What To Pack For A Flight


Flight. Once again I am getting on a plane and crossing the ocean. I am heading to Canada from Europe and not really looking forward to an 8 and a half hour flight.  Traveling, however, is always fun and I’m most definitely looking forward to this trip.

I have to admit that part of the fun for me is figuring out what to bring on the flight. I don’t want to carry too much, but at the same time traveling in style is a must. I am absolutely determined to never be one of those people who gets off a flight looking like she’s been through a horrendous wind storm. Let’s put this into perspective, the flight I am taking is a whopping 8 or 9 hours. Realistically, this equates to a work day for most people. The main difference is that a long flight usually involves a lot of sleep deprivation due to stress and time changes. Also, the recycled air is super drying on my skin.


There are, however, ways to combat all of the outside forces that are working against me. One of my staples is very simple: eye drops. Whenever I’m traveling they help to keep my eyes moisturized, thus keeping them clear and never red and exhausted looking. Of course, the delicate skin next to my eyes needs to be addressed as well, as that’s the first part of my face that starts looking tired.  For this my Chanel Hydramax + Active Serum, is indispensable. I just dab a few dots around my eyes and they are instantly hydrated. This product is a miracle for even the longest flight.


Powder and blush are on the list as well. Following many long hours in the plane, I tend to look pale and my skin gets a little oily. Gently dabbing some  blush on my cheeks gives me the required colour to present myself to the world after a long haul flight. Of course lipstick is also a must, my current favourite being Chanel’s Boy. A little bit of  pink adds a natural glow to my skin tone.  As I leave the airport, the requisite sunnies are pulled out, not because I need them but because they add that extra bit of style.  Once at my destination, I apply my beauty staple, a hydrating face mask from Amore Pacific. I simply apply it the night after a flight and the next morning my skin looks refreshed and rested.


What do you bring on a flight?

  1. Glad to hear you are coming back for a visit! Whenever I travel, I always bring hand sanitizer with me. Actually, I almost always have some in my purse, even here. I’m not a germaphobe or anything, I just can’t stand how insanely filthy some things are. Also, I usually have a hand cream because I cannot stand the feeling of having dry hands.
    Safe travels!

    1. Thanks!! Yeah, I didn’t include that but hand sanitizer is a much as well as hand cream….

  2. I bring a charcoal mask to rid impurities and a face hydrating mist in travel size, so I can use on the plane. Also, making sure to drink lots of water. Safe travels!

    1. Thanks! Water is probably the biggest beauty must!

  3. I don´t know how celebs manage to look so fresh from a flight, I feel like I wanna skip the baggage claim area and go straight to the powder room. Travel light, the less I carry the quicker it is to go through security. Being prepared is key.

    1. Yeah… I’m betting they all travel in first class so they lie down and sleep their way through the flight… I don’t pretend to look half that refreshed!

  4. Super post! These are all so essential while flying!

    1. Thanks!

  5. I always need to bring some moisturizer. And dry shampoo to get my oily hair under control!

    1. Moisturizer definitely. I just bring along a great hat (usually a beret) and if my hair looks greasy then it’s the perfect cover up!

      1. So true! So true!

  6. Kenya L Fashion Blog

    Great tips Caroline! I am sure you are excited to be headed back to Canada for a bit! Taking a long flight is always tough. I must admit that I am not quite as fashionable after being in the air for a long time as I would like… so stopping by the bathroom immediately after is a must!! Have a great trip!!

    xo, Kenya

    1. Ha! I just make sure to go to the bathroom about 20 minutes before the plane starts to land, I guess that’s my secret.

  7. oh I just love the Marc Jacobs bag!♥ lovely post!:)


    1. Thanks! It’s my favourite bag to fly with. It pretty much fits my entire life!

  8. Love this! I usually like travelling but airplanes are always drying out my skin so much, I stopped loving that a long time ago. I also need something for my eyes and a nail file! For some reason it’s always when I travel that my nails start to break…


    1. So funny that you mention the nail file because I always file mine very short just before a flight. I hate my my finger nails look dirty.

  9. Great tips and good products!!!!!!!!!
    Kisses from Italy!!!!

    1. Thanks so much!

  10. Love all the ideas you offered! Wish I saw them before my vacation 🙂
    I usually just bring a book and chopstick 🙂
    Check out my latest travel post if you get a chance:

    1. Yes, a book….that should have been on my list as well!

  11. great tips !!!

    1. Thanks!

  12. Yes girl, always bring your eye drops & moiturizing cream for your face. I even take a small bottle of thermal water with me. It makes such a big difference on long flights. 🙂

    1. What a great idea. I’ll have to do that when I’m flying home in a week and half!

  13. Great post!


    1. Thanks!

  14. Amazing! I adore the fight tips… tnx 4 sharing doll!
    kisses from Miami,

    1. Thank-you!
