I'd love to be one of those well traveled women who have a lotion and potion for everything and an array of quick beauty fixes so they look nothing short of perfect when they step off a long haul.
I'm more at home chuckling through the in-flight movies and more likely to be brushing off crumbs from my travel clothes (Disney Dumbo tracksuit for the win) than applying a coat of lip gloss.
What can I say I'm just a classy broad and with that in mind i'm sure you'd love nothing more than a nosy within my travel make-up bag ha!
I board with every intention of slapping on a face mask and turning my flip down table into a travel spa but life is short and I do love a good game or two of travel connect four! Anyway should I decide to wear any make-up on Sunday morning I will be quickly wiping it off with my mini Bioderma Sensibo H20 and swiping off my eye make-up with Lancome Bi-Facial. I never quite know how my skin is going to behave so I have packed a few intensive moisturising products from a travel mini of Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair, Clinique's Moisture Surge Overnight Mask and Astalift Jelly. I'm thinking that I will layer on all three to prevent my skin from dehydrating and then calling it quits at that stage because a girl needs her on flight nap!
I wasn't all that sure what eye cream to take and in the end convenience won when I found a mini tube of Origins Ginzing Eye Cream this helps to brighten and hydrate the skin which is all I really need at this stage. I've also packed a tube of Selixir Balm which is a remedy for really dry skin and great for eczema, this is more for the flight home when I've seen a little too much sun and need a deeply hydrating mask that doubles up as a great hand cream...I told you I was lazy!
One thing I always remember to pack is wet wipes to freshen up my hands etc and they also come in rather handy should you spill a drink. My only necessity is a facial mist of some sort as I do get quite hot and sometimes sickly when I travel and nothing can cool and soothe quite like a quick cooling burst of water. I'm not overly fussy when it comes to facial mists and the La Roche Posay Thermal Water makes the cut purely because it is in a plastic bottle and the perfect travel size. While we are on the topic of freshening up this year I have chucked in a Le Soft solid perfume to quickly rub over my pulse points to give the impression of slight grooming.
For embarking the flight I have packed the Wild About Beauty Safari Nights Palette which is a great neutral palette with several cream products that means I can leave my brushes safely nestled within my suitcase. I will most likely pop on slick of cream blush, lipgloss and call it a day, I mean that is what sunglasses are for aren't they? I do have a mini YSL mascara rolling around in my make-up bag but we both know I'm only kidding myself there.
A classy lady I am not but I do have a ball, nana napping like a pro, gambling and watching trashy in flight TV and that's all that really matters haha!
