6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
Even though we’re more than halfway through March (crazy!), we’re just warming up to springtime makeup: dewy skin, a peachy glow and rosy pink lips all included. Here are six weekend makeup essentials under $15 each that’ll help you kick off this seasonal beauty transition without breaking the bank.
After working all day, your makeup might be in need of a major refresh — especially around your eye area. Swipe on Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer ($14) underneath your eyes in a triangle shape (with the point facing downward toward your chin) to brighten and lift the whole area. After you’ve lightened things up, create some definition on your face with NYC Sun ‘n’ Bronze Bronzing Powder ($5). It has just the right amount of pigment, so your cheekbones will be highlighted without looking overly contoured.
YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
On Saturday night, amplify your look with some serious color. Apply a hydrating lipstick like Stowaway Cosmetics Creme Lipstick ($15) to pump up the pigment on your pucker. Beyond the bright hues from this line, these products are actually designed to be smaller than average, which makes them perfect to throw in a night-on-the-town clutch. Brighten up your cheeks with Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush ($8). The powder-to-gel formula gives off a sheer but buildable color that you can adjust based on the intensity you’re after.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Kick back on Sunday, and keep your brunch makeup look fairly fuss-free. Even out your skin tone and blur imperfections with Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer ($14), which can be applied with a makeup sponge or with your fingers in a pinch. After that, apply Tony Moly Bbo Bbo Lip Balm ($10) to your pout to provide moisturization like whoa and a sweet honey taste.
