Happy weekend! Get outside this Saturday + Sunday and soak up the sun (with a healthy layer of SPF on, of course), rage with your pals and then recap it all over sizzling bacon, sweet pancakes and *strong* mimosas at brunch. Here are six weekend makeup essentials — each costing no more than $15 — that’ll get you through the next few days looking flawless.
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
Right before you clock out for the day + send that last email, apply a berry-hued hydrating lip gloss like HAN Moisturizing Lip Gloss ($14) in Raspberry Chardonnay. It’ll give your pucker a bit of natural color without overdoing it. Warm your cheeks up with a light application of PALLADIO Matte Blush ($7). A little blush goes a loooong way, y’all.
YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Tonight, it’s all about your eyes. Start by adding some slightly shimmery definition to your eyes with BareMinerals Glimmer Eyeshadow ($15) in Sex Kitten — this is one of my favorite eyeshadows of all time! It’s a universally flattering shade that is gorgeous worn dry or wet for added oomph. Top it off with a lengthening mascara like Boots No7 Extreme Length Mascara ($9).
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
On Sundays, it’s all about your skin. Even out your skin tone and blur imperfections with L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream ($11). Apply it with a makeup sponge or with (clean!) fingers. Next, apply KIKO MILANO Glowing Pearl Cushion Highlighter ($10) to the high points of your face for a dewy glow.
