10 beauty staples that are currently on sale (because who doesn’t love a bargain?)

Niamh McClelland

It may not seem like it today, but we are actually edging ever closer to summer.

And in the same way many of us tend to do an inventory of our wardrobes at this time of the year, many of us also take it as an opportunity to survey the contents of our make up bags and do a fairly swift reshuffle of the products within.

It must be noted that many of us then experience an all-consuming urge to fill our beauty bags with brand new products which we may or may not need – sue us.

After chucking some dated items, running out of old favourites or relegating heavier products to your winter collection, your beauty bag is generally in need of a little replenishment – that’s just a fact.

And how convenient is it that so many make-up must-haves are currently on sale right now? Very convenient. But listen, we don’t make the rules guys.

From classic Benefit products to much-loved gems from Charlotte Tilbury, online retailers are your new saviour if you’re currently in need of a little boost in the beauty department.

Let’s take a look at just some of the products your beauty bag is simply incomplete without.
