Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Best Beauty Buys


Happy Friday Friends!  Yesterday was a big day – the beginning of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access.  In other words, if you are a Nordstrom cardholder, you can shop a week before everyone else and scoop up all of the good stuff before it sells out.  There are so many beautiful things in the sale this year, but I decided to focus on  best beauty buys, since this is a beauty blog.  These are my picks of things that I use, know and love.  This is the time to stock up on some product favorites, since they offer many larger value sizes during this sale only, or to try something new, since a lot of sets with smaller products sizer are also a big part of the sale.  Let me know, what you are purchasing and if you have any questions, leave them below and I will answer them.
