So excited to share my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks with you today! I’ve received a lot of feedback from readers that are hesitant to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 because they’re pregnant, in the middle of a weight loss journey, etc. But, there are tons of great NSALE 2018 deals to be had on items other than clothes! Let’s check out the top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 beauty picks right now, shall we?
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks – Top NSALE 2018 Makeup Picks
The biggest makeup trends of fall 2018 that I’m seeing on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are the continuation of neutral eye looks and blushes with a hint of pink. While a few palettes include some brighter options, the majority of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 beauty picks contain neutral eyeshadows that will be perfect for creating smoky eyes.
Several brands are offering NSALE 2018 gift with purchase deals, so make sure to check the list to get the requirements and enter the promo code [if applicable] to get your extra goodies. I’ve noticed some of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 gifts with purchase are already sold out, including the one I grabbed on Day 1 of the sale. So move fast if you’re interested!
The MAC Nordy Girl Palette is one of my top sellers on this year’s NSALE. It’s available in metallic [which I chose] and matte. I had it on my first list of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 picks, and I ordered it for myself as soon as the sale opened at 2am my time. I’ve shared some MAC Nordy Girl looks on Instagram because I just love this palette so much!
I have to mention the eyeliner here, too: it glides on like a dream. No pulling your eyelids or smudging along the way. Amazing!
Anniversary Sale $45 / $202 value

Either of the MAC sets on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 would make excellent holiday gifts. I do a lot of my holiday shopping during the NSALE! Here’s another NSALE 2018 gift idea:
Anniversary Sale $75 / $112 value
There are lots of other great makeup palettes on Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks. Here’s just a few:
Too Faced Sex, Gold, and Chocolate Set [Too Faced on sale Eyeshadow, Mascara, and Primer]
Anniversary Sale $49 / $92 value
Anniversary Sale $225 / $585 value
I’d buy this next set for the blush alone. NARS blush is a cult favorite for good reason. All the eyeshadow colors are perfect for neutral fall eye looks, and the highlighter and blush would be flattering on tons of skin tones. This palette alone could get you through the rest of the year!
Anniversary Sale $49 / $131 value
Anniversary Sale $98 / $380 value
This next palette is a great example of the neutral eyeshadows I was discussing earlier. Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands, and the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion on sale that included in this kit is a huge reason why. Once I started using their eyeshadow primer, I’ve never picked up another brand. Their eyeshadows also have a ton of pigment and staying power.
Which reminds me of a little story. I was wearing Urban Decay eyeshadow and primer when I went into the hospital to give birth to Blair [my VBAC baby!]. When I was about to start pushing [after 18 hours of labor!], the nurses actually complimented me on how well my eye makeup had lasted through labor. If this stuff can last through labor, pretty sure it can last through anything.
Anniversary Sale $49 / $66 value
This next set in my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks also helps a ton with makeup staying power. Smashbox primers have such a cult following, and the NSALE 2018 is a great time to stock up!
Anniversary Sale $35 / $68 value
This Lancome mascara on sale set has been one of my best-selling NSALE 2018 items since day 1 of the sale. Lancome mascara is my personal favorite, too. My lashes look their best when I prime with Lancome Cils Booster, which is included in this set. It helps make them look soooo much longer and hold a curl all day, which is not normal for my lashes!
Anniversary Sale $59.50 / $95 value
Anastasia Beverly Hills sets the standard for brows, so I was thrilled to see this AHB set and add it to my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks. Anastasia Beverly Hills brow gel really is better than other brands. It’s weird, because you would think clear brow gel is clear brow gel. But somehow the ABH brow gel is like magic brow gel. It holds better, goes on more smoothly, and doesn’t get all clumpy in the bottle.
Anniversary Sale $28 / $43 value
Next on my list of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks is this NARS lip + cheek set. I wore this NARS velvet matte lipstick in this post and ended up using the entire stick not long after. It goes on so smooth and stays on really well.
Anniversary Sale $24 / $30 value
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks – Top NSALE 2018 Lip Picks
Soft pink lips are hot for fall 2018, and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks don’t disappoint in this section.
This MAC lip trio is at the top of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 beauty picks. It’s rare to see a cool-tone pink, and I think it will look great in the winter months.
Anniversary Sale $36.50 / $54.50 value
This Little MAC set offers the same idea at a slightly lower price point. I wore this set yesterday and loved it! Even my husband noticed.
Anniversary Sale $17 / $20 value
For those of you who prefer a nude lip, MAC also has you covered:
Anniversary Sale $36.50 / $54.50 value
Personally, I prefer the colors in the MAC nude lip duo to the MAC nude lip trio. The duo colors still have a hint of pink to them, which is more flattering on my skin tone.
Anniversary Sale $17 / $20 value
Here’s another fabulous pink set, and I just love the little bag this one comes with:
Anniversary Sale $70 / $95 value
This Bobbi Brown lip kit is the brightest pink option I found on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018, so I had to include it in my beauty picks. If I’m honest, a bright bright pink lip is my absolute favorite look.
Anniversary Sale $50 / $84 value
This next kit in my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks offers the best of both worlds: a pink and nude lip option.
Anniversary Sale $38 / $58 value
I’ll end my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks lip section with the cutest lip kit I’ve ever seen! All the heart eyes for this little set from Winky Lux:
Anniversary Sale $28 / $53 value
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks – Top NSALE 2018 Makeup Brush Picks
Two NSALE 2018 makeup brush sets caught my eye and made my list of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks. The first, and more affordable, is this set from MAC. They’re killing it at this year’s NSALE:
Anniversary Sale $52.50 / $172 value
[MAC is also offering an Advanced Brush Kit on NSALE 2018, with some rarer brushes included.]
The second is this set from Trish McEvoy. I’ve heard so many good things about her brushes, and I love how many different styles are included in this kit. You could create so many looks with it!
Anniversary Sale $185 / $315 value
In the kind-of-a-brush-but-not-really category is this set from Beautyblender. There’s a reason everyone owns at least one Beautyblender, and it’s because they work. This little set is a great way to get started with Beautyblender, because you not only get the applicators themselves, but also a carrying case [with holes to let your blender breathe] and blendercleanser to keep your blenders clean.
Anniversary Sale $35 / $60 value
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks – Top NSALE 2018 Hair Picks
For me, the best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks in the hair category are from Drybar. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve heard me talk about my love of Drybar products on Stories several times. Their dry shampoo is hands down the best I’ve ever tried, so I was thrilled to see it on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018.
Anniversary Sale $165 / $240 value
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo is my absolute favorite dry shampoo, and their Triple Sec is a close second. Before Drybar Detox, I was an every day washer. Now I was my hair twice a week and it doesn’t get greasy!
Anniversary Sale $52 / $75 value
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks – Top NSALE 2018 Nail Picks
There are a few notable nail care and nail polish picks on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018, like this Deborah Lippmann set. These shades are absolutely perfect for winter!
Anniversary Sale $29 / $60 value
Or this basecoat + topcoat set, which you could pair with any polish:
Anniversary Sale $19 / $36 value
And how cute is this manicure set? It’d be a perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season!
Anniversary Sale $23 / $42 value
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks – Top NSALE 2018 Skincare Picks
Skincare isn’t the most glamorous of items to purchase, so it takes a backseat to some other popular Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 picks. But, the NSALE is a great time to stock up on some favorites and take advantage of lower prices and gifts with purchase.
This is my favorite moisturizer of all time, and these bottles would probably last you until next year’s NSALE. A little of this stuff goes a long way. Your skin will feel moisturized, but not greasy. And you can put makeup on right away after applying it. With some thicker moisturizers, I feel like I have to let my face dry forever before I can put on foundation or anything.
Anniversary Sale $39 / $53.50 value
OK, so I feel a little pretentious even putting this next item on my list of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Beauty Picks. I never would’ve tried these, but I happened to win some in an Instagram giveaway a year ago.
Turns out, they’re absolutely amazing. So refreshing, and the mist is fine enough that you can spray your face without messing up your makeup [which is a reason I don’t like the reusable spray bottles as much]. I like to use the tiny bottles to take along to Colton’s t-ball games, when we go to amusement parks, etc. Anytime we’ll be outside a lot! I use them on myself and the kids, and I even catch my husband sneaking a spray now and then.
Anniversary Sale $18 / $33 value
[also available in this set of 5 smaller bottles, perfect for on-the-go]
Philosophy products are always a favorite. I remember buying my first bottles of Philosophy after getting my first “big girl job” as a lawyer and feeling like I’d really made it in the world.
This next set is actually my favorite way to use Philosophy, because while I love the Purity Made Simple, I generally need to use an exfoliating face wash to avoid breakouts. Philosophy’s The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash on sale is the best exfoliating face wash I’ve found. The exfoliating beads are suuuuper tiny, so they don’t hurt your face, but still very effective.
Anniversary Sale $60 / $99 value
I know most people prefer the Philosophy Purity Made Simple, though, and it can be hard to find Philosophy Purity Made Simple on sale. Here’s a set for you:
Anniversary Sale $55 / $87 value
I haven’t actually tried this next item before, but it looks so interesting. Even at 30, I still struggle with breakouts. The reviews on these LED light therapy devices are generally positive, so I’m curious if it would work for me.
On a very basic level, basically the blue lights are supposed to get rid of the bacteria that causes acne.
Anniversary Sale $110 / After Sale $165
[also considering this similar idea from Tria Beauty]
