If you’re jetting off somewhere exotic on vacation, these top tips from beauty gurus including Lisa Eldridge will ensure you disembark the airplane looking like an A-lister.
While we all know it’s best to wear minimal cosmetics and drink plenty of water on a long haul flight to avoid dehydrated skin, renowned make-up artist Lisa Eldridge argues ladies should be going a great deal further when it comes to long haul flying.
According to the makeup expert, whose clients include Elle Macpherson, Heidi Klum and Keira Knightley, “any flight is a spa opportunity” — so both hair and face masks are an essential element of any long journey.
In this video, the artist reveals her in-flight must-haves, which includes Dermalogica skin hydrating masque and Phyto 7 hydrating cream for hair.
Beauty on board
YouTube beauty guru Michelle Phan, also a video makeup artist at French beauty giant Lancôme, was one of the first beauty vloggers to offer her in-flight beauty tips back in 2010, and her tips are just as useful today, especially for ladies who want to land looking fresh-faced but are too afraid to go completely make-up free.
Among her tips are using white eyeliner pencil to contour tired eyes and brows to achieve a wide-awake look and opting for tinted moisturizer over foundation to allow the skin to breathe.
Jetting between the world’s fashion capitals can take its toll on even the most clear-skinned supermodel, so international model and blogger Ruth Crilly, who has appeared in campaigns for beauty brands including Olay and Sunsilk, decided to share her beauty regimen during a recent night flight.
Although Crilly concedes there is enough time to complete an entire facial on the average flight, here she gives a sped-up version of her routine, which includes facial mist, serum, eye cream and night cream.
