11 multitasking makeup must-haves
If you’re anything like me, your make-up bag is overflowing with products you hardly ever use.
But how do we reduce the excess without messing with our make-up look?
With multitasking make-up prods, that’s how!
Because why settle for a make-up product that can do just one thing, when you could have a product that has two, three or even four uses all in one?
1. Chi Chi Super BB Cream
What is it? An anti-ageing and moisturising cream that combines make-up and skincare in one.
Use it for: Brightening your complexion, correcting skin pigmentation, protecting against sun damage (it has an SPF factor of 30) and addressing skin ageing (with gotu kola and vitamin E).
Hot tip: Mix a small amount with your foundation for fuller coverage that’s still a bit dewy for night-time.
2. Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick
What is it? A shimmering, brush-on powder that creates a candlelight glow.
Use it for: Highlighting, bronzing and even eye shadow-ing in a pinch. This palette is my number one make-up go-to.
Hot tip: Sweep it generously over the top of your cheekbones for a gorgeous summer party look.
3. blinc Eyeliner Pencil in ‘Brown’
What is it? A creamy, long-wearing eyeliner pencil that helps firm and condition your skin.
Use it for: Lining your lids, smudging and mimicking brown eye shadow and even colourings in your brows. Oh, and spoiling your skin with natural antioxidants and tocopheryl acetate (a vitamin known for its anti-ageing benefits).
Hot tip: Smudge the creamy formula for a sexy, smoky finish.
4. Designer Brands Moisturising Lipstick in ‘Perfect Pink’
What is it? A hydrating, creamy lipstick that gives good colour while also conditioning your lips with vitamin E and aloe vera.
Use it for: A pretty pink pout, glossy pink lids (Ashley Benson rocks this look) and rosy cheeks.
Hot tip: To warm your complexion, dab the lippie along the apples of your cheeks using your finger. Tooo easy.
5. Nude by Nature Pressed Mineral Cover
What is it? A mineral make-up must-have that covers redness, enlarged pores and other imperfections while conditioning your skin with nourishing ingredients such as Kadadu plum, avocado oil and vitamins C and E.
Use it for: Creating a luminous base for your make-up that benefits your skin, without worrying about those loose compact spills.
Hot tip: Buffing it in will warm up the minerals for a smooth, even finish.
