8 Genius Beauty Tips That We’re Borrowing From Flight Attendants
Many people, including myself, have wondered how flight attendants look glamorous around the clock and even in turbulent situations. The cabin itself is temperature-controlled which can be very harsh on the skin making it dry and problem-prone. So, we compiled some essential tips and hacks from flight attendants that will make your skin look and feel glamorous, no matter what.
1. Bright red lipsticks are instant glam

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of flight attendants is their bright lipsticks in shades of red. Wearing red lipstick can easily make you look glamorous without putting in a lot of effort. Look at the leading aviation companies of the world like Emirates, Qatar and Singapore Airlines, and you will immediately recognise their bright lip colours.
If you’re looking for something long lasting, then look into liquid matte lipsticks that won’t budge even below a mask. Flight attendants have grooming experts that advise them on which shades they should use and reds are definitely a part of that.
2. Apply hydrating serums
After washing the face and before applying a moisturizer or SPF, it’s important to add an extra layer of a hydrating serum. This will help you to lock in all the moisturiser and refine the pores of your skin.
3. Use quality primers for a long-lasting finish
The whole reason primers have become so popular is because they help in maintaining the makeup for longer. This makeup product is quite underrated and is one you should definitely buy if you haven’t already. A primer creates an extra layer between the skin and makeup that both helps with the application and makes it last longer.
4. Spray on a face mist for instant freshness
This hack is great if you want to instantly freshen up your face. A single spray sometimes can make the skin look hydrated and change your whole look. This is great for people who live in areas that are dry and humid.
5. Apply concealer to cover up dull under eye area
If you have dark under eyes and want to cover them then a concealer is your best friend. It will instantly make you look awake and refresh even the most tired-looking of faces. Dab a few spots of your favourite concealer and blend it into the skin for best results. You can build this up but be careful so that it doesn’t look cakey.
6. Drink lots of water
This seems like a no-brainer but is key for keeping the skin looking hydrated and glowing. This simple trick can make all the difference by flushing out toxins, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and improving the elasticity of your skin.
7. Hand creams are very effective
The best way to look after your hands is by applying generous amounts of a hydrating hand moisturiser throughout the day. This will help especially in the pandemic era when washing hands is at an all time high.
8. Wearing a sunscreen is a must
Even though we all have been told this time and again, we still forget to apply sunscreen. For those that think it’s not needed let us remind them that the benefits totally outweigh us being lazy about not applying sunscreen. It helps by reducing the risk of skin cancers, hyperpigmentation and sun damage to name just a few.
