I love Ruby Woo. She's my number one girl. And she can easily, and still be prettily, applied straight from the tube using a phone as a mirror. Red lips look good with anything, as well as they are truly defining. This cool toned, blue based red looks wonderful on any skin tone, and it needs few reapplications. It also, bonus, makes teeth look nice and white.
I NEED THIS IN CANADA LIKE THE AMERICANS NEED A DECENT PRESIDENT! Wow, i went a little nuclear there...no pun intended. But really, these star in my dreams almost as often as Chris Evans. These are great, energy giving, sugary and salty, plane/anytime snacks.
I am one of those poor people who has HELLA sensitive armpits. I can't use antiperspirants, and even the most organic, unscented deodorant wreck my armpits up. But when traveling, I suck it up and use some extra strong smelling deodorant. Turns out, men understand not everyone wants a antiperspirant. Women clearly don't. (I have emailed Dove about a women's deodorant and they said that it has come up before and is on the table- I have been fighting the good fight for you, world.)
Planes give me gross face. Dry, gross, oily face. It's really sexy. I'd love to wash my face, but their is no room and no desire in me to go into that bathroom unless i have to. This little love can prevent that. Pour some on a cotton pad and wipe away the grime, mess and water free! And no, your skin doesn't still feel gross after- meaning you can put your toner and moisturizer right on! This is amazing for avid travelers- and it's anti-pollution!
*So, i have the sample size of this, but if you have the big one, just put it in a baby bottle.
I don't care if I'm 5 or 50. These are just damn good. I bring a small bag of them with me, like, everywhere. They are not going to be taken by customs (most likely- just don't put any raw chicken in there,) as they're dry goods. You'll need a good cup of water after to help deal with the salt, but hey, that's a small price to pay for a cheesy, salty, snack.
My skin gets so dehydrated on flights, and you just feel so gross and grimy that you need a pocket pick me up. For some of you, that's a mini of vodka, and for me, it's a few spritzs of this fresh, semi-pungent scent. Beware, it's not for everyone! If you can't handle a questionable smell, don't buy this. Also, don't get on a plane. That's a scentsphere of horrors, right there.
I have some of these in my purse right now, no shame. These are great on a plane, as they don't smell, aren't messy and can silence little children, as they take awhile to chew! Also, they are great for fun loving adults who want more candy and less fat in their lives!
This mask is like a softening cocoon for your face. It's uber gentle, odourless enough and easy to apply. After I cleanse my grime with my other Clarins One Step, I apply this for ten minutes onto my cleansed skin. Then I removed with a cotton pad soaked in toner (again, Clarins/or maybe Biotherm). Soft, gentle cleansed skin. Again, sample size is the way to go here. I love those little sizes for so many reasons- I must tell you though, if it works amazing on a plane, way up there with recycled air and dehydration literally thwacking you in the face, then you know it must be killer back down on Earth!
Okay, I do like things that are small and easy to transport, but I also really LOVE Harper's! It's full of interesting articles, excellent beauty tips and fashion that will make even Wintour drool. It's a less politically/celebrity driven Vogue, and I really enjoy that. So, grab yourself this $7 magazine and read it in coach and pretend your a glamazon gracing the masses with your presence. Go on, you deserve it!
These are cheap, comfortable and won't fill you with wracking guilt if you break/lose/utterly destroy them on a plane. I don't take my Beats anywhere I might destroy them (which is most places tbh). These will deliver decent audio straight from your armrest plugin to your ears. Enjoy your trashy films and bad elevator music people!
These are some nice cotton pads that are DEFINITELY worth it if you've got an extra tenner to spend. I pack my suitcase and carry on with these babies for on the go skincare. They don't fall apart, absorb and distribute product well and have extra (gentle!) nutrients in them. Happy travels!
I love this cream. It smells so comforting...it's like having your mum and a bar of dove in your purse at all times! It's also hella effective. Chapped palms and elbows can suck it! Get yourself the small tube and use it SPARINGLY. You don't need a lot of this stuff!
I love a good book at anytime, in any location. But when I'm traveling, I like something slim and easy to transport. So I take Gatsby with me. It's a wonderful, dark, slightly sad and pathetic story with great sets and messy characters. Think of it as the OG Real Housewives, if you like. (I do not condone).
JUST BRING SOME MINT GUM WITH YOU. Nobody wants to smell your breath. Nobody- not even you. Also, if you're like me and eat random food at random times when your schedule is changed even the slightest, then you don't know when your next snack will be, and you don't want to brush your teeth just yet. Gum understands this, and gum is here for you.
I have the mini of this, and it's so nice for travel! I put mine on my high points- cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, centre below my bottom lip, under my eyebrows and in the middle of my lid. It's super quick and can be blended in seconds with your fingers. Also, it makes you look kinda awake!
Well, it says vinyl, but don't bring your vinyl with you people! Download this INCREDIBLE album on Spotify or Apple Music or whatever and you WILL NEVER REGRET IT. I love all the songs on the deluxe, but I highly recommend you check out The Chain (both versions,) Planets of the Universe, SILVER SPRINGS (underline, bold, highlight), Dreams, Go Your Own Way and Gold Dust Woman. Each song tells a story of love and loss...It's like hearing the pages of an old Welsh witches' diary. (That means really good and super cool, btw.)
I don't care who you are, but if you don't carry a pen in your purse, we can't be friends. I always have a pen, and usually a sharpie too. Carrying office supplies will definitely make you friends, ease your life and make you look HELLA sophisticated. Especially if it's a nice, metal tubed pen. If you still use cheap ball pens and you're a grown up professional, you gotta check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Planes are gross. People are gross. Both of these things correlate at the same time on planes, and thus germs are plentiful. Protect yourself with small sanitizers that smell like Island Margaritas and French Lavender. Also, bring wet wipes. And tissues. And band-aids.
I love lotion Kleenex. They are so luxurious when you feel craptastic. Or just, like, in general. Get a pocket size of these and go to town watching Beaches with these babies!
This mascara doesn't budge, flake or clump. It gives you movie star lashes with ease. Get yourself a mini tube, and bring your eyelash curler, and apply it with ease on an airplane. You will look awake, gorgeous, and put together. I know my clothes look crappy post plane, but at least my face doesn't!
I am a chocoholic. If they have chocolate rehab, I should be in it. I also am a chocolate snob/expensive chocolate supremacist. I love dark chocolate- it's rich, slightly bitter and deliciously satisfying. Chocolate, dark chocolate, covered almonds are like crack to me. This comes as a close, slim, second. Easy to put in your purse and easy to eat on the plane.
Okay, so the picture is misleading, but I recommend getting yourself Lush's Dirty or my personal fave, Breath of God, in solid form. They're hella cheap, androgynous and smell super fresh and clean. They're also small and will earn you many compliments from literally everyone you meet. They also work as smelling salts when the plane smell becomes unbearable.
These are totally worth the investment. Truly. Pop your shoes off on the plane and put these babies on, and you'll feel soft and cuddly. I also recommend bringing an eye mask, a blanket (or pashmina- the stylish persons' blanket,) and maybe a neck pillow, for the ride.
These are plane essentials. I hate having morning breath all the time- imagine it 50,000 feet in the air! No water, no problem. Though I do recommend moistening your mouth first, you don't even really need to spit after! Get yourself a pack of these before you leave- trust me, you will not regret. ESPECIALLY IF YOUR LUGGAGE GETS LOST.
This is classic for a reason, people! It smells lovely and can be used on anything! Think of it as a natural-ish Polysporin. It works on sore spots, diaper rash, dry cuticles, lips, minor scrapes and burns and more. It's also perfectly pocket sized.
I did my makeup in semi darkness on a plane, using my phone screen as a mirror. I used Brow Wiz to sculpt, and the clear gel to hold them in place. I could've just used a tinted brow gel and done everything in one step too, but, hey, I was very sleep deprived at the time.
I love this little miracle. It comes with me on all expeditions. It's my concealer and foundation in one. I applied it straight from the stick and used a knock off B.B dampened with my baby rose water spritzer to blend. I ended up looking surprisingly radiant. FYI- I had a tiny Smashbox primer sample, and I used that underneath to blue the he** out of my skin post moisturizer.
