In today's day and age, we're always looking for ways to be more efficient. This, of course, is not excluding our own beauty vanity. If there is a way we can freshen up our sleepy skin in five minutes instead of fifteen with minimal products, we're all for it!
Here are our favorite multi-tasking products and how to max out their potential!
What beauty products can you use to multitask?
Don't let your clock saying you've only got five minutes to spare scare you into rushing through your typical routine. There is a way to be savvy with your style!
The nice thing about cream blush is that it can provide you with a subtle amount of color all over in just a few sweeps!
When you're short on time, grab a cream blush like Decorté Cream Blusher and pat it on the apples of your cheeks, AND your eyes and lips for a subtle, monochromatic look that enlivens and refreshes your visage.
This may or may not come as a surprise to you, but you don't always need a full face of foundation to look put together. Especially so in the summer months. The fewer layers, the better, to help your skin breathe in the rising temperatures and humidity.
When you've only got a few moments to spare, take a concealer that matches your skin tone, we recommend RMS Beauty 'Un' Cover-Up Concealer and apply it only where you need it. Around your eyes and the expression lines around your nose and mouth. Blend, blend, blend, set with powder and you are as good as gold.
If you play your cards right, primer can not only be the best thing to head your foundation for the smoothest finish, but it can also help color correct, hydrate and refinish your complexion as well.
Go for a 3-in-1 product with This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up. This primer, mask and moisturizer all-in-one product not only helps you hydrate your skin for long-lasting moisture and suppleness but also eliminates any redness and refines your skin's texture for a smooth, flawless finish.
Brown Eyeliner Pencil
In a pinch, you can double up on the way you use your brown eyeliner and use it to shape your brows as well!
If you feel you have the time for eyeliner, move it up a couple inches and use it to lightly fill in your brows. By Terry Stylo Blackstar Eye Liner in Tasty Truffle can give you a soft, full line along your eyes and also give you that soft finish for filling in your brows.
As for mascara? Sometimes, it's a little overrated. If you feel it's a must, apply it and whiz out the door, but please don't try to curl your lashes and drive. It's more hazardous than you would think! Discover more double-duty products on our SkinStore website here!
