Okay, we all know what's about to happen at the end of the week and I for one am on the edge of my seat waiting. Not only is it pay day, but it's also Black Friday; a dangerous combination!
Black Friday is infamous for sending us all barmy over a decent discount on something we probably wouldn't have bought unless those final few pounds had been knocked off.
For me, this is the time I set my sites on some of those high end beauty favourites that I can't really afford on a day to day basis. Let's be realistic here. I might be a beauty blogger, but I'm also saving for a mortgage and don't really have the money to be spending on Chanel, Clinique and Mac so I will be using the Black Friday sales to upgrade my make up collection and give my high street beauty buys some designer sisters.
The great thing about this weekend is that there are so many opportunities to make amazing savings! Not only is Black Friday on 27th November, but Cyber Monday is on 30th November, which is another chance to cash in on some discounts. (FYI: in 2014, Cyber Monday actually offered the best beauty product discounts!)
But the discounts, bargains and everything else going on on Black Friday can be overwhelming, so here are my tips for getting the best beauty bargains on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
1. Know what you're looking for
It's really difficult to just browse on Black Friday. There's so much going on. Stores and websites will be so busy and browsing to see if something takes your fancy may not be the most efficient way and you might find yourself missing out on what you really want while you're just seeing what else is out there.
If you're dead set on grabbing that pricey palette then make a beeline for it and don't look back! Once you've bagged your beauty bargains, you can have a peek at the rest of the deals!
2. Check it's on sale
Do a bit of research before you start shopping. Take a look at a few of the items you're after in a few different stores so you can check you're actually getting a good deal!
3. Stay safe
Lots of scammers take Black Friday and Cyber Monday as the perfect opportunity to set up sites and advertise the best deals and you could find your card information compromised.
Only buy from stores that you trust and those that use secure checkouts!
5. Check back here!
Along with many of your other favourite bloggers, I will be posting a whole host of amazing beauty deals on Black Friday that will take you straight through to Cyber Monday so you can see the best discounts across the internet so you can bag yourself that amazing make up collection!
