Flying with a full makeup on can be terrible for the skin, but to some people leaving the house, standing in line at the airport and sitting long hours in a confined space not wearing makeup is impossible. We completely understand, being in a place full of strangers barefaced can be too much. You can limit the damage by removing your makeup when you finally get to your seat. People will be too preoccupied with themselves to care that you’re not wearing makeup. You can bring a small makeup kit to apply makeup before you leave the plane or apply it in the airport bathroom.
