Desert Island Beauty

Admittedly if I were stranded on a desert island the last thing I’d be thinking about was makeup – but lets ignore that, as that defeats the object of this post haha! I’ve picked 5 products I know I’d be happy with if I really were stranded without my makeup stash.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue | £26

For starts, this has SPF 30 and if I’m going to be stranded on a boiling hot island in the middle of nowhere, I think this could come in handy. I picked this because of how lightweight it is, and how radiant it looks on the skin. If this was the only ‘foundation’ I could ever use again, I’d be okay with that. I love the colour match, the way it feels and looks on my skin, just everything!

Seventeen Stay Time Concealer | £4.49

Bored of me raving on about this yet? I adore this concealer. Its actually light enough for my ghostly complexion and gets rid of those pesky under eye bags like nobodies business! I couldn’t live without concealer thats why I’d take this with me, just to cover up all of those blemishes and dark circles and I feel like this does the best job.

Soap & Glory Solar Powder | £11

Every time I try a new bronzer, I’ll keep going with it for a while but always gravitate back to this beauty. I love the way it subtly bronzes up my skin with such minimal effort, you can’t beat this bronzer. I’d feel like my face was complete if I had this with me on a desert island as well, it just finishes off a look really well.

Benefit Roller Lash | £19.50

The mascara of all mascaras, nothing beats this. Okay well I’m yet to find something that beats it haha. I could easily apply this without a mirror, which I doubt I’d have on a desert island. It doesn’t clump my eyelashes, it separates them well and just looks really lovely, plus lasts literally all day so I wouldn’t have to worry that I look like a panda. All time favourite.

theBalm Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette | £30

I love this eyeshadow palette. You’re probably wondering why I’m not taking one of my UD Naked Palettes, well I hate to admit it but I feel as this palette pips them to the post. I get good use out of every eyeshadow in this palette, and can probably get a good few different looks from it. They’re also highly pigmented and just really easy to blend. So I might not have brushes with me but I’m sure I could use my fingers right?!

What five items would you pick if you were stranded?
