August through December tends to be the best time to purchase high-end beauty products, because you have Sephora and Beauty.com’s F&F sales, but a ton of brands also do their own – and sometimes when the brands do them they can be higher than 20%. Holidays also mean a lot of sets, palettes, and kits, which can mean value. On a big picture note, focus on quality over quantity; it’s about buying products you love and want to use all the time, whether that’s $1 or $10 product. Research and buy different colors/types of products at the drugstore to see what you like and dislike before spending a lot on something you’re not sure about!
