We love how President’s Day tends to sneak up on us—before you know it, you’re pleasantly surprised with a long weekend and the chance to sleep in an extra day. But one of the best things about the holiday is that it's filled with incredible online sales. If you're a recently engaged bride, we highly recommend you check out this year’s best beauty sales. While you’re probably focusing on nailing down the big details like your wedding venue and dress, it’s equally important to start a beauty regime well before your wedding.
