We're having our second blog sale this Saturday and I wanted to share some pointers that will hopefully allow you to make the most of it. Blog sales are huge in the YouTube beauty community because make-up lovers have the chance to purchase products they were lusting after or just wanted to try, for a fraction of the original price. Items in blog sales are either never used, only swatched or slightly used. (All used items will be sanitized but we always encourage to re-sanitize them for your peace of mind). Usually this is all an online transaction but Moden Makeup is bringing this experience to you in person. This time we're teaming up with Miss B's Beauty so customers have even more options.
Here's how I would capitalise at a blog sale:
1. Get there early.
Stock is usually limited.
2. Have an idea of the kind of items you're looking for.
Best not to walk in blind. For instance, if nail polish is your weakness check those out first. This tip would help especially if you've set a budget for this spending expedition.
Speaking of nail polish, check out my keek where I show some of the polishes that will be on sale. Spend $40 in nail polish to receive a free mini CND Solar Oil (while supplies last).
3. Look for rarity.
The internet has spoiled us (damn you Sephora!) and sadly many brands aren't available in Barbados. Couple that with the high import duties and we're in make-up depression. Discontinued, limited edition and items from normally inaccessible brands tend to pop up at blog sales. For example, one of my favourite brands is Laura Mercier. If this was sold in Barbados...I don't even wanna finish the thought.
This 1 oz primer is $19.50 USD from Sephora. I'm selling it for $45 BDS (new)

4. Bundle and save.
I'm sure most people wouldn't mind knocking a couple dollars off if they see you going h.a.m at their sale. I know I won't.
See you on Saturday!
