6 Weekend Makeup Essentials for Under $15
Guys! The weekend is here — wahoo! We’re also already halfway through the first month of 2016, which is crazy. You should probably celebrate this milestone with a decadent dinner on Friday night followed by a night on the town on Saturday (epic makeup included), followed by a much-needed boozy breakfast (jk def more like brunch) on Sunday. Here are six weekend makeup essentials — each no more than $15 — to get you from Friday to Sunday.
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
For a quick pick-me-up before dinner, swipe on e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder ($3) to your cheekbones (the bronzer) and the apples of your cheeks (the blush). The blush will instantly refresh your look while the bronzer will give your face a bit of definition. After that, apply Sephora Collection Color Reveal Lip Balm ($13) to give your pucker a touch of natural color (this stuff actually self-adjusts to give you a customized hue) and hydrate like woah.
YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
It’s time to paint the town purple and have fun with a coordinated look that stars this color! Start with sweeping on a super pretty purple blush (it goes on sheer, don’t worry!) like ColourPop Blush ($8) in Rain. To bring a touch of purple hue to your eyes, use HAN Skin Care Cosmetics ($13) in Taupey Plum over your lid. If you want to kick things up a notch, dip an eyeliner brush in water and use this as liner too.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Open your eyes, throw on your go-to brunch ‘fit and apply Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream SPF 20 ($15) to wake up your skin. Keep your look fresh-faced today and focus on your lashes since your skin is taken care of thanks to the BB cream. Apply Milani Length in Seconds Lash Extension Fibers ($8) before you apply your regular mascara and your lashes will totally distract from those I-have-barely-slept circles under your eyes ;)
