Whether you love being on-the-go or just prefer a minimal beauty routine, having multi-purpose products cuts down on time, an overcrowded vanity, and ultimately, expenses.
You don’t need a lengthy skincare routine or a 20-step makeup tutorial to achieve the look you want. Plus, for those trying to reduce their environmental impact from single-use plastic packaging, multi-use products are the best of both worlds. If you’re curious about how these marvelous multitaskers can streamline your mornings, you’re in luck! We’ve rounded up five of our favorite multi-use beauty brands.
Ilia Beauty is a functional yet natural cosmetics line full of drool-worthy products; a few of which are conveniently multi-purpose. Made with organic ingredients and safe synthetics, best-selling products like the Multi-Stick and Color Haze blends seamlessly into your cheeks and lips. If you are more of a matte-lover, Color Haze offers a powder-like finish in a near-liquid formula. Color Haze is highly pigmented and comes in 5 shades ranging from cool pink to soft brown.

If you are looking to minimize your skincare routine, Grown Alchemist is a clean, luxury Australian brand that is 100% cruelty-free and organic. Their Hydra-Mist+ Desert Lime, Amino Peptide (click here) is unlike most facial mists on the market.
Instead of including drying alcohols or irritating fragrance, Grown Alchemist’s facial mist contains hyaluronic acid and antioxidants that visibly soften, smooth, and soothe the skin while reducing signs of aging and boosting your skin’s glow.
Many other sprays just feel nice in the moment, but Hydra-Mist+ actually helps your skin over time and helps reduce signs of aging. The vegan and non-toxic formula is ideal for amping up your everyday moisturizer or refreshing your skin with a boost of hydration throughout the day.
Subtlbeauty has changed the game when it comes to all-in-one convenience. We have seen brands launch stackable eyeshadows or lipsticks, but when you are on-the-go you only need your most basic must-haves, not three different shades of lipstick. That’s why Subtlbeauty created their customizable compact stacks.
They carry everything you need for a full face of makeup in convenient sizes and stackable, on-the-go packaging. They have creamy lip and cheek colors (click here), medium coverage mattifying concealer (click here), a universal shine control powder (click here), a champagne powder highlighter (click here), and a cool contour and warm bronzer (click here), each cost less than $15.
These stackable compacts are so sleek that even the full collection is no bigger than a child’s bottle, yet they still pack enough product to last you two months of everyday wear.
If you prefer your multi-purpose makeup in cream form, the Au Naturale Anywhere Creme Multistick (click here) is your all-star, go-to product. This creamy stick format is ideal for quick, blendable application and impossible to overdo.
The multisticks come in 7 unique, pigmented shades that all contain a hint of shimmer that is undetectable on the skin. You can pair them up or use your favorite for a fully monochrome look on the eyes, lips, and cheeks.
What makes these sticks so fantastic is their versatility. They are creamy enough to blend and add a gorgeous dewiness to your skin, but they also stay put all day.
If you are the most minimal of minimal beauty lovers looking for one product to grab and go, RMS Beauty has the one-and-done magic compact for you. Their Signature Set (click here) contains their best-selling, cult-favorite products in one simple compact for you to carry with you at all times. It comes in two versatile shade combinations for blush, lipstick and more multitasking functions.
The Mod Collection is a bit softer and more natural while their Pop Collection has more bold color choices. Both compacts are petite and sleek while packing a beautiful punch in the pigment department.
