We all know how much multitasking we do in our every day lives, but did you know that you can multitask in your beauty routine to cut your morning preparation time in half? Today I want to show how to use some of your products in more ways than you may have known!
On days when we are just trying to run out the door, we usually don’t have time to apply moisturizer, primer, foundation, etc., so we can slim those steps down by going right in with concealer. You can use your concealer to cover blemishes, hide redness, brighten under eyes, and you can even apply a few dots to the outer parts of your face to act as a light coverage foundation. You will accomplish many steps with one product.
Beauty Blender –
If you’ve seen any of my previous posts, you know I can’t live without a beauty sponge. I really like the original Beauty Blender along with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This handy little tool allows you to blend any liquid product into your skin for a flawless finish (moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, etc.) but what I’ve recently discovered is that it is great for powders too. If you’re running behind, you can always use your beauty blender to pat on some translucent powder to set your under eyes and entire face.
If you find the right shade of bronzer for your skin tone, it can work some serious wonders. Apply it in the hollows of your cheeks, on your temples, along your hairline, and under your jawline to give your face some definition and warmth. You can also sweep some onto your cheeks to replace blush and give yourself some serious bronzing. I also take this shade and run into the crease area of my eye to give myself some definition instead of using an eyeshadow. You don’t have to reach for additional products such as shadows and blushes when you’re rushing – bronzer will do the trick!
Even when you are going for a quick, effortless makeup look, adding highlight is always flattering. It can make your skin look glowy and beautiful. I multitask with this product by not only applying it to all the high points of my face (cheekbones, tip of nose, cupids bow, and forehead), but I also use it on my eyelids as shadow, on the inner corner of the eyes, as well on the brow bone. In combination with your bronzer crease shade, your makeup will look put together and fresh, while taking very little time to complete.
Fluffy Powder Brush –
I can complete my entire makeup look with only two brushes and a fluffy powder brush is one of them! A fluffy powder brush can be used to apply setting powder to your entire face, as well as for blush and bronzer.
Tapered Highlighter Brush –
The second brush you need is a tapered highlight brush. You can use this to apply highlight to all the high points, as well as use the tapered point to apply bronzer into your crease area, as well as the side of the brush to apply highlight to your lids.
Hope you got a few ideas on how to multitask with your beauty products!
