Burbank, CA (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
In light of the recent security scare we must change the way we think about make-up while traveling. Airlines and government security agencies will now not allow you to take with you or on your person any liquids or gels. This essentially means that women will no longer be allowed to carry make-up on board a flight and consequently make no touch-ups to your make-up while flying.
So what’s a glam girl to do? You certainly want to be safe traveling, yet still look good doing so.
According to the experts at the nation’s leading make-up school, Make-Up Designory (MUD), the best way to work around this situation is to consider the products you are using. “You should consider using longer-lasting cosmetics,” suggests Tate Holland, CEO and President of MUD. “Pigment-based or pigment-rich products will simply last longer. Look for strong color in your pressed powder products including eye-shadows and blushes. If your pressed product easily delivers strong amounts of color, they are more likely to last.”
MUD also offers the following tips for women travelers:
- Buy lipsticks that advertise longer wear or consider a product that delivers a light stain to the lips;
- For your mascara, look for a waterproof product - these tend to last longer;
- If foundation is important, use a richly pigmented cream foundation. Cream foundations do not break down like liquid or powder-based products. If cream foundations are new to you, you will want to experiment. A little product will go a long way.
- In addition, look for products that have a professional tradition. Products that have been developed by professional make-up artists for the entertainment and fashion industries are designed to last longer.
In terms of packing your make-up, make it easier for yourself and security officials by properly packing all of your cosmetics and other personal liquid care products in clear plastic bags. “The first bag should contain the same products that you originally used to apply your make-up including any applicators such as sponges and brushes,” continues Mr. Holland. “Place this bag in a pocket on the exterior of your luggage so that upon arrival you can easily access the cosmetics for a touch-up. The rest of your cosmetics should be placed together in a second bag.”
Next, place shampoos and lotions in a third bag. These last two bags should be placed in your checked luggage at the top of your clothes so that security officials can easily inspect these items without having to dig though your suitcase.
