Can we talk about this cold weather? It was raining, windy and generally unpleasant in San Francisco this week, and it left us feeling a little blah. The weekend being mere hours away is making it all worth it though — and is putting a little pep back in our step. Let’s forget about this week’s gloomy weather by brightening up our look this weekend with six under-$15 weekend makeup essentials. What rain?!

YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK

The first week back at the office after a holiday is undoubtedly a doozy — that’s why you’ve been looking forward to tonight’s post-work dinner so much. Freshen up before you head out by sweeping on the coordinated eyeshadow colors in the Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow ($10) palette — you can also use the darker shades wet and use them as liner. Finish your refreshed look with a swipe of Milani Moisture Lock Coconut Oil Infused Lip Treatment ($8). This stuff basically combines a conditioning balm and pretty lip gloss into one must-have product.

YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK

Turn up the volume on your look tonight by focusing on a super strong brow game + radiant skin. Start by using Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Drama Pomade Crayon ($10) to sculpt and tame your brows — this double-duty product does a lot for your brows in no time. Then, focus on getting your glow on with L’Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Highlighter ($13). This nifty pen-like tool adds a soft glow anywhere you apply it, so you can use it to highlight your cheekbones, brow bones and the bridge of your nose.

YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK

Roll out of bed, throw on your brunch uniform and get yourself ready for mimosas and great conversation. Keep your makeup light and fresh today. Bring a touch of color to your look with Nivea A Kiss of Care & Color ($5) lip balm and then top it off with two coats of a good-for-your-lashes mascara like Almay One Coat Multi-Benefit Mascara ($8).
