Have you looked at your beauty drawer lately? It’s probably overflowing with products that haven’t been used because you have yet to find the right purpose or occasion for them. Truth is, pigeon-holding products not only limits them from fulfilling their face-perfecting destiny, but also limits us from trying new looks and broadening our beauty horizons. Let us enlighten you with some key makeup items that are dynamite multitaskers!
BB Cream Many see BB cream as a base product, used to prime your face prior to applying foundation and lend some added moisture and hydration. However, these days, BB cream formulas are getting fancier and are packaged with a range of benefits that allow you to cut back on a few steps in your skincare routine: SPF, moisture, makeup coverage, redness-reducer, etc. For everyday use, BB cream can also serve as your foundation. MDC Quick Tip: Mix a little liquid highlighter in with your BB cream before applying to your face. This lends your face a subtle glow and ample coverage of blemishes and imperfections! Product Recommendations: The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream, L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Anti-Redness
Lip Stain The team here at MDC is all about that little pop of color. Whether it’s on your cheeks or on your lips (or both), a little rouge goes a long way. No need to go out and buy blushand lipstick, when there are plenty of options out there that offer both in one little package. Product Recommendations:YSL Beauty Kiss & Blush , Tarte Cheek Stain
Liquid Highlighter Ahhhh, the wonders of highlighter. In addition to adding a touch of shimmer and light to your complexion, this little wonder also serves as a great primer or easy mix-in with your foundation. It also works well as a natural-looking eye shadow. Just dab a little on your eyelid to make your eyes pop and make you look more awake. Product Recommendations: Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer, The Body Shop Shimmer Waves
Translucent Powder Did you know that lovely powder that sets and perfects your makeup can also work wonders on your lashes and lips? Talk about a magic multitasker! To thicken your lashes, just dust a bit onto a spoolie brush and run it through your lashes in between mascara coats. You can also dab some onto your lips to give your lip color more of a matte look. Product Recommendations:DermaBlend Setting Powder, L’Oréal Paris Translucide Naturally Luminous Loose Powder
