De-Clutter Your Makeup Bag With These Dual-Purpose Beauty Buys

There’s nothing more therapeutic than having a good-old clear-out of things you never use, are out of date or aren’t right for your oily or sensitive skin - especially around Christmas time when you’re likely to be getting new products and need to make room for it… out with the old and in with the new!

When it comes to makeup, you don’t need masses of products when most have dual purposes. Clearing out all the unnecessary makeup in your drawers and makeup bag and replacing them with 2-in-1 products will save you both time and space - cutting your ‘getting ready’ time in half and ensuring your dry, oily or sensitive skin stays clear and un-irritated is very important, but having too many products is expensive and time-wasting.

We’ve found some incredible multiple-use products that can give you that new year’s clean out, giving you more time, more space and less stress!

Benefit Benetint Cheek and Lip Stain is a product I have been using since my early teens - it’s a product that can be used multiple times throughout your makeup routine and is definitely one you need in your makeup bag. This little bottle can give you rosy pink cheeks and a luscious stain of pink for the lips.

Model’s Own Sculpt and Glow Contour Palette can sculpt and define cheekbones, thin your nose and highlight your best features all in one handy palette. Using the dark shade on areas you want to appear thinner and highlighting areas you want to stand out will give you a perfectly chiseled look.

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth Brightening Concealer and Serum is an incredible product that is enriched with nutrients to help skin appear younger, reduce wrinkles and brighten your under eye area in just 4 short weeks. The concealer’s coverage ensures a creaseless finish and long durability.

For the brows, get this Duo Pencil from Bourjois to fill in and highlight your brows to give a fuller, thicker look.

Skincare can also be dual purpose, like this Nivea Visage 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner which can wipe away your makeup and tone the skin in one sweep. Its gentle formula is suitable for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. Your morning routine can be cut down to just 10 minutes!
