5 Beauty Essentials You Need for Your Honeymoon

 

Today one of our destination guru friends has stopped by to share some of her favorite finds for you!  Sarah Carrillo Riswick, the editor over on Destination42 knows a thing or two about bridal beauty and packing your bags and hitting the road.  But what does she pack?  What does she suggest you take on your honeymoon?  What bridal beauty is a must after your big day?  Well, Sarah’s got all the answers for you today!

honeymoon beauty essentials 5 Beauty Essentials You Need for Your HoneymoonAfter getting all glammed up for your wedding day you’ll probably want to take it easy on your honeymoon. But it’s worth it to bring a few products with you so you can nail that “I just woke up this fabulous” look.

No. 1: Tinted lip balm with SPF
A subtle pop of color on your lips will make you look pulled together, even after one-too-many margaritas And you can dab a little on your cheeks to give you a natural-looking flush. I love Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatments, the color is sheer but lasts.

No. 2: Eyelash curler
Mascara (even waterproof) is more effort than you really need to be making on your honeymoon, especially during the day when you’ll rarely take off your sunglasses. But curling your lashes will open up your eyes and make you look more awake. Plus, it only takes a few seconds.

No. 3: Smoothing serum
Most beaches = serious humidity and frizzy hair. So bring along a good smoothing serum or leave-in conditioner. Bonus: using these products before you go in the pool or ocean can help protect your hair and keep it soft.

No. 4: Dry shampoo
A must for greasy roots (aka brides trying to make that wedding-day blowout last just a little bit longer) or to give your hair more volume and texture. My favorite is Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, it smells amazing.

No. 5: Nail stickers
OK, so maybe these aren’t essential but they’re a great way to update your nails if you stuck with a safe nude polish or French manicure on your wedding day. You can apply them in your hotel room easily (or on the plane since there isn’t a strong polish smell but they can be a bit messy). Most will last at least a week, sometimes two, without chipping.

You may notice that sunscreen is missing from this list, but come on, that’s a no-brainer, right? One tip though, make sure you pack plenty because many resorts will charge outrageous prices for a tube of Coppertone.

Thanks so much Sara for these great honeymoon finds!  For more on her favorite travel musts, locations and advice, be sure to check out Destination42.
