Dou­ble-duty must-haves.

Min­i­mal­ism is the spirit of the times and our make-up bags are in line for a cull. But in the world of cos­met­ics where more is more and hoard­ing is rife, how can we pare back but still reap re­sults? The an­swer lies with multi-taskers.

“There’s def­i­nitely a de­sire for high-qual­ity prod­ucts that do more – whether that’s mul­ti­pur­pose or added ben­e­fits,” says Sephora train­ing man­ager An­gelique Ho­gan.

The beauty in­dus­try’s big­gest names and cult prod­ucts help you do more with less. The M.A.C Strobe Cream mois­turises and high­lights, while IT Cos­met­ics CC+ cream gives cov­er­age, SPF pro­tec­tion, ra­di­ance and hy­dra­tion in one.

Luxury cos­met­ics house Dior em­braces ver­sa­til­ity with its lat­est au­tumn/win­ter 2017 col­lec­tion, fea­tur­ing both an eye and lip duo and a blush-high­lighter hy­brid. YSL has also added to its Touche Éclat sta­ble, launch­ing a white ver­sion of the iconic multi-use high­lighter.

While you’re at it, make your ex­ist­ing prod­ucts work harder. “The pink lid is so chic right now, so us­ing a pink balm or lip­stick as a cheek colour and on eye­lids is a great ex­am­ple,” says Ho­gan.
