It's the most wonderful time of the year — to finalize your shopping strategy, that is.

Keep scrolling to see makeup, skincare, hair, and fragrance deals that you can shop now at Nordstrom ahead of the holiday.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation
With a stamp of approval from Meghan Markle, Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk foundation is one of the best. It's smooth and leaves a flawless finish. Unlike some other oil-free foundations, the formula melts into your skin and doesn't obviously sit on top of it. Shoppers and makeup artists love the foundation, too — one Nordstrom shopper wrote, "I've been a makeup artist for 12 years, and I use it on everyone. [It's] flawless, airbrushed, blendable, luminous, so many words to describe it."

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm
You either love cleansing balms, or you haven't found the right one yet. If you fall into the latter category, this one from Elemis is sure to convert you. The texture is rich and creamy and immediately melts into skin to remove dirt, debris, and makeup, even long-lasting and waterproof formulas. The best part? No greasy or filmy residue is left over. One shopper said that giving the cleansing balm five stars isn't enough: "It just melts away my makeup, even waterproof mascara. No makeup bag should be without this little pot of magic!"

Drybar The Double Shot Round Blow-Dryer Brush
The Double Shot combines a hairdryer with a round brush to give you a blowout at home that looks like you came straight from a Drybar salon. The brush hits every strand to make sure no dampness is left behind, ultimately cutting the time it takes to dry your hair in half. "My hair is naturally super curly, and before, I would have to shower, blow-dry, straighten, then curl my hair," a reviewer explained. "Now, I can just shower, then towel dry, put in products, and use the double shot, and it gives me amazing Duchess of Cambridge's hair in less than 20 minutes."
