Don't be fooled into thinking that the biggest shopping days of the year are Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. In recent years, that has all changed thanks to the UK's adoption of the U.S. events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Traditionally, Black Friday is an in-store shopping event that takes place across many different types of outlets, and Cyber Monday is where you shop similar discounts online.
Now that the UK market has cottoned on to this purchasing frenzy, we too have many discounts that take place in many shops—online and in real life. We know that the Byrdie reader is a true beauty obsessive, but it can be hard to navigate so many of the sales and offers around. Which is why we've hunted down the best deals. From incredible designer fragrance bargains to markdowns on high-end beauty appliances, we guarantee you'll find a few Christmas presents as well as a few (or many) things for you, too. Click through our gallery for the best Cyber Monday deals today.
