Black Friday is days away and we have a feeling there are going to be a lot of tired ladies out there early Friday morning. Don’t hit the sales before checking out our Black Friday beauty preparation tips!
Avoid a hairy situation
The last thing you want to think about at the crack of dawn this Black Friday is what to do with your hair! To avoid a hair disaster the morning of, prepare the night before.
Instead of waking up in the morning and washing your locks, wash the night before and throw in a little texturizing cream — we like Bb. Texture Hair (Un) Dressing Crème from Bumble and Bumble (sephora.com, $26) — to create gorgeous texture for the next day.
Or, if your hair is dry Thanksgiving night and you can hardly summon the energy to drag yourself into bed (never mind wash your hair!), braid your hair to create loose waves. Secure with snag-free elastics like Goody Ouchless Elastics (drugstore.com, $3) and you’ll be good to go on Black Friday!
If your hair is looking a little worse for the wear in the morning, a great go-to beauty product is Fresh Start Smoothing Dry Shampoo from Tresemme (www.target.com, $5). Spray it in your hair and look fresh and clean in under 5 minutes.
Nail the deals with ease
We know that long, fake nails are fun to wear, but they’re also a pain in the butt when you’re grabbing deal after deal on Black Friday! Avoid any broken nail trauma this Black Friday and go natural with your nails. You don’t have to forgo polish, ladies. In fact, we recommend painting your nails for Black Friday in this pretty Heart of Gold shade from Topshop (topshop.com, $10).
Make shopping bags the only bags you’re holding
Black Friday leaves us beauties very little time to apply a full face of makeup and some of us are lucky if we can even manage to swipe on some concealer after missing (err, ignoring) our early morning wake-up call. Spare yourself a few minutes of concealer application (after all, we’re sure you’ll need some, considering you hardly slept) by prepping your peepers. Avoiding salt can help reduce dark circles and so can some good old-fashioned shuteye! Do yourself a favor for Black Friday and hit the sheets a tad early, avoid late night leftover noshing and consider popping on some soothing eye pads like Recover-E Cucumber Eye Pads (ulta.com, $5) before you go to bed.
