WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IN A MULTI-USE PRODUCT
1 It has to be blendable. If you want to use it on different features, it has to have a creamy consistency that spreads easily, especially over a large area like the cheeks.
2 It can’t be drying on skin. Your lips will flake if you apply your usual eyeshadow on them, but multi-purpose makeup should address such situations. To prevent caking or flaking on any part of your face – not just the lips – go for a product with hydrating ingredients such as oils and botanical extracts.
3 It must be transfer-proof. The last thing you want is for your makeup to smudge all over your face, especially if it’s on your eyes, cheeks and lips all at once. Even if it has a creamy finish, it shouldn’t budge. Or, look out for products that dry to a matte finish.
