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 — or several. Bottoms up, ladies! Here’s 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’re 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’ll need to freshen up post-work. Use the adorably packaged TONYMOLY Panda’s 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’Oreal 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’t be any easier thanks to the IMAN Perfect Eyeshadow Pencil ($10). The shade you’ll want for Saturday night is Seduction (obviously). Complete your eye look using the Milani Eye Tech Perfection Liquid Eye Liner ($7). The genius product’s super cool design makes it easy to hold in your hand for simple application. So smart!



There’s only one cure for the Sunday Scaries, and it’s 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. All Over Color Stick ($1) on your eyes, lips and cheekbones. The pretty Pink Lemonade shade is just $1, so you don’t have to feel bad about that $16 cocktail you drank the night before.
