8 Beauty Hacks to Help You Look Flawless During Your Long Holiday Trip

Vacay season is here, which means (for most of us), endless hours of travel and having to awkwardly pull off an entire beauty routine on the road or mid-flight. And even though we’d like to carry our makeup bag or kit with us, no-one really wants extra luggage to drag around. The eight products below will have you touched up and looking flawless in two minutes flat.

1 Hand sanitiser

Before you apply any beauty products to your face, make sure your hands are clean first. Keep this hand sanitiser in your handbag or jacket pocket so it’s on you at all times.
