2-in-1 Makeup Multi-taskers that Actually Work
No marketing gimmicks here!| June 25, 2021
Multi-taskers are a great idea. Who doesn’t love a 2-for-1 deal? Not only is it more value for the dollar, but it’s also of great convenience to have one thing that can do multiple things.
A blush that doubles up as an eyeshadow and a lip tint; a concealer with a highlighter on the other end; a foundation you could also use as a concealer; these makeup multi-taskers shave off the extra weight from a makeup pouch whether on a night out or if you’re on a summer vacay. A little can go a long way when you find the right products that actually deliver their promises.
We’ve done the legwork for you – here are four multi-taskers that do as they say. No marketing gimmicks here.
Bite Beauty Daycation Whipped Blush
A little bit goes a long way with Bite Beauty’s Daycation Whipped Blush. It might take you a few tries to get the hang of just how much product you’d need to apply but fret not you’ll get better at it with each try. The creamy, pigmented formula glides onto the skin like butter on a pan – we’d suggest using a brush or beauty blender for an even application. A double duty agent, the blush works just as well on the eyelids as a cream shadow. Plus, the fact that it’s a clean, cruelty-free, and vegan product earns Bite Beauty’s Daycation Whipped Blush extra points in our books!
Butter London LumiMatte 2-in-1 Concealer & Brightening Highlighter Duo
Two is better than one, you bet. A concealer highlighting duo is not one that comes around often nor is it one that we’d really have thought to pair together but Butter London’s LumiMatte 2-in-1 Concealer & Brightening Highlighter Duo is one of those things you never knew you needed until you’ve had it. The lightweight concealer gives you an au natural finish and the highlighter end brightens up the eye. We like to apply a smidget on the inner corners of the eye and also take it to the high points of the face. It’s also a great size to toss into your bag if you need a touch up throughout the night.
Marc Jacobs Extra Shot Caffeine Concealer & Foundation
Wait, what – a concealer and foundation in one bottle? That can sound a little confusing but here’s what it really means. Marc Jacobs Extra Shot Caffeine Concealer & Foundation is a buildable liquid formula that offers medium to full coverage depending on how much you apply. You can layer it until it offers you your desired coverage as a foundation or dot it under the eye and over your blemishes as a concealer. If you have dry skin, don’t forget to moisturise prior!
NudeStix Brow Boost + Set Gel XL Eyebrows
This one’s a gift sent down straight from the makeup heavens. A long-wearing gel, the NudeStix Brow Boost and Gel is one that’d keep your brows in place come hell or high water. You can take a dip into the ocean, swim in the pool, and your brows would not have budged. A real saviour of the brows! And not that we needed any other reason to wear it often beyond that it really does work, the brow gel also promises thicker, fuller brows in 30 days. Well, take our money.
