Moll’s Beauty Bag: Multi-Tasking Products For Multi-Tasking Days


Back to school means back to the business of hustle and bustle for most folks today. Am I right? And, beauty often falls by the wayside. I mean, we barely have time for lunch, yet alone a lovely makeover. But, there are tons of products out there that can take us from home to the gym to carpool to the office to afterschool activities to date night, just as long as we remember to keep them in our beauty bags. Here are a few of my multi-tasking must-haves that you must keep handy this fall!

Laura Mercier SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating ($44): This multi-tasker combines sunscreen, illumination and flawless coverage all in one ready-to-travel tube. It lasts all day long, while leaving you with a youthful, radiant glow, and buildable sheer coverage, so you can add a little after a long day, and before that dinner date.


Neutrogena Healthy Skin 3-in-1 Concealer For Eyes ($9.49): Ask anyone, and the first place where we show fatigue and age is under the eyes. To wake yourself up at lunch or after a grueling day, carry this concealer in your purse. It instantly hides dark circles, reduces the look of puffiness, and protects the delicate eye area with a broad spectrum SPF 20. Not only will it conceal, but if you have a little eye makeup meltdown, it can help clean that right up in mere seconds.


NARS The Multiple in South Beach ($39): When you’re in a pinch, but don’t want your cheeks to look pinched, this bronzed apricot multi-purpose stick is the way to go. It can be easily applied to cheeks, lips and eyes for an instant sunlit pick-me-up. And, no need for brushes, the formula is warmed by your fingertips for perfect, streak-free application.


Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick ($30): This luminous lip color is perfect when you want a pop of color on the lips. But, it can also do a double shift like you do, by doubling as a creamy blush, perfect to add some flush to the face.
