Hopefully you鈥檙e feeling rested up from the holiday break, because there鈥檚 one last celebration to contend with to send 2016 out with a bang. We鈥檙e talking about New Year鈥檚 Eve, of course! Sequins are optional this Saturday, but sparkly, OTT makeup that makes you look ah-mazing is not. Don鈥檛 worry 鈥 you鈥檝e totally got this covered. These six weekend makeup essentials are all $15 and under, so you can save your cash for an extra round of bubbles before the ball drops.



It鈥檚 going to be a wild weekend, so why not ease into it with some pre-celebratory cocktails? Keep your makeup simple tonight with the Makeup Revolution The One Blush Stick ($4). You can use it to add a subtle color to both your cheeks and lips in one fell swoop. Then get (your lashes) pumped for the weekend with some COVERGIRL LashBlast Bombshell Mascara ($9). It鈥檚 water-resistant and has a two-part system that promises tons of volume for whatever fun you鈥檝e got planned later.



Pop the bubbly and get ready to say buh bye to 2016 in style. New Year鈥檚 Eve makeup is all about OTT glitter and glam. Achieve the perfect sparkly eye base with聽J. Cat Beauty Shimmery Powder ($3). Everyone else will be sporting gold, but the super pretty rose gold hue will stand out. Wear it alone or layered for a more dramatic look. Then be sure to get your pout ready for a midnight make-out sesh with a coat of Rimmel Provocolips Lip Color ($6) in Kiss Fatal. The pretty purple color is long-lasting, so you鈥檒l still be covered come 2017.



So. Much. Ouch. That ringing in your head probably wasn鈥檛 how you imagined ringing in this year. Look on the bright side, though: Just a quick makeup refresh will get you brunch-ready 鈥 swearsies. Replenish your lips from all the work they did last night with some healing Peripera Butter Pang ($9). It鈥檚 hydrating and tinted so you鈥檒l look like you made an effort. You鈥檒l also be thrilled that the NYX Cosmetics Invincible Fullest Coverage Foundation ($12) exists. It will cover all your flaws until after waffles, so you can put off getting to those resolutions just a bit longer.
