Taking two hours to get glammed up is like a spa treatment for us beauty junkies. But, just like those treatments, it can’t be an every day thing. Most of us don’t even have an hour or so to get ready in the morning, so we often have to resort to tried and tested multi-purpose beauty products.

Multi-purpose products are amazing because these timesavers will surely get you out the door in under 30 minutes or much less! They’re even perfect for traveling because they take up little space in your luggage! So if you want to cut your beauty routines in half, but still look gorgeous, keep scrolling down for the 6 multi-purpose beauty products that are perfect for travelers and gals on-the-go!

Cushion Foundations

A moisturiser, foundation, and SPF in one? Yes, please! Cushion foundations are all the rage now, and for good reason — they’re extremely compact and easy to use, and they treat and even out the skin! So if you find that you lack the time to properly apply your moisturiser, foundation, and sunscreen, just pat this on your face and you’ll be good to go!

Lip and Cheek Tint

One of the first multi-purpose products to come out in the beauty market, lip and cheek tints have come a long way since then! Now, their formulas range from sheer to opaque, shimmery to matte finishes, and compact to stick forms! Whichever formula, colour, and finish you want, you will surely find it in this 2-in-1 product to give you that natural-but-gorgeous flush!


Contour Kits

When we say “contour kits,” we don’t mean those large palettes, but the tiny ones that look like eyeshadow duos. These kits, if you haven’t already guessed, make great eyeshadow duos! The highlight shade will beautifully awaken your peepers, while the contour shade will add subtle definition to the, so you can get a chiseled face and defined eyes in just one small compact!


Waterproof Mascara

Besides being able to hold a curl for days, waterproof mascaras make excellent eyeliners. How? Simply take an angled brush, dip it into the mascara wand, and line your eyes! If you want to go for a smokey smudged out look, just take a smudge brush and softly brush it up near your lashes for that “perfectly imperfect” look.


Micellar Water

Forget about a separate cleansing balm or oil to remove makeup, another cleanser, and a toner because micellar water will do all of that for you! If you like doing double cleanses to thoroughly remove your makeup at night, just take a second cotton pad and rub this all over your face! It will cleanse just as well and tone your face to get you ready for your moisturiser or cream!


Eyeshadow Sticks

If you’re not a huge fan of contour kits and just want a simple eyeshadow look, then eyeshadow sticks will be your new go-to, which excellently work as eyeliners too! Plus, they’re great for day-to-night makeup transformations because by simply applying it all over your lower lashline, you will have yourself a smokey eye look that took less than a minute to do!

Editor’s Note: We sent our ClozetteINSIDER Contributor, Resa Peralta, to the recent #CreamSilkTransformations event held at the World Trade Center Tent in The Philippines. Here’s her Insider experience at Creamsilk’s latest campaign launch, aimed at empowering the modern Filipina!

--------------------------


It was such a privilege to attend the recent #CreamSilkTransformations event as they showcased the Modern Filipina beauty that goes beyond limitless opportunities. There were hundreds of guests from fashion and beauty professionals, bloggers, and media—all gathered for one goal to empower, inspire, and influence every woman to be their very best and experience a transformation from within.



The event had a lot of fun-filled activities focusing on beauty, fashion, and of course hair care tips. These were showcased in every workshop done by the industry leaders. There were also free hair make overs, free photoshoots from professional photographers, awesome food, cocktails, and freebies from Cream Silk.
One of the most memorable things that happened to me during the event was being asked to be a model at the Metro Magazine Workshop with the professional photographer, Sara Black.



I will never forget this amazing time in my life. This may seem like nothing, but for me it was a transformative moment as I’ve always been struggling when it comes to confidence. Years ago, I could never imagine myself standing in front of so many people because I was afraid that everyone would judge me because of how I look or how weak they perceive me to be. But there I was, courageously and fearlessly standing in front of many people, a living testimony for every woman who struggles with their self confidence! You can be confidently beautiful by believing in yourself and knowing that you are a woman of worth.

The main highlight of the event was the unveiling of the new Cream Silk #ModernFilipinas ambassadors. I witnessed a live cover photo shoot done by the top industry leaders with these beautiful Modern Filipinas: Julie Anne San Jose for Meg Magazine, Coleen Garcia for Preview, Nadine Lustre for Metro Magazine, Heart Evangelista for Mega Magazine, Rachelle Anne Go for Yes! Magazine, and Yassi Pressman for Cosmopolitan.

Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach also made her first public appearance in the Philippines since winning the crown. Pia is such an inspiration and a wonderful example for all women out there who may feel weak or hopeless on their dreams or on themselves. Truly she is the epitome of the Modern Filipina beauty as she encouraged everyone to not give up on their dreams, with the hopes that her experience in the world stage can truly become an inspirational message to every Modern Filipina that aspires to be the best and to be beyond beautiful.

It used to be that our skincare routines only consisted of washing our faces with water and layering on some sort of lightweight moisturiser. But thanks to advancements in technology and a lot of skincare brands, we now know better for our skin. We know that our pores can get clogged, that we don’t have the same skin types, and more. So a typical routine of cleansing and moisturising isn’t enough anymore.

If you’re a person who loves beauty, then you know the benefits of exfoliating and deep cleansing your face after a day of wearing a full face of makeup— it removes every bit of all the products you used to prevent them from giving you new blemishes.

So to give your skin that glow after a long day of wearing heavy makeup, here are the 4 easy steps you need to do to treat and deeply cleanse your skin!

--------------------------


Remove Your Makeup

It’s a crime to sleep with your makeup on — but you already knew that! So end the day by using the NIVEA 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes which has a soft and textured side for that added strength in removing your makeup. The soft side gently removes all the products you used, even the waterproof ones. And the textured side exfoliates and refines your skin to leave it completely clean and soft!

Double Cleanse




But removing your makeup doesn’t completely put you in the clear for blemish-free skin. You will need to cleanse one more time to get there. We suggest using a cleanser with mud or charcoal in its ingredients, like the NIVEA Extra White Mud Foam, which should be left on the face for a few seconds to really draw out all the impurities that were left behind in your pores! 


Use A Toner

Does your skin feel ‘too’ squeaky clean? That’s often a bad sign because it means your skin has been completely stripped. So to restore the balance and moisture in your face, while getting rid of pesky blemishes, apply Witch Hazel to your face! It's a natural based toner that cleans and tightens your pores, while also reducing inflammation and redness.


Finish Off With Moisturiser

No skincare routine is complete without moisturiser. To complete your deep cleansing and pampering session, you need to top off your routine with your favourite night cream or serum, so it can really hydrate and plump up your skin skin for that beautiful, clean, and glowing look!
