The Multiple: My Makeup BFF
We all have our favourites: a super soft sweater, the shoes that go with everything, the book you could read a thousand times. I have several inanimate BFFs that I can rely on: my Nicole Bridger dress, my black paten booties (that is what we call the shoe/ boot right?), the locket and charms from my 2 kids, Bel Canto by Ann Patchet and the multiple.
Oh yes, the multiple is my makeup BFF. The Multiple is a lifesaving product (ok – maybe not lifesaving) time-saving product that I cannot live without. It is a creamy stick that is perfect for cheeks and lips and even eyelids. I love it. Love it.
Does it look odd to wear the same hue on your lips as cheeks? Oh my no. Our lips and cheeks are naturally different tones and the creamy colour will read differently in each location. In fact, the Multiple is perfect for creating that pretty, polished look that makes people say, “You look really great today.”
And who doesn’t love that?
Right now my Multiple BFF is the Freedom Glow Beauty Balm in blushed by Revolution Organics. It provides a fresh pop of colour on my cheeks and a flattering wash of pink on my lips. As a makeup artist I have used it on women with fair complections, dark tones and everything in between.
- To apply to your cheeks I like to use a blush brush. Yep – the same kind you would use with a powder product. I find this gives the most even, natural application of colour. You can also use a makeup sponge or indeed your fingers. There is no wrong way.
- To apply to my lips I use a clean finger. If you have a lip brush handy that is ideal of a heavier application. Finish you lips off with a bit of lipgloss in the middle of your lower lip. This will add shine and fullness.
Be beautiful. Feel good about it.
