Some people might be irked by the idea of putting makeup on in public, but most reasonable people don’t care. The important thing is that you feel comfortable. If you’re not happy putting your makeup on in front of other people then use the bathroom, where you can usually access a larger mirror. Should you decide to do your makeup in your seat in front of other people, make sure you have a mirror to hand and keep your makeup items contained so that they don’t drop onto anyone else and disturb them.
Some beauty products will work for more than one application, such as lipsticks that can also be used as cheek stains or foundation that can also act as a concealer. Try to incorporate these products into your travelling beauty kit so that you’ve always got a way to save yourself time when you’re on the move.
It might be tempting to just shove your makeup into the bottom of your handbag and hope for the best, but rummaging around takes time and can disturb other passengers. To avoid this, find a pretty and practical makeup case so that you can keep all your products together where you can easily reach them to touch up your look as you go.
Before you leave home, or while you’re on your travels, make sure you put your hair into a style that keeps it away from your face. This will make it easier for you to apply your makeup without your hair getting in the way, and will also make you look sleek and stylish for when you arrive at your destination.
When you’re cleaning the brushes you use at home, it’s important that you also remember to wash the ones you use when you’re on the go. This will save you from getting potentially ugly or even dangerous skin conditions. You should really be washing your makeup brushes at least once a week so that they’re clean and safe to use. Remember to take them out of their case at the end of each week, clean them with safe soap and then dry them thoroughly before you put them back in ready for your next adventure.
Spilling makeup on your clothes can be disastrous if you’re on your way to something important, as the stain is often both noticeable and difficult to get rid of. As such, it’s important that you try to avoid dripping makeup products onto your clothes. The best way to do this is to angle your face away from your clothes as you apply your makeup on public transport. Hold your mirror slightly higher than usual and lean yourself forward so that you don’t cover your clothes in products that will stain.
When it comes to applying makeup, the golden rule is that you need to feel comfortable, so only wear what you want to. By following these tips, you can make yourself look lovely even when you’re on the move.
