As a lover of all things beauty, I know just how expensive buying makeup can be. From high-end eyeshadow palettes to the latest in hair care, keeping up with beauty trends isn't always cheap. However, if you're a beauty addict like me, then you need to check out discount beauty websites. These sites have everything from discontinued makeup collections to cult favorites. Who needs to spend hours debating their budget at a department store when you can get it all online for less? It's any shopper's dream come true. 

What's great about most discount beauty sites is their wide selection. Usually, you can find everything from drugstore to high-end options without ever leaving the same website. If you look around closely, you can find some amazing deals. Just be sure to check out specific website reviews before you purchase any products. There are a few dark corners of the Internet that are ready to take your money, and sell you bogus products. It's worth the few extra minutes to verify the website's authenticity before clicking check out. Excited about the possibility of new, inexpensive beauty products? Here are a few of my favorite discount beauty websites that you need to know about. 

1. Rue La La

Marc Jacobs Perfume, $60, Ruelala

With a ever-changing range of discount products, you'll be refreshing the website constantly. One of my favorite beauty discounts that they have currently is Marc Jacobs' Daisy Dream Perfume for only $59.99. That's $34 off of the regular price. The only catch to the website is that you have to sign up with your email before you can view any of their deals. This just means that you'll receive daily emails on the site's hottest deals. Trust me, it's totally worth it. 

2. Hautelook

Mally Beauty Palette, $18, Hautelook

Similiar to Rue La La, Hautelook is another pop-up sale site. This means that the site will have a fire sale on a specific brands for a few short days. For instance, Hautelook is currently selling this gorgeous eyeshadow palette by Mally Beauty for $18. That's a 64 percent discount from the normal price. With different beauty-based sales happening every other day, this is great for those who are looking for an instant deal.

3. Glambot

Buxom Face Palette, $22, Glambot

Looking to buy or sell gently used makeup? Check out Glambot! This website is awesome for those who want to try out trend beauty products or invest in gently used pieces. If you're looking to sell some of your own collection, then the site will send you a free shipping label, and review your products. If they like what they see, then they'll offer you cash or store credit for your products. How easy is that?

4. All Cosmetics Wholesale

NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo, $30, All Cosmetics Wholesale

All Cosmetics Wholesale was the first beauty discount website that I ever encountered when I first started working with makeup back in 2011. This website is great for those who are looking to get their hands on a discontinued product or collection. You can even find great staple items, such as the NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo for insanely cheap. Go ahead and bookmark this website now. 

5. Beauty Encounter

Stila Sun Bronzing Powder, $10, Beauty Encounter

If you're looking for a mix of drugstore and high-end beauty products, then this is the site for you. This website has a huge selection of products, so be warned. This is not for the faint-of-heart shopper. 

6. Buy Me Beauty

NARS Satin Lip Pencil, $20, Buy Me Beauty

Besides having an adorable page layout, this site has an amazing selection of products. Buy Me Beauty has everything from discontinued products to cult favorite products. With $5 shipping, you'll become a beauty addict in no-time (if you aren't already). 

7. Discount Beauty Center

Redken Color Extend Shampoo, $15, Discount Beauty Center

As someone who works in a hair salon, I know just how expensive hair care products can be. Don't waste you money buying them retail. Get them discounted instead. Discount Beauty Center has an amazing selection of hair care and makeup products that will leave you swooning for more. 

Shopping for beauty products can be even more fun than usual. Imagine that.
