Multifunctional beauty products are my favourite because they cut down on clutter, save me a few dollars and loads of time 🙂
In the age of Marie Kondo and parting with items that don’t bring us joy let’s try minimize our beauty collections too.
1- Invest in a tinted moisturizer:
Try the Alumier MD sheer hydration SPF 40 and versatile tint is a lifesaver! If you are serious about finding one product that does a lot for you, I highly recommend this one! I have been using it for the past 3 months and I am completely blown away. It saves me a lot of time and I can’t get over how much I love the way it looks on my skin.
I use it as my:
- Daily moisturiser
- It’s also my SPF 40 (all physical not chemical)
- The sheer versatile tint gives me the perfect amount of coverage during the day but if I want to add more coverage on top it acts as my primer.
Truthfully I had never heard of this brand prior to being invited to a facial event of theirs and I am over the moon that I have discovered it. I am also loving their skincare but I will save that for another post 🙂

2 – Use a full coverage concealer which can double as a sheer coverage foundation:
Kat Von D lock it in concealer’s are so creamy that I conceal with them and use them instead of a foundation. In general, full coverage concealers are a great alternative to using a foundation apply a dot to each cheek, forehead and chin blend it out and you are good to go.
My skin looks so even and smooth when I use this concealer I haven’t had to use a daily foundation for months. Pair this with the versatile tint I mentioned above and you will be looking and feeling fabulous in no time (literally) .
A few other reasons why this is my concealer of choice:
- It offers 24 hours of wear so ultra long wearing
- It’s paraben free and Vegan
- It’s available 21 different shades offering one of the most extensive shade lines.
3 – Invest in a Multistick :
Nars (THE MULTIPLE) multi sticks are perfect to use on your lips, cheeks and eyes.
Multi Sticks will have you looking done up with only one product. These amazing sticks are available at Sephora and are definitely Marie Kondo approved!
Available in 3 gorgeous shades you will love the creamy texture and easy to blend formulas. The colours are also universal and look beautiful on all skin tones.
Available at Sephora for $51
4 – Try a bronzer as a contour and eyeshadow shade:
Marc Jacobs Omega Coconut Bronzer in the newest shade Tantalize is a multitaskers dream. It’s a beautiful deep matte tone that works as a bronzer, contour shade and eyeshadow to create beautiful smokey eye effects.
The reason why this bronzer works so well to create contour and smouldering eye looks is because of its matte finish. When contouring shimmer doesn’t work and will attract light as opposed to creating those sculpted features we crave.
The packaging is gorgeous and has a large size mirror which makes touch ups and application easy.
I really can’t recommend this product enough and I just know you will LOVE IT ! Pick one up for your self : Marc Jacobs Bronzer
4 – Invest in a warm toned highlight shade:
The Shiseido Aura Dew Shadow Highlighter in the shade Aurora is absolutely beautiful! Highlighting is still a huge trend and we all want to add a glow to our complexion.
The Shade Aurora is my personal favourite and all of my clients love it too. This beautiful warm golden tone is complimentary on all skin tones. Not only is it great on the eyes but adds the perfect amount of glow to the cheeks, collar bones and bridge of the nose.
It’s buildable too so you can start with a soft glow and build up the intensity.
5 – A skin care product that does double duty:
Dr. Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk is a cleanser, makeup remover and mask! If you are anything like me I am totally pooped by the end of the day and love any product that makes my skincare routine short and sweet.
This cleanser will become your best friend because its creamy formula removes makeup, cleanses and if you want an extra boost of hydration apply a thin layer of it to your skin and it works as a mask too!
