These July 4 Beauty Sales Are So Good, You'll Want to Skip Your Cookout and Shop
Since shopping is a beloved American pastime, it's just as logical as a way to celebrate July 4 as fireworks and barbecues. As we enter the height of Summer beauty season, it's time to put your best face (and hair and tan and skin) forward. From affordable Ulta offerings to Net-a-Porter splurges, these are the sales you simply cannot miss. The best part? These deals are all in effect now, so you can get in on them even if you plan to unplug on the actual Fourth.
Bliss, indeed — use code FIREWORKS to save 30 percent on some of the brand's standouts from its Firm, Baby, Firm collection. The Moisturizing Gel-Cream ($25, originally $62) is potent enough to banish fine lines and wrinkles but lightweight and wearable on even the most humid Summer days.
Jennifer Behr's romantic creations have graced the heads of Janelle Monáe, Chrissy Teigen, Mandy Moore, and maybe you, now that her wedding-worthy Painted Lilacs Headband ($300, originally $518) graces the Anthropologie Summer sale. No code is necessary to score up to 50 percent off indie brand offerings like Wander Beauty, Pinch Provisions, and Susanne Kaufmann.
Chock-full of splashy makeup bags from designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, and Globe-Trotter, the Net-a-Porter sale is enough to make you book a vacation ASAP. This whimsical Dolce & Gabbana Marigold Printed Shell Cosmetics Case ($188, originally $375) is the perfect bundle for all of your July 4 Summer beauty steals.
Put the (electric) blue in red, white, and blue with a Kylie Jenner-esque Bubblegum Blue Faux Wig ($9, originally $23). More rave-ready looks can be obtained through discounted Rimmel Instant Tan Lotion and NYX Matte Lipstick.
Let your pout match your one-piece with Mara Hoffman for Kaleidescape Tinted Lip Balm ($11, originally $18). More marked-down lipsticks from Kat Von D, Urban Decay, and Make Up For Ever round out this sale.
While you patiently wait for the brand’s blowout anniversary sale later in July, hold yourself over with an option like Kevyn Aucoin Beauty The Eyeshadow Duo ($29, originally $42). Since Nordstom's sale is primarily (very cute!) cosmetics bags, this is one of the only makeup offerings available.
Three Stila Bright & Bold Stay All Day Lipsticks ($16, originally $20) are better than one, especially when you can get them for a fraction of the price. They're fully matte but seemingly weightless in a palette that's as colorful as the season. Since Revolve's beauty shop is somewhat new, this is an exciting chance to snag a rare sale.
Bath & Body Works
July 4 just might be the best day of the year for Bath & Body Works shoppers. You can score 75 percent off of the brand's signature collection, which includes Oahu Coconut Sunset Shower Gel ($4, originally $12). It doesn't stop there: select three-wick candles, specialty body care, and hand soaps are 50 percent off.
Affordable luxury just got even cheaper. You can get 15 percent off select Josie Maran products with the code LIBERTY. This Whipped Mud Mask Argan Hydrating and Detoxifying Treatment in Juicy Mango ($40, originally $48) is limited edition. This well-rounded sale includes everything from mascara to blush to argan oil.
No furrowed brows are necessary to enjoy 35 percent off all things Laura Geller with code 35SUMMER. Nab this Brow Sculpting Palette ($19, originally $29), and you'll have money left over for a few extra products, which include affordable lip kits and palettes.
Buy two Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven 2-in-1 Charcoal Masque ($2) and get the third free, so you don't have to choose between your two besties for a sheet mask and movie night. Moms will also appreciate how SoCozy products and Ulta hand soaps are also buy one, get one.
