Stranded Island Beauty - Top 3 Must Haves

Say you’re stranded on a desert island and can only have three beauty items with you. How in the world do you narrow down that huge makeup bag to only three things?

What can you live without? While most of us will never face a situation like this in real life, we are sometimes put in situations where we need to get ready in a hurry or can only fit so many beauty items in our purse. When we are stuck in situations like this, we go back to the basics. These are the three best beauty items for any occasion to make you look and feel like a million bucks.

  1. A good moisturizer. Nothing is worse than dry, uneven, scaly skin and using a moisturizer can make your face look more hydrated and youthful. If you are prone to acne, it is best to use a moisturizer that is fragrance free to prevent breakouts. A good moisturizer should feel light and leave your skin feeling hydrated, but not oily. Moisturizer should be used on your face and neck daily for the best results. We love Skinjoy Moisturizing Spray, it is a favorite because it refreshing, calming and soothing. Better yet, this product is sulfate and methalbarabyn free & pH stable. Win, win?

  1. 2. Lip Gloss. I never leave home without my lip gloss. Have you ever seen someone with dry, crackly, pale lips?  Odds are you don’t want to be one of those people. Lip gloss kills two birds with one stone because it hydrates your lips, and adds a bit of sparkle and shine to bring attention to your perfect pout. Lip gloss is especially essential if you’re going on a date with the opposite sex. Men are naturally drawn to a woman’s lips. You wouldn’t want yours to look sub-par would you?

One coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes can be a huge transformation if you’re looking tired, sick or otherwise under the weather. Just don’t overdo it. The idea is not to look like Madonna’s early 90’s tarantula lashes. A subtle coat of mascara brings a bit of attention to your eyes and helps them stand out. The last thing you want during an important meeting is to look like you’re falling asleep!


Long gone are the days of lugging around a huge train case of cosmetics to stay beautiful all day long. Make a little room in your purse, take out all the unnecessary beauty items and keep the moisturizer, lip gloss and mascara. Now you’re ready to face the world!
