The Best Beauty Deals to Shop at Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale 2020: Skin Care & Makeup
The trees have been lit, presents opened, and stomachs stuffed, but the fun’s not over yet because our favorite retailers are hosting huge after-Christmas sales — and Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale is one of the sales you can’t miss.
The shopping giant always has a robust beauty sale selection we’re constantly scoping out, but there’s even more to browse (and drool over) between now and January 3, and deeper discounts of up to 50 percent to boot. In case you didn’t get the presents you were wishing and hoping for, who else buys better gifts for you than, well, yourself? Fan-favorite brands like Muad, MAC, and T3 are serving up last-minute deals on their holiday gift sets and so much more.
The post-Christmas to New Years’ spell is a great time to snap up beauty essentials — without the frenzy associated with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. So plant yourself on the couch, heat up a mug of hot cocoa, and start shopping with these epic picks.
Murad, Estee Lauder, and It Cosmetics are just a few of the brands you’ll find on sale for the big event. If you haven’t already, swap out your lighter moisturizers for richer creams, like the Confidence in a Cream Hydrating Moisturizer to combat the dry winter air that’s probably irritating your skin both indoors and outdoors. Add in a hydrating serum as well, like Shiseido’s Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate Serum, so you can say goodbye to redness and flakiness once and for all.
Nordstrom’s makeup selection is a force to be reckoned with. Filled with top-tier brands like MAC, Nars, Charlotte Tilbury, and Chanel, you’ll find a hard time not completely filling up your virtual cart with new lip glosses, eye shadows, and nail polishes to doll yourself up in. There are plenty of classics to stock up on as well, like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil, which is an Allure editor favorite.
Indulge in intensely hydrating treatments this essentials set from Oribe, or splurge on a fancy tool like the T3 Featherweight Folding Compact Hair Dryer to keep your hair looking flawless and selfie-ready into the new year. Your bathroom has essentially turned into a salon anyway, so you might as well make sure it’s fully stocked with everything you need for the perfect blowout or hair-dying experiment.
Whether you haven’t gone a day without wearing fragrance (despite being indoors most of the year) or prefer to light up a candle while working, there are plenty of sweet-smelling scents on sale to choose from. Invest in a classic like Angel by Mugler, or try something more out of your comfort zone, such as Aydry & Co.’s Japanese Yuzu Scented Candle, to surprise your senses.
Believe us when we say there’s so much more on sale, so scoot on over to nordstrom.com to browse the vast land of after-Christmas beauty discounts.
