A Beauty Fan's Guide to Facebook
- Posted by Kristen on April 20, 2010 at 05:25PM
I'm a late Facebook bloomer. Until I joined, I would get hostile-ish emails from friends like, "check out this link to photos from last night's party, unless you're (gasp!) not on Facebook" and "my goodness girl, please get on Facebook so people with boring desk jobs like mine can keep track of (and stalk) you!" Just as I was starting to feel like a social-networking leper, I finally succumbed, albeit kicking and screaming.
Now that it's part of my daily cyber life my interest in it waxes and wanes, but I've been Facebooking more often since I found the 11 best beauty pages to fan (I'm all over the freebies). Check out a few below -- did your fave make the list? If not, tell me who I'm missing out on.
The name says it all. Sale.com alerts you of all sorts of sales (beauty sales of course, being the number one stunner) and gives you "Daily Coupons!" for you to save big bucks on fab finds. See what type of "fan-only" giveaways they offer.
Becoming a fan of Sephora is a no brainer, but just in case it never crossed your mind, now is the time to fan them. Why? If you become a fan they'll give you beauty products. Read on to see which freebie all new fans got -- just for joining.
