Austerity measures in beauty may not sound like a positive trend, but now, spending less has never looked so good.
Not only do we multi-task in our daily lives, but multi-tasking with makeup products is taking the beauty world by storm.
Alongside the paradoxical no-makeup makeup trend, multi-tasking works hand in hand by creating an effortless and yet extremely chic look by using as few products as possible.
Multi-tasking saves both time and money and raises the question – why buy two or three products when one will suffice?
Travelling abroad is also one reason why many try to eliminate excess makeup where possible. Saving space in suitcases is essential – and reducing the number of products you chose to bring with you is just the way to do so.
Using lipstick as blusher or vice versa is one trend that will never go out of style. From lip and cheek stains to dabbing a small amount of lipstick on the cheeks before blending in, this method is versatile, quick and easy.
For subtle definition around the eyes, beauty bloggers and makeup-enthusiasts galore have been using bronzer in the crease of the lid. Not only does this create that minimalist and effortless eye look but using the same shade of bronzer on the skin can really pull a look together – all whilst saving time, money and space.
For that infamous summer glow, liquid highlights are the answer to dull and tired-looking skin. Whether they are worn under foundation, over foundation or blended in for that extra luminous finish, these kinds of products have proven time and time again to be versatile.
Eyeshadow palettes are also big multi-taskers. Whether they are used for the eyelids, eyebrows or whether the shimmery shades are used as cheek highlighters – buying a palette could save you money in the long run.
