Let’s face it, moms are BUSY.  The thought of applying or lugging around an arsenal of beauty products can be overwhelming when you’ve got a full schedule and a toddler in tow.

That’s why multitasking beauty products are so great!  

They streamline your morning routine – and save you time, money, and luggage space. These hardworking gems are an all around win-win!


Multitasking Beauty Products


1. Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil

With Garnier Miracle Dry Oil you get a single bottle of avocado, olive, and almond oil blend that’s got you covered from head to toe.

Let’s start from the top: It’s a leave-in conditioner for damp hair, a shine enhancer for dry hair, and a protectant from chlorine and salt water if you spray it in your hair before jumping in the water.

You can massage it over your face to moisturize before putting on makeup and afterward on the tops of cheekbones for a healthy glow.

Then, when you’re done with all that, spray it over arms and legs for soft, sexy looking skin. Brilliant!



2. Covergirl Liquilineblast Eyeliner Brown Blaze

You’ve been seriously underestimating your brown eyeliner pencil. Lining your lashes is just the start, especially if your pencil is creamy, like the CoverGirl LiquilineBlast Eyeliner Pencil.

You can draw over your lids, or in the creases of your eyes, and smudge the color with your finger for instant brown shadow.

You can also lightly color in your brows or blend it along your cheekbones for a some contour.

This is a multi-use gem you want in your makeup bag!



3. Coconut Oil

Wanna know a big beauty secret makeup pros swear by? Coconut oil!

It’s rich in fatty acids which makes it a great natural moisturizer. It’s also a dry oil, so it gets absorbed quickly, leaving behind a glow, not a slick shine.

This miracle oil has the same effects on dry hair. Thick-haired mamas can use it as a shine serum, a deep conditioner, and blow-dry prep.

One of the greatest multitasking beauty products ever!



4. Benefit Cosmetics’ Benetint Rose

This stuff is perfect for making your cheeks look naturally rosy, but did you know Benetint can do double duty as a pretty lip flush?

You can’t go wrong with the same dewy pink shade on both lips and cheeks.



5. Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment

You know that Aquaphor soothes chapped lips and softens rough elbows, knees, heels, and cuticles, but did you know it also protects your nose and cheeks from wind burn? It’s true.

You can also stash a travel-size tube in your makeup case and rub a thin layer on your lids for a glossy eye look that’s super cool.

Or, you can smooth it over your brows to keep them in place, or mix it with your favorite powder shadow to create an at-home cream formula.

You get the picture, Aquaphor is multitasking magic.



6. Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream

Available in six shades, this Stila Convertible blush also doubles as a brilliant, long-lasting lipstick.

Its creamy consistency and slightly sheer tint provides the perfect natural glow to both face and lips.

We love a good two-in-one product and this fits the bill. A must-have for the minimalist makeup kit.



7. Living Proof Style Lab T.B.D. Multi-Tasking Styler

Take your styling cream, dry shampoo, texturizer, leave-in conditioner, and other favorite beauty products and just imagine if they could all live in one tube. Well, dreams do come true!

Living Proof Style Lab T.B.D. provides heat protection pre-blowout, adds texture if you’re going for a wavy look, and helps deconstruct any styling mishaps to help make second or even third day hair look great. A mom’s new best friend.



8. NARS The Multiple

No multitasking beauty product list would be complete without NARS The Multiple.

It’s the original multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body. It blends easily and provides a nice sheer color on almost all skin tones.

If you’re going to throw just one makeup item in your bag, this is the one.



9. Clean and Clear Oil Control Film

If you’ve got a long day ahead of you, Clean and Clear Oil Control Film is definitely something you want to throw in your bag.

It instantly absorbs excess oil from your face (without removing makeup). Making it easy to freshen up when you’re on the go.

And did you know you can also use these little sheets to fix skin tone if you accidentally apply too much self tanner?  Yup. Another multitasking hero.
