6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
Whoa, it’s December! This is probably the last weekend of calm before a flurry of holiday parties, cookie bake-offs and secret Santa gift exchanges start to take over your life. Be sure to enjoy it and have some fun! You’ll likely be spending your entire budget this month on gifts for others, because you’re generous like that. Luckily, you can still look amazing all weekend ;) Here are six weekend makeup essentials, all $15 and under, that will fit into your holiday budget beautifully.
Don’t workweeks after a holiday feel like the longest everrrr? It’s time to go enjoy a celebratory drink just for making it through! Before leaving your nine-to-five, apply the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo ($14). It has a cherry red base and gold topcoat that will turn heads as you enter happy hour. Then, play up your eyes with some Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner ($12). Go for a fun shade like indigo to try something a little brighter and more festive for this time of year. It’s long-lasting, so it will withstand any rom-com tearjerker fest you’ve got planned later on — just saying!
YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Go ahead and pour yourself a pregame cocktail as you apply your makeup and blast some holiday tunes. It’s a celebratory time of year! With a little copper Covergirl Bombshell Shineshadow ($12) on top of your regular eye shade tonight, you’ll shine as bright as twinkle lights. Finish the look with Catrice Lashes to Kill Ultra Black Mascara ($6). Using its perfectly shaped wand, you’ll get mega volume that is as overly dramatic as your BFF (in a good way).
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Rise and shine — there are pancakes and mimosas to make you feel better about your life! Cover up last night’s damage with a dab or two of Essence Say No to Dark Circles ($3). This stuff will conceal those raccoon eyes and dark spots like a boss. If your winter-chapped lips could use some love, wait until you try the Glossier Flavored Balm Dotcom ($12). Go for the super hydrating coconut flavor that will instantly remind you of somewhere tropical and warm as you put on your heaviest coat to string up lights after brunch.
