8 Makeup Tips to Look Flawless while Travelling
They say it’s all about the journey, not the destination. But did they tell you that the journey can wreak havoc on your hair and skin? Well, that’s why we’ve come up with these makeup tips to keep you looking great, whether you’re travelling by land, air or even sea.
Moisture and Hydration
The night before and on the day of your travel, make sure to use an intense moisturizer. In addition to this. Drink plenty of water and carry a rose water toner spray. You can just spray this during or after your journey to feel refreshed and get your skin immediately moisturized.
Pack a mini beauty kit with your essentials. Keep a facial mist (if you have dry skin) or blotting paper (if you have oily skin). Pack an eye liner, mascara, moisturizer, concealer and tinted lip balm. Keep the kit handy so you can brush up or fix mishaps.
If the journey has left your hair frizzy, you can just touch your hair with the moisturizer that’s left behind after applying on your face. To avoid a flat spot, tie your hair in a loose topknot for some volume when you land.
Skip the Foundation
Use a tinted moisturizer and skip the foundation on the day you travel. If you must wear foundation, wear primer first to keep your skin hydrated and make the foundation last longer.
Lips for the Trip
Instead of using long-lasting lipsticks that will dehydrate your lips and crack them up, use layers of balm and tinted lip stain. Finish with a coat of gloss and keep applying the gloss throughout the journey.
Avoid heavy eye makeup and mascara before your journey as you might find it smudged or messy if you take a little nap along the way.
If you must paint your nails, opt for clear or neutral shades. This way even if the nail paint chips with all the moving around and baggage handling, it won’t be easily noticeable, unlike bright red nails.
Apply hand cream liberally and carry it with you in your purse. Keep reapplying to prevent your hands from drying out.
Now that you know how to look fresh before, during and after your journey; you can take that mandatory selfie when you arrive at your destination. Have some travel beauty tips of your own? Share them with us by leaving a comment below.
