Black Friday is such a good day for the beauty world!  I've done the work so that you don't have to and I've found some of the BEST deals, bundles, and gift sets for y'all that will be on super sale come Friday! (and some of these sales even begin on Thanksgiving day!) 


There are a TON of great things on sale for Black Friday-- this is NOT a complete list!  These are just MY PICKS for best deals!


**Click on the pics to go to each item's site!  Be sure to read the captions because I'll post all sale/discount code info there!








If you're oily-- this primer is GREAT!  And on BF, it's on sale from $25.... to $10.  I REPEAT -  $10.  Thanksgiving Day, while you're eating your mashed potatoes at 5pm, PUT THIS IN YOUR CART AND CHECKOUT because it will def sell out.








Skincare Sampler - this set has a tonnnnn of good stuff in it and on BF it's only $4.99 online!  It's a great gift for someone for sure-- or even a white elephant Christmas party gift!  






GiGi Hadid x Maybelline PALETTE!  This may be Maybelline but its quality is high end.  Ulta will have it for $20 on Black Friday (usually $30!)  This is available at Ulta ONLY and has been selling out like crazy-- because LOOK AT IT!  It has eye shadows, bronzer, blush, highlighter, mascara... everything you need for an everyday look.  





BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO!  Ulta will have this buy one, get one FREE for Black Friday!  DEFINITELY stock up on this.  I haven't used any other dry shampoo for years now.  This stuff is the absolute best and it's reviews speak for themselves!  







This deal is AMAZING! You get SIX FULL-SIZE Soap & Glory bath and skincare products.... for $20!!  This is such a good gift for someone (or yourself) because it's not tiny sample sized products-- they're full size!  You get a ton for your money with this one!










     This is one of my FAVORITE curling irons and on BF, it's on sale at Ulta for $22 (regularly $55!)  If you're in the market for a new curling iron, Hot Tools is an incredible brand and this exact iron will last you for YEARS!









Urban Decay palettes don't go on sale, y'all.  This BEAUTIFUL baby (just look at that top row of neautrals!!!) is on sale on Black Friday for only $14!!!  It doesn't matter who you buy this for or if you don;t even know yet, its worth it for sure to grab one!








I wouldn't necessarily call this a giftable item, but just pick it up for yourself.  Ulta will have full size bottles for just $6 on Black Friday!  The Body Shop's tea tree oil is the ONLY thing I will spot treat with on pimples and the next day (even the bad under the skin zits) are almost gone.  I'm not exaggerating.  I've heard this trick from beauty bloggers for forever and they are right!  It works better than any other spot treatment I've tried.







Who here is obsessed with the Oribe Dry Texturizing spray??  (both my hands are up!)  Well I hear theres a DUPE in town and it's this guy!  I cannot waaaaait to try it and it's on sale for $9 on Black friday!!  Thats over half off! 












This is actually a GREAT free gift with all these full size Ulta products!  You could gift this to someone for Christmas itself!







Some people doubt ELF make-up so hard, but y'all.  They have stepped up their game and have some INCREDIBLE products.  They are right on par with any other drugstore make-up brand for SURE and I use a lot of their products consistently.


Here are some of my favs-- on sale for 50% off PLUS free shipping on every order on Black Friday!!





$5 on black friday! 

It's an all matte palette, super creamy shadows that easily apply! There are actually 3 different color schemes you can choose from--- all for $5!










$3 on Black Friday for the LARGE bottle! 

Their make-up setting spray is great and on par with the NYX Setting sprays that are super popular.  I think they are dupes for eachother, for sure!  








  $2 on Black Friday! 

This Correct and Cet under eye powder (specifically in shade "Banana" is a GREAT setting powder to brighten your under-eye and t-zone AND is a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills one!!  









$4 on BF!

I'm sure you've seen this baby before because beauty bloggers raved about it when it came out!  Two beautiful blushes on any skin tone, a light bronzer to add some warmth, and a highlight!  These are shockingly pigmented and blendable too.  









$9 on BF!

Say no more.  All of ELF's most popular, best selling items in a bundle for $9!  This beautiful blush palette with 4 wearable colors, their blush brush, lip crayon, lip stick, and gel liner.  This is a no brainer!

This Rose Gold Glam set is BEYOND pretty!  You get the beautiful eyeshadow palette, a really pretty mauve-color lip crayon, their best selling gloss, AND the prettiest peach highlighter and blush!  all for only $10!








$5 on BF!

You get their SUPER popular eyeshadow primer, easy tip liquid liner, and LOOK at that Clay eyeshadow palette... for $5.  ah!!!














Known for their high end brushes and make-up,  Sigma products almost never go on sale.


They are offering 30% off plus free shipping on BF!



$24 on BF!

I'm sure you've seen this brush cleaning mat EVERYWHERE.  It's that good and the brush shampoo that comes with it will make your make-up brushes soft and clean and like-new everytime.



















Just need a big ol' bottle of Sigma's best brush cleaner?  Grab this for just $11 on BF!  Shipped free, remember!


















Beauty Bay is offering 30% + off everything on their site- SHIPPED FREE!

This is probably my FAVORITE Black Friday deal because they have high end make-up brands on sale that NEVER go on sale!  Beauty Bay is the BEST deal on make-up that you'll find!!






Anastasia Brow Wiz and Definer:  Usually $23, on sale for $19!

Don't pass this up y'all.  Anastasia is the leader of the brow game and her brand is usually excluded from sales!










RCMA No-Color Translucent powder is among the best of the best.  Hands down.  And you get SO MUCH product that you're getting so much for your money.  Usually $21, Beauty Bay has this for $16!









JEFFREE STAR LIQUID LIPS FOR $14!!!!  Enough said.  (Actually, one more thing, "Androgyny"- his number one seller bc it's the PERFECT SHADE shown in the pic- is in stock and my personal fav!!!)









LA Girl Glow Beauty Blush/Contour/Highlight palette- $7!!

So perfect to have in your make-up bag and LA Girl powders are so blendable and easy to wear!







MORPHE Bronzed Mocha eyeshadow palette- $16!!!

This eyeshadow palette is one of my favs of all time.  I literally use it on EVERY BRIDE I've had this whole past year.  A mix of matte and shimmer shades you literally don't need any other neutral palette!









PUR Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Eye palette- $21!!!

This is just. so. pretty.  I think I need.








If you're a little afraid of highlighter and don't want an intense shimmer on your face, but still want to look like you have a "glow from within", go with this because it is PERFECT.  It's a subtle champagne shade and adds glow without the shimmer or glitter.  OH-- and it's $6!









Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel-- on sale for $21!!  This is such a necessity y'all.  For everyone.  Even if you don't fill in your brows, a tinted brow gel just makes your brows look more full and put together and fills in sparsity.   Definitely grab one of these!







AHHHH! This is the PUR HydraGel Lift Eye Perfecting Primer... on sale for  $14!!!..... basically it's magical eye cream in a stick form.  It makes your eyes look awake and lifted and bright and blurs any fine lines or undereye lines and most importantly, it makes your concealer and eyeshadows apply SO smoothly and pretty!!!  I'm DEFINITELY grabbing this to use on myself and grabbing one to use on clients!






So for $7, I am definitely picking this up.  I haven't tried this before but the reviews are great and people really claim that it kept them super matte through the day!









This is the toner that I talked about in my blog post about how I went from oily to normal skin in a few weeks of changing my skincare.  This toner is AMAZING and on sale for $17!!








On sale for $21!!

This is basically an all around great mask for anyone who just needs a good face mask to turn to.  It has so many vitamins for your skin, cleans out impurities, hydrates, and treats your skin complexion.  It is in powder form and you mix it with a little water to create a paste and then apply it to your face.  It has AMAZING reviews-- this whole brand does-- and I can't wait to try it.







Dr Brandt Pores No More cleanser-- on sale for $26!!  This cleanser does just what it says.  Your pores will look way smaller after using this and it blocks against oil!
