Beauty expert Jill Dunn shows how to tag team beauty products, so you can look great while saving a pretty penny.

Customize your moisturizer

None of us is the same shade of foundation all year round! This little trick of adding a pump of colour to your daily moisturizer leaves parched skin hydrated and glowy with a hint of sheer coverage. Put a nickel-sized amount of face cream in your palm, a drop or pump of foundation or two and voila – a customized colour. 

Tag team products:
  1. Refresh Botanicals Daily Moisturizer, $18.99
    Visit refreshbotanicals.com for retailers
  2. Joe Fresh Daily Boost Fluid Foundation, $18
    Available at Shoppers Drug Mart

Make your foundation last longer

When you go to the effort of a flawless foundation application, you want it to last. Get even more mileage out of your makeup with a setting spray – this will lock in foundation colour and minimize shine. 

Tag team products:
  1. Revlon Colorstay 2-in-1 Compact Makeup & Concealer, $19.99
    Available at drugstores and select mass-market retailers
  2. NYX Cosmetics Makeup Setting Spray, $10
    Visit nyxcosmetics.ca for retailers

Get hyper-hydrated skin:

Boost your moisturizer with a drop of face oil – your skin will feel softer and smoother. Mix them together, or layer your oil on top of your moisturizer. 

Tag team products:
  1. Live Clean Fresh Face 24 hour Hydrating Day Cream, $20
    Available at drugstores and select mass-market retailers
  2. Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil, $19.99
    Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers 

Give your nails a keratin treatment:

Use the CND Rescue on bare nails in between paint jobs to boost nail hydration/strength. When it’s time to paint, try the revamped Sally Hansen formula – it now contains keratin to reinforce nail strength for 64% stronger nails
for up to 10 days of chip-resistant wear. 

Tag team products:
  1. CND Rescue RXX Daily Keratin Treatment, $25
    Available at salons
  2. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, $9.50
    Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers

Soothe dry lips:

This gritty scrub banishes dry patches, while grapeseed oil and avocado butters in the balm gives long-lasting moisture and colour. 

Tag team products:
  1. Lush Cosmetics Bubble Gum Lip Scrub, $9.95
    Available at Lush stores and Lush.ca
  2. Cover Girl Colorlicious Oh Sugar Lip Balm, $9.99
    Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers

Get rid of scaly skin:

This tag team combo protects your skin while gently cleaning it in the shower. As soon as you hit the bath mat, massage the body oil in to seal in moisture.

Tag team products:
  1. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, $8.99
    Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers
  2. Neutrogena Body Oil, $9.99
    Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers
