Do you ever think about what you would take with you if you were stranded on a deserted island? Just me? Cool. Ok – well if I was packing my makeup bag for a deserted island, these are the ten items I would take with me. And yes – I understand that you could point out the impracticalities of taking make-up to a deserted island. But who know? You could end up having an Oliver Queen like experience, and traveling the world before becoming a vigilante. I always have these ten things on hand, and I LOVE them.
1.Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
This is my favorite moisturizer I’ve ever tried. It’s an old-school classic, and perfect for my sensitive skin. It’s light enough to work in the winter and summer, and isn’t too expensive, and lasts forever.
2.Clinique Take The Day Off
I’ve tried a lot of makeup removers, and this one actually works. It takes EVERYTHING off without irritating your skin.
3.Clinique Even Better Makeup
This is the perfect foundation – it’s long-wearing, medium coverage, and has sunscreen in it.
4.Clinique Number 2 Toner
I love this stuff – it provides an extra deep clean and mild exfoliate, that helps keep you from breaking out.
5. Burts Bees Facial Cleansing Towels
I carry these all the time when I travel. They make my life so easy, smell great, and are so portable.
6. Burts Bees Tinted Lip Oil
This stuff is part moisturizing lip oil, and part lip color. It is the best long lasting lip moisture, and keeps color on your lips forever.
7. Maybelline Brow Drama
I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to makeup, but I think that having your eyebrows done, makes you look so much more put together. I usually use this even when I don’t wear any other makeup.
8. Clinique Sculpting cheek
I love this stuff – it’s a bronzer and blush in one, which helps with my laziness, which I love.
9. Yes To Coconuts Sheet Mask
I buy face masks in bulk – I love these because they’re easy to travel with, and smell like coconuts (and they’re dirt cheap).
10. Gotcha Covered NYX Concealer
This is the BEST concealer in the whole world, and it’s so much cheaper than any ‘big brand’ I’ve ever bought from a department store. I genetically have dark circles for days – and this stuff is the only thing that will keep them covered all day.
These are my all time FAVORITE products that I always have stocked. I love them, and know you will to.
