6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
It’s finally the weekend! While the weather right now is straight up unpredictable (if you live in SF, you know what I’m talkin’ about!), there is something you *can* control: how fierce your makeup will look all weekend. Here are six weekend makeup essentials — under $15 each — that will get you from Friday to Sunday flawlessly.
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
Toss a punchy lip product into your purse before you head out the door to instantly amp up your look. We love Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Mini ($8) for its compact size and strong color payoff. Define your eyes with Pacifica Natural Eye Pencil ($11) in Fringe. Because this color is brown rather than black, it will automatically step up your look without appearing too harsh.
YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Make your eyes sparkle and shine tonight by using a coppery eyeshadow as a brightening liner. Dip a wet, angled eyeliner brush into J.CAT BEAUTY Blinkle Shimmer Eyeshadow ($6) in Honey Amber and line your upper lash line with it to make your peepers pop. Then, contour your face with Maybelline FaceStudio Master Contour & Highlight V-Shape Duo Stick ($10). It’s a two-in-one product that features both a dark contouring shade and a light highlight shade for your convenience.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
Use your go-to eyelash curling hack to lift your lashes up from the root for a wide-eyed look. After that, swipe on 2B COLOURS A True Story Black Mascara ($7) to open up your whole eye area and really emphasize your lashes. After that, perk up your cheeks with some healthy color — this will pull your whole look together. Apply Boots No7 Perfectly Bronzed Mosaic Bronzer ($13) to your cheeks and you’re done!
