What happens when you’ve got to doll yourself up but also have just a few minutes to do so? You rely on applying makeup on the go, of course! But there’s a way to wearing makeup while travelling without ending up with raccoon eyes or smudged lipstick. You have to make sure you leave your home with all the necessary items that make application easier. No liquid foundation or runny mascaras. What are these vanity tips then, you wonder? Here’s a low-down...
 

Go for a stick concealer

Stick-form products are the new cool in the makeup world. To get that extra coverage your skin needs, dab a stick concealer on your imperfections (blemishes and dark circles.) A stick-form concealer allows for easy application without any spillage. Your best bet? The Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick that has SPF20 as well as Vitamin B3.

 

Rely on a high coverage compact

Rely on a high coverage compact

When you’re in a rush and have to apply makeup while travelling, ditch liquid foundation. Instead, invest in the Lakmé 9 to 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact that can give you good coverage. It also absorbs excess oil from your skin and reveals a smooth finish.

 

Always carry a pocket mirror

Always carry a pocket mirror

If you’re travelling by cab, remember that a pocket mirror will allow you to see if your application is perfect and if there are any harsh lines on your skin. Make sure you carry a few Q-tips and wet tissues that will allow you to remove any excessive makeup or uneven strokes.

 

Make way for a lip and cheek tint

Lip and cheek tints are great when you’re on the go because they’re dual purpose products. You want to travel as light as possible and a lip and cheek tint will make application easier. We suggest you go with the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour as it has a creamy mousse-like formula that lends you a soft matte finish. For the cheeks, a few dabs are all you need to get that rosy glow.

 

Trade your liquid liner with kajal

Trade your liquid liner with kajal

A kajal is a multipurpose product that allows you to line your upper and lower lash line. We suggest you trade your liquid liner with an intense black kajal because a liquid liner has chances of smudging and spilling easily. A kajal stick like the Lakme Eyeconic in Black or any other colour of your choice is waterproof as well as smudge-proof—just what you need while travelling.
