Ah, Black Friday. The annual shopping event that sees many prices slashed across a range of products - and this includes fantastic savings on makeup, skincare, fragrances and beauty tools. You don't need to wait until the day itself to snap up those savings though, as beauty discounts are now live.

Black Friday is now big business in the UK, with many retailers and brands keen to get a slice of the action and entice shoppers with big savings. From TVs to tablets, washing machines to watches, the savings will be plentiful and across a range of products. 

Whether you're in the market for a new beauty electric product like a hairdryer or are wanting to bag a perfume deal, November is the best time to grab yourself a beauty bargain. Many shoppers love that Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) falls right before Christmas, so it's worth honing your present list so you can have an idea of what you want to search for during the November sales.

How to find the best Black Friday beauty and perfume deals

Woman spraying perfume on wrist

"I have already started buying gifts but have my eye on a fitness watch, a new bed and maybe some beauty items if there are any really good deals." - EatPrayYoga

"My DD (13) is after some GHD pink straighteners (even though her hair is actually straight) and they are soooo expensive. So if I can find those anywhere I'll be pleased." - TenCornMaidens

"Superdrug has a number of perfumes half price." - freakydeaky

From the latest gadgets to designer perfume, beauty goods can be pricey so it's no wonder they're a big hit on Black Friday. We'll be doing the hard work for you and updating this page with all the best deals we can find on makeup, haircare, beauty electronics, perfume and more, so do bookmark this page and check back as we'll be adding the biggest and most popular discounts as they go live. 

If you have a particular brand or retailer in mind, signing up to receive their emails may also lead to a tip-off about a hot sale or keep you in the know about the top bargains. It's worth shopping around to find the best savings though, and that's exactly what we'll be hunting down for you on all of our Black Friday pages. 

Mumsnetters usually recommend planning ahead, particularly if you're doing a large chunk of your Christmas shopping in the sales, and sitting down at your laptop armed with a list of what you need so you can stay focused. There will, of course, be the odd bargain you weren't looking for that catches your attention too.

What shops will be offering the best Black Friday beauty deals in the UK?

"There are so many deals at the moment that tempt me - 25-30% off Nars, 30% off Charlotte Tilbury, and I’m a sucker for the Boots deals..." - ReeRi

Some early Black Friday beauty deals are already live on Amazon (if you're subscribed to Amazon Prime you can get free next day delivery on a lot of items), Boots, and Superdrug. We also expect to see decent savings from FeelUnique, LOOKFANTASTIC, The Body Shop, ASOS, and Cult Beauty.

If you're searching for an electronic beauty tool, it's also worth checking retailers like Currys, Argos and Dyson for those big ticket buys.

Many shoppers will also be looking to their favourite brands for discounts too, including: Charlotte Tilbury, GHD, Cloud Nine, Nars, MAC, and Glossier, Liz Earle, and Bobbi Brown, to name but a few.

Tips for finding the best Black Friday beauty and perfume deals

When it comes to shopping tips, nothing compares to real tricks and hacks from those who've been there. So we took to our forums to find out the ways Mumsnet users shop the Black Friday sales: 

"Research exactly what you are wanting in advance and find a few different models as not all will be included... Recommend to start looking start of November as retailers have been doing Black November recently!" - Justanotheruser01

"Plan in advance what you actually want to buy. Do all your research in advance." - tectonicplates

"Do your homework and make sure you know the prices beforehand. Some just do 24 hour sale but others run their sale for a week. As long as you know what you want and how much the usual price is, you can't go too far wrong." - lahlah11

We'd also recommend signing up for Amazon Prime if you're planning on heading there for some of your beauty buys as this gives you free next day delivery on many products. It's priced at £7.99 per month and if you've not had Prime before you can get a free 30-day trial. Interested? Find out more here

What were the best Black Friday beauty deals in 2020?

While it's not an exact science, looking at beauty Black Friday deals from the previous year can be a good indication of similar deals you can expect this year. With the restrictions of November and December in 2020 meaning that the Christmas period wasn't quite as normal, it'll be interesting to see how the beauty deals are affected this year as we see the return of the Christmas party season. 

Here are some of the top beauty discounts from last year: 

  • Best overall Black Friday beauty deal: Get up 50% off plus a free beauty bag if you spend over £100 at LOOKFANTASTIC
  • Best Black Friday skincare deals:
  • Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules, £28.56 (was £42)
  • Buy one get one free at NIP+FAB 
  • PIXI Glow Tonic 250ml, £11.88 (usually £18 at LOOKFANTASTIC)
  • Best Black Friday cosmetic deal: Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette, £25.80 (saving £17.20) 
  • Best Black Friday haircare deal: Toni & Guy Slick Straightener, £29.99 (was £39.99)

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is a sales event that sees many shops, both in store and online, offer discounts to customers. Since 2010, when Amazon kicked off its first Black Friday promotion, the sale period has grown in popularity thanks to impressive offers and its proximity to Christmas, meaning many people are often searching for specific products (plus the odd impulse buy, of course).

When did Black Friday start?

Originating in America, the Black Friday sales started as a one-day only sales event following Thanksgiving. As many people had this Friday off, it was a big opportunity for shops to lure customers in with big savings and discounted stock. The term itself wasn't first used to describe this shopping day though, and it's thought that it was initially used in the 1960s to describe busy traffic during this period.  

When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday is on 26th November in 2021, following the tradition of it being the day after American Thanksgiving. Deals start earlier though, with some beauty offers already available. 

After Black Friday, there will also be discounts across the weekend, and on Cyber Monday, but remember that the best savings often get snapped up very quickly so don't hang around if there's a bargain that's caught your eye. 

The earliest deals have begun, and we'll be updating all of our best Black Friday deals pages throughout the month with the top savings we find. 

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is always on the Monday following Black Friday, and as they're close together and the sales continue over the weekend, they tend to be classed as the same sales period. 

Traditionally, the main difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday was that the Friday was centred around in store promotions and, as the name suggests, Cyber Monday was more about getting a great deal online. Since many of us now do a lot of shopping online anyway (especially since the coronavirus pandemic began), this distinction has faded, as many retailers now offer online discounts on Black Friday too.

When is Cyber Monday 2021? 

This year Cyber Monday falls on Monday 29th November. It's another day to get some great savings, but remember the deals will be beginning much earlier so you don't have to wait until the Monday to bag a beauty bargain.
