Just like *that* we’re about halfway through April — WTF?! I swear I just figured out my winter makeup routine. But it’s already time to swap out our vampy lipsticks in favor of lilac makeup, floral print and all things vibrant + sunny. Here are six under-$15 weekend makeup essentials that’ll have you looking fresh from Friday through Sunday.



Before you jet from the office, make sure the makeup you started your day with is still looking fresh and flawless. Swirl on Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder ($7) to give your products a little refresh and eliminate any shine. Perk up your lashes with a coat of Black Radiance Relentless Volume Lash Lacquer ($5) — make sure you wiggle the wand at the base of your lash line to get some lift.



Time to take your look from zero to 100 real quick ;) Apply Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer ($12) to your cheekbones to give your face a healthy dose of color. Keep your eye makeup neutral and simple, focusing on your lashes. Then apply Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty Matte Lipstick ($12) in Power Punch, the perfect night-on-the-town red shade.



You miiiight not be feeling so hot this morning because of how fun last night was — know what I’m sayin’? That said, keep your brunch look focused on making it look like you got a full night of sleep. Apply NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer ($5) in Orange underneath your eyes to totally eliminate dark circles. Then, using a makeup sponge, apply Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer ($10) and then a light layer on the rest of your face.
