How To Multipurpose Your Cosmetics Products 

May 24, 2024

Gone are the days of single-purpose makeup products! Today, women everywhere are embracing the art of multi-purposing makeup products – a game-changing strategy that not only streamlines our beauty routines but also unlocks the full potential of our cosmetics products.  

In today’s blog, the beauty experts at Godefroy will show you how to repurpose and to get the most out of your beauty products. From transforming lipstick into blush, to using eyeshadow as highlighter, we’ll explore innovative techniques and clever hacks that you can incorporate into your day-to-day routine. Let’s get started!  

Lipstick as blush  

One of the most versatile tools in your makeup arsenal is lipsticks and lip tints, which can double as a stunning blush. To achieve this, simply dab a small amount of lipstick or lip tint onto your cheeks, then blend it out with your fingers or a makeup sponge for a natural, flushed look. This technique not only creates a harmonious, monochromatic look but also ensures that your blush and lip color complement each other perfectly. Plus, lip products often have long-lasting formulas, ensuring your blush stays put throughout the day. There is really no need to purchase 2 separate products.  

Use eyebrow tint to tint your lashes

Unlock the versatility of your beauty routine with Godefroy’s Instant Eyebrow Tint, a natural and plant-based eyebrow tint that can effortlessly double as an eyelash tint. This dual-purpose tint is perfect for women who want to enhance both their brows and lashes with a single, reliable product. Infused with gentle, natural ingredients, Godefroy’s instant brow tint ensures a safe application around the delicate eye area. For brows, follow the standard application process to achieve fuller, defined eyebrows. For lashes, apply the step 1 creme colorant using a clean spoolie, starting from the base and sweeping upwards. Allow the tint to set for 2 minutes, then go in and apply the gel activator. Allow the tint to set for 1 minute, and gently remove any excess product. The result is naturally darker, prominent lashes that will complement your tinted brows. With Godefroy’s Instant Eyebrow Tint, you can streamline your beauty regimen while enjoying a cohesive look that lasts. Not to mention the peace of mind that comes from using a product designed with safety and natural ingredients! 

Eyeshadow for highlight

For a stunning highlight, simply sweep your shimmery eyeshadow along the high points of your face, such as the cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose. The finely milled shimmer adds a natural, luminous glow that catches the light beautifully. Also, your favorite highlighter can be applied to the eyelids to create a soft, glowing eyeshadow look. This dual-purpose approach not only simplifies your routine but also ensures a harmonious finish that ties your makeup together seamlessly. Embrace the versatility of shimmery eyeshadows and highlighters to shine with a natural, effortless glow. 

Eyeliner for lipliner

A savvy trick for women looking to streamline their beauty routine is repurposing eyeliner as a lipliner. Eyeliners, known for their precise application and long-lasting formulas, can double as lipliners to create a perfectly defined pout. To use, simply select a shade that complements your natural lip color. Carefully outline your lips, starting from the cupid’s bow and working your way outwards. The eyeliner’s smooth texture ensures an even application, preventing lipstick from feathering and enhancing the longevity of your lip color. This multipurpose technique not only reduces the number of products in your makeup bag but also ensures a matching look. 

Using brow gel for baby hairs

A perfect way to make your brow hair stick and stay is by using brow gel, either clear or the color corresponding to your natural hair color. The gel acts like a sort of glue to give you a more polished appearance. Having your brow hairs move around can be frustrating, and brow hair is not the only frustration you can encounter throughout your day. If you struggle with baby hairs or flyaways on your hair, try using the same clear or colored brow gel to slide those pesky hairs into place. This is a great hack to give your brow gel more use! 

Bronzer for eyeshadow

If neutral is your go-to makeup look, instead of skimming through all the different neutral shades on your eyeshadow palettes, you can use bronzer as a form of eyeshadow! Most makeup tutorials recommend blending in bronzer onto your temple and brow bone. For a bit of consistency, using bronzer on your eyelids can create a subtle eye look and a smooth, neutral base.  


With all the different makeup products out on the market, the thought of buying all of them can be overwhelming! These simple makeup hacks of giving your current products more than one purpose will save you money and time. Experiment with each hack to see if they suit your intended look or, you can discover your own makeup hack! Thanks for reading.
