So many in-flight beauty routines seem super long and, if I’m being honest, completely OTT.
Taking care of your skin in flight is one thing but carrying out a full skin care routine? To me, that seems kind of inconsiderate to whoever gets stuck sitting next to you – for me there’s nothing worse that being sat next to someone who fidgets around for hours on a flight.
Maybe if you’re flying in first and have masses of room or you’re travelling with someone you know won’t mind your endless moving around from one lotion and potion to the next throughout the flight this isn’t a problem but, for most of us in the real world, a cramped airplane seat really isn’t the place for a full on pamper session.
That being said, I do like to take a few steps to try to minimise the damage of long haul flights on my skin. So here’s my realistic in-flight beauty routine. Continue reading “A REALISTIC IN-FLIGHT BEAUTY ROUTINE” →

If I had to pick one item of make up I couldn’t live without it would be mascara. I literally will not leave the house without it – even if it’s just nipping to the shops to grab a pint of milk. Everyone has their weakness, their kryptonite if you will, and a world without mascara would be mine. Even if I’m having a no makeup day at home I’ll often still put on a dash of mascara because I really dislike the way I look without it (I know, I have issues…)
I’m lucky in that I have very, very dark lashes but I’m constantly cursing the fact they are poker straight – naturally sticking straight out – so despite the fact there is actually quite a lot of length to my lashes, without mascara they look sad and stubby.

Anyway, I embraced the power of mascara at a young age and, over the years, I’ve refined and perfected my mascara technique, becoming somewhat of the go-to girl amongst friends and colleagues for mascara advice. If you wear makeup regularly then you’ll probably know these already however, if not, here are four quick mascara tips I swear by.
