6 Makeup Essentials to Try This Weekend for Under $15
Welcome, November! I know, it’s crazy that we’re already looking forward to a new holiday (Thanksgiving, hey!) after just putting away our Halloween costumes. WELP, embrace the new season upon us — and all the awesome fall-hued makeup that goes along with it (bring on the plums, purples and browns!). If you’re in need of a fall beauty pick-me-up this weekend, here are six makeup essentials that’ll get you from Friday to Sunday flawlessly — and your wallet will love ‘em.
Happy. Hour. On. The. Mind. We know — it’s all we can think about on a Friday, too. Get in the fall spirit, pucker up and give your look an end-of-day boost with a swipe of Revlon Super Lustrous Shine Lipstick ($8) in Plum Velour. It’s a super flattering, pretty shade that is dark enough to be “fall” but not so dark that you’ll look like a totally different person. To freshen up and brighten your eye area before you head out, dot on Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer ($11) because it is hands down one of the best concealers out there and it’s super easy to stash in your purse for a quick touch up.
YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Time to rage! Consider really playing up your eyes tonight and having fun with your makeup. Since you don’t want to spend a bunch of time perfecting your eye makeup only to have it wear off before the night is over, use a primer like NYX HD Eye Shadow Base ($7) for staying power. Top it all off with a sleek cat eye — let’s face it, you can’t really go wrong with a cat eye — by using L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Liner ($10). Meow!
YOUR BRUNCH WITH THE BESTIES LOOK
What a weekend, right? Roll out of bed and don’t even think about doing a full face of makeup. Instead, focus on the mimosas and bacon that await you at brunch. Put on a brightening primer that will wake your skin up, like Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Brightening Primer ($15) so your skin is smooth and glow-y. Give your cheeks some color with Milani Baked Powder Blush ($8) and get ready to look more energized than you probably are ;)
