It's 10pm on a Saturday. After a long week, you and your best friend are eating Chipotle and drinking Chateau Diana in a third friend's apartment while she's out with some dude she met at Simpsons Trivia Night. You're wearing college sweatpants and Christmas tree socks, and the only make-up you have on a trace of the Dr. Pepper lip smacker you found in the purse you've had since ninth grade. What I'm trying to say is, you're having the best night ever.
Suddenly, your bestie suggests you go dancing.
"Dancing? But we're so comfy!"
"Yeah, but I haven't gone out in forever and Lauren just texted me that everyone is going to Beauty Bar."
Then she pouts at you for a while, and when you finally relent she cheers and runs off to do her make-up. But you didn't bring any make-up! Guess you're just going to have to go out like this...
WRONG. You live in New York City, land of the 24-hour Duane Reade, the magical drugstore with an Ulta-sized make-up department. But with limited time and a limited budget, what key products should you make sure to snag?

Oh, and did I mention you won't spend more than $30?
