6 Weekend Makeup Essentials Under $15
Time to let your hair down (or put it up — you do you) and get ready for the weekend! No matter what you’re celebrating — a friend’s birthday, your anniversary or just a break from having to set an alarm — we’ve got the look for you. Here are six weekend makeup essentials, all priced $15 and under, to get the weekend started right.
Perfect makeup in a pinch, AKA in your work’s bathroom or at your desk, doesn’t require the skill of Pat McGrath or a full vanity table. Give yourself a quick and easy smokey eye with Maybelline Line Express Eyeliner in Ebony Black ($6). Apply a thick line with the creamy, hyper-pigmented formula and blend it out with the contour smudger. Then, spray on some Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($14). This lightweight finishing product will make sure your makeup stays put until you’re ready to hit the pillow.
While you can use a little bit of BH Party Girl Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in Ready to Go ($8) for a sheer blue look, it’s Saturday, so go all out. Go ahead and add a lot to your eyeshadow brush for a bright, opaque pop of blue. Add Ardell Double Up Black Lashes ($6) to finish off this dramatic weekend look and really frame your eyes.
It’s time to unwind and ease into the beginning of the work week (sigh… already?!). Add some color to your cheeks with Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Brightening Baby in Pink Blush ($15). It will add a bit of radiance to your skin, making sure that no one knows just how late you’ve been out all weekend. Swipe some Essence Cosmetics BB Beauty Balm Lipgloss ($4) on your lips for a bit of color and a lot of shine. Not to mention, this lipgloss contains shea butter and vitamin E to keep your lips baby soft.
