Haaaapy holidays! Hope your Thanksgiving was filled with delicious food, hostess-proof makeup and lots and lots of good vibes from your family, friends and loved ones. While we can鈥檛 believe the holiday is already over (on to the next one, though), it doesn鈥檛 mean you have to forget about holiday-appropriate makeup *just yet*. Now鈥檚 the time to have some fun with your face, because anything goes during the holidays, right? Well, kinda: You should have fun experimenting with new colors and products while still keeping your look classic (basically, you don鈥檛 want your Grandpa commenting on your makeup). Here are six post-holiday weekend makeup essentials 鈥 each under $15 鈥 that鈥檒l keep you looking fresh after the feast is over.



You鈥檝e waited for this day since this day last year: It鈥檚 the biggest shopping day of 2015! Be prepared for a whirlwind day filled with serious shopping and catching up friends who are along for the ride with you. Since you will have a totally jam-packed day, start your routine off with Rimmel Stay Matte Primer ($7) so your makeup stays on all day + night without smudges or smears (let鈥檚 be real, you might work up a sweat!). When it comes to your lips, it鈥檚 best to K.I.S.S. (remember that saying?!) and not get all crazy trying out a vampy lip. Instead, swipe on a rosy balm like Korres Lip Balm ($12). It鈥檒l give your lips a dose of moisture and healthy color you won鈥檛 have to touch up all day.



Tonight is the night to really have fun with your look and step up your makeup game 鈥 you鈥檙e probably going to be hanging with friends who are in town (aka having your picture taken a bunch) so you need to *dazzle*. Add a few Ardell Individual Lashes ($4) to your eyes before you start shmoozing to really give them extra definition and make them pop 鈥 in a good way. Top it all off with e.l.f. Baked Highlighter ($3) to give you that I-just-ate-a-bunch-of-mashed-potatoes glow we鈥檙e all after ;)



Today鈥檚 brunch calls for a serious eye makeup game, y鈥檃ll, because you鈥檙e going to be picking up where you left off with old pals or extended family. Now is not the time to skip out on makeup. To give your eyes some depth without getting too heavy-handed with makeup on a Sunday morning, use NYX Baked Eyeshadow ($4) *wet* and line your eyes with it. It鈥檚 an interesting metallic-y gray shade that is so flattering when used sparingly. Finish off your eyes by defining your brows with Covergirl Bombshell Pow-Der Brow & Liner ($10). It鈥檚 a rad two-in-one product that you can use to both fill in your brows (IMPORTANT!) and as a powder eyeliner. Add a touch to the bottom of your lash line to make your eyes even bigger-looking.
