With wedding season now in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about how to accessorize your cute cocktail dress. You’ve got the peep-toe pumps, the vintage clasp clutch and the feather clip for your hair, but something’s missing… After a winter spent in hibernation your skin is most likely lacklustre. A couple of years ago I was a bridesmaid for a best friend and I brought along Benefit‘s Hollywood Glo Body Lustre to give my arms, shoulders, back and decollete a slight shimmer. The rest of the bridesmaids liked it so much they all smoothed it on.
Now that Hollywood Glo is no longer, there’s another body balm on the block: Bathina “Take a Picture it Lasts Longer” Body Balm. This new version is much like Hollywood Glo in that it’s a silky and glimmering smooth-on balm in the heavenly Maybe Baby signature scent, but unlike my first favourite, Bathina feels lighter on my skin and provides more of a sheer golden-pink finish, which is perfect for my fair complexion. Now you’ll have everything you need for the wedding, just try not to outshine the bride in the pictures.
