It's hard to imagine life on a deserted island with just one beauty product, but we've all thought about it: What would we bring with us if we could only choose a single product from our endless collection of cosmetics and skincare? For Nars founder François Nars, it was a no-brainer—and makeup was not the priority.
The legendary makeup artist tells W, "Great sun protection, that is all. You’re on a desert island by yourself or with somebody, you should take SPF to prevent skin cancer." But being the makeup aficionado he is, he also believes one of Nars's best-sellers would probably be useful, too. "Oh, The Multiple (£29). A Multiple with an SPF, because with one stick you do an eye makeup, then cheek and lips. That’s it," he added.
We couldn't agree more with him, but if you ask us, we'd opt for the new, dual-ended version of the Nars favourite, which has a highlighter on one end and a bronzer on the other. The limited-edition multitasker is available in three shades, including the always-popular Laguna. You'll have to get it shipped in via Sephora, but we think it's worth it. So whether you're on a desert island or not, this is one of those makeup-saving summer staples you'll want nearby at all times.
