The best Black Friday makeup and beauty deals
Phew – there is a lot going on over at Beauty Bay right now. Clearly not one to mess around, the retailer has already started discounting some of our go-to brands from Cover FX to Makeup Revolution, and even its own already super-affordable make-up line. Talk about peaking early…
Oh, one more thing: if you don’t snap up the brand’s Haul of Fame Box, which is full of nineteen cult make-up and skincare classics worth a total of £205, you’re missing out. Olaplex no.3 is in there (if you know, you know) and so is our favourite Made By Mitchell Blursh Liquid Blusher. It’ll set you back £60, and is perhaps one of the best Black Friday deals of the year.
Boots is one to keep bookmarked across the Black Friday weekend, with different deals dropping each day. Right now there are some seriously good ones. Grab fragrances for half price, save a frankly ridiculous £270 on this Braun IPL machine, or treat yourself to this luxe Sculpted by Aimee The Treasured gift set, which is half price.
Cult Beauty is our one-stop shop for stocking up on all our holy grails. From classic faves like Olaplex and Sunday Riley to some niche inclusions from Function of Beauty and Youth To The People, it’s the optimal retailer to attack on Black Friday sale as it literally has everything. Keep checking our lil’ round-up for all the discounts that we rate.
The retailer is going big on the Black Friday deals too. And when we say big, we mean up to half price on a host of skincare and makeup classics. Stay calm.
We’ve got the full scoop on Sephora Black Friday discounts right here, btw, across all categories.
Lookfantastic has some brilliant offers this Black Friday – but that probably won’t surprise you. The extravaganza is already underway with daily flash offers, including up to 50% off the likes of Bobbi Brown, Foreo and Medik8!
Check out our full round-up here.
Glam queen Charlotte Tilbury doesn’t do anything by halves, Black Friday included. This year, she is treating us to 40% off selected sets, and some very generous free gifts, too.
While they haven’t spilled on the discount deets yet, we’ll be keeping you updated here.
Glossier’s Black Friday sale is one worth getting up early for. This year, the brand is taking part in a 20% off everything sale, with the discount increasing to 30% (yes, that’s THIRTY) once you hit an £85 threshold. If your heart just skipped a beat, brace yourself as the discounts are live now. So that’ll be the entire Cloud Paint collection in your basket, will it?

Ghd’s Black Friday sale is the first place you should head if your tools are starting to sound a little creaky. Take ££ off all the icons, from the Air hairdryer and the Original IV Straightener to the sell-out Glide hot brush (yes, really). We have your ghd shopping guide right here.
It’s not often that Dyson products are on sale so if you’re looking to invest, listen up. You can save £100 on the Corrale Straightener and you get a gift with purchase worth £125 with the Supersonic. And there are more deals to be revealed in the month.
La Roche-Posay are doing things a little differently this year. Instead of giving discounts on the products, the brand is giving out free skin consultations between 21st – 27th November. Sign up on the website now to get your slot with a dermatologist or skin expert who can discuss skin concerns and help build a new routine with you.
The Ordinary are doing things a little differently this Black Friday by reintroducing its Slowvember campaign, which encourages slow, intentional purchases across the entire month with 23% off, whilst closing for the day on actual Black Friday (24th).
If you’re a fragrance fanatic, you’re going to want to pay attention to luxury brand Sana Jardin’s offerings. The sustainable fragrance brand is offering 30% off across all of its fragrances, rollerballs (ideal for travel) and candles from 20th – 27th November.
The Body Shop
The Body Shop has a bunch of great deals to keep you stocked up on your faves. The Body Shop Love Your Body Club loyalty scheme members can get early access to 25% off everything (including Advent calendars and gifts) from 16th – 21st November. If you’re not a club member, you can get the deals from 22nd November. In addition to this, from 14th – 27th November, you can save over 50% off on curated Black Friday Collections, with hand-picked bundles.
Struggling with your skin? It’s Dr. Sam Bunting you need to listen to. One of our most-trusted skin experts, Sam also has her very own line – and this Black Friday there are a few deals to pay attention to. The first to note is Dr Sam’s work with The Girl’s Network (an organisation that connects girls from the least advantaged communities with mentors) where the brand is matching every donation at checkout throughout the Black Friday period (20th-28th November).
You can also get a free digital gift card with every purchase from 20th-27th November; spend £50 and get a £10 gift card, spend £100 and get a £20 gift card, and spend £150 and get a £30 gift card for your next purchase.
And finally, you’ll get free delivery on all orders across the same promotional period.
This year is UKLash’s biggest Black Friday sale so get ready to stock up on some lash goodies. On 7th November, “VIP” customers (who signed up via email) get an exclusive preview of the sale with 35% off sitewide for 24 hours. The official sale begins on the 8th November, running throughout the month with 30% off sitewide.
What is Black Friday?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, you likely know the answer to this. In short, it’s the greatest shopping day of the year, where all your favourite brands and retailers slash prices across the board, just in time for Christmas.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday always arrives the day after Thanksgiving in the States: this year, it falls on Friday November 24. Set that calendar alert now.
How to bag the best Black Friday beauty deals
There’s something about a giant sale that makes us all lose our heads just a little. Be honest: how many times have you been seduced by a healthy reduction, only to come away with a haul of too-small shoes or not-quite-right lipstick shades. We know you’ve got at-least one dress in your wardrobe with the tags still sadly swinging from the label.
So, this year, it’s time to shop smarter – and success depends on preparation. Make a list of the things you really need (or really want), and stay laser-focused on locating those items. Do not be distracted by that nude eyeshadow palette (we know you’ve already got at least seven).
Of course, Black Friday is the best day to save big on those spenny items that you can’t justify at full price: think hair tools, skin tech devices, and luxury fragrances.
