We never, ever in a million years need an excuse to shop for beauty products. But if you’re looking for a little nudge to hit the “add to cart” button, we have some good news: The Memorial Day sales going on this weekend are simply too freaking good to pass up. With discounts, bundles, free shipping, and more, our favorite skincare, makeup, haircare, and fragrance brands are running some *amazing* deals. And the timing couldn’t be better.
With temperatures heating up and summer about to be in full swing, it’s the perfect time to give your beauty routine a refresh. Chances are, you’re going to want to trade in your heavier foundations for a skin tint (lookin’ at you Ilia), have a little fun with the sunburnt blush trend, and test out bright and bold eyeliners. In the skin department, it’s due time to load up on sunscreen (we mean it) and opt for lightweight moisturizers. When it comes to hair? Buy your frizz-fighting hair products in bulk.
If you’re not sure where to start shopping, fear not: we’ve got you covered. Here, we rounded up the best and biggest sales of the weekend so you can shop smart, restock on cult-favorites, and test out some just-launched products. So keep scrolling and happy shopping.
