By Lisa

The holidays are always a busy time so I thought it was the perfect time to introduce some multi-tasking beauty products to help make primping a breeze. Taking shortcuts while getting ready can be helpful, but if you’ve got a bag full of multi-tasking beauty products on your side, getting ready will be a walk in the park. Get your shopping lists ready, ladies!

1 Becca the One Perfecting Brush

Becca the One Perfecting BrushPart of the beauty of multi-tasking beauty products is that you have less stuff to haul around. Becca’s The One Perfecting Brush just might replace some of your makeup brushes, which is ideal for gals who travel frequently. This large brush promises to cut makeup application time in half by replacing 10 makeup brushes and tools. This soft, goat hair brush applies foundation, powder, blush, contour, bronzer and concealer all in one brush. Get yours for $49 at

2 BareMinerals Broad Spectrum Multi-Tasking Face

BareMinerals Broad Spectrum Multi-Tasking FaceThis beauty product might look simple and boring, but I think you’ll be quite amazed at what this mineral powder can do. BareMinerals’ Multi-tasking Face can be used as both an eye makeup primer and concealer. Most multi-tasking beauty products are pretty straightforward, like a lip and cheek stain, but I’ve never seen a unique product like this that doubles as a primer and concealer. Find it for $18 at

Smith’s Rosebud Salve in a TubeThis cult classic beauty product definitely deserves a spot on this list of multi-purpose makeup.

Soothe burns, tame brows, accent your cheekbones or décolletage, calm skin irritations from colds or windburn and apply it to your cheeks for a dewy glow. You know you’re going to need a good multi-tasking moisturizer when you’re trekking from mall to mall for holiday sales! Get it for $6 at

4 Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry OilIf you have dry skin and hair, I’m sure the winter weather can be pretty rough. Luckily, there’s a wallet-friendly oil that’ll help keep you moisturized from head to toe. You can use Garnier’s Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil on your face, body and hair. Use it as a shine spray, leave-in conditioner, protectant against salt and chlorine and a face and body moisturizer. I love The Body Shop’s Beautifying Oils, which can be used the same way as this dry oil, but you can get this one for less than $5! In fact, it's just $4.97 at

5 Shiseido Translucent Loose Powder

Shiseido Translucent Loose PowderWhat’s so special about this loose powder, you ask? Well, Shiseido’s translucent powder, which comes in loose and pressed forms, happens to be one of the best in the beauty biz and you can use it for so many things! Aside from using it to set foundation and keep oil at bay, Allure reports that this powder is used by makeup artists to help soften blush, bronzer and eye shadow, thicken lashes and create matte lips. Grab it for $35 at
