Is it a mystery to you how the celebrities always look so beautiful and well-rested when they get off a plane? Then read this. Here we will give you the recipe for the most effective travel makeup.
Keep your skin moisturized. Makeup works best on moisturized skin. But the air on planes is very dry, and therefore your skin requires a little extra TLC. Drink plenty of water during your flight, and make sure to have travel-sized moisturizing mist with you. Remember that the maximum size of liquid containers that you can bring with you in your hand luggage is 100 ml. Check out the rules and regulations here.
Go for a natural makeup. A heavy makeup will smudge easily. Instead you should go for a natural and discreet look, which is just enough to keep you looking well-rested and fresh when you land. A BB-cream will moisturize your skin, give you a natural glow and provides moderate coverage. Then apply a concealer to cover redness, imperfections and bags under your eyes. Dab a little bit of concealer in the corner of your eye – it will brighten up the final result and give you a fresher look. Give your lashes a stroke of your favorite mascara and dab a little cream blush on your cheeks and lips. Now you are ready to fly!
How to keep your look throughout the journey. If you want really durable makeup, then start with a primer followed by a foundation or BB-cream and at the end lightly brush with transparent powder or makeup setting spray that seals the makeup. You can also put a layer of waterproof mascara on top of the regular one. This makes it super-durable and remains easy to remove.
Freshen up along the way. If you need to freshen up before landing, a few sprays with a facemist can sometimes be enough. You can also use blotting paper, which sucks up any excess oils without ruining your makeup. After this, you can powder your face with loose powder and freshen up your blush before landing.
