Ah multitasking! It’s probably a known rule for all busy moms out there! I’m pretty sure all moms are a pro at it. Whether it’s brushing your teeth while cleaning the house and doing the dishes, or cooking and paying bills online and helping your kid with homework, we all have a task we’re pros at. Being a mom is a full-time job. Especially if one of your kids has special needs, like in my case. That’s why we learn to do things quickly and as efficiently as possible. Let’s face it, waiting for a task to successfully finish so we can start another one is simply not an option on most days (or any day in my case lol). So, I, just like thousands of other moms out there in the world, learned the art of multitasking. Doing two or three things at the same time is quite time saving.
That’s why I love my makeup that can do just that. Having a makeup that can do more then one thing? Is that even possible? Yes, it is! A foundation that also moisturizes your face? A blush that can also work as an eyeshadow and lipstick? Yes, yes and yes! I’ve dedicated this post to tell you about all the fabulous makeup brands that can make your life so much easier! These amazing products have more than one function. Their purpose? Making you save time so you can go back to being the fabulous superhero mom you are!
Yves Saint Laurent – Kiss & Blush
The finish is soft and matt and I love the color choices. These are my absolute two favs #10 Nude Insolent and #8 Pink Hedoniste.
Charlotte Tilbury – Beach Lip & Stick
The tint is sheer and easy to use. It doesn’t feel sticky, just crayon it on and you’re good to go! My personal favorite? The Formentera color.
Bite Beauty Multistick
I absolutely love this clean beauty product Made in Canada. The finish is more powdery, but it blends seamlessly. Use it on the eyelids and for a monochrome (time saving) look. Shown are Brioche and Papaya (cute colour for summer).
Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Cream
I’ve been using this product for years. It’s sooo lovely on the skin and just adds the perfect flush of translucent color. Not sure if this colour is discontinued in “Rose”, but my all time favourite is Peony (guess I’ll have to pick that up soon!).
Lovely subtle matte finish is what you get with this cruel free product. I love the “b.true” colour for a natural look and I just ran a mile flush.
SHISEIDO Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 43
I really like the sheer even finish on the skin. It’s also a great protection from uv rays. The texture is light and very pleasant for combination/oily skin types, and it stays put! Can be used as a makeup base, but honestly, just this and a light powder on the t-zone is golden.
PREP + PRIME BB BEAUTY BALM SPF 35
What can I say? It controls the oily part of the t-zone and blurs imperfections. A little goes a long way with this one. It looks even better when you moisturize before applying it. Not too many layers it’s summer after all!
