Multitasking Lip & Cheek Tints You Need Now
Two-in-ones, where have you been all our lives? Duo tints, which can be used on both lips and cheeks, are the products your makeup routine is missing. Multitasking lip-and-cheek duos add a healthy, subtle flush while minimizing the number of products you have to buy and the number of products you have to carry with you for touch-ups. Also, they’re great at providing a just-in-from-the-cold glow, which comes in handy when Southern temperatures hover at 65 degrees all winter long. If the winter weather won’t come to us, we’ll create our own—in our makeup bags, at least.
Combination lip-and-cheek products are the unsung heroes of your makeup routine. They are no-fail in terms of effortless application and natural wear. That's why we’ve rounded up some of our favorite lip-and-cheek products for you: Some are stains, some are creams, some are oils, and some defy categorization altogether. Because all of these products seamlessly blend one color onto lips and cheeks, they create cohesive looks with singular hues. Another bonus? When you’re getting ready in the morning, these genius products let you apply your makeup with minimal focus, which is perfect for those days when you’re still a little sleepy but need to be ready in a hurry. Your shortcut to polish is simple: All it takes is three swipes—cheek, cheek, lips—and a quick blend, and you’re ready for the day ahead.
