travelwellbeing Compiled and written by KATJA PANTZAR Beauty and the long-haul flight "MOISTURISE, moisturise and moisturise!" That's the most important advice that Lynsey Alexander, 23, a senior artist with MAC cosmetics, offers to all frequent flyers. MAC (Make-up Art Cosmetics), the international brand of unisex cosmetics that became famous through word-of-mouth endorsements is "all ages, all races, and all sexes." Before ethical products and social responsibility became fashionable, MAC was committed to cruelty-free products, universal diversity and fundraising projects such as its Viva Glam lipstick, which has raised more than 60 million euros for AIDS research. Lynsey, a frequent long-haul flyer, suggests removing makeup and applying a moisturiser and MAC lip conditioner (15,50) shortly after boarding. For men, whose skin can get oily, she recommends MAC's Prep + Prime SPF 50 (24). "It has a matte effect, like milk, and provides a good moisture cover." Shortly before the flight lands, Alexander recommends reapplying makeup. For a quick freshen-up, she shares three tricks of the trade. "For women, a little liquid eyeliner drawn up at the ends of the eyes works like an eye lift," she says. "White knocks out tiredness, as does a bit of shimmery eye shadow in the corners of your eyes. It adds pops of light." For both men and women, she says that "a bit of bronzer adds some colour and counteracts tired skin." MAC cosmetics, which were previously unavailable in Finland, are now exclusively sold at Stockmann in Helsinki. www.maccosmetics.com Expert Lynsey Alexander is a pro at staying pretty onboard.
