You know I know the value of seizing a few just-sitting-sans-WiFi travel moments as a skincare or quick-makeup opportunity. On a long flight, I like to do a quick skin-refresh before we land -- cleanse, tone, moisturize, swipe lips with balm. So my TSA plastic baggie contains cotton pads, micellar cleanser, toner or face mist, serums, moisturizer, eye cream, lip balm, hand cream, toothpaste and toothbrush. "I have never seen one of these bags packed so full," said a customs officer to me once (I accepted that as a compliment).
But I'm an in-transit amateur next to makeup pro Lisa Eldridge, who goes through her intense in-flight beauty routine in this video. Eldridge, who pops up regularly on British television style shows as well as on her successful YouTube channel, has unbelieveable skin. Makes me want to give myself a facial right now, en route someplace or not.
I had a grade 6 teacher who was known for regular intonations of "use your time wisely." Hey friends, who wants to have in-flight facial-time with me the next time we're on a long trip together?
