Cheers to the weekend, amirite? We’ve blasted through this week and now, it’s time to celebrate by cheersing with your besties, dancing the night away and then dishing about it all at brunch — that’s what weekends are for. Here are six weekend makeup essentials — each costing less than $15 (!) — you can count on to look your best.


Right before you bounce for dinner and drinks, brighten up your eye area with L’Oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Concealer ($13). This product will wake up your under eyes and conceal any dark circles, so it’s a great end of day pick-me-up. Apply FLOWER Transforming Touch Powder-to-Creme Blush ($14) to your cheeks to give them a healthy glow. This stuff actually hydrates your skin as you wear it — score!


Start your Saturday night makeup by creating a flawless face with NYX Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation ($10). You can apply this stuff in one minute flat: just draw it on and blend with a makeup sponge. Add color to your lips and cheeks with a double-duty product like Chosungah 22 So Tiny Lip & Cheek Face Color ($14).


Wake up and smell the… mimosas! It’s time for brunch. Use a brightening eyeliner like Pixi Extra Eye Bright Liner ($14) to perk up tired eyes in a snap. Keep the rest of your face low-key and just apply a hydrating lip product like Milk Makeup X UO Lip Salve ($14).
