Make-up junkies I challenge you to use the bare minimum for a picture perfect complexion. Here are some multi-tasking items that will tend to your every need, from glowing skin to luscious lips.
Stila Convertible Colour
The recent re-launch of Stila in the U.K has seen the return of the popular Convertible Colour (£16). Lipstick and blusher in one handy compact, this versatile product is available in a range of colours from nude to red. The handy mirrored compact is ideal for touch ups on the go and slips easily into the smallest of bags. It can be used to achieve a natural flush of healthy colour or built up in layers for a more intense colour.
Pixi Hydrotint Duo
Hydrotint Duo (£20) is a tinted moisturiser with built in SPF 20 and antioxidants. There are colours to suit every skintone and the handy tube format is super portable. The light diffusing pigments create wonderfully radiant skin that glows with vitality. With the lip and cheek tint also on hand it’ s easy to deliver a quick pop of colour to your lips and cheeks too.
This is the original multi-purpose stick that boasts a whole number of uses with the only limit being your imagination. Add some highlights or a touch of shimmer to your face and swipe the stick across your lips for a perfectly co-ordinating pout. With names like Copacabana and Palm Beach who can resist a daily dose of NARS Multiple (£29)?
Pop Beauty No Show Concealer
Banish under eye circles and blemishes with this two in one product by Pop Beauty. One end contains a highly pigmented stick concealer and the other end houses an illuminating liquid cover up. The light reflective end can be used to both enliven tired eyes and to highlight cheekbones. It comes in three shades and is available to purchase online and at selected stores listed on their website including ASOS.com (£15.50).
So there’s my pick of some of the best multi-tasking cosmetics available. Any product that offers multiple looks gets my full approval, as it’s such fun to play with your look and when you only need one product to do so it’s even better!
