Let’s face it: Makeup and skin care can get expensive. Even when shopping tried-and-true bargain beauty brands, you can easily find yourself filling up your cart when you just wanted to replace your mascara. The good news is that you can keep being the makeup maven you are while cashing in on some serious perks. These six beauty rewards programs offer everything from free products to rewards points while you earn Cash Back at Ebates.
