Four Multitasking Beauty Buys

Martha Stewart Living


















By Raya Ramsey
With holiday madness approaching, there are fewer minutes left to spend fussing in the bathroom. Save time (and shelf space) with these four beauty products with major multitasking potential.

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, $70

This potent bottle is great for intended use as cell hydration and damaged tissue repair, but it's endlessly versatile. Store it in the refrigerator to treat eye puffiness (goodbye, cucumbers), mix with tinted SPF to maximize your moisturizing efforts, and apply a dab to untamed brows in place of traditional eyebrow gel.

Kate Somerville True Lash, $35

Taking off the day's eye makeup never felt as efficient as it does with this multipurpose remover and lash enhancer in one. It wipes away waterproof and long-lasting beauty products, smooths fine lines with chamomile, firms the eye area with rosehip and avocado extracts, and creates fuller and longer lashes with its lash-enhancing peptide.

Caudalíe Divine Oil, $48


You can replace a handful of products with this newly launched dry oil made of grape, hibiscus, sesame, and argan oils. Apply to locks for instant shine and static relief, massage into cuticles for manicure maintenance, and apply to arms and legs for moisturizer in the shower or a quick on-the-go glow. Plus, it smells delicious (like rose, grapefruit, vanilla, and cedar) so you won't mind applying it everywhere.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, $22

This eyeliner pot is already a staple of women's beauty routines with its long-lasting wear and creamy, easy-to-apply formula. As it turns out, it's also versatile - if you're a brunette. Bobbi Brown uses this powerful pot three ways. "I use it as liner. I also use it as eyeshadow, and I can put it on my roots in between touchups," she says.
