Double Duty Beauty: Our Favorite Multitasking Makeup for Winter

Beauty / January 21, 2015

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to shave a little bit of time off their morning routine for an extra morning snoozing minutes or for that second helping of coffee?

If you make some edits to your beauty routine and add in the following products, you just might—each one is a multitasking miracle that can cut your prep time in half, save you valuable time during touch-ups, and put some moolah back into your pockets.

L’Occitane Pure Shea Butter, $42

Managing dry winter skin can take up a lot of time. But if you carry around this tin of Shea butter, you’ll have an on-the-spot smoother for lips, cuticles, hands, feet, and hair.

Neutrogena SkinClearing Liquid Makeup, $12

Acne-prone faces don’t have to forgo foundation while they battle breakouts. Neutrogena’s makeup treats existing blemishes with salicylic acid while providing non-cakey, breathable coverage.

Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip And Cheek Creamy Oil, $18

This creamy, argan-infused oil is soothing, moisturizing, and melts right into the skin. Pigmented in six different shades, it makes both an amazing lip gloss and cream blush, leaving behind natural-looking color that’s light and not greasy.

NARS the Multiple, $39

One could argue that this multi-purpose makeup stick is the mother of all double-duty beauty products. The cream-to-powder highlighter can sculpt the face, color the lips, cheeks, and eyes, and even contour the décolletage. If you’re not sure what shade you’d like, try the universally flattering, cult-classic Orgasm—a pinky peach color with a hint of shimmer. 

Pureology Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier, $25

This spray not only protects and enhances your hair color—it also nourishes each strand with a blend of beneficial ingredients. Fennel seed extract, camelina oil, coconut oil, and olive oil combine to strengthen, condition, smooth, and fight frizz, all the while protecting your hair from heat and environmental damage.
