Your honeymoon beauty essentials should consist of more than just your factor 30 and a razor!
Don't get me wrong, I am by no means a 'full face of makeup' on the beach or by the pool kinda girl... can't think of anything worse... but, there are a few beauty essentials that everyone needs to enhance that sunkissed glow and nobody does it better than Nars, with perhaps their most iconic shade... the colour of love: Orgasm.
The peachy-rose-gold is perfect for all complexions and works wonders at brightening up even the most zombified complexions.
The shade has been so popular, it's available in a range of cult products...
I applied the illuminator all over my face, before foundation. The colour is a great 'pick-me-up' and definitely gave me more of a 'resting beach face' than my usual 'resting bitch face'.
I love creating different dimensions with makeup, so, after applying the blusher to the apples of my cheeks and creating some subtle contours with my bronzer, I came back in for the kill with the illuminator and used the the liquid-rose-gold to highlight my cheekbones too.
The result was amazing... think authentic Californian girl... perfectly bronzed, but minimal effort. If only I had the long, sun bleached hair, a bangin' body in swimwear and cut-offs... and was a dab hand on a skateboard....
As you know, 'the multiple' can be used in a plethora of ways... lips, cheeks and eyes, so this little stick should be a staple in honeymoon beauty essentials kit!
As I get older, I tend to favour a cream blush formula over a powder, as it gives your skin that well needed plump and youthful appearance. The multiple is perfect for this.
I'd be lying if I said 'I didn't also use this for highlighting purposes too' cos I did... I dabbed a little bit on my temples and just above my brows to complete the look.
... It's also good for getting ready in a hurry.
I absolutely love this range of products, however, I don't think you need them all. If you can only pick one, I'd say go with the multiple as it has so many uses... lips, cheeks, eyes AND highlighter! You can pick one up here.
If like me, you struggle to make up your mind then why not go for the gift set here!
