What are your travel beauty tips for short flights?

I always bring wipes to clean the seat, something to read (since most short flights don’t have a movie) and in my purse I carry my hand cream, contact solution and glasses and a few trèStiQue essentials - our Matte Stick for blotting and Concealer Crayon for touching up pre-landing.


What are your long-haul flight beauty tips?

I always bring my own warm cozy socks and a cashmere travel shawl that can double as a blanket. I also bring some extra skin care products to keep my skin hydrated in the dry air & a toothbrush! For long trips I keep my entire makeup kit Essential 8 Set with me in case my bag is ever lost.


When it comes to makeup in your carry on, what beauty products do you keep with you and why?

I always have my Matte Lip Crayon lipstick - I use the BB Lip Balm for travel since its loaded with moisturizing ingredients such as argan oil, coconut oil and peach seed oil. I also keep my Concealer Crayon for spot touch-ups, my Brow Pencil which makes you look pulled together and awake and the Matte Stick to blot shine.


How does your beauty routine change when you’re traveling with a baby?

I have much less time to touch up in flight or care what I look like. The most important thing is keeping the germs away because he puts everything in his mouth. I keep hand wipes in the diaper clutch and in my purse and wash my hands a ton. I love Elizabeth Arden’s 8 hour hand cream and keep that handy along with my BB Lip Balm.


You’re heading from the airport straight into a meeting. What are the products you turn to and why?

If I have to go to a meeting I always add a touch of Eye Pencil, a swipe of Highlighter and I layer a bit of Matte Lip Crayon in Barcelona Bright Berry on top of my BB balm (which acts as a hydrating primer).


Any on the fly emergency in-flight beauty tips?

The bathrooms are so tiny in the plane so I like to put my makeup bag and skin care in a hand held clutch with a wrist strap. I hang the strap on the door so it says clean and out of the way.
