From waterproof mascara to sunscreen, don't leave home without first reading our guide to what every new bride needs to pack for her once in a lifetime trip.

Honeymoon beauty checklist:


Maybe you booked a relaxing Maldives beach break, or perhaps you're off to Africa on safari - either way, a waterproof mascara is a girl's best friend when it comes to her honeymoon


Ever since Cara Delevingne showed us why a good eyebrow is everything, we've been on a quest for the perfect eyebrow product. Step forward Eylure Brow Designer, an instant tint for brows, which darkens and defines the hair of the brow whilst leaving the skin untouched, making it perfect for adventurers in a rush to get up and out each day.


Want fuller lips but don't want to inject anything into your pout? Get kissable lips, perfect for your honeymoon, with Fillerina. The Swiss brand fills the gap between injectable and topical Hyaluronic Acid creams thanks to the six molecules it uses. The Lip Volume Gel promotes the increase of lip volume thanks to its filling and plumping properties and should be applied once a day. Results can be seen after a few days, though with some people it takes up to two weeks.


This one is a no-brainer, sunscreen keeps skin protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays while also giving your body a quick cool down on those long hours spent laying around a pool. Pure bliss!


No new bride wants fuzzy legs, so make sure you pack a razor for your travels. Gillette's luggage-friendly Venus Snap is a handy portable version that can literally fit into any bag, big or small, for instant smoothness on the go.


The new Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum Foundation from No7 is a great multi-tasker, and instead of leaving skin looking flaky, or worse, melting off, the serum in it makes your face look smoother and firmer. Perfect for both hot weather and cold terrains!
