Another week in the books, y’all! Congrats. It’s FriYAY and I’m sure we’re all welcoming the weekend with open arms — and open minds when it comes to what makeup to wear this weekend. Whether you need to take things to the next level tonight after you leave the office (hello, bronzey shimmer) or want your eyelash game to be *on point* with a new mascara, we’ve got you covered. Just make sure you set your alarm clock for brunch on Sunday — you have a standing appointment with bacon + your besties, right? Here’s what three makeup essentials you should wear this weekend:

If you haven’t heard of Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks ($46), you need to pay attention. They’re one of the best multi-purpose products out there if you ask me. A Shimmer Brick of your color choice (there are a bunch of different shades) will be your savior on Friday when you’ve gotta step up your game from office-appropriate to a nighttime look. You can add definition to your eyes (the dark shades work well wet as eyeliner), highlight the high points of your face and use the pinkier shades to warm up your cheeks. Yas.

Eyelashes are everything to some people. They can really change your entire look, and when it comes to a big night on the town, many people think the bigger + bolder, the better. That’s what you’ll get with the new L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara ($11). I’m sure you’ve already heard of (or used) the classic Voluminous mascara, which is a staple in SO many people’s beauty toolkits. This new version has a primer on one end and curved brush on the other to kick your fringe into even higher gear.

Sometimes, the last thing you want to do is put on a whole face of makeup for brunch. It’s nice to have a quick, light makeup routine down for times like this when you want to look fresh-faced but not done-up. The Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick ($22) is *perfect* for this easy brunch look. It’s sheer enough that you don’t have to worry about messing up the application, but it also gives your lips some healthy color.
