5 Must Have Makeup Items for your Honeymoon

We have an amazing guest post from our OTGB vendor LadiDa Makeup Artistry today! Laura from LadiDa is here to share with you her top five must have makeup items for your honeymoon! If you are a busy on-the-go bride, these quick tips will save you tons of time pondering on what makeup items to take with you.

As a makeup artist, I'm often asked by brides what makeup to bring on the honeymoon. You might think you'll need ALL your makeup for your honeymoon get-a-way but in most cases that is far from reality. My advice is to pack smart by only bringing makeup you will actually use. Here are my top 5 picks!

BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer

There is no need for full coverage foundations and powders. Instead consider something a little lighter by bringing a BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer. These products are lightweight and are a great way to add a little finesse to your skin without the fuss.


You don't have to look like the palest person on the beach. Just throw on a little bronzer on your cheeks and hairline, and you will fit right in with the other sun-kissed tourists. If you're on the fairer side, make sure the color you choose isn't too orange. If you have a darker skin tone, pick a color that doesn't look too muddy. My personal favorite: Benefit's Hoola Bronzer

MAC Viva Glam V Lipgloss

This lip gloss is the perfect soft neutral pink with a soft golden sheen and was created to go with any skin tone. Plus it contains Jojoba oil to help soften and condition the lips so your lips won't only look good, but they'll feel good too.

Mascara/Brow Product

This category doesn't really need any explanation. Every woman knows the quickest way to make an impact is to throw on some mascara or fill in those brows. My top picks: Maybelline Great Lash and Benefit Browzings.

Makeup Wipes

Your days will be filled to the brim with activities or countless hours of relaxing, so the last thing on your mind might be washing your face. Bring makeup wipes with you as a fail-safe way to make sure your face gets cleaned each night, even if it's just a mild cleanse! MAC Wipes take off any makeup, dirt and grime pronto! Another favorite of mine is Almay's non-oily makeup pads.
