Welcome, weekend! After plowing through this week’s obligations, it’s time to seriously let loose — but make sure you dedicate some time to chill TF out. It’s all about balance, you know? Here are six weekend makeup essentials under $15 each that will get you from Friday to Sunday beautifully.
YOUR DESK-TO-DINNER LOOK
Toss a tinted balm into your purse before you head out the door for work — it’ll come in handy when it’s EOD and time to freshen up. Avon mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat ($11) comes in eight punchy shades and promises to seriously moisturize your pucker, making it a perfect after-work pick-me-up. After that, line your upper lash line with a shimmery shadow — use wet for extra oomph. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow ($8) in Amber Rush is a universally flattering hue that amps up your look with just a bit of product.
YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT O.U.T. LOOK
Tonight, it’s all about creating a rosy, smoked-out eye makeup vibe. Keep the rest of your makeup neutral so your eyes are the focus. Use the darker shades from the Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Palette ($12) in The Blushed Nudes to create a smoldering look — this palette has everything you need. Top it off with a swipe of e.l.f. Waterproof Eyeliner Pen ($2) to further define your eyes without any smudging whatsoever.
YOUR BRUNCH WITH BESTIES LOOK
You can’t go to brunch without a strong brow game, y’all. Apply Milani Easy Brow Automatic Pencil ($5) to your brows to bring out their shape and then brush through them with the spooli. After that, use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter CC Correcting Cream SPF 15 ($13) on your face to blur imperfections while still letting your skin breathe. This stuff is super light and is the perfect option for a sheer wash of makeup on a lazy Sunday ;)
