Makeup for mood ☼ Multi-functionality ☼ Convenience

Consumers are looking to boost their mood, and they are turning to their makeup for support. At the same time, they're looking to use their makeup to express themselves and their emotions. But products must still fit nicely into a consumer's lifestyle, and that means simplicity and convenience are critical to reach busy and overtaxed consumers. Multi-functionality can assist, helping consumers pare down extensive skincare and makeup routines, while a convenient delivery system can help them self-express or mood boost with ease.
