Black Friday beauty deals are everywhere right now. In fact, Ulta's early Black Friday sales have been up and running for weeks. And with both Amazon Black Friday deals already popping up and Sephora's best sales just around the corner, it's time to start devising your beauty shopping plan (and avoid Black Friday shopping mistakes).

If you're stumped for ideas, beauty insiders Jill Dunn and Carlene Higgins, co-hosts of Dear Media's mega-popular Breaking Beauty podcast, have your back. They advise: "Black Friday is the best time to stock up on big-ticket items. Skin-care tools like LED face masks are some of our faves to invest in — almost every skin type can benefit from these." They also recommend restocking your skin-care staples like serums and eye creams and looking out for deals on "makeup musts."

Industry expert Dana Oliver similarly shops for gadgets and gizmos around this time of year: "This is usually a great time to get good deals on high-priced beauty tools such as facial toning devices, electronic toothbrushes, shavers, curling irons, blow dryers and, yes, LED masks!"

These are the types of items they (and I) will be shopping next week — and some sale items to shop right now!

Black Friday beauty deals on devices

Like many of the 14,000+ five-star reviewers, I bought this truly excellent hair dryer last year and never looked back. It dries hair lightning fast while still being gentle and, from my experience, helps smooth frizz without a lot of time or any serious blowout skill.

$37 at Amazon

LiveMoor's budget LED mask has seven different settings, 8,100+ five-star reviews and is currently over 45% off with the added coupon.

It's not just industry experts recommending you shop beauty appliances this month — I myself invested in this gold-standard at-home microcurrent device during Black Friday last year. It's a noninvasive way to tone and firm sagging skin on the face and neck and — if used consistently (which, ahem, I do not always!) — it's been clinically proven to work and just may go on mega-sale at Ulta and Amazon next week.

$350 at Amazon

Black Friday beauty deals on skin-care staples

I have met exactly zero people who have tried Tatcha products and walked away unimpressed. Their version of the classic eye cream does double-duty: soothing and softening skin while also working as a makeup primer — helping shadows and liners stay put throughout the day. 

$51 at Tatcha

Starting next week, you can score an ample vat of First Aid Beauty's limited-edition face cream at half its normal cost — a wee $25. Just an excellent deal from a killer brand. 

$25 at Ulta

I'm on my second bottle of this dermis-transforming snail serum. I know, you're thinking this is weird, but read my review, it's just that good, and this is the lowest it's been in months.

$17 at Amazon

Delicate under-eye skin needs extra nourishment, which is why experts often recommend nighttime treatments applied before you go to bed that work while you snooze. This peptide-rich, eye-skin-fortifying cream has wracked up more than 1,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, where it is currently over 60% off!

$27 at Amazon

Later in the week, all of the Kiehl's products will be 30% off at Sephora but this clinically-proven brightening face serum is heavily discounted now.

$39 at Sephora

RoC is one of the few drugstore brands that I consistently trust with my money and this set — on sale for nearly 50% off!— is particularly good. It includes the brand's famous retinol eye cream and its high-quality vitamin C serum too. 

$28 at Amazon

Ulta's currently offering 40% off select moisturizers, including this vitamin-C-infused version by top-rated brand Sunday Riley.

$39 at Ulta

The Elemis line is 25% off at Ulta and, though this is not their most popular product — that award falls to the fantastic Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm — for my money, there's little better bang for buck than an exfoliating, resurfacing pad and these leave skin super smooth and soft.

$48 at Ulta

The holy grail of modern skin-care products, this award-winning serum has topped beauty editor "best of" lists since 2005.

$170 at Walmart

Black Friday beauty deals on "makeup musts"

The "No. 1 SPF foundation in America," according to the brand, this full-coverage cream will be down to just $33 during Ulta's sale. It contains hyaluronic acid to plump up skin as it evens out overall tone.

$33 at Ulta

The Italian brand's known mostly for its designer clothes, but in-the-know beauty experts swear by this skin-surface-smoothing foundation, the coverage of which can't be beat.

$55 at Amazon

Starting today, you can take 30% off the price of all MAC products, including this mega-lengthening mascara.

$19 at Ulta

This creamy, versatile classic blush-stick formula is perfect for giving subtle color to dull winter skin. 

$24 at Amazon

We've got our eye out for upcoming deals on this concealer stick that the Breaking Beauty co-hosts call a "makeup must." The creamy, vitamin E-infused formula won't crease or cake, making it an ideal product for mature skin.

$60 at Sephora
