I want to be looking Parisian Chic when I step off the plane in Paris, so I have been reading up on how to keep looking fresh and fabulous while on an extremely long-haul flight.
For a starters, I leave New Zealand on a 6:30am flight to Sydney (a 3 1/2 hour flight), I then have a 1 hour layover, before getting onto my first long-haul flight to Seoul (10 1/2 hours). I have an 18 hour layover in Seoul where I am put up in a Hotel room (shower! bed! YAY!) before hopping on the last leg of my journey, a 12 hour flight to Paris. After 26 hours of flying, I'm fairly sure I will be in need of some beauty and fashion TLC.
I'm going to stay up as late as possible the night I leave so that I am on Parisian time (12 hours behind NZ!) and take NO Jet lag pills as prescribed to help with my circadian rhythm. I will not be wearing any makeup on my flights, bar some mascara, a little lip tint and concealer. On the plane I will be wearing some comfy leggings, loose t-shirt and an over-sized cardigan to keep warm along with some comfy shoes such as Toms.
In my carry-on luggage I will have a pair of comfortable blue jeans, an extra tank top, an extra couple of pairs of underwear (you never know if your luggage is going to be lost, heaven forbid!), a pair of stylish sunglasses, and a scarf. I will also be carrying a tube of BB Cream to look fresh on arrival into Paris, coconut oil as a moisturizer throughout the flight (the air conditioning on airplanes tend to dry your skin out) and my handy Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream.
