Sure, the whole food-and-family part of Thanksgiving break is great, but we all know that the real excitement of the holiday comes the day after the big feast — on Black Friday. It's easily the best (and, yes, the craziest) shopping day of the year, because the deals on everything from clothes to shoes to electronics are incredibly affordable. But the best deals of all? The Black Friday and Cyber Monday beauty deals, of course.
For one weekend each year, we can get our hands on department store quality skincare, makeup, and hair products for drugstore prices. Not to mention that we can get drugstore products for practically nothing. The deals are pretty much the best thing to ever happen
Thankfully, Black Friday isn't just one day anymore (I remember those days, and they were horrible), so you won't have to get up at 3 a.m. to go wait in line at Sephora/Ulta/Nordstrom to score big. All of these beauty deals are available online, and some last through the weekend and into Cyber Monday, so you can get all of your holiday shopping done while you lounge on your mom's couch and watch Elf.
