Black Friday came extremely early this month…it’s not yet even Thanksgiving and I already feel like I’m playing catch up with all of the deals circulating the Internet! Consequently, today’s post offers a beauty and style shopping guide that aims to make your online pursuits as smooth and productive as possible. 

Now is the time to support your favorite businesses and brands–who need us more than ever–and enjoy some abundant savings in the process.

A Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping Guide, Beauty Professor Style.

Kindly scroll on for a curated list of suggestions to help streamline your Cyber Week (and beyond!) shopping experience as well as a major BP announcement and the Bottom Line…

On to the sales!

Style Notes for the look above include:

  • Spanx Faux Leather Leggings: These leggings receive so much wear in my life. They are high waisted yet comfortable, have a chic leather sheen and are breathable (important with any “leather” look garment). Plus, they are currently on sale!
  • Men’s Light Denim Shirt: Sometimes I feel like my wardrobe is a rotating array of denim shirts…there is just something so classic about them that I’ve amassed quite a few. I prefer a men’s cut for the relaxed and oversized energy it conveys and this super light wash is an interesting twist on traditional chambray.
  • Wendy Glez Brami (also shown HERE): Recently, I discovered the Wendy Glez line and love everything I’ve tried thus far. The clothing is ethically and sustainably produced in small batches in Los Angeles and the style is so modern yet casual. This striped brami (bra/cami hybrid) is lightweight yet supportive and looks cute with button downs and cardigans. Use code RACHELANISE for 15% off site wide.
  • UGGS Classic II: I received these as a gift last winter and put them on my feet the second that temperatures drop below 65 degrees (California girl to the core!). They feel like warm clouds on your feet…so good, I even bought a matching pair for Joey.

Viseart Petit Fours Collection | A Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping GuideThe glorious Viseart Petit Fours Collection from Beautylish

// SALES I’M Currently Shopping // Evidently, Black Friday and Cyber Monday started earlier this week (or month, for that matter) so there are many sales already in full swing…here are some of my carefully edited recommendations:

Armani Beauty:

Major discounts on Black Friday (sign up for notifications HERE) and 25% off on Cyber Monday with code CYBER25…I suggest the brilliant Power Fabric Foundation Balm (reviewed countless times on BP), Lip Maestro Freeze in Cold Nuda (the perfect peachy pink) and the Neo Nude Compact Foundation (which gives the most ethereal coverage and glow).

Au Naturale:

Save 25% off all orders with code BFCM25, 30% off orders of $100+ with code BFCM30 and 40% off orders of $150+ with code BFCM40. I recommend the genius Zero Gravity Foundation Stick (my match is Mallorca), High Lustre Lip Gloss in Magnolia and, of course, the lovely gifting possibilities in the Holiday Shop. The entire brand is ultra clean and sustainable and ranks amongst my favorite!


Signing up for early access to the Black Friday sale can be done HERE. If it’s anything like last year, expect steep discounts on luxury beauty and skincare. If the new Viseart Petit Fours Palettes are on your radar, here are some swatches to help you make your decision. The shadows are pigmented and buttery with no fallout and crease-free, long wear performance. I am partial to Praline…which one is your favorite?
