6 Multipurpose Makeup Products That Will Cut Your Makeup Routine In Half

Getting ready can be tiring, especially for those of us that go for a full face of makeup. With the help of products that can be used on more than one part of your face, getting ready can be quick and easy. From an eyeliner that can double as a highlighter to a bronzer that can also be used as an eyeshadow, these products will both save you time and money. Using makeup like this will also let you sleep in for a few more minutes, which is always needed.

1. Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream, It Cosmetics ($39)

Not only does this lightweight to medium coverage CC cream create a glass skin illusion, it also color corrects and brightens skin with the anti-aging serum that’s been added into the formula. The best part is that it also protects your skin from sun damage thanks to the SPF 50.

2. Wonder Pencil, NYX ($4.50)

Available in three shades, this versatile eyeliner helps to brighten your eyes. Like it’s said on the product’s website, it was made to “conquer the 3 important makeup deeds with one product - conceal, brighten and line!” Focused mainly for the waterline (the rim where your eyelid meets your eye), it can also be used to brighten the inner corner of your eye or even to highlight your brow bone.

3. The Multiple, Nars ($39)

This creamy formulated blush was made for those in a rush. Doubling as blush and lipstick, the application by stick makes it an on-the-go makeup product. Whether you like a sheer look, or prefer your blush to look vibrant, the Multiple was made for layering without resulting in a cakey mess. Depending on what shade you choose out of the four available, it could also be used as a cream highlighter.  

4. Make It Last, Milani ($9.99)

For those of you like me that hate waiting for your primer to set, I have found a nice alternative. This primer and setting spray can be used for both the beginning and end of your makeup routine. The spray dries almost instantly, letting you start your next step sooner than expected.

5. Match Stix, Fenty Beauty ($25)

This multipurpose product probably has the most uses out of all of the list entries. Fenty Beauty claims that the product can highlight, blush, enhance, and bronze with the 10 shades offered. The formula also allows for a perfect application on your cheeks, lips, eyelids, and collarbones.

6. Hoola Cream-to-Powder Quickie Contour Stick, Benefit ($28)

Cream products tend to be better for those new to makeup or those that are in a rush. With this contour stick, mistakes are welcome and you won’t be getting any harsh contour lines. The result will be a matte bronzy look that appears effortless and soft.


Why not make getting ready faster? If you’re like me, makeup routines in the morning are not fun, so cutting steps is always appreciated. By using some of these products, doing your makeup can be fast and simple. These versatile products create both natural and dramatic looks and, not to mention, save you money. What’s better than this? A quick, time and money saving solution to a long makeup routine is something we all need in our lives.
