There’s nothing we love more than a hard-working beauty product. Versatile makeup and skin care essentials truly make life easier, leaving more space in your beauty bag (and budget) for luxury hair and beauty investments.
Not to mention that the beauty industry is the biggest global contributor to plastic waste… So it’s good to cull your products and opt for a sustainable beauty routine where you can.
But that doesn’t mean you have to skimp on quality or pay-off. There are plenty of multi-use beauty products that go above and beyond when it comes to performance.
Here, we’ve rounded up the best multitasking products to add to your collection.
