When it comes to beauty, wouldn’t it be nice if there were something that served as a one-stop-shop to looking and feeling your best? Well, one power product may be a stretch, but there are a few that have dual usage. Say hello to four goodies that will simplify your life without weighing down your makeup bag (or breaking the bank!)
Philosophy Purity Facial Cleanser
This three-in-one product gently cleanses, tones, and removes all traces of makeup (including eye makeup). Plus, with oil extracts that condition and hydrate, your skin will feel moisturized and refreshed.
Doubles as a makeup brush cleaner. To get all the buildup and bacteria out of your brushes, clean them with Purity and warm water. Then, lay flat to dry. Clean brushes increase your chances of clearer skin and your pretty makeup will go on better, guaranteed!
Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer
Erase pesky pimples and signs of too many late nights with this matte-finish concealer. I’ve tried many concealers, and I think this one trumps them all in terms of hiding even the worst of blemishes, darkness, or redness. As a full coverage and waterproof concealer, it’s sure to cover any imperfections with fabulous staying power.
Doubles as an eyeshadow primer. Not only will this make your eyeshadow last all day (and night) and prevent creasing, but it will also neutralize the skin tone on your eyelid. Even if I’m not wearing eyeshadow, I like to use this to even out my coloring. Just doing that instantly brightens the eye area.
Sephora Collection Pro Air Brush #55
The secret to an airbrushed look starts with this liquid foundation brush. Its shape and high-grade synthetic hairs perfectly blend foundation, provide buildable coverage, and give better results than natural-haired brushes.
Doubles as a powder, bronzer, and blush brush. I use this brush to apply my liquid foundation and then continue using it with powder, bronzer, and blush. At 34 bucks, this brush is totally worth it since you get four different benefits from of it. Plus, it feels really good on your skin!
Laura Mercier Radiance Primer
The name alone gives away this product’s dual purpose. As a primer, it creates an even canvas for your makeup by filling in fine lines and pores. Use it under foundation, powder, or tinted moisturizer to prep your skin and help makeup last longer.
Doubles as an illuminator. Who doesn’t want radiant skin? This primer will give you a natural, luminous finish without looking shimmery or adding any color. I particularly like using it on special occasions when I need my makeup to stay put and really want my skin to glow. A final (third) side benefit: jojoba seed oil will also help to hydrate your skin.
