Your time and money are precious commodities but that doesn't mean you have to short-change your beauty routine. To help you get started on your spring makeover, here's a list of our favorite dollar-stretching multi-tasking beauty tricks.
Tint your lips and cheeks
Freshen up for spring with a pretty "girl next door" flush. Try a lip stain in a rosy or coral hue and dab it on your cheeks for a natural glow.
Get luminous with shimmery eye shadow
Use golden or shimmery pink eye shadow as a highlighter on your cheeks and brow-bones. Dab it on your neck and chest for a fresh-yet-sultry evening look.
Apply 2-in-1 moisturizer with sunscreen
You don't need to layer on a skincare treatment product, moisturizer and sunscreen each morning. Make a multi-purpose hydrator with antioxidants and SPF 15 your go-to daily skin protector.
Prime and hydrate at the same time
Prep your skin for long-wearing makeup and reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores with a primer that plumps the skin with hydration. Opt for an anti-aging formula that protects against UVA and UVB damage.
Tame brows with clear lip balm
Keep your lips kissable and make your brows stay put with a lightweight clear lip balm.
Use conditioner as shave gel
Out of shave gel? No problem. Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs instead. It works just as well and will leave your skin unbelievably soft and supple.
