6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
The year is already in full-on #hustle mode, and you’ve been scramblin’ all week — we get it. Take a deep breath and repeat after us: T.G.I.F! Let’s take full advantage of this whole weekend thing with a happy hour, a trip to the movies (Hidden Figures, anyone?) and cocktails galore. Whatever you’ve got in the works, you need some easy go-to makeup essentials to get you there. These six weekend makeup essentials are all $15 and under to get you from post-work drinks to Sunday funday.
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
Don’t miss a beat as you skip out of the office and off to happy hour. Your overworked eyes will magically come back to life after you use the long-wearing Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner ($13). Go for the gorg brown “espresso” color for an extra jolt of oomph. You’ll be selfie-ready after finishing the look with some J. Cat Beauty Pout-Holic Lipstick ($5). The pretty pink “like for like” color is guaranteed to get you some Insta love.
YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Whether you’re heading out for a date with your boo or dinner and drinks with the gals, you want to bring it tonight. Play up your eyes with Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow ($14). Whatever your skin tone, you’ll love the rosy shade of “black orchard.” Plus you’ve got a secret weapon, Rimmel Wonderlash Lift Me Up Mascara ($8), at your disposal. You’ll get the dramatic, long lashes you’re after with the first coat.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Time to dish about all of last night’s antics over a few filled-to-the-brim bloodies. For brunch, a natural, glowing look is probs what you’re after. You’ll get there with just a touch of color for your cheeks that the Dandelion Brightening Baby-Pink Blush Mini ($15) delivers. It’s travel-sized and purse-friendly too. If you loved Lip Smackers back in the day, you’ll go bananas for the grown up version, The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick ($15). It smells amazing and the fun “raisin the roof” color gives you all the right vibes and a light hue.
