When you think of going to the airport, the first thing that crosses your mind is that you need to be as comfortable as you can be. You put on a comfy pair of pants, throw on a hat, and just conform to the inevitable reality that the airplane’s cold air will wreck havoc skin. Meanwhile, for celebrities, traveling is just another chance to show off their impeccable sense of style.
But unless they’re flying private, they still have to do like the rest of us and abide by carry-on liquid and weight restrictions; they can’t pack their entire makeup line. So, how do they manage to look like they jump out off the pages of Harper’s Bazaar rather than a cockpit? Here are supermodel Gigi Hadid‘s beauty hacks to travel in style.
A Clean Face
The first recommendation is to remove your makeup prior to or during a flight if possible. Flying will clog your skin, even moreso if you have heavy makeup on. Even if you can’t wash your face completely, use a wipe to let your pores breathe. Hadid’s ally is La Mer Micellar Water, the best option for eliminating any traces of foundation or mascara. This leaves your face feeling brand new.
Use a setting spray
If you have to wear makeup on your flight, then make sure you use a setting spray. You can also use it during and after your trip to refresh your look.
Don’t forget about Hydration
Traveling can be brutal for dry skin and can make you look tired. Use a hydrating cream the night before and the morning of your trip. Also, drink plenty of water during the flight so you don’t have a puffy face as you depart the plane.
The Essential Makeup Kit
Whether you’re traveling by train, car, or plane, follow Hadid’s recommendations to carry these three products:
Deep Red Lipstick: It’s a classic look that works wonders with almost every skin tone. Look for a type that will last you all night, while still keeping your lips hydrated.
Eyebrow Pencil: Remember that your eyebrows frame your face, so it is vital that they are always looking defined and neat. Choose a defining pencil with a comb on the end to shape and blend your brows to perfection.
Mascara: Want to look awake even though you aren’t? Apply a few coats of mascara and you’ll look awake as ever!
