Multi-Tasking Makeup That Will Make Your Life Easier

Not only are multi-purpose makeup products a great way to speed up your routine when you're in a hurry, but I also love to get the most out of them by doubling up their uses for example, using a bronzer to warm up the skin which also works wonderfully as an eyeshadow. After all, we do spend quite a bit of money on makeup (and so worth it), so why not get more bang for your buck by using them in several different ways?
