It’s easy to have a fun and exciting summer on a budget. Just follow these money-saving tips.
Get a Makeover
The next time you’re making your regular makeup purchase at MAC, stick around for a makeover. MAC provides make-up applications for customers by appointment, with a $50 purchase minimum. You can choose from a variety of looks in their makeup look book, or tell the makeup artist exactly what you want. Schedule your trip to MAC right before a night out on the town to get a flawless face for a flawless evening.
Get a Free Alteration
How many times have you gone into the fitting room with too many items to carry, yet come back out with nothing, because nothing seemed to fit correctly? If you shop at Nordstrom you never have to leave empty-handed again, because the department store offers free alterations on all Nordstrom items purchased at full-price.
Get a Low-Priced, High-Quality Hair Style
Beauty schools offer discounted hair cuts, color and styles, because the stylists are currently working towards receiving their cosmetology licenses. During non-school hours, take a trip to the Paul Mitchell School (a press and curl is only $20). Enjoy the trendy ambiance and the unique hairstyles of the student stylists.
Go to the Alleys
At the Alleys, located in downtown Los Angeles, near the fashion district, you’ll find great deals on shoes, accessories and clothing, for men and women. In fact, many of the shop owners purchase items from the same wholesalers as stores such as Forever 21, Charolette Russe, etc.
