Shopping is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and shopping on a sale multiplies that pleasure tenfold. Black Friday is the pinnacle of that, what with brands dramatically slashing prices and offering discounts on their wares. Though most exploit Black Friday as an avenue to stock up on Christmas gifts for a fraction of the cost, it also offers a major opportunity to live by the philosophy to treat yourself. Beauty brands are right on board with that saying, capitalising on Black Friday to hold some of the best retail promotions around.
Get ready, get your digital carts set, and get to shopping come 29 November with our guide to the best beauty deals this Black Friday 2019.
Everyone’s favourite beauty retailer, Sephora, will be offering 15 per cent off most of their products on Black Friday, beginning 12 am on its webstore come 29 November, and during opening hours on the same day at its physical stores. Beauty Pass members, however, get early access to the sale, with promotions applicable from 28 November to 29 November, both online and at the boutiques.
Online beauty retailer, Wishtrend, is our go-to when stocking up on Korea’s finest makeup and skincare wares.

Net-A-Porter’s Black Friday sales are always one of our favourites, and its beauty arm is not exempt from this excitement.
