Glam Girl Travel Makeup

As a glam girl, you always want to look together even when you travel.  You don’t need to have a full face on, but you want a pleasant appearance.

I always make certain to wear a good moisturizer and a medium coverage foundation. Moisturizer helps keep your face hydrated as the air on planes is extremely dry. Foundation helps protect your skin from dirt, germs, and pollution. Lastly, I set the foundation with a translucent powder.

Eyebrows are a must. If you have naturally full eyebrows that are nicely shaped, you don’t have to fill them in. If you are like me with thinner and light-colored brows, I suggest drawing them out to a nice shape. I like to do the majority with powder and use a pencil for the finishing touches.

Since I like to be comfortable while traveling, I avoid using false eyelashes. Instead, I use matte taupe and brown eye shadows to shape my eyes which opens them up. This will enhance my features. Then, I apply two coats of mascara to make my eyes pop. The beauty of this technique is that even if your eye makeup gets slightly messy while you doze on the plane, it won’t ruin the look as it is a “smudgy” technique from the start.

If you don’t have many eyelashes, you can always use a powder eyeliner along the rim of your upper lid. I like to skip blush and just use a subtle highlighter. On my lips, I wear lip balm to keep my lips moisturized.

If your natural look is too different from your state ID or passport, putting your face on might be a good idea in order to avoid those pesky questions such as “Is this really you?!” Take 15 minutes for yourself and remember, makeup is not only cosmetic; it also protects your skin from the elements.


Stay Beautiful!

I've always had a huge passion for fashion and glamour, but sometimes felt both could cross an invisible line and become too "cheesy". I wanted to combine the two and create a GUIDE for women who want to become glamourous, smart and classy with a very feminine style. Working in Hollywood for a decade helped me understand what women,and men, find beautiful and attractive. More importantly it helped me gain perspective that everyone can be beautiful and attractive, regardless of what you look like. Ah the magic of Hollywood! Yet, being a model and a beauty specialist were only two avenues of my expertise. With an exceptionally well developed three dimensional vision and a degree in Business, Marketing and Graphic Design, I was on my way to create the world I wanted to live in. Viva Glam Magazine is on a rise to become the one and only guide every woman will ever need. "Stay Beautiful!"
