We never 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 beauty sales this weekend are simply too 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.

Temperatures are heating up, and summer is about to be in full swing, so it’s the perfect time to refresh your beauty routine. Chances are, you will want to trade in your heavier foundations for a skin tint, indulge in new blushes, and test out bright and bold eyeliners. In the skin department, it’s 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 weekend sales so you can shop smart, restock on cult favorites, and test out some just-launched products. So keep scrolling and happy shopping.
