A long-wearing stick concealer makes a great lip and eye
primer because it’s meant to stay all day. For eyes, add color soon after you
apply so you can press the color into the concealer before it dries. For lips,
let the concealer dry first so the color doesn’t mix. As an added bonus,
applying concealer under your lipstick will make the color ten times brighter!

Multitasker #2: Use mascara as eyeliner
If you find yourself without eyeliner, you can dip a thin
liner brush into mascara and swipe it on as eyeliner. If your formula is a
little thick, try dipping the brush in water before you swipe the mascara to
soften it up a little bit, which will help create a smoother line.
Multitasker #3: Use lipstick as cream blush
This one is a tried and true trick that makeup artists love
to use for custom color. It’s especially great in the summer when you want to use
creamy face makeup for that dewy glow. Swipe a little lipstick on your
fingertips, rub them together and blend on to your cheeks. Start with a little
bit of color and build up slowly. Make sure not to use a matte lipstick, as it
can come out looking caked on instead of fresh.
Multitasker #4: Use powder to mattify lipstick
This is one of our personal favorite tricks. If you have a
pretty pink or rad red lipstick and want to wear it matte, follow these steps.
Apply a generous coat of lipstick to lips and get the color you want. Then,
softly pat powder on over the lipstick with a makeup sponge. Don’t press too
hard, or you may rub off some of the color. Once the powder has set, lightly
dab on another layer of lipstick to seal in the powder and keep the color vibrant.

Multitasker #5: Use bronzer as eyeshadow
This trick is great for achieving a pretty, all-over bronze
look that is totally perfect for summer. Use bronzer as you normally would,
then dip an eyeshadow brush in the bronzer and apply all over primed eyelids.
You want to use primer, since the formula is going to be less opaque than a
traditional eyeshadow. Try a matte bronzer for day and amp it up with a
shimmery bronzer at night.
