I was tagged for this challenge by Beauty Blogger Kate from Kate Loves Makeup and I fully accept. I of course watched Jaclyn Hills video because she is my ride or die you-tuber and I absolutely loved her picks! See her video here.
This was a lot harder than one would think. Pick one product from each makeup catagory (foundation, lips, mascara ect) and choose that product to bring with you on a dessert island. Although I am a beauty obsessed individual I still have yet to try multiple products for these categories. To be honest its because when something works for me I typically stop there. Typically being the key word here … hehe. So lets get into the challenge
RIDE OR DIE MAKEUP PRODUCTS:
Primer: Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer I have been using this for 10 years. It just works. Period.
Foundation: MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation This was easy and hard. Easy because this was my first high end foundation I ever bought and have never looked back. It is so easy to apply because its a powder but settles into the face like a liquid foundation with a matte finish. Hard because I am just recently trying to find the perfect liquid foundation and if I am on a desert island will I want more of a hydrated feeling???
Concealer: NYX Gotcha Covered Creamy, dewy, perfect coverage and does not crease on me. Oh and its only $5.99
Corrector: BECCA Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector I am adding this category because this product is amazing and if you have darkness under your eyes you will fall in love!
Face Powder: MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural I just bought this 3 months ago. Where has this been my whole life????
Under Eye Setting Powder: E.L.F High Definition Under Eye Setting Powder I will admit I am very new to this category and just purchased this a few days ago but I am loving it over the others I have been using.
Bronzer: IT Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Ombre Bronzer This bronzer is huge and provides you with the option for shimmer, matte or mixed if you want.
Highlight: BECCA Cosmetics Champagne Pop Bottom line no one does highlighters like BECCA and this color gives the perfect glow every single time.
Mascara: CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara: Length and Volume all in one with no clumps
Lip Gloss: NARS Turkish Delight The perfect pink gloss
Lashes: Ardell Natural Lash to give that extra pop for a night out, event, ect They never fail!
Eye Shadow Palette: MAC Cosmetics Custom Palette I have been collecting MAC eye shadows for years. I love warm brown colors. Its what I gravitate towards. Some of my favorites are: Espresso – Bronze – Handwritten – Wedge
Setting Spray: MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix + The Travel size is $10 if you are ever interested in trying this. Its a great place to start!
Perfume: Calvin Klein Euphoria: I bought this perfume when my husband and I started dating 12 years ago and wore it on our wedding day. It has so much meaning for me but I truly love the smell and I reach for it over and over again.
Blush: The HARDEST ONE HANDS DOWN. That is why I saved it for last. If you have been following me for a while you know I am a blush /cheek product obsessed person. I seriously can not decide. I have blushes I have hit pan on but would they go with everything? Do I want one with a slight shimmer? Should it be matte? Pink toned? More nude tone? I am going to break the rules and bring three. Again I am sorry, not sorry!
