Ten travel beauty tips to ensure you look and smell good on the go.

10 easy ways to ensure you look and smell good on the go…

  • Wet wipes are a great way to freshen up ahead of landing in the airplane restroom (they’re great for removing makeup on the go too).
  • All the eyeliner in the world won’t disguise blood-shot eyes. Eye-drops are great for lubricating and soothing in-flight red eye.
  • Consider leaving lashes naked…shut-eye on the go can often see mascara migrate down cheeks.
  • Slather on the hand cream. The industrial soaps found in public washrooms are notoriously harsh on skin.
  • Consider forgoing the bright nail polish – it chips too easily. Buff and polish for a natural sheen or use a sheer color that won’t draw attention if it chips.
  • The air-conditioning on planes, train and automobiles can really dry out lips. Keep your kisser kissable by applying medicated lip balm liberally and frequently.
  • There are few occasions when your skin needs to breath more than when you’re traveling from A to B. If possible forgo the foundation for a tinted moisturizer.
  • Nab tester/sample pots/bottles for your favorite makeup and fragrance. Not only are they small and relatively lightweight, but they also comply with restrictive flight safety regulations.
  • Zip-lock bags are your friend. They hardly weigh anything (unlike those hefty train cases), and they adhere to security screening requirements. Use a few to compartmentalize your different types of makeup
  • Drink lots of water – keeping hydrated is the simplest, easiest and most crucial travel beauty tip anyone will ever share with you.

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
