Makeup Tips for Looking Fabulous Straight off a Plane

Over the next few weeks it seems like everyone in the Birchbox office is jetting off somewhere fun. Ally is in Equador right now (lucky!), editor Candice has been working from San Francisco this weekend, and even I’m heading off to Denver in a few days for a friend’s wedding. Summer really is our favorite time to get out of the office and enjoy some sun.

Unfortunately I usually step off the plane looking like death warmed over (especially if it’s more than a few hours long flight) and I know I’m not alone. The last thing I want to do while traveling is worry about a full makeup routine, so this month we asked makeup artist Nam Vo to share a few really easy tricks for looking downright amazing when you step off the plane. Throw these products (all under TSA’s 3.4 FL OZ limit) in your carry-on and you’ll be fresher and more polished when you step off the plan than when you stepped on. Happy traveling!

That potential for beauty disaster is enough to keep even the most adventurous of makeup lovers (myself included) away from bold lips.

Somehow Laqa & Co. must have heard our lipstick woes when they partnered with us to develop this duo of easy-to-use Lil’ Lip fat lip pencils. These twist-up, mini pencils glide on effortlessly and provide a bright punch of color that amazingly looks great on everyone. And soon you’ll be able to try them for yourselves because some of you will be receiving one of these pencils in your June Birchbox!
