We鈥檙e in the final stretch of the month 鈥 doesn鈥檛 it feel like October 1 was yesterday? Crazy. Halloween is right around the corner, so you鈥檙e probs stressing about your costume (makeup included) and how to successfully attend all the parties you鈥檝e been invited to (lucky you!). Your jam-packed social calendar means you really have to be prepared to quickly transform your normal daytime look into something that鈥檚 appropriate for a late-night shindig. That鈥檚 why keeping these essentials on hand as you venture out this weekend is *key*. Here are three weekend makeup essentials that will keep you looking fresh from Friday to Sunday:

WHAT MAKEUP TO WEAR FRIDAY NIGHT: YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK

It鈥檚 been a LONG week, right? The last quarter of the year is always extra hard for everyone, it seems, so keep things low key when it comes to your Friday night makeup. Since your face makeup is already done from this morning, you should focus on bringing out a feature that鈥檚 easy to take to the next level with minimal effort: your lips. Put down the basic lip balm and pick up Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain ($9). The shades Romantic and Adore are gorgeous, deep colors that are perfect for fall. The formula of these balm-stain hybrids is awesome 鈥 it鈥檚 super moisturizing and doesn鈥檛 leave your pucker feeling dry and cakey.

WHAT MAKEUP TO WEAR SATURDAY NIGHT: YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK

Time to rage. You鈥檝e gathered your girls, your favorite playlist is bumping and you鈥檙e *ready* to take on the night! Now, let鈥檚 make sure your look reflects that ;) A really fun way to amp up your makeup is to put some subtle color on your eyes 鈥 and we鈥檙e not talking about eyeshadow. Colored mascara is your BFF tonight, because it can be subtle enough that you won鈥檛 have to change your entire makeup routine around it but still punchy enough that it makes your eyes really pop. You can choose any color you鈥檙e feeling 鈥 NYX鈥檚 Color Mascara ($7) has a bunch of fun options 鈥 or choose a shade that complements your eye color. Get ready to bat your eyelashes ALL night long!

WHAT MAKEUP TO WEAR SUNDAY: YOUR BRUNCH WITH YOUR BESTIES LOOK

Well damn. The weekend is over in the blink of a colorfully accented eye. It鈥檚 Sunday morning, you鈥檙e slowly waking up and thinking about what today鈥檚 brunch uniform will be 鈥 makeup included. You need to look fresh-faced but not overdone, and honestly, who wants to take the time to do a full face of makeup when it鈥檚 your day off from doing just that? Enter Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water ($42). It鈥檚 a new type of BB cream that鈥檚 much lighter than what you鈥檙e probably used to 鈥 it feels *so* silky on your skin 鈥 but still gives you nice coverage. You鈥檒l look glow-y and healthy, but your skin can still breathe through it. It鈥檚 buildable and moisturizing, and a little goes a long way.
