September 25, 2015
We all want to look stunning on our special day but the opportunities for picture perfect moments don't end there. If only we could bottle up that romantic glow and carry it with us on our honeymoon - and lucky for us, now we can. Thanks to makeup artist and certified eyelash extensionist, Tymia Yvette, we've got the inside scoop on honeymoon makeup must-haves so that that beautiful bridal smile doesn't disappear. For even more beauty inspiration, don't miss all the pretty pics in our VAULT right this way!

TIP 1 - Wake Your Skin Up With Moisture

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer is the best 2-in-1 face product. It protects your skin from harmful sun rays with SPF of 20. It's also a moisturizer with a tint of color that gives your complexion a radiant, youthful glow for that "no makeup" look.

If your skin naturally has radiance and you don't need the extra luminosity (first, thank your parents), try Laura Mercier Oil-free Tinted Moisturizer. This product gives you the same benefits but contains oil controlling ingredients to control shine breakthrough.

My favorite technique for applying tinted moisturizer - use your hands! The warmth from your fingertips allows for the product to blend into the skin seamlessly.

TIP 2 - Get A Youthful Look By Creating A Full, Well Shaped Brow

The best way to do this is by using the Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil. No need to bring your pencil sharpener, this mechanical pencil distributes the perfect amount of product on the brow to create and define natural brows. This 2-in-1 pencil also comes with a spooley brush on the opposite end.

TIP 3- Get The Glow From Nars Powder Products By Building Your Own Palette.

From the sun-kissed bronzers to the cult-favorite blushes, customizing your own Nars palette allows for you to take just the essentials. Start off building your palette with a bronzer to define the face, then add in a highlighting powder to accentuate and add radiance. Finish off your palette by adding a blush that will give healthy color to your cheeks.

Want to pump it for a night? Add in a duo eyeshadow and brush on sheer wash of shadow by mixing the colors together.

TIP 4- Get A Bright Eyed Look With Sugar Lash Mink Extensions

This beauty service is something that you can get done before your wedding day and will last you throughout your honeymoon. Leave your mascara at home because these extensions provide a natural full lash look. they are also double heated for amazing curl retention. Don't have time to visit your eyelash extensionist? Urban Decay Cannonball Waterproof Mascara will do the trick. This mascara gives you a full, soft lash from its gel formula and won't budge even in sweat-drenched conditions.

TIP 5- Get Soft & Smooth Tinted Lips With Clinique's Chubby Stick

Whether you want full color, sheer or somewhere in the middle, there is a gloss stick for you. No need to carry lipstick, lipgloss and chapstick. This product gives you all 3 benefits in a lip product.

TIP 6 - Sleeping In Makeup Is A Big No-No

At the end of the day you want to make sure you remove all impurities to keep skin radiant. Use
Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover; it cleanses the skin without striping oils away and removes makeup all in one step.

Finally, don't forget to hydrate your skin by drinking water. If you're too busy celebrating and drinking champagne, use Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer; this oil-free moisturizer is a water gel formula that instantly gives your skin a boost of hydration helping your skin and complexion look supple and smooth.
