I am definitely not a “one product” kind of girl, but I do have to admit that I have quite a few favorites that I constantly use in rotation.
Some of my best-loved products are also great multi-taskers. Having a few double-duty gems in your collection will not only help you get more out of your products, but it can also be a very budget-friendly solution. Here are some of my all-time favorite multi-taskers:
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer– highliter for cheeks, eyebrow arch, inner corner of your eyes or as an eyshadow. I’ve only been using this luminizer for a few weeks, and it’s already become one of my Holy Grail makeup products.
Pixi Eye Bright Pencil– for highliting your cupid’s bow, eyebrow arch or used in waterline to brighten up the eyes.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer– great for concealing under eye circles, as an eyeshadow primer, highlighting or used as tinted moisturizer- mixed with an equal amount of moisturizer and applied all over the face.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Beige– primarily a highliting powder but I also love using individual shadow strips as eyeshadows.
MAC Strobe Cream-great for priming your skin before applying foundation, can also be used as a highlighter when dabbed on top of your foundation. It’s also an overall good product with great ingredients that are good for your skin, I also sometimes use it as a moisturizer (even when not wearing make up).
NYX BB Cream– I wrote about this just last week. Works great as a tinted moisturizer (not so much a BB cream) and also doubles as a makeup primer.
MAC Blush in Harmony– one of my favorite blushes. It can be used as a blush, a contouring powder and I also love using it as an eyeshadow (it’s a great crease color).
Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base– applied on face for a subtle, bronzed look, can also be used as a body bronzer (when doing this I usually wait a few minutes before getting dressed), also great for intense contouring. Because of its orange-y tones, It can also be used to cover dark under-eye circles when applied under a concealer.
