Keeping your hair and makeup looking fresh during and after a long trip isn’t an easy task. No one wants to finally arrive at their destination feeling like they need to make a stop at a hairstylist or beauty shop. On top of all your other travel accessories, you may not have enough room in your carry on for a bunch of tools and a whole spread of makeup.
So, we’ve rounded up a few tips that’ll change your next vacation!
How to Do Your Hair and Makeup for International Travel
When you’re traveling, you want to be able to hop off the plane and start exploring with vacay selfie approved hair and makeup.
How to Do Your Makeup
Let’s face it — makeup doesn’t last all day. At some point, you have to take it off or reapply anyway. So, you’ll have to fill your carry on with makeup to apply or freshen up about 30-45 minutes before landing.
As for the type of makeup, less is more and you can get creative with a few staple makeup pieces. For a base, bring a sheer base like BB or CC cream, cream eyeshadow, cream blush, cream bronzer, and lip gloss. You may have noticed a cream theme. While you don’t have to bring cream-based makeup products, using these over powder means you don’t have to pack tools and you can just use your fingertips. We also suggest stashing a mirror, light moisturizer, and some tissues for convenience.
