Beauty: Ways To Save Money Shopping For Make-up

If you’re reading this blog post you’re probably a bit of a beauty addict or just a shopping addict in general! I think that everyone has different tips/ways of saving money and so I thought I’d share some of mine with you all today especially when it comes to shopping for beauty products! The idea for this post came from the fact I have a new purse… isn’t it amazing?! It’s from Radley.


Make sure you have all the loyalty cards
Make sure you sign up to all points cards you never know when they’ll come in handy! My favourite points card to use is my Boots Advantage Card but I’d also recommend signing up to Superdrug's Beauty Card and the Debenhams Beauty Card. They regularly have point bonuses and special offers to build up your points. My favourite card to use is my Boots one as it has an app with extra offers on which you can load onto your card and earn even more points for your cash!
Sign up to the relevant newsletters
Newsletters may be seriously annoying but at times they can come in seriously handy. I’ve saved money before thanks to being signed up to the Look Fantastic newsletter as they always seem to offer a discount code and the Superdrug newsletter is really good too.
Sign up to Quidco
Sometimes I forget to use Quidco but whenever I can I make my purchases through the site to get cashback on my purchases. I wouldn’t recommend using this method all the time as not all transactions get ‘tracked’ but I’ve saved money on Feel Unique  and Cult Beauty orders using Quidco but it can take anywhere up to 6 months to get the cashback as the process is quite slow! But since signing up to Quidco last year, I’ve earnt about £20 cashback so every little helps.

Make sure you use voucher codes sites
When you’re shopping online, always make sure you open another tab and search for discount codes for the store you’re shopping at. I’ve saved 20%, 15% and sometimes 25% off an order from doing this. Even if it’s just a free delivery code, it’s always worth double-checking and it only takes a minute longer to make the search. I’d recommend using Voucher Codes or Voucher Cloud for great deals.
Refer a Friend & Subscribe and Save
These are a great way of promoting a good deal as you’ll get something back in return. Feel Unique have a ‘refer a friend’ service which helps you save money on your next shop… bare in mind you could help me out and save 15% off your next shop at Feel Unique by clicking this link.
Feel Unique also have an option where you can get 10% off a brand for life (mines Urban Decay I think!) and Look Fantastic have a great refer a friend service too.


Student Discounts
Are you still a student? Save a few pennies by signing up to an NUS extra card or UNIDAYS. Most sites offer 10% off but there are certain periods (normally near student loan day) were this can increase to 20% and sometimes even more than that! Make sure when you’re about to leave university you get a three year NUS card (like myself) to make sure you can keep saving when you’re a graduate with absolutely no money to your name!
