It’s the weekend. Have sweeter words ever been uttered? We think not. In honor of this glorious occasion known as Friday, we’re serving up some beauty inspiration and encouraging you to try a chic, not-suitable-for-Monday makeup look. Scroll through to start planning your most beautiful weekend ever!
All week long, you’ve worn nude or pale pink lips. Now it’s time to take things in a different, darker direction. The best news is that deep purple—almost eggplant-colored lips—don’t require much else to make a statement. Make your skin matte, add a coat of black mascara, and you’re ready to go.
When your brows look good, you can pretty much coast through the rest of your makeup application. But to give the minimalist look a bit more Saturday appeal, pair your brushed-up brows with glowy skin and a cool lilac lip. Apply a dewy luminizer to all of the places on your face that catch the light, paying extra attention to the inner corners of your eyes and the center of your lids. Then, just press a matte shade of lilac lipstick into your lips to add color.
A black cat-eye is totally expected, but change the liner to a warm, rich chocolate brown color and suddenly you’ve made an ordinary beauty look totally original. Plus, brown is more forgiving if you make a mistake, and connecting the eyeliner all the way around ensures the inner corners will match (Here's how to get the wing just right). Keep the rest of your makeup simple—a little brow, lash, and some tinted balm, and you’ve nailed the look.
