Between the election and coming home from work in the dark every single night, it certainly has been a looong week. We all could use a drink 鈥 or several. Bottoms up, ladies! Here鈥檚 to a weekend of wine, cocktails and mimosas. As for your makeup, you can plan to go a bit darker when this time of year rolls around. We鈥檙e talking deep purples, maroons and navy blue hues. Here are six weekend makeup essentials, all priced under $15, for your Friday-through-Sunday plans.



Whether your Friday evening plans include dinner and a movie or something a little crazier, you鈥檒l need to freshen up post-work. Use the adorably packaged TONYMOLY Panda鈥檚 Dream Brightening Eye Base ($12) as a base for your under-eye concealer. Your eyes will look illuminated and not at all panda-like ;) Then apply L鈥橭real Infallible Lip Paints ($10). The deep purple shade, Bewitching Bordeaux, is ideal for witching hour. Or, you know, wine.



Getting ready to go out on the town couldn鈥檛 be any easier thanks to the IMAN Perfect Eyeshadow Pencil ($10). The shade you鈥檒l want for Saturday night is Seduction (obviously). Complete your eye look using the Milani Eye Tech Perfection Liquid Eye Liner ($7). The genius product鈥檚 super cool design makes it easy to hold in your hand for simple application. So smart!



There鈥檚 only one cure for the Sunday Scaries, and it鈥檚 waffles. Get ready for brunch starting with some Marcelle CC Concealer + Corrector ($14) that will cover your puffy eyes and red spots while you sip on some water. Then use the e.l.f.聽All Over Color Stick ($1) on your eyes, lips and cheekbones. The pretty Pink Lemonade shade is just $1, so you don鈥檛 have to feel bad about that $16 cocktail you drank the night before.
