While some people may call things like mascara or foundation more of a "want" than a "need," as a beauty-lover, I place it firmly in the camp of things I want but also need to feel my best. Sure, going without makeup is not the same as neglecting my dry hair or stepping out without sunscreen, but in these challenging times, just swiping something on can do wonders for a glum mood (and I'm taking all the small wins I can get). I've also been using this time to experiment on the parts of my face that aren't covered by a mask, so when I learned of Sephora's new August Welcome Back Celebration Offer, I considered it a sign and started preparing my cart.
From Aug. 14 to 23, all Beauty Insiders can knock $15 off $75 purchases and $20 off $100 purchases by adding the promo code WELCOMEBACK at checkout. Because I categorize my makeup routine according to whether I want to play up my eyes for a socially distanced dinner out or keep it low key during the day with a no-makeup makeup look, I broke down two ways I'd shop the Welcome Back sale in case you do the same.
Now, I haven't yet decided which I'll ultimately pick, but while this promotion is limited to a one-time use online, there's unlimited use in store . . . so I may just head down to my local Sephora and end up doing both. Check out the products I'd use for both occasions ahead.
