When you're rushing to work, one of the last things in your mind putting makeup on. Luckily, multi-tasking lipsticks are there to save the day, especially since there are great shades that you can wear all over your face—and we mean lips, cheeks, and eyes! Take note of these tan-friendly hues to forever stash in your bag.
1. Rose Brown
When you're going safe and need a bit of color, a lovely old rose is your best friend. We love this Art Stick from Bobbi Brown not just because it's the perfect everyday shade, but because it comes in a portable pencil form which makes for

If you're into a soft apricot look, try this satiny formula from Laura Mercier. It's a sheer color that you can build up and easily blend out as well.

If you'd rather pre-game than spend time on your makeup pre-night out, this deep wine hue is for you. While it's great as a tint for the cheeks, swiping it on your lips and then dabbing it on the lid (just the half near the lash line) makes for a statement matchy-matchy look.

If extra subtle color is what you need, try a flesh tone like this shade from Eye of Horus' Bio Lipsticks, a vegan and cruelty-free line. Aside from it's intended purpose as a lipstick, this is also a totally underrated eyeshadow shade—the lowkey glossy finish it makes on the lid is super chic as well.
Red is an intimidating color, but when used properly, it can give a subtle but sleek finish. Smudge it on your lids and set it with powder for that fresh K-pop look, or if you have really dark circles under your eyes, use it as a primer to your concealer (do so sparingly, though).
