Touchdown and you have arrived at your holiday destination. Millions of things are running in your mind; the places you want to visit, your outfits for every day, your make-up and hair for each of these outfits and shopping!
In the midst of all this frenzy happening in our mind, we sometimes forget to refresh our skin from the long-haul flight. By now, you should have already prepped your skin with the in-flight essentials. These essentials would have left your skin clean and moisturized from the packed atmosphere of the plane. All you need to do now is refresh your skin after your plane ride and let your skin, body and soul all enjoy the holidays.
I don’t know about you, but I always like to stay camera-ready from the moment I enter my holiday destination’s airport. You never know who you might meet, or you miss a perfect photo spot just because you weren’t camera ready. This is why Smashbox’s Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light has always been my travel buddy and it has proven to have many benefits; number one being its sleek tube for perfect dispensing which is travel safe and friendly.
It is formulated with vitamins and antioxidants and can be worn alone or with a foundation. Since you will be applying it after your flight, we recommend that you apply it alone and let it give you a natural and glowing look.
The primer has oil absorbers which gives a renewed look by minimizing the appearance of imperfections. It gives a smooth matte finish for the entire day, so even if you just apply only this primer for your entire trip, you will be forever photo ready and will see a flawless result.
You must have noticed, most of the time after a flight, your complexion turns two tones darker and appears to be so dull that it looks like you haven’t washed your face in days. If you know what I am talking about, then you definitely need this rescue gel from bareMinerals which gives on-the-go coverage anywhere and anytime.
This gel is a multi-tasker solution; BB formula, CC formula and tinted moisturizer are all blended in this one tube, which also saves you from the hassle of carrying three different creams separately.
Why is it ideal after a flight, you wonder? Because it has marine botanicals that boost hydration in your skin which was deprived of basic nutrients because of in-flight atmosphere.
It comes in 10 shades which gives a wide spectrum to match it with your skin. The mineral-based gel gives a smooth and soft finish with a radiant glow and leaves your skin with a dewy sheer to medium coverage. Its mineralized ingredients make it perfect for the skin as it is healthy, non-comedogenic and silicone, oil and parabens free. Not only do you get all day long natural and light coverage but also nutrients for your skin.
A package of pure versatility and goodness, this trio by Jane Iredale is going to be your new best friend. The travel-anywhere highly pigmented hues in compacts have everything you need to look like a model from the pages of Vogue.
It includes a translucent PureMatte Finish Powder, a shimmery peachy pink whisper purePressed blush, a brown sugar purePressed eyeshadow tripe with warm brown, shimmery peach, and shimmery copper eggplant shades that come in different compacts and a mirror that can be snapped apart for easy travelling.
Ideal for quick touch-ups and perfect selfies, this kit works flawlessly on every skin tone and you can play around with the eye shadows to give you different looks every day; one day can be a no-makeup look while the next can be a bold smoky look using the copper eggplant shades.
By the time, you have prepped your skin with all the above mentioned products, you will need a pop of color on your lips and this can only be done with a matte lipstick that is long-lasting and has a non-dry texture.
With its high quality packaging, this Mellow Cosmetics lipstick is very creamy and comfortable to wear. It lasts for up to 4-5 hours and has great pigmentation that allows for the color to stay the way it is for a long time.
The vibrant shade Passion is all the rage because of its velvety-smooth and moisturizing texture and because it goes perfectly with all skin tones and looks natural and subtle. It is ideal for after a plane ride look as it does not look too bold nor too plain; just the right amount to look fresh and glowing.
Did you think we were going to let you step out of the plane without putting on mascara? You have such little faith in us!
