you make. The more you spend, the more points you get, and the more money you can redeem as a discount :)
download store apps
did you know stores often offer secret coupons through their app? another tip is to turn on post notifications for flash sales and offers!
plan out store events
Ulta and Sephora offer designated days and weeks of sales. For example Ulta has 21 Days of Beauty (each day a popular product's price drops) check their calendar ahead of the sales!
buy from the company rather than a store
buying from a brand directly can be cheaper than buying from a store that offers several brands of cosmetics, especially during sales.
follow brands and stores on instagram
similar to stores having secret coupons on their app, a lot of companies also post secret discounts on their social media sites ;)
I know it's hard to wait, but if you want the best deal on your favorite product, you may have to wait awhile for a sale or coupon
once you have found the best deal on your product, stock up! This way you never have to buy your favorite products full priced :)
