The Top Multi-Use Products for Lips and Cheeks

Give every feature a boost with these multitasking products

One of the biggest makeup trends for 2021? Multitasking beauty products. These don’t just help you save time and money, you can also create a simple and runway-ready look in seconds by using a multi-use makeup product for your lips and cheeks! Monochromatic makeup is a major look, and you’ll be simply sweet with the same flush of pink on your pout and the apples of your cheeks. Or you could go a little more bold with a lilac or maroon shade, leaving you with a minimal makeup look that blurs the lines between edge and elegance. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your makeup routine for Zoom school or a FaceTime first date, these are the best multi-use makeup products for lips and cheeks on MIRA BEAUTY that you need in 2021.

“I honestly fell in love with this product. I use it everyday, and it lasts me all day long.” You and everybody else, babe. Our MIRA community is obsessed with the Benetint Lip & Cheek Stain by Benefit, a multitasking beauty product that builds intensity and leaves you with a flawless, full-face makeup look. It’s one of the original lip and cheek tints - way before 2020 made makeup multi-tasking a thing - and is available in one rose-tinted color that looks gorgeous on all skin tones. Simply apply and let it dry to a sheer tint, and watch as your lips and cheeks receive a pretty and pigmented burst of color. Speaking of which, leave it to Benefit to create a beauty product that’s almost too pigmented. One review has a great tip for those wanting to tone it down a bit. “A little tip,” our MIRA guest writes, “if you don’t want it to be as pigmented (it is very pigmented) you can use a chapstick and put two dots on your lips and blend it, and you have a beautiful reddish look to your lips.” Our community can’t get enough of Benetint - with 96% of guests saying that it’s long-lasting and 99% calling it lightweight.
