2020 has been a hard year for beauty lovers—all that beautiful makeup and nowhere to wear it (except under a mask). But while the beauty industry might not have been bustling as we all stayed indoors, there is some good news: this year’s Black Friday sales are better than ever, with the opportunity to grab deals on tried-and-true necessities like skincare, sunscreen, and hair products, as well as delightful, day-brightening gift sets. What better way to manifest a more social 2021 than with a few gorgeous lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes? These are the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday beauty deals we’re shopping this weekend.
No retailer looms quite as large in beauty lovers’ hearts as Sephora—and the beauty retailer promises not to disappoint on the biggest shopping days of the year.

If you’re shopping for stocking stuffers, Sephora has a set for just about every kind of aficionado, from eyeshadow artists to skincare savants.
