Time is of the essence more so now than ever before, so we like having all our essential beauty products in the one place to take the stress out of getting ready. Putting together your own all-in-one makeup kit will save you precious time as well as making those on-the-go touch ups so much easier. Putting together your perfect all-in-one kit comes down to personal preference. Think about the products you reach for the most and the products you wish you had on hand throughout the day, then work from there. Not sure where to start? Here’s five of our favourite products to have handy day and night.
While the key to on-the-go makeup application is products that can be applied using the fingers, some things really do require a brush. The jane iredale Refill-Me Refillable Loose Powder Brush is the perfect addition to your all-in-one kit as it reduces your brush and powder foundation down to just one tool. Fill the handle with your Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder Foundation to apply your foundation directly from the brush, or use it as a setting powder to mattify or freshen up your base throughout the day. Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder is also SPF 20, so you can use it to top up your sun protection before you head outdoors on your lunch break.
Blush is one of those transformative products that can make your whole complexion look fresher and healthier. A cream blush, like the In Touch Cream Blush, is formulated to be applied using the warmth of your fingers, which means you don’t need to add another brush to your all-in-one toolkit. Bonus points, as it can be used as a creamy lip tint too!
The In Touch Highlighter is as easy to use and similarly versatile. Apply to the high planes of the face to catch and diffuse the light to give the skin an ethereal glow, apply to the eyelids to brighten tired eyes and add a touch to the cupid’s bow to create the illusion of a fuller pout.
A clear mascara or brow gel is an all-in-one kit essential as it can be used to groom unruly brows or to condition and add shine to eyelashes. Use it to brush brows up and out to keep your look fresh and youthful, or to lengthen and define each individual lash.
No all-in-one kit is complete without a hydrating setting spray. POMMISST Hydration Spray allows you to refresh tired skin, add life to foundation as it starts to settle into any creases or dry spots as the day goes on, deliver a hit of moisture to a dehydrated complexion and set your makeup in place - all in one spritz!
Prefer the thought of your all-in-one kit being curated for you? Opt for a Pure & Simple Makeup Kit to pack two pressed powder foundations, a blush, two eye shadows, a lip and cheek stain and your brushes into the one portable, all-in-one makeup kit.
