Discover Orpheus Island with Eleanor Pendleton
We’ve teamed up with beauty guru and founder of Gritty Pretty, Eleanor Pendleton to show you how it’s done.
Located on the sparkling turquoise coastline, in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll find the stunning sanctuary of Orpheus Island. Adored for its harmonious relationship with the reef and commitment to conservation, this is modern, island luxury at its best. Tranquil and secluded, one of their luxe North Beachfront Rooms could be yours for 5 blissful nights.
Resort wear comes alive this season in well-wearing, natural fibres. Hues inspired by our great Australian landscape are at home on Orpheus Island, with tiered and voluminous favourites turning it on in the breeze. When travelling with a carry on it’s wise to spend more time thinking about accessories that transform your look. Less is still more on island time so think pared-back gold and barely-there sandals when dressing for dinner and drinks at Orpheus Island’s ‘chef’s-hatted’ restaurant and bar.
Eleanor Pendleton’s Island Essentials
When it comes to getaway beauty, playing to your climate is essential. Get the holiday glow before you go with SK-II’s Facial Treatment Sheet Mask and don’t forget to give the rest of your body a luxurious kiss of hydration with La Mer’s Renewal Body Balm. While away, start your beauty routine for the day with a hard-working SPF. In the spirit of your natural surrounds, opt for a lightweight, vegan and reef safe formulation by Grown Alchemist; the perfect summer staple for long days at the beach.
For cocktail hour, let your makeup look be an exercise in enhancing your natural beauty. Adding a light dusting of Tom Ford’s Soleil Glow Bronzer and a spray of Oribe’s Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray are the easiest ways to getaway glam. For the finishing touch, and a look you won’t forget, add a spritz of ‘Her’ by Who Is Elijah. Inspired by scents of an Italian seaside village, it’s the ultimate holiday fragrance and a transportation to a sunnier time.
