There’s no such thing as a wedding day comedown when you’ve got the holiday of a lifetime to look forward to  your honeymoon! So, you’ve packed your passport, got your fave bikinis, but what about your beauty bag? Here are our skincare and make-up essentials to ensure you are postitively glowing for your dream holiday.

Even if you don't take anything else in your honeymoon holdall, packing a sun cream is so important for protecting your skin against UV sun damage. We're obsessed with this Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Sand Milk that repels sand  no more turning into the sand monster after application (woohoo!).

Salt spray
It's funny how those beachy 'I've just hopped off my surfboard' waves are definitely not achieved by simply taking a dip in the ocean. Fake the look with a little help from a sea salt spray and get ready to do some serious hair flicking!

Fake tan
Day one of the honeymoon and your legs may resemble two milk bottles (us too). Avoid the beach embarrassment and apply a gradual tan a few days before your trip. The Fake Bake Amplify Gradual Tan is our fave for a streak-free finish. 


BB cream
Hopefully some much-needed sunshine will clear up your blemishes, so you should find you don't need a heavy foundation. Leave your full-coverage one at home and opt for a lighter BB or CC cream to let your skin breathe.

Body oil
Don’t be scared of body oils – they can seem greasy, but used sparingly a shimmering oil can moisturise your skin amazingly and give you a gorgeous glow. Top tip: a streak down the centre of your legs will make them appear longer (Kendall Jenner eat your heart out).

Lip balm
Hot and humid climates can be oh-so drying on the skin and most people actually forget about the delicate lip area. A humble lip balm will keep your pout baby soft.


Waterproof mascara
This is a no-brainer beauty buy  no one wants inky panda eyes while trying to do a sexy Baywatch run out of the sea do they?!

Face mist
Whether it's for a refreshing spritz on the beach or a hydrating boost before dinner – a wonder product like Sisley’s Floral Spray Mist, will become your new best friend! 

Find an exotic, warming scent that screams balmy nights and choose the miniature size  that way it will take you from carry-on to clutch bag.
