in-flight beauty essentials

Don't let the in-fight environment wreak havoc on what's to be included in your glamorous beauty montage of a first class jet-setter. My top essentials to keep fresh looking skin and makeup:

1. Rosebud Salve: perfect for lips, nails, and dry noses.
2. Nivea Creme Tin: tiny, portable, and dutiful. Pleasantly fragrant cream great for hands and dry spots.
3. Boscia Blotting Linens: recycled airplane air makes my skin dry and oily, so I always blot before I land.
4. Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray: to hydrate skin while freshening makeup.
5. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge: simple multi-tasking complexion enhancer. Dab Powder Pink on cheeks and lips.
6. Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick [natural]: for quick under-eye and spot touch ups
7. Bobbi Brown Mirror (similar here): a trusty mirror that is the backbone of the routine. This one has been with me 9 years.
8. Dryer sheet: a swipe to your hair to rid flyaways and static. Original tip here.
9. iPhone: for instagramming your fresh off the plane look.
10. Paul Frank for SkullCandy Headphones (c/o): rock to Franz Ferdinand while touching up and block out the crying baby or the unnecessarily drunk, early happy hour coworkers on a business trip.


  1. This is perfect - I'm flying back to LA in a few days so this really helps! I used to own a pair of Paul Frank headphones too :)Thanks for the helpful tips!

  7. Love the case for the phone! Where'd you get that? x

  8. That picture is so cute :D I love beauty product posts. I didn't know the rosebud salve is for dry noses too! And water sprays are so essential.


  9. Great products shown here... i love the Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray :)

  10. I travel a lot and for long distance too (USA to Australia) and couldn't agree with you more! planes really dry out the skin and love how you included the Avenue water spray, I once got laughed at by a guy friend for carrying that on board but I'm glad you understand the importance of evaporated water spray :)

  11. great post! I'm flying to Paris soon and was worried I would be looking quite haggard after that long flight!
