Question: What are your best travel beauty tips?
Answer: With spring break just around the corner, it’s time to gear up for traveling. After being on an airplane for hours, most of us can hardly wait to freshen up. Here are a few beauty tips that will make you look and feel great:
1. Pack a skin mist to combat all that dryness.
The air while flying can be very dry, which can lead to flakey skin. The solution? A fabulous skin mist. It’ll make you look (even if you’re not feeling) refreshed and radiant as ever. It also gives skin a youthful glow—and who wouldn’t want that?
2. Embrace the BB cream.
BB cream is the perfect solution if you want to moisturize your skin and even out its tone. BB creams usually have a sunscreen built in, which is a major plus. BB cream is very easy to apply; not even a brush is necessary. There are so many great BB creams on the market right now, like M.A.C. Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15.
3. Mascara = awake.
It’s time to make the eyes pop. While flying, many tend to sleep, making eyes appear extra tired. To look wide awake, apply a bit of mascara to instantly open up the eyes. This simple step will make a huge difference after flying all day.
4. It’s all about 2-in-one products.
To tackle two steps using just one product, bring along a cheek and lip tint. It’ll give your cheeks and lips some color and will take your current makeup look from drab to fab. It’s also a space-saver, being two products in one.
5. Deoderant: your best travel friend.
After flying for hours on end, you might want to freshen up your body. I recommend bringing along deodorant in your carry-on bag and applying at the end of your flight. It leaves you smelling nice and feeling much more comfortable after being in the air for hours.
Tip: Don’t be that girl who gets stuck with lotion all over her bag by the end of the flight. Best to play it safe and get a leak-proof travel bag (Inspire Travel Luggage, $38).
With these products on hand, it’s easy to feel refreshed and fabulous—even after hours of flying. Bon voyage!
