Yes, long haul flight is tiring, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t still look good after flying for more than 12 hours. Here are some tips and tricks on how to maintain your fresh look, from the moment you enter the departure airport until you reach your destination.

Natural look is key

Wearing full makeup during a long haul flight can lead to disaster; not only it will ruin your look, it can also make you feel uncomfortable during the flight. Our tips? Keep your makeup minimal by only using light foundation, loose powder and mascara. Instead of lipstick, colored lip balm may do the work better to lock moisture and add some freshness. Use finishing makeup spray for final touch up before you leave the house. Try Mist & Fix Spray from Make Up Forever. Don’t forget to add blush-on on your cheek before landing!

Wear clothes with pattern

Choose thicker but comfortable clothes to wear during a flight. For the top, wear clothes with pattern to hide your creased top after sitting for more than 12 hours. Wear your most comfortable clothes that don’t easily get smelly from your body odor.

Bring more layers

The temperature can be unbelievably cold in the cabin, so it’s better to get yourself wrapped up than sorry. Don’t forget to wear comfortable stretch or unfit trousers/long skirt to cover up your legs, and bring thick scarf and cardigan for extra layers of clothes. Scarf is a very helpful tool to make you more comfy yet still look effortlessly fashionably.

Hair up, hair down

Those who have to style their hair everywhere they go might not like long haul flight, as the hair can get easily messy. To keep it stylish, put some gel before you go to the airport, but only on the bottom part of your hair. Gel can volume it up the right way, and keep it bouncy and stylish.

Wear slip-on shoes

There is nothing worse than getting swollen feet, so leave your heels at home and wear comfy flat instead. Those heading to winter destination can slip their flat shoes in the bag to wear during the flight. Sneakers is also one of the best option when it comes to footwear.

Packing your beauty kit

Of course you don’t want to miss your beauty kit, but bring only the essential ones so that you will not have an overweight bag. Bring the refill package of cake powder to minimize the size, eyebrow pencil, nude lipstick to be worn before you land, and, of course, lip balm that you should always have prepared in your pocket. Don’t forget to slip freshener spray in your bag, like Evian Facial Spray, mint candy to freshened up your breath and oil paper to wipe out excessive oil from your face. (kes)
