How to travel and look fabulous at the same time!
Whether you are travelling for business or fun, you certainly don’t want to compromise your beauty. You want to look your best at all times. So, here are some survival tips that will help you look and feel awesome, even if you are planning to travel by plane, which is extremely harsh for your beauty.
Use a deep moisturizer the night before your trip, so that your skin gets enough hydration, in order to endure the travelling conditions. You can even apply a moisturizing beauty mask.

Avoid applying a foundation on your face. It’s better to use a tinted moisturizer. It will keep your skin fresher. If you feel the need to wear a foundation, make sure you use a primer first, it will protect your skin and it will make your foundation more stable.
3. Avoid mascara
Smudged eyes are definitely unattractive, so it’s better to avoid mascara. If you take a nap on the way, you may wake up looking like a… zombie. You should also be very careful with your eyeshadows. Use a primer, it will help them stay in place. You should also go for a natural look, choosing soft colors.
4. Avoid long-lasting lipsticks

Your hand cream is also something you should carry in your bag. Apply it often during your trip to keep your hands well moisturized.
7. Avoid bright colored nail polish
Choose a natural look for your nails and avoid bright colors, that chip easily and make you look like you are neglecting your nails.

If your trip is long and especially if you are travelling by plane, your pupils may dry out or get irritated, leaving you with red eyes. So, always carry eye drops that soothe your eyes, so that you can look your best.
10. Bad hair solutions
Keep a brush in your bag, so that you can brush your hair and tame your tresses. After a long trip, any kind of hat – depending on the weather conditions – may save you from a bad hair occasion. It will also make you look more chic and elegant.

A long trip may leave you looking tired and pale. So, you can use a little shimmer to instantly freshen your look. Apply it lightly on the top of your cheeks and on the bridge of your nose.
