You’re on your honeymoon, and obviously, there’s so much more to look forward to than… well…the contents of your vanity kit. But there’s no denying you’re a bit undecided about what you need to pack in the beauty department. Do you really need to carry a hair straighter? Will you use eye shadow?
We’ve put together a list of all the essential beauty must-haves that every bride needs to pack on her holiday to wake up looking gorgeous!
Since Indian skin tends to tan a lot easier, choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more.
We recommend the Lakme Sun Expert Cucumber Lemongrass SPF 50 PA +++ thanks to its light texture and convenient packaging that’ll keep you protected from both UV A and B rays. It’ll ensure that you don’t come back with a bad case of sun burn or three shades darker.
Red Lip Stick
The quintessential red lipstick is the one make-up must-have that all the new blushing brides need to keep close. It occupies the least space and adds the most drama and glamour to any occasion, be it a night out exploring the clubs or a quiet sit-down dinner with your new hubby.
We chose Lakme’s Red Carpet lipstick from Sabyasachi’s Royal Opulent Beauty Collection.
If you’re still wearing the nail colour from your wedding (most new brides will be) be prepared for it to chip. Keep the same shade handy in your vanity kit so can do quick amends to your tips when no one’s looking. We recommend: Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Colour
Cat eyes, pencil liners and even eye shadows can seem a bit over the top on your holiday. Keep to the basics with kohl but be generous with the mascara. It’ll do wonders for your eyes and is, undoubtedly, the best way to seal your look. We recommend the waterproof Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara.
Under Eye Cream
In the weeks leading up to your wedding you might have had many late nights and early mornings and it’s beginning to show. Eye creams are the quick fix you need to pack. They work double time to get rid of those nasty dark circles and brighten skin tone while you get your beauty sleep.
We chose the Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Eye Cream.
