So since I’m flying to London today I thought, hey, why not share with you guys how I do my make up when I travel. By the time you’re reading this I should’ve already landed in England. I actually have to get up at 4am because our flight leaves at like 7am. Yeah, that’s going to be tough! I am so not a morning person at all. I usually don’t ever really sleep before 2am and now I have to get up at 4. I really hope I can fall asleep early today because I know once we’re in London I won’t get a chance to sleep all day and I don’t want to be up for 24 hours. Anyway… let’s get to the actually point of this post. How I do my make up when I travel.
What’s most important for me is a flawless fresh looking skin. Normally when I go on really long flights, or car, train or bus rides I either use no make up at all or BB cream because it’s lighter on my skin. Since the flight to London isn’t that long but I won’t be able to really do my make up once we’ve landed I’m using my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation because it literally lasts all day and makes my skin look good. Of course, you have to use concealer. Traveling can be exhausting and make you look tired so we need some concealer to hide those tired eyes. To set everything I just use some translucent powder.
Next up are my eyebrows. I don’t know why but I always need to do my eyebrows. I feel like doing your eyebrows really shapes your face and makes you look a lot more pulled together. You know what I mean? So first I fill in my brows with a brow pencil. I’m currently trying out different ones. It’s really hard for me to find a color because most brands separate their eyebrow colors into colors for blonde, brown and black hair but even though I’m naturally blonde I have pretty dark eyebrows. I think I’m somewhere in between blonde and brown, which is why it’s hard to find a good color. If you have any recommendations please let me know!! After filling in and shaping my eyebrows I use eyebrow gel to keep everything in place.
When I’m traveling I usually skip eyeshadow and eyeliner and just apply a bit of mascara just to give my eyes some definition. Plus I like my eyelashes to be really dark. Because I’m really pale I apply a bit of blush. One of my oldest and most loved blushes is my Mac blush Well Dressed. It is such a subtle pink it’s perfect for every day. Instead of lipstick I’m just applying some lip balm.
That’s it already! This is how I do my travel face. When I travel I don’t feel like I need a bright lipstick color or fancy eyeliner. I prefer to keep it natural and causal. What does your travel face look like?
Have a wonderful day!
