Good Morning Ladies,
That time of the year is finally here!! The 21 Days of Beauty! I love these sales, there are so many savings in store for you. Shop in bulk if you can, watch expiration dates and have fun it’s MAKEUP!
Makeup has always been a creative outlet for me. I have been experimenting with makeup since I was 10 years old. My sister would let me do her hair and makeup for dances, and eventually her wedding. Her friends then requested my help and I absolutely enjoyed it.
I shopped Ulta for the first time when I was prepping for my wedding. Before Ulta, I was an Avon Addict. After my Ulta visit, I became a benefit addict and it just exploded from there. Now that I have converted to a Cruelty-Free makeup routine I am obsessed with CoverFX and Tarte. I love that Ulta has drugstore options as well as high-end options.
How to shop the sale
I make a list of the items I know I love and want to stock up on. Things that I will go through quickly and would like to buy at the discounted prices.
I then add up the total of each brand, a lot of Ulta sales come with a free gift if you hit a certain amount and I mark those with a star so I know if I hit that price requirement.
I research the items I want to try. Are they cruelty-free, or are the reviews good on that product? If you are really unsure go to the store and try it. You do risk missing out on the item because they do sell out quickly. If you want to risk it and just buy it do it. These sales are amazing!
Have fun! Makeup is supposed to be fun!
