5 in-flight makeup essentials

by Martha Adams

When you’re up in the air, we all know that it’s best to give your skin a break and go bare-faced . But if you want to look fabulous when you land, you may have wondered whether you should wear makeup on the plane? From personal experience, wearing makeup on a flight is never a good idea. However, it is a good idea to bring a small compact mirror and do a quick in-flight makeup routine just before you land.

Here are five of the best airplane makeup tips, so that you can look fresh and glowy by the time you land.

BB Cream

A long-haul flight can severely dehydrate your skin. It’s tempting to reach for a foundation, but most formulas will cling to dry areas and bring out flakiness. Skip your base and go straight for a hydrating BB Cream to even out your skin tone.

Cream Blush

Dehydrated skin and powders do not mix. A cream blush will give your skin a fresh, dewy appearance and a hint of colour that will wake up your complexion.

Eyebrow Pencil

Full, fluffy brows will instantly wake up your complexion and give you a more youthful appearance. Look for an eyebrow pencil with a sharp tip to create precise lines that will softly shape and fill in your brows.

Nourishing Lip Balm

Dry, flaky lips are one of the more annoying side effects of a long haul flight. Keep a deeply nourishing lip balm with you and continue to touch up your lips regularly throughout the flight so that the dryness doesn’t last for your entire holiday.

Hydrating Facial Spray

It might annoy the person in the seat next to you, but your skin will thank you for using a hydrating facial spray throughout the flight. This is great to use before and after you’ve applied your makeup.
