Makeup lovers often struggle with hoarding.
If we’re not careful, we might end up accumulating more products than we can use! And what’s worse is that some of our unused makeup products might expire before we ever get to use them.
That’s why it’s always smart to invest in multi-purpose products. There are more chances that you’ll be sure to use them up before they expire. Second, they keep your vanity table and your makeup bag organized and clutter-free.
1. Benefit Hoola Bronzer (Php 1,500)
While technically a bronzer, this product has also been the go-to contour product of makeup aficionados all over the globe. It helps give your face a more angular look. It helps you draw an effortless nose line. You can also use it as an eyeshadow to add depth in your eyes. It’s a bronzer, contour, and eyeshadow all in one! The mini version of the Hoola Bronzer also conveniently fits into even the tiniest of makeup bags!
2. Laura Mercier Pressed Translucent Powder (Php 1,850.00)
When people think of translucent powder, they often think of it as a tool to blot out excess oil. While that is true, the translucent powder is highly underrated! It has many more functions outside blotting excess oil.
If you love a lipstick shade but it has a satin, glossy finish, you can turn it into matte by dabbing some translucent powder on your lips! No need to buy so many lipsticks!
If you applied too much blush, bronzer, highlighter, or eyeshadow, you can also use your translucent powder to tone down the colors. No need to re-do your makeup all over again!
3. NARS Multiple in Orgasm (Php 2,250.00)
We can’t really talk about multi-tasking products without talking about the NARS Multiple! You can’t go wrong with their cult classic shade: Orgasm. The NARS Multiple in Orgasm can be worn on your cheeks, lips, and eyelids for a subtle, fresh, monochromatic look. You can use this to have a one-product face, too. It’s also easy to apply. You can ditch your makeup brushes and just use your fingers to apply and blend the product.
4. Mac Prep + Prime Fix + (Php 1,250)
The Mac Prep + Prime Fix + is a lightweight water mist that gently soothes and refreshes skin and finishes makeup! You can use it as a base, as a setting spray, and as a moisturizer. You can also use it to make your face less powdery and instead have a natural glow.
5. Clarins Multi-Active Day Cream SPF 20 (Php 4,350)
The two important rules of skincare is to moisturize and to apply some SPF! This product does both–and more! It helps visibly minimize fine lines and boost radiance. It fights the effects of daytime stress. The teasel extract delivers targeted revitalizing and anti-aging action to where your skin needs it most, while the myrothamnus extract visibly smoothens, tones and de-stresses!
