Nykaa x Le Mill: Holiday guide to Capri

When island hopping is on the cards, your packing list must include a golden tan, azure eyes and breezy separates - By Parizaad Khan Sethi

We’re joining forces with the stylish folks at Le Mill to bring you a series of blogs, where beauty and fashion come together to offer plenty of summer inspiration!

You’ve only spent an hour every day at your desk thinking of sunny skies and azure seas. Before you give in and head off for your annual escape, here’s all the ammo you’ll need to inspire Instagram envy with your holiday ’grams.

Capri has seen sartorial hits from Jackie O, so you’re in good company. Plan to saunter through the ancient Roman villas built by Tiberius with appropriately bronzed skin and in breezy separates from Peter Pilotto.

We’re speed queens when it comes to our holiday beauty routine—less time in the hotel room = more time outdoors. But vacation beauty does need to pack a punch (that Instagram doesn’t maintain itself, folks).

For Capri, we’re gilt-tripping all the way. Smooth some Ciaté London Bikini Body Balm on the tops of shoulder blades, on shoulders, down the arms and legs for faux glowing skin. The face gets a dusting of Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder, and we’re mirroring that azure sea view with eyes lined in M.A.C Modern Twist Kajal Liner - New Marine or Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Eye Pencil - Electric Cobalt. Lips are best left nude and effortless: try Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Curviest Caramel.

Take your bronze glow to La Savardina for an alfresco lunch, and wholesome home-style meals.

But wait! Don’t leave without a signature scent. Choose a holiday perfume with care, one where the notes are a tribute to your destination. An added bonus: every time you wear the fragrance post-holiday, it will be an instant #tb to vacay days and nights. For our island adventure, we picked Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Azzurro Eau De Parfum, a juice that mimics the heady sensory pleasures of the Mediterranean, with notes of citrus, bergamot and Cyprus.

At gin o’clock, touch up your lips and perfume before you head over to La Capannina and thumb through their exhaustive wine list. Pilotto’s shimmery metallic chiffon dress will only add to the sense of occasion.
