6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
The holidays are T-minus one week away! If your shopping list is still a mile long and your event schedule is nonstop (those “yes” RSVPs seemed like a good idea at the time), girl, it’s going to be a busy weekend. There’s little time to primp and prep, so time is of the essence. You’ll need some easy makeup that will transition from the mall to that holiday cocktail party to brunch. Luckily, these six weekend makeup essentials are all priced $15 and under — and they’re totally gorgeous. Get ready to flawlessly power through the rest of 2016!
Buh-bye, office. You’ve got places to be. On your way to your first gift exchange of the night, apply the mini-sized Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Super Curling and Lifting Mascara Mini ($12). It’s water-resistant and promises to lift and curl your lashes for up to 12 hours — AKA until dawn. After that, sweep on a bit of e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick ($3) in Wine Tour. A dark and devious color like this will definitely start the weekend off on a tasteful note.
YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
An epic Saturday night out post-six-hour holiday shopping marathon? You’ve totally got this! The key is to play up your eyes. Try the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick ($2) in Black Betrayal. This smoldering color gives you a quick smokey eye without any complicated brush techniques. Your lids will look rockin’ when you finish them off with INGLOT Liquid Eyeliner ($12). It’s ultra fine and dries in a snap, so you’ll be out the door in no time.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
So, can we get a weekend to recover from this weekend? Please? Hopefully, your brunch is served with coffee and more coffee. All you’ll need this morning to wake your complexion up is Sephora Collection Colorful Cheek Ink Gel ($14) in Dahlia. The warm berry color will give just the right pop of color to those pretty apples. Then, keep it simple with a touch of TEMPTU Color True Lipgloss ($12). It’s clear, so it looks bomb over any color or on its own. Done and done.
