Christmas has come early this year. (Like, before Halloween early.) Sephora's Beauty Insider Holiday Sale starts today, making it the perfect time—dare we say, the most wonderful time of the year?—to stock up on beauty must-haves, like a moody hued lipstick for your winter wedding or holiday beauty gift sets for all your bridesmaids. Here's everything you need to know to save big on beauty.
According to TrendMood, From October 26 through October 29 and November 2 through November 5, Sephora shoppers who have achieved VIB Rouge status (that's those dedicated beauty mavens who spend at least $1,000 a year) can score 20 percent off all purchases in stores and online with the code ROUGEBONUS. Sephora VIB members (those who spend a yearly minimum of $350) will later get to join in on the savings from November 9 through November 12, when they can also claim 20 percent off with the code VIBBONUS. Finally, from November 16 through November 19, Beauty Insiders (that's anyone signed up for Sephora's loyalty program) will receive a 15 percent discount with the code BIBONUS. We'd usually have to wait until Black Friday for a deal as good as this!
So what should you snag at the massive Sephora sale? Why not grab everything you need for your winter wedding beauty look? We're talking dark and dramatic nail polish, warm-hued lipstick, and moisturizing skincare products to combat any dry winter skin. With the holidays quickly approaching, you might also want to pick up some gifts for your bridesmaids or future mother-in-law. Scroll on to see what all brides should buy at Sephora's Beauty Insider Holiday Sale.
