Beauty Hacks: All-In-One Skincare and Makeup

These lippies will simplify your beauty routine

I’m all for simplifying my beauty routine, but the one thing I cannot cut out is skincare. If you have good skin, then any makeup product you use will look good. Heck, if you have good skin, then you don’t even need a lot of makeup to look good!

That’s why beauty products that can multi-task hold a very special place in my heart. Happy Skin Cosmetics, for example, is a favorite among beauty newbies and gurus alike because they come up with products that are all-in-one skincare and makeup. Their stuff is top-notch quality and only use good-for-you ingredients — plus, they have the cutest packaging!

My personal favorite from the brand is their Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies. They come in a twist-up crayon form, so application on-the-go is a breeze. But what I love most about these lippies is that they’re ultra-hydrating without compromising pigmentation. You can really get full coverage with just a single swipe!

The shea butter and collagen ingredients also mean that the lipsticks double as some TLC for your lips — you won’t need to put on lip balm beforehand.

Since its launch in 2013, Happy Skin has added tons of new shades to the line, so there’s sure to be something for everyone — from bright ruby reds to everyday nudes, to statement pinks and plums. I actually have several of their nude shades because I find them to be really flattering on my warm Asian skin tone.

If you’re looking at their shade range now and getting a tad overwhelmed, let me save you some time and point you to these two shades which will look awesome on just about anyone: Slaying It and Wonder Woman.

Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies in Wonder Woman and Slaying It

Happy Skin describes Slaying It as a commanding terracotta brown hue, and Wonder Woman as a powerful espresso color. On me, Slaying It is just a little bit darker and rosier than Wonder Woman.

I would wear Slaying It when I want to look more put-together, maybe for a meeting or date night. Wonder Woman, on the other hand, is a solid everyday neutral which I know will look good even with minimal make-up on.

Take a look at how the shades look on me:

Both gorgeous, right?
