If you’ve been contemplating a makeup bag overhaul or a skincare revamp, I have *really* good news: Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Sale (opens in new tab) is in full swing, which means there’s quite literally no better time to shop. If you’re unfamiliar with the bi-annual promotion, allow me to give you a crash course. Over the next three weeks, Ulta, being the giving retailer that they are, surprises shoppers with 50 percent off (!!!) their best sellers. There’s a catch, though. The sale moves quickly—products only go and stay on sale for 24 hours. It’s a never-ending rotation of fivestar beauty buys, but planning ahead is key. 

To help streamline your shopping journey, I’ve done the hard work for you. I’ve scanned the bargains, investigated the products, and selected the deals you won’t want to miss. To kick things off, I've rounded up the best products to shop this weekend. Make sure to check back in, because I’ll be updating this guide with my favorite items, every week, through the end of the month. (FYI: Full prices are listed below, but each product will be 50 percent off on their assigned day.)
