Check out these six weekend makeup essentials, all $15 and under, that’ll make Friday through Sunday easy breezy (and oh-so pretty!).
Shake off the workweek and get ready for Fri-yay night! Before heading out, apply the Sephora Shimmer Stick ($10) to your cheekbones, under your eyes and on the bridge of your nose. This creamy highlighter really makes tired-looking skin shine. Then, light it up like Major Lazer says and apply The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick ($12) in Red Siren. ‘Tis the season for looking merry and bright, right?
YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
There are only a few Saturday nights left in 2016, so might as well go a little crazy! Your eyes are key to standout party or clubbing makeup, so do ’em up right. You can’t go wrong with the NYX Professional Makeup Super Fat Eye Marker ($10). It glides on easily so you can create the perfect cat eye with a few swipes. It provides a great base for Essence Rock’n’doll Crazy XXXL Volume Mascara ($5) for some serious length and a dramatic effect.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Who needs magic to get you bottomless brunch-ready when you’ve got the Soap and Glory Hocus Focus Illuminator ($15) on deck? This super hydrating and illuminating lotion will make your pores appear smaller and even out your skin tone. To bring some warmth to your face, try cult favorite Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer ($15) to your cheekbones. It gives you just the right amount of color and has a buildable formula to boot.
