Newsflash: You donâ€™t need a bag full of products to create myriad makeup looks if youâ€™re willing to get a little creative. Whether you want to rock a glossy lid (without buying anything new) or seriously streamline your application process, the key is thinking outside the boxâ€”so we turned to makeup artist and Creative Director at Mehron Makeup, Stephanie Koutikas, for a few pointersâ€”and pulled together a list of our multitasking favorites.
