We still have a couple of weeks before Memorial Day weekend sales officially kick off, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a head start on planning our long weekend of shopping, right? Though we have to wait just a bit longer to actually nab these impressive savings, eager shoppers can get excited about two things: having that one Monday off from work to scour all of the online beauty sales that’ll be available soon enough.
Here’s some good news: Many of the sales start before the actual weekend hits and last through Monday, May 31 (or even later), so get your clicker finger ready.
