We know how it works: Friday afternoon rolls around and it’s basically impossible to do anything but watch the clock tick sluggishly while images of weekend freedom dance though your mind. If you’re like us, you also spend a hefty amount of time considering the beauty looks you’ll be donning in your downtime. Goodbye hurried, essentials-only morning makeup routine, hello evening-long-sipping-wine-as-we-go primping sessions. Since the best beauty exploration happens when you have those precious extra moments, here are three easy beauty upgrades to try out this weekend.
1. Up Your Lash Game
Repeat after us: fake eyelashes are my friend. If you’ve never been comfortable rocking the faux lash believe us when we say it’s much easier than it looks, and the added length and volume make a huge difference. Lush lashes look fabulous with any beauty look, from subtle to full-on glamorous, and they have this uncanny ability to make us feel instantly sexy and confident. Check out this post for a complete guide to applying fake lashes like a pro.
We’re not ashamed to admit that we’ve been labeled “Lipstick Junkies” in the past, so trying a new lip color on the weekends is naturally a must. We wouldn’t even judge you if you planned your whole outfit around a lipstick… we’ve done it (obviously). This fall our lipstick-loving hearts are overwhelmed with colors to obsess over—burgundy, plum and scorching red to name a few. Pair your bold lip with strong brows and neutral eye makeup for a chic, modern look.
