Sky High Beauty

When you’re soaring 30,000 feet in the air, don’t forget about the beauty essentials you’ll need for touch-ups the minute you touch back down to earth. With all the new airline safety regulations it may seem easier to ditch the beauty items you usually bring aboard rather than hunt for mini versions of your favorite must-haves. But now you don’t have to. We’ve gone ahead and compiled our favorite plane-friendly travel tools that every woman should have on hand when they arrive at their final destination—sized perfectly for pulling out at security.

Toning Mist One of the best ways to wake up after a long flight is to hydrate skin with a refreshing toning mist. These pocket-sized pumps instantly bring skin back to life with one spray of replenishing botanicals. Try a dual spray like Redo Freshen-Up Mist for Hair & Skin To Go that will liven up your locks and skin!

Gloss When we think moisture we often forget to include our mouth. Because lips tend to get cracked and dry on airplanes, keep them smooth and hydrated with a moisturizing gloss. We love Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss by Clinique because it’s a stylish hybrid of pretty gloss and protective lip balm.

Hand Sanitizer Planes, bathrooms and airports all have one thing in common—germs. Because so many people are confined to a small space for so many hours, it’s easy to share just about everything. Stay smart and germ-free by having some hand sanitizer on hand.

Blotting Tissues and Moisturizer Since the temperature on an airplane can be so wildly unpredictable, be prepared for dry or shine! If you find your skin is getting greasy, gently blot with facial tissues (see our favorites at left) that are designed to absorb excess oil. Or, if your skin gets drastically dried out during the duration of your flight, moisturize with a lightweight formula that will quench your skins thirst for moisture.

Foundation After treating your face to some much needed toning and attention, it doesn’t hurt to re-apply (or apply!) a layer of lightweight coverage before saying farewell to your flight. We suggest carrying a cream-to-powder compact like Ultimate Finish Liquid Powder Makeup by CoverGirl because it slides on easy and leaves you looking fresh-faced.
