6 Black Friday Basic Makeup Essentials to Shop 2016

Black Friday 2016 sales are the perfect time to stock up and save on makeup essentials. I mean, it’s the holiday season and stores like Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom are ready to give you deep discounts on beauty products for their Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales events. Get beauty basics like mascara, eyeliner, blush, lipstick, makeup brushes and even holiday makeup gift sets. Plus, isn’t the rush of finding the best gift products exciting? There will be so many popular gifts under $25 to get for Christmas presents. I may or may not geek out a little bit and shop these sales till I drop while sipping my Pumpkin Spice Latte (I have no shame).

Black Friday is one of my favorite times to stock up on basic makeup essentials. This is where you find the best deals.

Here are the 6 Black Friday Makeup Essentials I will be Shopping for. Keep in mind, Black Friday deals for 2016 have not been released yet for Sephora or Ulta, but stay tuned because once they are announced, I will give you my favorite picks.

I don’t think that there is a better time to stock up on favorite mascara’s than Black Friday. Sephora and Ulta usually have $10.00 mascara deals on brands like Too Faced (hello better than sex), It Cosmetics, Urban Decay and more. Sometimes there are mini mascara sets that are perfect for stocking stuffers or for you because clearly you are makeup obsessed. Mascara deals that are already happening right now for the Holidays are: Sephora Favorites Lash Bash, Total Perversion Reloaded.
