Multi Purpose Beauty Products || Guest Post

Hello you gorgeous lot! I'm Charlotte from Surely Char and I'm going to share with ya'll some of my favourite multi-purpose products.

First up is Benefit's Posie Tint. This lip and cheek stain is perfect for, well, lips and cheeks really! I'm a huge fan of the original Benetint but this one is lighter in colour, and the beautiful soft pink hue makes it gorgeous for spring time. I also find that because it is less dark than Benetint, it's easier to blend and more forgiving if you make a mistake and don't want to start again (come on, we've all been there, right?). It's also good for travelling, especially in the smaller size which I have currently. You can get hold of the different tints in these little travel sizes in various Benefit sets. I love a space saving product and this one not only gives great colour, but it's long lasting too. Win.

The next product is another Benefit favourite of mine, Fake Up concealer. This is just beaut. It's got a moisturising outer around the concealer part, so it's really moisturising - almost like makeup and skin care in one. This is sold as an under-eye concealer, but I double up it's uses by using it on my dry areas too so my skin gets the benefit of the moisturiser and doesn't 'drink' the concealer! I was also told by a Benefit MUA that if you have a darker shade, you can use it as a cream bronzer.

An iconic product and bloggers favourite, YSL Touche Eclat. Not just for under the eyes either, oh no. You can use this to highlight areas such as the brow bone, nose, chin and forehead too. I like to use this around my lips before applying lipstick, it stops your lippy from bleeding and makes your mouth look fuller too. A bestseller and much hyped product for good reason.

If you read my blog or follow me on Twitter, you'll know about my great love affair with Illamasqua. I've got 3 items here which all have many uses. The cream blush (I have Dixie) can be used as a lip colour; the cream pigment in Hollow can be used as a cream eyeshadow and is also renowned in the beauty world for being fabulous for contouring pale skin, and the colouring pencil in Vow is a perfect 'nude' colour, which can be used on the water line to widen and brighten the eyes (and is less harsh than using a white pencil), it can also be used around the lips and on the brow line too.

Lastly is the classic black eyeliner. Now we all know what this is for, but did you know you can use it to create ombre lips too? I was given this tip by the gorgeous Roxanne at Simply Roxilicious. There's a fab YouTube tutorial here.

Thanks for reading (and congrats if you got to the end!) I hope you enjoyed this post, if you've got a space or time saving product I should know about please tell me! 

Thanks so much Megan for letting me guest post, it's been a blast :)

  1. I'm a big fan of the Touche Eclat but I did not know that I can use on my lips. I think that is a very good tip. Xx
