I don’t know about you, but I personally don’t have enough hours in the day. There’s always so much to do and so little time. However, when it comes to my beauty routine, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that save time, space and of course money. Who can say no to that? Here are a few of my tried and tested beauty multi-taskers.
1. Mac Studio Quiktrik Stick in All Aflush/Here You Go
This is one of my all time favorite makeup sticks. I always have one in my purse and it's also the perfect travel companion because it can be used as a lipstick, blush and even an eye shadow. The dark burgundy color can be used as a dramatic coloured lipstick or can add a pop of colour to cheeks as a blush. The light, gold-specked rosy side is perfect for use as an eye shadow, light colored lipstick or a rose blush. It really is a true make-up multi-tasker.

2. Bioderma Photoderm Nude Touch This is an amazing product that works really well for combination skin. It’s a primer, moisturizer, SPF and a foundation all in one little tube. The cream is super lightweight, protects from UVA and UVB rays all the while providing a little color. It even boosts skin radiance and controls oily skin. What’s not to love?

3. Shiffa Healing Balm
This product is created with a secret blend of 15 healing plants. Its' texture in the jar looks like a thick balm but once applied to skin it transforms into a liquid gold oil that is incredibly luxurious. This product has so many uses. It can be used as a serum, boosting the effects of your moisturiser, as a primer, to even out skin before applying foundation, and even as an extremely hydrating eye cream. It's also ideal for treating burns, but the best thing about this beauty balm is its intoxicating scent.

4. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment
This product is a hair hero product. Do you know a product that can lift roots, smooth frizz and give you shiny, bouncy hair? It doesn’t compromise on styling or treating because it allows you to do both at the same time so look no further, this product really does give you perfect hair days.

5. MZ Skin Cleanse & Clarify
This multi functional cleanser and mask is a true skin savior. Not only does this dream product have a blend of alpha hydroxy acids and fruit enzymes to cleanse and exfoliate but when used daily as a cleanser it removes makeup, refines pores, and also boosts cell renewal. For the va va voom effect, apply a thick layer to skin and let it set for 10 minutes. Rinse and you will look rested, renewed and refreshed. Cheers to that!
