The Best Multi-Tasking Beauty Products

    Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo - Lover & Hussy

    With a hard hitting amount of pigment (yes please!), Illamasqua’s blusher is a go-to for pro MUA’s around the world and, um, us.

    But we don’t like to use it just as blusher, we absolutely love it as an eye shadow. Wash over your eyelids for a subtle seventies-style look, or layer it up for a pop of pink and finish off with a strong winged liner.

  2. NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo - Chestnut/Sand

    NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo - Chestnut/Sand

    Of course, the main use for NYX’s Sculpt & Highlight face duo is to sculpt and shape by highlighting and contouring (confused? Read our blog post answering the question “what is contouring?”), but we’re not gonna be obvious.

    In addition to the sculpting options, the highlighter end makes for a great eyeshadow primer. Apply a thin layer on your eyelids and wait for it to set to prep your lids for whatever creative makeup look you’re after.

    ALGENIST Drop and Glow Luminising Duo 7ml

    There’s no such thing as too much highlighter: fact. And this is 100% why we’re obsessed with the Algenist’s illuminating drops.

    Instead of just applying them to the highs of your cheekbones and your inner corner, try mixing one or two drops with your foundation for an all over glow. Lit from within? Sorta.

    benefit They're Real Duo Shadow Blender Sexy Smokin 3.5g

    We love the shades in all of Benefit’s They’re Real duos, and they’re perfect for recreating a smokey eye, but are you after something else?

    These little compacts are perf’ for travelling, as they can double up as a makeshift eyebrow shade. The lighter colour can help to carve out your brows too – genius.

    EOS Organic Pomegranate Raspberry Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    Not only are EOS lip balms perfect for keepin’ our pouts just peachy, they’re also must-have products for a multitude of beauty purposes.

    When you’re having a no makeup makeup day, then reach for one of these to add a really subtle highlight. Apply straight from the pack, and then pat the product into the skin to make sure you don’t wipe it straight off.

    We also love to apply a little bit of the product to the eyelid for a subtle glossy eye makeup look.

  6. Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Precision Glide Lipliner (Various Colours)
    £17.00 Buy now with HQhair

    Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Precision Glide Lipliner (Various Colours)

    Just because it says lip on the product, don’t limit yourself to thinkin’ that this is a one job only kinda thing.

    Lip liners are perfect as eyeliner (and vice versa). Instead of going for a black liner, go for a softer brown or nude and smoke it out for a super sassy look we know you’ll love.

  7. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate Eye Shadow (Various Shades)
    £11.00 Buy now with HQhair

    Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate Eye Shadow (Various Shades)

    Got some loose pigment in your collection and want to make it werk? Consider giving it a new lease of life as a shade for your lips.

    Drop some onto the back of your hand (or scrape it from the pan with a clean spoolie if you’re using a pressed powder) and then mix with a clear gloss to create a lip gloss in your bespoke shade. It creates a perfectly sheer wash of colour, but keep adding pigment to up the colour payoff.

    This is the perfect idea if you want to try a new colour but aren’t quite ready to commit to a whole new product.

When in doubt: add glitter. I'm obsessed with shimmer eyeshadows and always layer up my highlighter.
