Product hoarders know the struggle of having a ton of makeup all too well. A massive beauty collection translates into major money spent, not to mention sifting through loads of product doesn't exactly make your beauty routine a breeze. Multipurpose beauty products are life savers when you want to get more bang for your hard-earned bucks and cut down on the space your stash takes up.

There's nothing wrong with having a vanity stocked with endless lipstick options and enough eyeshadows to last a lifetime. But having enough product to open your own mini Sephora isn't exactly practical when it comes to getting ready and out of the door faster. Simplifying your morning routine could be as easy as taking advantage of multitasking beauty products, whether you want to hit the snooze button a little more or lazy girl friendly makeup is right up your alley.
