NAKED Urban Decay

2016 Desert Island Products: Makeup

Getting trapped on a desert island is an irrational fear of mine, so what better than a second blog post detailing my weirdly thought out plans for if it happens? I mean, have you seen LOST? I still have not, but I digress.

Makeup is obviously a passion of mine, and a tool I use when I want to look my best. While I doubt I'd care about my appearance while stranded on a desert island, let's pretend. I mean, these are just for fun anyway, right!? Check out my top three must-have makeup products, below.

NAKED Urban Decay Concealer

This product really does feel weightless. It's so buildable, but you really don't need a lot, especially if you color correct your under eyes beforehand.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

I'm all about the fresh and dewy look, and this foundation achieves it effortlessly. The finish feels like you're wearing nothing at all!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

Fake a tan! Not sure I'd have to do that on desert island, but I digress. This one gives your skin the most natural tan look that lasts for many hours, it's flaw-free.

1-2-3: Quick, Natural Eye Makeup!

In a rush? No time for an intro, let's get into this less-than-five-minutes eye makeup look!

It's part of my new blog series, 1-2-3. It's a list-based series focused on quick solutions!

Feel free to swap out any of the products mentioned for comparable ones in your collection.

1. NAKED on the Run

I love this kit! I won it at a makeup class, and have been experimenting with it ever since. It's my first eye shadow palette, so I'm a newbie with this.

I go in with my MAC 233 Split Fibre Eye Shadow Brush to apply the second eye shadow in the included row of five, called Fix. Fix is a soft taupe matte, and it's gorgeous. Ultra natural-looking and barely detectable, it's perfect for the simplistic look I aim for. I keep the pigment on my eyelids, but smoke out the edges with the brush so there's a natural taper; I don't like the look of a harsh line.

2. MAC Cosmetics Full Lash Curler (Drugstore Dupe: Revlon Extra Curl Eyelash Curler)

Next, I go in with my MAC Cosmetics Full Lash Curler and curl, gurl, curl! Nothing like a simple step like this to really open up your eyes.

3. Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Beyond Brown

Oh. My. God. Holy grail mascara, right here. No clumps, no drama, just a great wand in general and a gorgeous, natural brown color. Substitute with the black version if you like a darker look (or use the amazing included Perversion mascara from the NAKED On the Run kit). Don't forget your bottom lashes, if you want your eyes to truly pop!

There you have it! A quick and easy eye look. What's your eye color? Mine's blue! Comment below.
