Another week is behind us, everyone! I want to be the first to congratulate you on making it to FriYAY. You should celebrate 鈥 no, really, you should do it big this weekend 鈥 one of the last before the holiday rush, as if you needed reminding. That should include your makeup too. To help you make sure you鈥檙e ready for post-work drinks on Friday, your Saturday night out and brunch on Sunday (looking like you didn鈥檛 even go out the night before ;) we鈥檝e handpicked six under $15 makeup essentials to get you through the weekend.

YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK

After a long day at the office (especially in Q4, ugh), your eyes might need some waking up before you walk (run?) out the door in search of a cocktail鈥 or three. Eliminate any shine that鈥檚 gathered on your face throughout the day with a mattifying powder like Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder ($4). This is a product that you would get a lot of use out for midday touchups at your desk. Then, swipe on Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow & Liner ($14) to give your eyes some oomph. This double-duty product acts as both a shadow and smokey liner, so it鈥檚 a great on-the-go option 鈥 keep this baby in your purse all week long.

YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK

You know it鈥檚 going to be a good night out when you pregame while doing your makeup (oh, just me?). Use a multi-colored blush-highlighter-hybrid like NYX Mosaic Powder Blush ($4) to give yourself a glow, a pop of color on your cheeks and a touch of shine. Just sweep your brush across 鈥榚m all for an airbrushed effect, or hone in on a specific shade you鈥檙e feeling. To step up your night-on-the-town makeup even more, use a colored mascara like Butter London ElectraLash Mascara ($15) in Indigo Punk, which is a really fun blue-purple hue. Just a single swipe on your upper lashes will give your eyes a fun sparkle.

YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES聽LOOK

Open up your eyes without a lot of makeup for brunch 鈥 you need to look alive, awake, alert and enthusiastic even if you鈥檙e not. Use a nude, waterproof eyeliner like Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Nude ($5) on your waterline to brighten the whites of your eyes. Then, top off your look with a bold lip like Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss Lip Tar ($9) in a deep shade like Dekadent (a 鈥渢ranslucent crushed blueberry鈥). It鈥檚 a stay-put color that won鈥檛 fade as fast as you sip your coffee.
