Today's pick comes from Racked LA associate editor Natalie Alcala.

Naked2 Palette by Urban Decay, $50 at

Every few months, I like to think about the items I'd need if I were ever in a Cast Away situation. After listing the obvious, necessary-for-survival-type stuff like food, water, and sunscreen, I narrow down all the clothing and beauty products I'd need, in case I bump into, say, Leo DiCaprio's character in The Beach. (I watch too many movies.)

One item that always makes the cut is Urban Decay's Naked2 Palette. Equipped with 12 neutral shades in a range of rich pigments, this beauty essential will take your look from classy to foxy faster than you can draw Wilson's face on a volleyball. Both a time and space saver, convenient touches like a built-in mirror and dual-ended application brush make it well-worth the $50 price tag.
