Birthdays are always so much fun, but the best part? The presents, duh (OK — and cake). But if you're a beauty-lover like me, the latest in beauty is always on your wishlist. Here are 11 beauty brands that offer birthday freebies that will have you wishing every day is your birthday:
The majority of us already know about Sephora's birthday gift program, but if you don't know, signing up for Sephora's Beauty Insider reward card program (it's free!) will give you a special birthday gift when you visit the store within two weeks of your birthday.
UltaMate Rewards card is the key for free birthday goodies at Ulta. Ulta will send you your birthday certificate, then you just need to bring it into a store with you to claim your gift. Easy as 1,2,3!
Want to snag a free full-size single eye shadow? Sign up for Urban Decay's Beauty Junkies reward program. With any purchase, you get a free eye shadow in any shade you want for your birthday!
Like Urban Decay, Smashbox requires you to make a purchase to redeem your special birthday gift (not like that's hard). Just sign up for its SmashCash program and you'll get a free gift when your birthday comes around.

If you join Tarte’s Pretty Perks Program on your birthday, you receive a 20% off code that’s valid for 30 days.
Signing up for the Fresh Family rewards program lets you collect points and gets you a special gift on your birthday. If you're shopping online, you'll need to make a purchase for your birthday gift, but if you have a Fresh boutique near you, you can just walk in during your birthday month and pick it up for free. Past birthday gifts include a duo of its iconic Sugar Lip Treatments.
The Body Shop:
The Body Shop offers the Love Your Body Program. This is a rewards card that costs $10 to sign up, but on your birthday, you receive a gift of $10 off your purchase. With just that perk, the card pays for itself.
