Happy weekend! June gloom is definitely here (in San Francisco, at least!), while elsewhere people are suffering from an equally brutal heat wave. So balance out the gross weather with some fresh beauty looks that’ll brighten up those dreary vibes. Here are six weekend makeup essentials under $15 each that you can count on.
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
Kick off Friday evening with a refreshed out-of-office look that translates well into night. Apply LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick ($8) to your lips to instantly add some bold color to your face. After that, focus on defining your eyes with The Body Shop 2-in-1 Smoky Gel Liner & Brow Definer ($13), which is a legit dual-use product. Use it as an eyeliner on the outer corners of your eyes, then lightly fill in your brows to frame them.
YOUR NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Keep Saturday night all about flawless skin and incred lashes. Apply a foundation that’s made for a night full of selfies like Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Makeup ($14) — this stuff actually contains light-filtering ingredients that make your skin look like it has a perfect Instagram filter on it. Top off your look with a couple coats of Covergirl Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara ($11) and you’re good to go!
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Smooth on L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream ($11) to blur imperfections on your face and wake up your skin. This stuff is lightweight but gives enough coverage to even out your skin tone. After that, apply Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blush ($7) to the apples of your cheeks for some healthy color.
