Who doesn’t love a good makeup or beauty product? Especially when the product in question really works for it. When we say “works for it”, we mean that the product is loved, you finish it and also that it has more than one use. These multipurpose products are especially the best when traveling or looking for a fuss-free option.
Now, more than ever, there are multipurpose products and hacks for almost every beauty necessity. Here are a few excellent multi-purpose beauty products that will keep your beauty routine intact without adding hordes of products.
Almost everyone has black kajal and we can’t deny that nothing beats a classic kohl look. However, you should know that brown kajal works very well too. This basic kajal stick can be applied on the waterline, can also be used as a brown eyeshadow to create a sexy smoky look, or used as an eyebrow filler for creating volume and framing the face. This multipurpose makeup product is a must have and can be found in a multitude of brands in the market. We would recommend the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in ‘Classic Brown’ which works really well in both the pigmentation and long-stay department.

A liquid illuminator or highlighter is one of the best beauty products because of its versatility. A liquid illuminator, as the name suggests, helps highlight different parts of the face and body. You can apply it on the bridge of the nose, the brow bone, collar bones, the apple of your cheeks and more. If you want just a hint of shine, then use just a dab because most highlighters available in the market are highly pigmented. You can even mix it with a lotion to just apply it for an overall shine on your face or body. We recommend the NYX Professional Makeup Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator which works very well.

For many people, rosy cheeks is what comes to mind when we think of blush, but that is not always the best option especially for warmer skin tones. A brown blush can be used as a contouring powder or bronzer as well. Apply this on the hollows of your cheeks to create depth and make the cheekbones stand out. Make sure to blend and build a look so it doesn’t look cakey and fake. We suggest M.A.C Sheertone blush in the shade ‘Gingerly’. It’s a gorgeous shade and looks beautiful.

4.Lip & Cheek Tints
Another product that is super versatile is the lip and cheek tint. This gorgeous product has made life a lot easier for people who are looking for something fuss-free to apply to the lips. For people who don’t like wearing lipstick all the time but like some colour on their lips, this option is the best. This product is quite weightless and lasts long, making it quite perfect. On top of that it can also double up as a cheek tint giving a sun flushed look! We recommend The Face Shop Water Lip Tint in the shade ‘Red Signal’. This dark berry shade really stands out and ticks all the boxes.

If you’re looking for both a primer and setting spray in one then this product is for you. This works really well and helps makeup last long. If you have oily skin, live in humid weather or just like your makeup to stay for longer periods of time, then this product is a superb investment. We recommend the M.A.C Prep + Prime spray for its matte finish.
