6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
Welcome to Christmakkah weekend. This is the first time in, like, 11 years that the two holidays have started at the same time. We say that’s reason enough for double the celebration! With all the events you’ve got going on, you’ll need plenty of fun and festive makeup to keep up. These six weekend makeup essentials, all priced $15 and under, will keep you looking celebratory until the very last gift is unwrapped.
Let’s get this holiday weekend started. Before spinning the dreidel, put on a bit of Real Purity Natural Cream Blush ($15). The yummy cinnamon color will make your cheeks pop in the glow of the menorah light. Finish your eyes off with some COVERGIRL Katy Kat Eye Mascara ($7). It gives your lashes tons of volume and is smudge-proof to last through whatever the night brings.
YOUR CHRISTMAS EVE DINNER LOOK
For Christmas dinner, it’s fun to go all out with your look and dress up. Your makeup should also look ah-mazing, of course — a smokey eye should do the trick. Use the E.L.F. Cosmetics Everyday Smoky Eyeshadow Palette ($10) to help you achieve that look. Start with the lighter colors on the inside of your lid and go darker as you work your way out, blending with a brush as you go. It’s Christmas, so you can’t go wrong with a bright pop of red on your pout. Use IMAN Lipstick ($10) in IMAN Red and you’ll be Insta-ready.
CHRISTMAS MORNING IN YOUR PAJAMAS
You’re obvs planning to spend all morning in your Christmas jammies. You still need a touch of makeup for all those family photos though. Apply the butter London On the Glow Pen ($12) in white gold on the bridge of your nose and below your brow bone to enhance your gorgeous features. You’ll get the perfect glow, no filter required. Lastly, Marcelle Lux Gloss Cream ($12) in Angel is the perfect hue of gloss. It’s sheer enough for that barely touched-up look you’re going for as you tear into your gifts.
