Wahhh. 2016 is over already? If you came back to work this week to an overflowing inbox and an absolutely endless to-do list, you probably could use a very large cocktail right about now. Luckily, there’s the weekend to look forward to! Even if your bank account is looking a little sad at the moment, you can still partake in some post-holiday shopping. Hello, January sales! These six weekend makeup essentials are all $15 and under, so you can look good and still afford that gym membership on your resolution list.



Hopefully, your resolution list included lots of post-work, heart-healthy red wine that you start drinking TONIGHT. Get your lids ready for Fri-yay with Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer ($10). If your eye makeup always seems to come off in like, five minutes, this stuff is what you need in your life. It’s also the perfect foundation for the Bloomingdale’s Get Glowing Palette ($15) that YAS, includes two eyeshadows. There’s also two highlighters, blush, bronzer, an eye pencil and more. It’s like a one-stop shop for a can’t-mess-it-up look. You’ll be happy hour ready in no time.



Celebrate the first Saturday of the year in a big way. You’ll be ready to dance all night after applying Catrice Lashes to Kill Ultra Black Mascara ($6). It’s actually made with black diamond powder to give a dramatic, inky color and extra volume. You’ll shine bright like a diamond, obvs. Complete your look with a touch of e.l.f. Studio Blush ($3) in Tickled Pink. This peachy hue will make your cheeks glow and match your current mood about the new year.



If you order green juice at brunch, everything else you eat is considered healthy, right? Whatever — we’re getting cheese fries, right after putting on some Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Bronzer ($13). This will make you look positively sun-kissed, even in the middle of January. Continue to wish you were still on vacay with some (Malin + Goetz) Mojito Lip Balm ($14). It smells even better than waffles (no joke) and adds just a touch of shine. Perfection.
