6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
Ummmm, May 1 is the day after tomorrow — WUT?! We’re hopefully past those pesky April showers and having to rely on waterproof makeup products 24/7, and a brand spankin’ new month is upon us. Usher in May flowers with a fresh face and weekend makeup essentials that cost $15 or less.
Upgrade your daytime desk look with an edgy after hours-approved vibe with a swipe of Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner ($14) on the outer corners of your eyes. The slight shimmer will instantly brighten and define your eyes. Apply TOPSHOP Lips ($12) in a punchy shade like Straight Ace to your pucker before you head out the door — it’ll instantly take your look to the next level.
YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Saturday night calls for seriously flawless (and fierce) makeup. Start things off by applying a one-stop-shop palette like Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Kit ($7). Use the blush on the apples of your cheeks, the bronzer on your lower cheekbones and the highlighter on your upper cheekbones — simple as that. Coat your lashes in L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara ($9), and get the two-for-one bonus effect of tightlining your upper lash line.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
What. A. Weekend. Don’t spend a ton of time fussing over your brunch look today. Brighten up your face with FLOWER Skin Radiance Face & Body Illuminator ($13) so your skin looks like you got a full night’s sleep ;) Top it off with N.Y.C. Get It All Lip Color ($3) in a shade that leans on the neutral side.
