Shopping a department store on Black Friday is both thrilling and terrifying. With so many categories and so much to choose from amongst the seemingly countless deals, no doubt it gets overwhelming as you attempt to take advantage of the annual savings opportunity. Often, it's best to approach the shopping event with a distilled plan of attack, focusing on just one or two departments to avoid relentlessly fighting crowds. And the Macy's Black Friday 2019 beauty deals are enough to convince you to head to the beauty counter on the big shopping day, trust.
It's questionable whether there's a department store more famed during this time of year than Macy's — after all, it puts on an entire Thanksgiving Day Parade every year, so you know the brand takes the holidays seriously. And once the floats have traveled their routes and returned home, Macy's doesn't skip a beat turning out seriously impressive deals for the biggest shopping day of the year.
Obviously there are savings to be scored across the entire store, from home goods to fashion to children's toys and tech, but any self-proclaimed beauty obsessive is going to zero in on deals in that particular category immediately.
While doorbusters start on Nov. 27, the real fun starts on Thanksgiving Day, when most Macy's store open up at 5 p.m. and stay open until 2 a.m. — so forego dessert and head to your local store instead (just double check on macys.com and click on "stores" to confirm info in your area). Or, stop by on Black Friday itself, when doors open at 6 a.m. and stay open through 10 p.m. in most locations.
Head to the beauty counter to find deals like $15 fragrance boxes for women and men (perfect gifts for perfume-loving family members), and $10 products from fan-favorite brands like Too Faced, Benefit Cosmetics, Clinique, Urban Decay, and more. Rather avoid the crowds? Log on to Macy's website or mobile app to shop from the comfort of your couch.
On Dec. 1, Cyber Week kicks off with more beauty savings online, so bookmark your favorites ahead of time to see if they'll be on sale. According to a Macy's press release, there will be discounts ranging from 20 percent to a whopping 50 percent off select beauty — so fingers crossed you can stock up on essentials for yourself and strike some gifts off your shopping list while you're at it.
Rest up and prepare for the Black Friday rush, because you won't want to miss out on Macy's killer sale.
