Decade of Decadence: A Perfect 10

As many of you know, we celebrated our ten year anniversary throughout the month of September with massive sales, gifts and a PARTY! It was a blast. 

We had a great turnout, lots of local customers, new customers and community support. Cielo on South Lamar was fantastic, donating a beautiful venue for the party with tons of room and a great bar to showcase our fearless leader (and his mixing skills!)

We had a Mustache Bar for the gentlemen where they could try out some of our men’s facial products, a DJ for the dance-inclined, and plenty of photo opportunities for our lovely attendees.

With some party-specific deals, Kimberly took a shift managing our little pop-up shop looking as stunning as ever!

Representatives from some of our most popular lines were present, including iS Clinical, Osmosis, EltaMD, G.M. Collin and Dermalogica. They were there to chat, demonstrate their excellent products, and pose for pretty pictures, of course!

Most importantly, our event managed to raise over $1000 for Austin’s Dress for Success, an organization that we believe in and support wholeheartedly. It was a pleasure and an honor to have Judy Chambers, the Executive Director of the Austin chapter of this national organization, join us herself. The difference she is making every day is immeasurable, her poise undeniable.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to have spoken with her, even briefly, and to have been some small part of the admirable work she does. 

All in all, the night was a roaring success. Much like the last ten years, that success is all due to YOU, and we cannot thank you enough.
Here’s to another ten years of beauty, deals and a little bit of decadence… ♥♥♥

Fall Beauty


Fall is officially here. The temperature is dropping, the days are getting shorter, and the air is becoming a bit more dry. With this transition, you may need to switch up your routine, if not to protect your skin, then to at least stay up to date with the current beauty trends! Read on for tips on how to keep your skin stylish and supple all season long.

Lock in the Moisture

As the air becomes more dry, so does your skin. It is crucial that you moisturize daily, even if you are oily. You may want to even switch from a lotion to a cream in order to maximize effectiveness and combat dryness. The best time to apply a moisturizer is right after you shower or wash your face. And it’s not just your face that could be drying out! During fall and winter, most people tend to experience cracked or dry hands. Try a hand cream like Avene Cold Cream Hand Cream or gloMinerals Luxury Hand Cream to deeply moisturize your mitts.

Deep Colors

Out with the pastels and pinks, in with the deep reds and plums. When it comes to your nails, try a deep shade like OPI Muppets Collection Pepe's Purple Passion Nail Polish or OPI Nail Polish - Got The Blues For Red. As far as lips go, think 90's: vampy, dark, and daring. For a really bold fall lip, try Pur Minerals Chateau De Vine Lipstick in Jezebel or GloMinerals GloLip Stick in Bordeaux. In addition to the deep shades for nails and lips, we're seeing a lot of flushed cheeks on the runway. Blush is making a huge comeback...as if it ever left the spotlight!


Since fall and dry skin go hand in hand, try to avoid soap. This DOES NOT mean you get a free pass on washing your face. It simply means that you have to be more thoughtful about what you put on your face. Soap can be very drying. Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is a perfect soap-free cleanser that soothes even the most sensitive skin, while gently removing oil, buildup, and debris from your pores.

Line 'em Up

Eyeliner is not just for one dainty line across your lash line anymore. This season that is made quite clear as we begin to see very creative eyeliner designs on the runway. From stripes and dots to angles and exaggerations, we are seeing a lot of inventive ways to use the traditional black eyeliner. Tap into your inner artist and see what you come up with. We recommend Blinc Eyeliner for its staying power. Or, if you are more used to a pen, try the Osmosis Colour Liquid Eye Definer.

Now that you know the best ways to hydrate your skin and enhance your look for fall, you're ready to enjoy the best things about this lovely season: Halloween, pumpkin flavored everything, the magnificent leaves, Oktoberfest, and getting cozy by the fireplace with your loved ones. 

Until Next Time!

A Letter From the Founder


A letter from our founder:

We're turning 10 this month and wanted to say thank you to all our wonderful and loyal customers like you. Over the past 10 years we have had the pleasure of serving so many customers. Some of you we get to talk to on the phone or emails and some we even get to meet in person at our events or shows. Either way it has been a pleasure for our entire team.

A decade is a long time. Few things in our lives or in the world last that long--the average online startup doesn't quite make it two years. I'm honored and humbled that you've stuck with us all this time, and I promise that in the decade ahead, beautystoredepot will continue to deliver the best products, at the best prices, and with the best service.

To the next 10 years and beyond...

Mike Andrews
