Beauty Q&A: The Multiple

I’ve always loved products that can do double-duty in my makeup bag, it’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.
“I 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.”

Benefit Cosmetics Miss Popularity $24, Benefit counters at
Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora’s across Canada

Precision Highlighter for Eyes and Face
“This is a great user-friendly product if you want that ‘lit from within’ 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.”

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Protectant $25, Elizabeth Arden counters across Canada
Touted as a ‘Miracle Cream,’ this beauty all in one product is an on the spot treatment for cuts, itchy skin, burns and is an anti-inflammatory.
“I 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.”

  1. One of my fave multi-use products is the Bobbi Brown Rouge Pot in Calypso Coral. It’s not to dry for either cheeks or lips 🙂

  2. You forgot to mention Nars “The Multiple”! I love Copacabana.

  3. I have to say Andrea is one of the best makeup artists who’s ever done my makeup! Hands-down, this girl is soooo talented.
