Airport Makeup: The Bare Essentials

As I write this I am on the bus to Milwaukee to fly back to Washington, DC for school (a week early I might add). We all know that airlines are insanely picky about their "under 3 oz." rule so I put together what I consider the essentials when flying. It is very natural and clean and uses minimal products that covers pimples and redness, provides a natural soft contour, and a glowing highlight.

  1. Step 1: apply REVLON ColorStay Mineral Mousse foundation in Light Medium/Medium with fingers. This product covers nicely and has 20 SPF giving it a natural soft powder-esk finish. To conceal darkness or redness dab a second layer on problem area. This way you do not have to bring a concealer. 
  2. Step 2: contour with MAC Beauty Powder in Her Own Devices. Using a Sigma F84 Angled Top Kabuki apply to the hollows of the cheeks and around the hairline. I like this product because it is light and with build-able color. Unlike using a contour color such as Blunt by MAC, the Beauty Powder can double as a blush.
  3. Step 3: highlight with with MAC Special Reserve Highlight Powder  in Chez Chez Lame to the apples of the cheeks and under the eyebrow. 
  4. Finish with your favorite gloss and mascara and your done!
