I was watching a video the other day titled “The Ride or Die Makeup Tag” from Jaclyn Hill’s YouTube page: Jaclyn’s Video. I was curious about this, so I thought, “why not do it?”. That’s what led me to write this post. Basically, the rules are to name your favorite makeup product in a variety of categories that you use (i.e. foundation, mascara, lips) that you would bring with you to a deserted island. *Note: all product images are from Google and are not my own. Here are my picks:
Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way in the shade “Pearl”. This foundation is amazing! It covers every possible blemish but still looks natural. I’ve been told by others that my skin looks like it’s glowing. It also has a variety of shades, from pale to dark. I’m on the extremely fair end and it doesn’t wash me out, which is nice. Plus, it comes in a cute bottle. It also lasts for a long time.
Eyebrows: Pixi by Petra Eyebrow Powder with brush. I use the dark brown shade in the palette to fill in gaps in my eyebrows. It’s a natural finish and very easy to use. It makes my eyebrows stand out and look nice without being too dark. I like that the brush is included in the palette. There’s also a brow highlighting color, so it’s nice to have that option.
Chapstick: Burt’s Bees Peppermint Lip Balm. This stuff is amazing! I use it all the time. It really helps chapped lip and is a good base for other lip products. You can get it at the drugstore too; so it’s less expensive. The peppermint is really refreshing and has a nice feeling when you apply it.
Lip Gloss: Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Charmed. This is a nice pink tone that’s fun and colorful but not too overpowering. It has a minty flavor, which is nice. I like the crayon style too; it’s kind of like I’m coloring in my lips.
Nail Polish: Essie’s Topless and Barefoot. It’s a good neutral shade that works for all occasions. It can be fancy or natural depending on what you wear as an outfit. It makes your nails look longer too!
Lipstick: Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxy Lipstick. I like more of the rosy pink shades. I don’t have a preference for one shade over another. It goes on smooth and never feels too heavy. The pigmentation is really good for this one too.
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. This palette has been with me since high school. It has glitter and matte shades in bronze-based tones. It works well with my skin color and is versatile.
Blush: Too Faced Sweethearts Blush. I can’t remember the shade I use, but it’s a pale pink. Bright blushes tend to look weird on me. This is a soft, romantic shade that’s great for everyday use.
Mascara: CoverGirl Clump Crusher. This is really great and it doesn’t cost too much either. I use the black color. It separates lashes well and they don’t get all clumpy and spidery. Two coats is usually enough for me. It gets the job done.
Perfume: Pure Seduction from Victoria’s Secret. It’s long lasting and it smells really nice.
