multiple use beauty products

In beauty, makeup on August 19, 2010 at 10:22 pm

have a lot to do but not enough time?  between waking up and going back to sleep,  you have to check emails, return phone calls, get to work on time, attend endless meetings, walk the dog,  eat (if you do that kind of thing) and not to mention look totally amazing so you need beauty products that are quick, easy to use, and deliver amazing results.  well read on for some of my favorite products that have more than one use and that are great for minimalists, women on the go, the novice and the pro…

nars the multiple:  a cream to powder stick makeup which comes in an array of colors,  can be used on face, lips, cheeks or body to add warmth, sculpt and highlight.  can be used with fingers,  or applied directly from the tube (blend with fingers).  nars’ signature and cult favorite shade is orgasm which is a beautiful peachy, golden pink and is actually a universally flattering shade (pinky peach on lighter complexions and golden pink on deeper complexions)

stila one step prime color:  this product, which has a light, mousse like texture, primes and highlights, is an eyeshadow, bronzer, cheek and lip color.  it is a smart product which means it reacts to your skin’s needs by correcting, priming and balancing in the areas that need it and is great for the skin because it is paraben free.  comes in six shades. the kitten and bronze beige shades make great highlighters on the high points of the face.

korres milk proteins 3 in 1 cleansing emulsion:  this product, which is made without sulfates and synthetic dyes,  is great for cleansing, toning and removing makeup.  best suited for those who have dryer skin and great for those who, after a long day, want to use one product to remove everything.  for quick easy cleasing in a flash or on the go, try their milk proteins cleansing and makeup removing wipes (dry skin) or my favorite, pomegrante cleansing and makeup removing wipes for oily and combination skin.

guerlain kiss kiss lip lift:  looking for a product that will act as a treatment your lips and keep your color on longer than a half hour, try this product which smooths, treats and primes the lips for long lasting color.  i even like to use this product as a reverse lip liner:  apply just outside of the lipline to create a barrier to prevent lip color (especially reds) from bleeding.  similar products that work just as beautifully are the too faced borderline anti feathering lip pencil and duwop reverse lip liner.

dr brandt pores no more pore refiner:  only the greatest invention since electricity and a personal favorite,  this product, made without sulfates and dyes smooths skin texture, refines pores and provides a matte finish.  in addition, used as a primer, it keeps foundation on longer and less foundation product is needed.  for drier skin types try ddf wrinkle resist plus pore minimizer.  it minimizes pores, hydrates, exfoliates and works great as a primer.

now if only triple mousse chocolate cake had multiple uses for our good….
