A Godsend for beauties that love a flushed or natural look is the Nars Multiple. The Multiple is a cream stick with a powder finish that will add a sheer flush of color to your lips, cheeks, and eyes. It comes in ten natural shades ranging from a pink champagne accent to a warm apricot tint – there’s one for every beauty.

Use this to highlight, contour, or add a bit of color to your cheeks for a natural finish. You only need your fingertips to apply this product, so you have one less product to bring – your brush or sponge. The warmth of your skin will help the cream melt to a natural, comfortable powder finish.

Get definition, dimension, and more compliments than you can handle from one makeup stick. The possibilities are endless in this multi-use makeup.

2. Benefit Lip & Cheek Stain | $18

This multi-use game-changer traces its roots back to the 70s and continues to wow makeup gurus to this day. The most popular shade is the Benetint, a natural rose shade, but the brand carries a total of six stain shades ranging from a natural pink to a vibrant red.

Glide the doe-foot applicator over your cleansed lips and cheeks, and blend away with just your fingers. This tint is sheer yet buildable, so it’s a great product to start with for makeup novices. The smudge-proof and long-wearing Benefit cheek and lip tint will last you from your 9 to 5 and the family dinner after.

If you haven’t already noticed, I don’t like packing a makeup brush in my purse. Products where I only need to use my fingers are my ride or die.

3. Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks | $18

Let me spill the tea about these Velour Liquid Lipsticks.

Because these liquid lipsticks are 100% vegan, they’re safe to use on both the lips and the eyes! Go for a graphic eyeliner moment or a bold eye look with your favorite lip shade. The formula dries to a comfortable matte finish, and is so opaque you only need one swipe for an impressive color payoff.
