More ways to find out about sales & specials:
Facebook & Twitter: Follow your favorite makeup and beauty brands on Facebook and/or Twitter. You will find out about specials this way, often there are sales that may only be advertised through their FB or Twitter. For example, Too Faced has a Manic Monday deal posted every Monday on their FB. I believe these are only good for that one day, so you have to become a fan to know about them! I also follow cosmetics stores like Ulta and Sephora on FB as well as online only stores like Cherry Culture. Often this is the only way or at least the best way to find out first about sales and specials. 
Email Newsletter: Most makeup brands and stores allow you to sign up for email updates on their website. You will find out about a lot of sales and deals this way too. I always join these. 


That's all for now, I will update as I find more deals! :)
