SAVING MONEY on MAKEUP: Part 2- Discount Codes!

Hi there makeup lovers,

This is the next instalment in my SAVING MONEY on MAKEUP series! You can catch the first part here! So I'm here today to bring you some more tips that will hopefully save you a few more bucks when purchasing your next lot of makeup to feed that addiction!  So, get a snack and a cup of tea and prepare to do some online shopping after reading these tips!

Today we're talking about DISCOUNT CODES! Ok, you may be sitting here thinking well thatS obvious, but if you want to save all the money you can, then it is really important to take full advantages of offers like this! It'll save you bundles! 

Now, there are several different ways in which you can go about getting yourself some discount codes. Of course, these discount codes will only be applicable online, I would therefore advise you to go into stores and check out the product before buying it (especially if it's a product that needs colour matching, such as foundation or concealer), or at least look up some reviews online to see if the product is worth the money! So here are my tips:

1- Firstly, beauty gurus are a great source of discount codes! A great deal of their job is to advertise products for different companies. Companies often send products to makeup gurus to advertise on their channel if they so wish, and give the gurus coupon codes for their viewers to get money off of products! Now, I'm not one to begrudge beauty gurus opportunitues such as them getting sent products or getting sponsored to make videos- this is their job, why shouldn't they get paid? Plus most of the money goes back into makeup for their channel anyway, but that's a whole different post. If you don't support beauty gurus getting sent products or getting commission, just don't use this tip. Scroll down for others!

So the key is to hit Youtube, then in many of the description bars of the videos of many famous Youtubers, there will be discount codes for companies such as Sigma, Morphe Brushes, Gerard Cosmetics, Velour Lashes and many more! 

Plus, while you're there, check out some of the awesome talent on Youtube! Some of the girls and guys on there are amazing, their videos helped me get through some tough times. I have learned so much from Youtube videos, it's amazing! It's a makeup course in the comfort of your own home! Their makeup talent coupled with the awesome personalities make for some great entertainment! My favourite gurus include: Young Wild and Polished, Kathleen Lights, Jaclyn Hill, Thebeautyvaultxo, XxSarahNicolexx, Shaanxo, NikkieTutorials, Mannymua and more!

I have my own discount code with the Born Pretty Store! 

2- Often, registering with different companies will earn you some money off! When you go onto a website, often, a pop up will ask you to enter your email address, which will mean you'll receive the latest updates from the company. Sometimes, this also means a welcome discount! For example, I recently signed up with Too Faced and got 20% off my next order for the next week! It's always worth doing some research on the company that you are looking to buy from before making your order- if they give you a time limit, then you want to make sure you make your order during this time. You can always unsubsribe from most emails afterwards if you don't like them spamming your inbox. I, however, love updates on the latest products and promotions! Some of these emails might notify you of sales, which means money off of your next order as well! 

3- Google it! It's always worth googling the brand followed by the words 'discount code' before placing your order. Various sites have catalogues of discount codes that you can access for free! Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. But it's always worth the check! 

So there you have it! Discount codes can be your best friend! Always look out for them! Stay tuned for more money saving tips with the next instalment in the series. I will also have some reviews of products from for your guys! If you purchase anything, don't forget to use my coupon code SZH10 for 10% off their already amazingly affordable prices! 

Happy money saving!!

Love you guys,
Starrzbeauty xoxo
