6 Weekend Makeup Essentials for Under $15
It’s Super Bowl weekend! Even if you’re not a big sports fan, your off-duty days call for makeup that’ll make you stand out from the crowd — and that’s whether you’re at a football game, watching touchdowns happen on your couch or partying in a club. Here are six weekend makeup essentials, each costing less than $15, that’ll leave you looking fab as you cheer on your favorite team or just hang around for the game-day pita dips.
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
Refresh your daytime, deskside look so it has that Friday night stamp of approval — aka a candlelit glow and defined eye. Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush & Contour Palette ($10) is a one-stop-shop for your blush, contour and eyeshadow needs — the colors are gorgeous and super versatile, making it a great product for end-of-day touch ups. After you’re glowing, line your eyes with L’Oreal Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner ($9), which has a super smooth formula. Getting a perfect cat eye is simple with this stuff (trust me, it’s been my go-to since high school!).
YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Start your Saturday night out look with the assurance that your makeup won’t budge all night. Slather on ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer ($13) to smooth out your skin and create a perfect base for the rest of your look. Since your skin will be looking flawless, focus the rest of your look on a punchy lip color. Apply a couple layers of J.Cat Beauty Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain ($6), which is a product that’s somewhere between a lipstick, gloss and a stain.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Sunday brunch means it’s time to put your best face forward and recap with your besties — this one can also be considered a Superbowl pregame. Give your cheeks some color with NYX Ombre Blush ($10), a product that gives you options in shades thanks to its gradient effect. Swipe on Kardashian Beauty Stroke of Midnight Mascara ($10) to keep your lashes black-as-night and curled. Go team!
