  6. CeliaV

    .Fairest Neutral Porcelain with Cool Hair/Eyes
    .Clarin’s Chamomile Toner (hydrating, calming, refreshing) or a spritz mixture of my usual EOs (Castor, Tea Tree, Jojoba) for cleansing/makeup removal/healing
    .NARSissist Palette. It seems like an odd choice but it’s super sturdy and very buildable. It’s easy to get a sheer daytime look or an intense smokey eye look. Best to add a couple “wow” shades from Sugarpill or Geek Chic (etc) to add in brights.
    .Smith’s Rosebud Salve for tint and moisture, balm with SPF included, and anything I don’t have to freeze! I like traveling with my Rouge G’s in my purse because the tiny mirror is great for touch-ups without needing to whip out a compact or palette and the heavy metal packaging is very protective of the lipstick.

    sun screen (e.g. Avene).
    For long flights also vitamin C serum (e.g. Body Shop).

    eye palette: I wouldn´t take a palette. But my choice of eyeshadows would include:
    something very pale yellowish (Carefree by MAC or 351 by Inglot)

    + one brighter eyeshadow or pencil

    tinted lip balm – best formula for flights (mineral one by Uni),
    nude lipstick or gloss (e.g. my HG Mineral Lipglaze in Perpetual Plum by Revlon; or Graped-up chubby stick by Clinique, or Nude Rose by Revlon which I use on my cheeks too),
    one bright colour (e.g. Grand Rouge by Yves Rocher).

  44. xamyx

    Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

    Skincare: Whatever I’m currently using, in travel containers. Skincare is too important to me to cut corners, and although my routine is fairly simple, I still need to have all my products.

    Palette: If I had to choose only one, it would be either LORAC Pro or NYX Butt Naked “eyes”. Ideally, it would be all my UD Naked palettes, or Kat von D palettes in Saint, Sinner, Poetica, & Ladybird, which were the 4 I travelled with last.

    Lip product: Lip balm is what I usually end up wearing exclusively, but I do pack a nude, MLBB, & vampy shade, and those change too often to list… This year, I plan to pack L’Oreal Freida’s Nude, which is a combination of nude & MLBB for me.

  47. Jan

    ◾Your skin tone/coloring: MAC NC42
    ◾Must-have skincare for travel? Tough call. Usually a good makeup removal wipes, a hydrating serum and something like oxygen based moisturizer and neck creams.
    ◾Must-have palette for travel? I travel with palettes designed for travel and try to leave may favorites at home. Lately, I’ve been using Tarte’s Amazonian Escape. It will be awhile before I use it all.
    ◾Must-have lip colors for travel? Spring/summer: Something with a sheer pink base. Summer/Fall: Something with an orchid base, Fall/Winter, at least one a deep mahogany or wine shade.

  48. I have very fair neutral skin with freckles
    Don’t wear makeup on the airplane, chances are you’ll fall asleep in it. Also if you’re flying bring a moisturizer for your face and lips so they don’t dry out.
    I’m currently living in France for three months, I didn’t bring much makeup since i don’t really wear a lot everyday. I’m really glad I brought my L’oreal Colour Riche quad in Cupa Joe, its 3 matte and pigmented brown shades and then one cream shade that makes a great brow bone high light.
    Bite Beauty lipstick in Fig, its a rosy natural pink that goes with many eye looks; MAC Angel, its such a classic nude pink with shimmer that I’m just obsessed with. I love bright coloured balm stains so I always bring a Revlon one I have called Sweetheart, its from the old range before the Colourburst balm stains (I think they were called Kissable Balm Stains) and its sooo pretty. I’m not a huge gloss lover, but i really like Nyx lip gloss in Beige (I’ll say it because I feel obligated to: its not beige) it looks great over MAC’s Angel and Bite’s Fig.

  49. Amanda
