The 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here, which means you have access to mega discounts on thousands of luxury goods in just about every shopping category. Unlike most seasonal sales, what makes this event truly hype-worthy is that it features new styles and products, so you can go ahead and get a head start on your fall wardrobe, as well as stock up on bestsellers that rarely get discounted.

The sale is so massive, it can feel overwhelmingly infinite if you don't do your homework ahead of time. Add that to the fact that inventory goes faster than you can say "La Mer," and you'll be glad that we put together a handy guide of how to shop it.

My favorite starting point is the beauty section, since the Anniversary Sale offers some of the best luxury makeup, skin care, and hair care deals of the year. I’m personally using the sale as an excuse to refresh my own collection as well as try several coveted items I have on my ever-growing wish list.

The Anniversary Sale runs from July 15 to July 31 both in stores and online. Go ahead and bookmark this page, since I’ll be updating it on the regular with all the new beauty product adds.

Behold: 13 of the best beauty deals from the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary sale

Oribe Magic Duo Full Size Gold Lust Dry Shampoo & Dry Texturizing Spray — $65.00

Worth $97, now $65

Consider this combination the key to having bouncy, shiny hair that looks like you just blow-dried it that morning (nobody has to know you haven’t washed your hair in three days). I tend to simultaneously use both—the dry shampoo to absorb excess oil and the texturizing spray to give my hair some body—and it never feels too heavy. And let’s just say I don’t even have to wear perfume on the days I use Oribe products.

Stila Stay All Day Play Eye Liner Duo — $32.00

Worth $44, now $32

Stila’s Stay All Day liquid eyeliner has passed a couple of vital tests: 1. It’s lasted through those muggy, hot days that leave you perpetually soaked with sweat (I’m just being real here). 2. It failed to smudge through many episodes of This Is Us (aka, a major sobfest). With its thin and precise tip, it takes little effort to draw on an even, bold line. It’s been my go-to for years, and I love that the ink lasts for months. Two full-size eyeliners for $32 is one heck of a steal.

MAC Cosmetics Boldly Bare Eye Attire Eye Set — $45.00

Worth $83, now $45

Two years of creating mask-friendly makeup looks has gotten me on an eyeshadow kick, so figured I might as well invest in a couple more eyeshadow palettes. I love that this set includes eight usable shades of eyeshadow, a soft pencil eyeliner, and mascara. I’ve always had good luck with MAC makeup, so I’m excited to give this a whirl.

NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Kit
NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Kit — $199.00

Worth $339, now $199

Sculpt and tone your face with the NuFace Trinity. I love this microcurrent device because it feels like it’s actually doing something without causing pain. It has five different settings that you use in short intervals to give your skin an instant boost while helping to tone it over time.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate Face Oil — $86.00

Originally $128, now $86

I already sang my praises for this pretty blue potion in our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wellness product roundup, but I’ll do it again because it’s worth double the swoon. As someone with oily skin, I’m hesitant when it comes to face oils, since some can really do some damage and leave me broken out the next morning. Not this stuff. Since the oil is on the more dry side, it absorbs nicely, and leaves my skin looking brighter and healthier when I wake up. Since it’s normally pricey, I’m snagging a bottle while it’s $42 off right now.

St. Tropez Jumbo Self Tan Bronzing Mousse
St. Tropez Jumbo Self Tan Bronzing Mousse — $46.00

Worth $80, now $46

Get enough self-tanner to last you through the summer with this jumbo-size St. Tropez Jumbo Self Tan Bronzing Mousse. It delivers a natural, healthy-looking tan with a streak-free and easy-to-apply formula.

Tula The Power Couple Set — $74.00

You can fully experience Tula’s nourishing probiotic-based formulas via the brand’s purifying cleanser and daily and nightly moisturizers—not just at home, but on the go, too. This set comes with full and travel-sized versions of each. If your main focus is getting your glow on and keep your skin hydrated (whether you’re up against aggressive A/C or a harsh, dry winter), this is a set that’ll be in your daily skin-care arsenal year-round.

Briogeo Hydrate + Repair Mask Kit
Briogeo Hydrate + Repair Mask Kit — $29.00

Worth $210, now $140

About once a month, I exfoliate my scalp with Briogeo’s best-selling Scalp Revival shampoo, and it helps clear product buildup (I’m looking at you, dry shampoo) and leaves my hair feeling a lot healthier and refreshed. What I haven’t tried yet are Briogeo’s hair masks, which are currently available in a set. For $29, you can get the repairing deep conditioning mask, a soothing and hydrating scalp mask, and a moisturizing superfood mask—all things I need for my naturally frizzy hair that’s suffered some hair dye and heat damage over the years.

RMS Beauty Magic Moments Set
RMS Beauty Magic Moments Set — $64.00

Originally $79, now $64

RMS literally invented the word “luminizer,” so Rose Marie Swift know a thing or two about creating that natural, sun-kissed look (in the most effortless way possible). Every RMS Beauty product I’ve ever tried is high-quality, has just the right amount of pigment, and always proves to be long-lasting. This Beauty Magic Moments kit will probably be my go-to until it’s too cold to go to the beach anymore.

Shishedo Ultimune Serum Set
Shishedo Ultimune Serum Set — $149.00

Worth $259, now $149

Shiseido has beauty down to a literal science, and offers some of the highest quality, most effective products on the market. If you’re on the hunt for skin-strengthening serums, I love that this set is powered by reishi mushrooms, which are rich antioxidants that contain polysaccharides and are known to hydrate and visibly reduce aging.

Jo Malone
Jo Malone Cologne Collection Set — $87.00

Worth $115, now $87

Since all of Jo Malone’s perfumes are gorgeous, it’s hard to pick a new one because, well, you’ll want them all. This discovery set gives you the opportunity of trying out scents you may not have tried before, and they’re travel-sized, so you can bring them with you on vacation, work, or just on-the-go for a re-spritz. The set includes my favorite, Nectarine Blossom and Honey, along with English Pear and Freesia, Mimosa and Cardamom, Peony and Blush Suede, and Wood Sage and Sea Salt.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Set
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Set — $70.00

Worth $140, now $70

Now is the time to restock on Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Gel Creme, or give it a try if you’ve never experienced the sorcery that is this rejuvenating formula. This set comes with a full-size jar and three travel-sized jars for $70, which is quite a deal. It works overtime into the night to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, leaving skin smoother and brighter in the morning.

Coola SPF Mist Assist Set
Coola SPF Mist Assist Set — $42.00

Worth $72, now $42

This three-piece set features two travel-size Suncare Ocean Salt & Sage Scalp & Hair Mist SPF 30 which are ideal for protecting your scalp and strands from UV rays and a travel-size bottle of Refreshing Water Mist sunscreen. We love Coola’s award-winning formula, and that these bottles are so easy to carry with wherever we go (hopefully on vacation).
