Looking good has never been simpler

Driving out of town? Taking a train for a weekend getaway?Jetting halfway around the world?
No matter what, travelling is fun albeit a little stressful. On top of that, it can get a little tricky since you cannot take every single beauty product perfectly placed in your dressing table.
Following are some of the key tips to remember while you jet set away!

Moisturise to the max
Make sure to moisturise the night before flying out as airplanes can make your skin feel very dry.

Keep your skin hydrated
Travelling is fun, but it can take a toll on your skin. Remember, H2O is your best friend!
This includes face mists, splashing water on your face and of course hydrating masks. This’ll keep your skin fresh and dewy throughout your trip.

Forego the foundation
Foundation? Na-ah, too dry. Use tinted moisturiser. It prevents your skin from getting drab. Use a blush stick to even out skin tone. After that, apply a little bit of powder to set the tinted moisturiser.

Brighten up your eyes
Do remember to grab your favourite white eyeliner pencil in order to highlight the inner corner of your eyes. Also, line your lower lash line to make your eyes look less tired.

Lift up your lashes
You can use a mascara to lift up your lashes and make them look longer and fuller; however, it’d be best if you steer clear from wearing mascara during your travels. The last thing you’d want to find is a dry trail of mascara down your cheeks. Try an eye-lash curler instead to help you get fluttery eyelashes.

A touch of lipstick
Lipsticks can serve as an all-purpose product if you don’t want to carry your make-up kit. Use a rosy coloured lipstick as a blusher too. Apply the lipstick on a brush, smile and apply on your cheeks. After you’re done with that, finish it off on your lips. If you want a darker shade, use a thin brush or the lipstick itself to apply another coat.

Say NO to bright nailpolish
Avoid putting on brightly coloured nailpolish when travelling. It chips too easily and leaves an unfinished look. It is better to apply a neutral, sheer colour that won’t call for attention even if it does chip out.

Beauty sleep
If you’re going to take a nap, make sure to dab some night cream around your eyes and wear a sleep mask. Both will help you look fresher and more relaxed after you wake up from your beauty sleep.

Chill out puffy eyes
Travelled a lot already? Guess what, here’s a trick to reduce under-eye puffiness after a long trip. Put some crushed ice in a washcloth and apply it under the eyes. It’s an automatic wake-up call that makes you look as well as feel fresher immediately.
