Everyone who knows me, knows how obsessed I am with makeup and beauty products, so it is very common for people to ask me for advice on products, tips and tricks, and just crazy questions pertaining to one of my favorite topics.  A couple of days ago one of my friends ask me, “If you were stuck on a deserted island and you could only take 3 makeup items with you, what would they be?”, honestly it was a hard question to answer, but I thought that it would make a great topic for a blog post so I thought I’d share my answer with all of you!  

So, if I were stuck on a deserted island, which 3 makeup products would I take with me?  

Hmmm….this is hard, seriously, it’s like being asked, “If you had to pick a favorite child, which one would it be?”, thank goodness it’s only makeup!  

Alright, so first and foremost I cannot live without my waterproof mascara! I have teeny, tiny, barely there lashes and without mascara they are just a hot (or not so hot actually) mess and since I’d be on an island, with lots of water to splash around in, it only makes sense to bring waterproof mascara…right?  My favorite mascara at the moment just so happens to be the tarte limited-edition lights, camera, splashes™ 4-in-1 waterproof mascara, it’s ah-mazing, if you haven’t tried it…you must!

Next on my list of island must-haves would definitely have to be a good lip gloss!  I’ve never been much of a lipstick girl, I prefer lip gloss any day of the week, but I do like to have something on my lips to make them stand out and lip gloss is my go-to product.  Plus, if you happen to be rescued, you want to look your best…right?

Last, but most certainly not least on my list of deserted island must-haves would have to be…drum-roll please…sunscreen!  Alright, this one should be a no-brainer and it’s not exactly a makeup product, but a lot of people skip this seriously crucial skincare step and it’s so important!   Think about it, you’re out in the hot sun all day long and while your tan may be killer, it could actually be a killer, so a great sunscreen with at least SPF 30 is the way to go to make sure that your skin is protected from the harsh sun and will look great for years to come!  

And that my friends, is my 3 deserted island must-have makeup/skincare products.  While I don’t plan on being stuck on an island in the middle of the ocean anytime soon, it was fun to think about which items I couldn’t live without!  

So I want to ask all of you the same question.  If you were stuck on a deserted island and you could only take 3 makeup/skincare products with you, what would they be?

Until next time…


  1. Great list. I use the lights, cameras, splashes mascara every day and love it.

    1. I agree...lights, camera splashes is ah-mazing!

  2. Definitely sunscreen! There's nothing worse than trying to enjoy a beautiful place like an island but with a sun burn.


Can you relate? Well let me know about it!
