As I'm away on holiday the lovely Jess offered to provide me with a guest post to help keep my blog ticking over. Jess blogs about a range of topics including beauty, lifestyle and weight loss. She is friendly, chatty and one of the many local Welsh bloggers that I have had the pleasure to meet.
Buying lots of makeup products can often mean that I end up carrying around way more makeup than I need and have a makeup bag that is bursting at the zip. So, it's always nice when I find a multi-use product that I can use for a few different things, save space and condense my makeup bag! Here are some of my favourite multi-use makeup products:
Mac MSF in soft and gentle is a cult favourite and definitely one of the most beautiful powder product ever, not only is it a great highlight but you can also use this for a subtle blush, an inner corner eyelid highlight or even an all over base shadow for lazy days! Another great powder product is sleeks face form kit (mine is in the shade light) which contains a contour powder, highlight and blush. This trio already condenses your makeup into one product but the contour and highlight can also be used on the eyes for a soft all over lid colour and by placing the contour in the crease you can create an easy neutral eye look!
Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette is already very compact and is smaller than an iPhone but it gets even better. Crave is a matte black shade so makes the perfect eyeliner used with a brush whilst faint and naked 2 can become the perfect brow combo depending on your shade, I like to use a mix of both. Another dual purpose eyeshadow is the maybelline 24hr colour tattoo, which makes a brilliant eyeshadow base but also a lovely eyeliner so the smokey bronze and black shades are great for that. They also offer natural matte shades which can double up as primers. Speaking of primers, this little pot of primer from Avon can be used as a colour corrector to even out any small patches of redness as well as making a fantastic base for any eyeshadow.
Sometimes it's worth investing in a product if you can use it for multiple things and also save space at the same time. Do you have any multi-use products you love?
Thanks for the great post Jess! I don't own any of these products but may invest now that I know how versatile they are!
