DESERT ISLAND BEAUTY


I've seen so many of you re-creating this post of your desert island beauty picks- I took this so seriously it's laughable. I wear so much make-up on a daily basis so being stranded on an island with minimal products is my idea of hell.  At first I thought, well, it'll be easy, I'd just take my favourite product from each 'category,' but when I really thought about the conditions on a desert island I changed my mind and I'm quite surprised at what I ended up choosing. Of course, ideally I'd take all my make up, but if I was stranded on a island far away living out of a bagpack, that just wouldn't really work well would it? Narrowing down to a five product face scares me, I'd feel really uncomfortable without my layers on so hopefully I'm never really in this situation.

For base I picked the new Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation. I chose this because it gives a healthy, natural looking finish that isn't dewy nor matte. The heat on an island would dry my skin out so I don't want a full coverage drying foundation, but at the same time I don't want it to be dewy and melt away and I felt like this was perfect. And of course there's the benefit of there being a good SPF in there!

I thought taking my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit was a really clever idea. I can obviously contour, but there's also three powders in the palette that I can use to set my make up, one that's pale enough to use all over my face. No sweat for me.
I also thought I could use the contour shades as eyeshadows? I usually go for a brown smokey eye but I could compromise and make it work with these 3 brown shades. It's a three in one!

Of course, I wouldn't be me without my fake lashes, so I'd have to take a pair just to make myself feel a lot better. I use Eyelure 212 or 143. I feel like having lashes on would make me look more put together, despite the fact I'm really not.

For brows I chose the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer, (comparison post coming soon for those of you that like Brow Wiz.)
I chose this because I feel like it's the most sturdy, and the only brow product I might be able to get away with using as a faint eyeliner. It gives the most natural finish out of all my products- and if my face looks bare it's going to look ridiculous having painted on Dipbrow Pomade brows.

Of course, I would have to have a lipstick with me, and what better option than a Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Shine?
Matte lips are drying enough without the added factor of being on a desert island, but this baby is the complete opposite, a glossy nude lipstick with amazing staying power and moisture. Once the shine is gone the stain stays on the lips. The shine also makes me lips look a lot bigger so it saves me having to take a lip liner, sneaky.

What would you take with you?
