Congrats — you’ve made it to the weekend! Now, it’s time to kick back with family, friends and your boo by sharing next-level meals, yummy cocktails and, of course, a serious brunch. Head to each event looking and feeling your best by wearing these six weekend makeup essentials, all priced $15 and under. Trust us — your weekend makeup looks are going to be *on point.*
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
Going from nine-to-five to after-six is a lot easier than it seems. Apply ColourPop Super Shock Cheek Pearlized in Avalon ($8) like a highlighter: on the brow bones, the bridge of your nose and your cheekbones. Rather than using a brush, use your fingers to get the maximum amount of pigment onto your face. To pull the whole look together, add some Honeybee Gardens Lipstick ($13) in Risque to your lips. This classic fire-engine red gives you an instantly made-up look. Now, glow on, girl!
YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Skip the primer and add Butter London Palm Paradise Shadowclutch Wardrobe Duo ($15) directly onto your lid. These babies have primer infused right into their formula. Apply the dark green shimmer shadow to your crease and the glimmer gold onto your lid for a colorful take on the smokey eye. Then, make sure your eyeliner is on point — literally — with L.A. Cosmetics Splash Art-Ki-Tekt Slim Eyeliner Pen ($14). The super-slim tip on this liner will ensure the wing on your cat eye is flawless.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Get flawless coverage plus a shine-free finish for up to 12 hours with No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($15). Then, reach for BH Cosmetics Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale Cream Cheek and Lip Tint ($8). This product does double duty for your face — use it as a cream blush for your cheeks and then add some to your lips for a naturally pink pigment that’s just the right amount of makeup for brunch.
