Who says you can't buy makeup on a budget? As part of budget week, we are looking at three of the best beauty loyalty programmes that can save you money and make your dollar go the extra mile.

Whether they send you vouchers, give you a birthday gift or alert you to sales, these beauty cards have become my personal favourites. Granted we don't have the best loyalty programmes here in Australia and our US friends have access to some pretty awesome ones, we work with what we have got.

Myer One
There are four levels with Myer; Red, Silver, Gold and Platinum and the level you are on is dependant on how much money you have spent at Myer, the more your spend the more you are entitled to. Each of the levels earns two shopping credits for every dollar spent at Myer. It starts at the red level which is where you spend under $1499 annually and some perks include; invitations to events and a free emporium magazine. Silver you will receive all the aforementioned and a $10 birthday voucher. Gold members receive a $20 birthday voucher, free delivery for online purchases and VIP member offers. The platinum level is by invitation only.
Red: up to $1499
Silver: $1500-$5999
Gold: $6000+
Platinum: Invite only

Mecca Beauty Loop
This is a really cool loyalty programme because it involves free little goodie boxes four times a year and the more you spend in store annually, the bigger and better the boxes are. Often they have high end samples of NARS, Kate Sommerville, their own brand and all different sorts of products. You also get invites to in store and international events, complimentary makeup applications and lessons plus if you are on levels 2 or 3 you will also receive a birthday gift.
Level 1: $300- $599
Level 2: $600-$1199
Level 3: $1200+

Priceline Sister Club
This one is by far my favourite loyalty programme because I feel like I definitely get something back. You receive a point for every dollar you spend and they add up and give back to you in the form of vouchers. I feel like each month I am greeted with $20, $30 or even larger vouchers and it really is amazing the amount you get back so I am a huge advocate for this one. Vouchers to Priceline? A girl can never have enough of those. Besides, I am sure you shop there all the time anyway so it is definitely great to take advantage of a programme like this. Other perks include VIP invitations, deals and secret sales.

Lastly, I wanted to mention an amazing app where you can store all of your loyalty programme cards which is StoCard for iPhone (I believe it came already installed in my iPhone 6) and it is amazing because you can clear out your wallet from all those cards and keep them digitally on the app.
So what are you waiting for? You can sign up to all three of these online! Happy shopping and money saving.
