Beauty products come and go, and they're constantly evolving. Still, there have to be some staples that always work when you need them, right? This is why the recent trend of celebrities and celebrity makeup artists revealing their favorite go-to products is so nice. This gives people at home an immediate insight into the best beauty product on the market, which can help save them time and money in the long run.

One such celeb who isn't afraid to share her favorite beauty products is Jamie Chung, an actress and model known for such series as "Once Upon a Time," "Lovecraft Country," "The Gifted," and more (via IMDb). She's even known for her philanthropic work. But what makes her qualified to dish out beauty advice?

In addition to loving beauty, Chung runs a fashion blog called What the Chung, where she discusses trends, her favorite fashion items, and much more. This is where the model side of her career is allowed to really shine, and it's where she can best explore the beauty world. After all, when acting, you don't often have too much control over your hair, makeup, or costumes. We still haven't forgotten her 2021 SAG outfit, for example.

This is the one beauty item Jamie Chung would take with her to a deserted island

While Jamie Chung's beauty recommendations are red hot, the actress has said that she wasn't always into makeup and fashion. "So, I didn't wear makeup in high school — I was a tomboy," she told Byrdie, then saying that she began wearing makeup actively during her freshman year of college. But which products have stuck with her?

Chung told Byrdie that she's experimented with some makeup products, but that she still has her favorites that she relies on. For example, the actress swears by the brand Make Up For Ever, a more expensive name but one whose quality matches their price tags. Of particular worth to Chung are Make Up For Ever's Ultra HD Foundation and their Rouge 7 Lipstick Palette. For her lips, Chung also uses the Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub from Bliss.

Other favorite products from Chung include Jergens' BB Protect Perfecting Body Cream and Make Up For Ever's Graphic Liner, which she uses for her cat eye makeup looks. In fact, she loves the Jergens cream so much that she said she would take it with her to a deserted island. "I would take the Jergens BB Protect with me — not only does it keep my skin super smooth, it refines and it has SPF 15 to protect, which is extremely important on an island, obviously," she said. 

Ultimately, these are the products that Chung needs in her daily rotation, but the actress is open to trying new products.
