Your beauty kit is about to become a whole lot lighter
If you love hitting snooze on your alarm, but hate the morning rush, we’ve got you covered. Multitasking beauty products are the absolute JAM for all you busy/lazy/makeup-on-the-train people out there.
From a multipurpose moisturiser that doubles as a hair serum, to a palette that can pretty much replace many of your makeup products, we’ve rounded up four of the best multitasking beauty products your routine needs. Psst…all of them are natural, too!
#1/ Weleda Skin Food Light
There are 101 ways to use Weleda Skin Food Light and it’s the ideal companion for when you’re on-the-go. It’s also 100 per cent natural and really easy to use – so that’s already a good time in itself. This fast-absorbing lotion combines organic sunflower oil with skin-calming extracts of pansy, chamomile and calendula to provide long-lasting hydration so your complexion is left feeling smooth, silky and happy. While it can be used to tackle dry skin on your hands, elbows, knees, heels and cuticles, it’s also great as an everyday moisturiser, lip balm, face mask or under-eye cream. You can even use it as a highlighter on the high points of your face for that dewy look; swipe it over your brows to keep them in place; or smooth it over split ends to nix dry hair.
#2/ Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener
Jane Iredale is known for combining skin care and cosmetics, so it’s no surprise this is one of the most versatile little primers getting around. Jane Iredale’s Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener is a two-in-one face primer and highlighter with anti-ageing benefits. It delivers a nice dose of hydration to dry skin while working to minimise the appearance of pores and fine lines, giving you a radiant and even complexion. On top of that, it offers antioxidant protection and can soothe blemishes and reduce shine.
#3/ Ilia Multi-Stick
There’s pretty much nothing the Ilia Multi-Stick can’t do when it comes to makeup, and it’s a serious saviour in your makeup bag during the morning rush. The cream-to-powder formula can be used on all areas of your face – whether you want to add a flush of colour to your cheeks, a tint to your lips, or a hint of colour to your lids. This Multi-Stick does it all. And there’s a shade for every skin tone. It’s also formulated with cocoa butter, shea butter and vitamin E, meaning it’ll nourish and hydrate your skin, all while making it look fabulous.
4/ RMS Beauty Signature Set in The Mod Collection
We heart a good multitasking makeup palette, and this RMS Beauty Signature Set is as good as they get. The pocket-sized gem is one of the best multitasking beauty products because it’s loaded with all the essentials. It consists of five products that work together to give you a dewy, glowy makeup look – a luminiser, a bronzer, a lip colour and cheek tint, and a lip and skin balm. You can even use each shade as eyeshadow. It’s basically the five-minute makeup palette you’ve been looking for your whole life.
