Happy holidays, y’all! It’s bananas that it’s already Christmas — it feels like we just finished eating Thanksgiving dinner. While lots of us are traveling this week, soaking up the coziness that is relaxing at home and stuffing our faces with the finest holiday food this time of year has to offer, it’s no time to forget about your holiday weekend makeup routine (especially because Christmas is on *Friday* this year!). Here are six weekend makeup must-haves — each less than $15 — that’ll keep you lookin’ fab on Christmas and beyond.



Your night will probably start off with a hearty dinner (isn’t Christmas dinner MAGICAL?) and family time, which means there will be lots of photo ops — you’ve gotta look on point. Bring out your eyes with a pretty eyeshadow palette like Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette in Roses ($13) and you’ll have all the shades you need to create a natural but defined look. Top it off with a clean, clump-free mascara like Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara ($9) and you’re good to go!



Tonight is the night you need to look epically bomb, because who knows who you’ll be running into when you’re out on the town (doesn’t it always seem to be your ex-boyfriend though? Ugh). Swipe on Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Eyeliner Trio in Natural Nude ($12) to make your eyes pop and use ‘em all for a multi-dimensional vibe that’s appropriate for a night out. Because your eyes will steal the show, keep your lips a neutral color with Wet n Wild Natural Blend Lip Shimmer ($2).



There’s nothing like a recovery brunch with your hometown besties. Keep your makeup fresh, pretty and natural with Sonia Kashuk Chic Defining Lighting Stick ($11). This product “glides on to mimic natural light reflections for a lifting effect,” so you’ll get a natural highlight without looking glittery or shimmery. Finish off your look with a lash-boosting mascara like Revlon Lash Potion Mascara ($5) that does as much good for your lashes as it makes them look!
