realbeauty _ Go Natural Look your best on your honeymoon without bringing along your entire makeup kit By Heather Vince Photography by Shannyn Higgins Lash Extensions: Queen Bee Spa Makeup: Heather Vince Model: Sydney As you remove the last bits of makeup from your celebrations and head south for sunny skies, chances are you're looking forward to basking on the beach, not fussing over your makeup. Though keeping your honeymoon beauty routine to a bare minimum is key, you'll still want to put your prettiest face forward for those snaps you'll reflect on years down the road. Whether you plan to be a beach baby or do some sightseeing, the sun will be hard to avoid, so it's important to protect yourself from its harmful, aging rays. Be sure to pack two types of sunscreen: one for the body and another for the face, as the skin in these two areas requires different formulas. For a facial sunscreen, choose one that's lightweight and high-spectrum. And remember, if you're in and out of the water, reapply, reapply, reapply! For makeup application, think light coverage and a light hand. Humidity and high temperatures will be working against you, so leave the heavy creams and foundations at home. Sensitive-skin types might find the combination of sweat and too many products irritating, while oily-skin types could face the risk of a breakout, so less is definitely more here. Instead, opt for a multi-tasking, all-inone product like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream that provides sheer coverage, hydration and SPF. And don't bother packing a powder compact. Applying powder will only hide your skin's luminosity, so keep a pack of blotting tissues on hand instead. 60 real weddings planning guide 2014 p60-61_RealBeauty.indd 60 13-11-26 12:09 PM
