A Few Multi-Purpose Products You Didn't Know You Had

by - Tuesday, August 28, 2018

There are a few makeup products that can be multi-functional in a pinch, whether it's forgetting your brow product or forgetting your eyeliner.

If you have a deep neutral eyeshadow, such as a black or a dark brown, you can use it as an eyeliner with an angled brush or a fine liner brush. Brown or black eyeshadow can also serve as an emergency brow powder if you realize that you left your brow pomade at home. Just fill them in with your regular brow brush, but I would recommend going light-handed or having a spoolie around.

Liquid Lipstick
There are many purposes for liquid lipstick, but aside from lips, I have seen many makeup artists on Instagram use colorful liquid lipstick as eyeliner. Just be careful if you decide to use liquid lipstick as an eyeliner as some germs that were on your mouth can easily get on your eyeballs.

Blush, bronzer, and highlighter
I have actually used blush, bronzer, and highlighter as an eyeshadow. Using these three products as eyeshadows is a great way to use up that blush you hate, or that highlighter you find too blinding and glittery.

Traditional lipstick
Traditional lipstick can be used as a blush in a pinch. Just dab a little on your cheeks and gently tap it in, just as you would a cream blush.

Foundations can also be used as concealers. Just dab a little on an area that you would like to cover up and blend it in.

Eyeliner pencils
My mother always uses an eyeliner pencil to fill in her eyebrows, and it's a good alternative if you realize you left that ABH Brow Wiz at home by mistake.

What other multi-use products can you think of?
