Less is More
Packing ‘light’ may seem like a daunting task for a make-up junkie! In our travel special issue, ISHA GAKHAR brings to you an impeccable guide on nailing your make-up manual while on the go.
THE SPF STAPLE
On the off chance that you are a sun-kissed lover, invest in a sunblock! Whether you are heading to a beach or to the mountains, make sure to slather on a sunscreen. Make-up pro Kajee Rai counts a sunblock and a moisturiser among his holiday vanity essentials. In fact, he encourages us to carry a travel-friendly beauty kit. “Carry products that are in sync with the outfit you’ll be wearing while travelling. Try not to carry glass bottle cases, as these could make the kit heavier. Finally, don’t get carried away while packing makeup, “he shares.
SLAY YOUR VACAY
Primers are a huge humidity shield. Celebrity make-up artist Pallavi Symons suggests using a clear primer on the face and the eyes before putting on make-up. This ensures that the make-up last for hours and also makes sure you wear less product more effectively! Always use products with SPF and find ones that are clear gel formulas as these don’t alter the colour of your makeup, especially on a trip as your skin colour is likely to deepen or lighten depending on where you are holidaying. Blotting films are great make-up buddies for humid climates. To stay matte and fresh without caking on more powder, blot films are fabulous and fussfree options!
