Multitask Your Makeup Bag

Spring is a super busy time for all of us. Graduations, interviews, holidays, showers, weddings; it seems like we are always on the go! Here are some fabulous makeup products that will simplify your beauty routine and get you from the conference room to the wedding rehearsal without skipping a beat.


1. Rosebud Salve, ($6):  This is probably the best multitasking item out there. You can use Rosebud Salve to tame flyaways, as an eye primer, soothe chapped lips, soften cuticles, and even remove makeup. Definitely a must have for any girl on the go.
2. Nars The Multiple Multi-Purpose Stick, “Orgasm” ($39):  Nars is known for their universally flattering color, “Orgasm,” and has packaged this peachy shimmer color into a convenient stick that can be used on your body, cheeks, and lips. Apply this with your fingers along the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush, or along the top of the cheek bones for a natural highlight.
3. Stila Convertible Color for Lips and Cheeks, Fuschia ($25):  Stila gets it right in this color with a punch! Stila’s Convertible Color provides a pigmented, easy gliding, creamy color that is easily applied on the cheeks for a fresh flush look.  Dab a bit on your lips and lids for a chic monochromatic look, then finish with a few swipes of mascara.
4. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat, ($40):  This magic pen has powers beyond just a highlighter. You can use this illuminating product to fake a full nights rest with just a few strokes! You can blend some lines extending from the outer corners of your eyes, then down the center of your nose, and also along the upper lip to enhance your cupid’s bow.
5. Stila Smudge Pot, Black Cat ($20):  Big things definitely come in small packages!  Stila specially formulated this gel liner to be used in more ways than one! To take this from day to night, apply a simple liner in the morning with a liner brush.  Later on, take your ring finger and dab a small amount on top of that liner and smudge it into a sultry smoky eye.
6. Benefit They’re Real Mascara, ($29):  The bigger the lashes the closer to God? This double sided mascara wand surely sits high on my pedestal.  Coat your lashes first with the center of the wand to volumize.  To make an angelic statement, swipe the ends upwards to the heavens, with the ball shaped end to lengthen. Your prayers have been answered!
