Welcome to Honeymoon Beauty, my series on what types of beauty essentials you need of three different kinds of vacations. There are definitely a few honeymoon essentials that apply to the princess bride, the natural bride and the daring bride—even if you are taking three very different trips. You must pack something sexy, pack things that don't wrinkle and only bring what is necessary. Most likely night after night it's just going to be you two lovebirds, so trust me when I say there's no reason to overpack!
If you are the type of couple that's dreamed of a long, hot warm tropical getaway, then the theme of your vacation is going to be chic and low-maintenance. Things to remember to pack are sunscreen, sunblock sprays for your hair, lip gloss with SPF and a great bronzer to really enhance your tan. Ideally, your makeup should be fuss-free. Take a look at a few of these tropics-inspired makeup palettes perfect for a honeymoon in paradise!
Lisa Watier Palette Honey Moon is a sunny eye palette created to achieve a glowy, bronzed effect. It includes five powder eye shadows, (one of which can also be used as an all-over face illuminator) that can each be worn alone or blended together. The palette costs £24, which is roughly $50 (and yes, this site ships internationally).

Hourglass Island Palette Color Link ($55) is a makeup palette made from six eye shadows and two cheek blushes. The "passport insert" contains tons of bronze, peachy, gold and warm tones perfect for a tropical island honeymoon.
I already wrote about these island-inspired palettes from Lorac, Cargo and Too Faced, so check out my review. (I really love the kitschy romance-novel look of the Too Faced palette!)
