Who doesn’t love getting free makeup?! There are few things that give you the same warm, fuzzy feeling that receiving a free makeup gift gives you. Whether a makeup artist is applying free makeup to your face in a store or at a makeup counter, or you find a free makeup sample in a catalog, or you receive a free makeup item with a purchase or as a reward when shopping at your favorite store, getting free makeup is just so much fun! Want to get more free makeup? Read on to find out how to get all the free makeup you possibly can! You’ll feel like you’re stealing with these tips, but don’t worry, they won’t be calling the police on you for these!
How to get free makeup at stores!
First off, when you find a makeup brand or store that you like, go ahead and get the loyalty card that they offer. For example, if you buy a lot of your products at Ulta, get the Ulta card! I recommend getting the loyalty cards to your favorite makeup brands and stores because they all offer certain benefits and point systems, which can earn you free makeup after you make enough purchases. Also, since I own a Sephora card as well, I got a free gift on my birthday! I went into my local Sephora store the month of my birthday, not knowing about their birthday gift program, but when I went to check out, I received 3 lipsticks and a little eyeshadow compact for free! It was so nice to get a little bonus, especially for my birthday! Make sure you register for your membership at all of the store that you buy your makeup from so that you receive all of the little bonuses they give you. Even today, when I was checking out at the Sephora store (I bought a new Beautyblender!! It’s so cute!), the girl behind the counter told me that I had enough points for a free makeup gift! I had several great items to choose from, and I honestly may have gotten too excited about it, but it was really fun to pick out my own free makeup gift and it made me feel better about my purchase in general. 😉 The good thing about membership cards is that for stores like Ulta and Sephora, is that they do not charge a fee like some stores do, and it is not a credit card! It’s easy to get yourself into trouble when you get store cards that act as credit cards, but a simple membership card to one of these stores only keeps track of your points, so you don’t have to worry about interest and bills catching up with you later!
When you subscribe to emails from your favorite makeup stores, makeup brands, and beauty supplies stores, you will be surprised at the amount of free makeup that you can stock up on! I love receiving my emails from my favorite makeup brands and stores, because I get ideas, add new items to my (never ending) wish list, and of course, get notified when I have a chance to claim some free makeup!! Sometimes, companies will send out an email to their loyal, subscribing customers, that includes secret sales, and my favorite, free samples and free makeup products available either online or in the store! You can get coupons to use in the stores, and sometimes you can get free makeup just by showing the associates behind the counter your email. You don’t even have to make a purchase!
We can all agree that getting free makeup is fun, and it really is a special little treat that can change your whole mood. I always enjoy the free products just a bit more, because I feel like it’s a little present just for me, and I never have to worry about buyer’s remorse! Sign up for emails, get membership cards, and never be afraid to ask the associates in makeup stores for samples, or if there are any free gift deals going on so that you’re not missing out on any opportunities for receiving free makeup! You’ll thank me later, I promise.
Have fun playing up your features, beauties!
