Iâ€™ve always loved products that can do double-duty in my makeup bag, itâ€™s a well-known fact that I use my favourite rose coloured lip balm on my cheeks and eyes when pressed for time in the morning. So when I recently chatted with ANDREA TILLER (she’s one the city’s most sought-after makeup artists), I had to ask her what her must-haves are when it comes to multi-use products that can do double-duty in all our makeup bags.
MAC Cosmetics ShadeStick $20, Mac counters across Canada
A smooth and silky, rich and creamy eye shadow delivered in a sophisticated stick-style format.
â€œI love to use this in the Shimmersand colour as an eye shadow base or as a highlighter underneath the brows as well as on cheeks and nose to give definition. Also you can use the darker shades as eye liners.â€
Benefit Cosmetics Miss Popularity $24, Benefit counters at
Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora’s across Canada
Precision Highlighter for Eyes and Face
â€œThis is a great user-friendly product if you want that â€˜lit from withinâ€™ look! It has a sponge applicator and glides perfectly over eyes, cheeks and even between your cleavage. I use it to create big bright eyes that make you look instantly awake in the morning and then also mix it with a gel-bronzer or liquid cheek colour for a beautiful dewy look.â€
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Protectant $25, Elizabeth Arden counters across Canada
Touted as a â€˜Miracle Cream,â€™ this beauty all in one product is an on the spot treatment for cuts, itchy skin, burns and is an anti-inflammatory.
â€œI always use this to prep my clients skin before any make up application and it adds great sheen on the cheeks and eyes on photo shoots. I also love to mix this with exfoliators or masks in the evening and is a must-have when travelling.â€
