4 Ways To Pack Perfumes When You Travel | Clozette

Whether it be domestic or international flights, there are restrictions when it comes to carrying liquids. That's why travelling with your favourite fragrance can be an inconvenience in a lot of ways; from not meeting the allowable amount on board to worrying about the fact that the bottle might break or leak inside your luggage. 

Still, that doesn't mean you should forget about smelling fresh and fab as you head out exploring new sights. Get those packing bags ready with our travel tips on how to pack your favourite scents!

--------------------------

Sock it up



If you absolutely have to pack a whole bottle of perfume in your check-in luggage, make sure it's secure and does not break during the flight. So stuff it inside a stretchy pair of thick socks; and make sure it stays in place by sandwich-ing it between your clothes. That way, your perfume will be well cushioned to withstand travel.
Go for a stylish, yet compact and functional container



The scent is just one of the things we love about our perfume. The other thing we love? The packaging. We have to admit that one of the things we also consider when purchasing most of our beauty products is its aesthetic. But if the bottle is too big for travel and you don't want to risk breaking it during transit, then the Travalo Classic is the way to go!

Slim and sleek, this new atomizer might just be the secret must-have item that perfume lovers should get their hands on. Each comes with a patented Genie-S system that allows users to easily “pump to refill” their favourite scents. This unique system refills the atomizer in seconds without any spills or exposure to air, making it the perfect travel companion.


Feel free to be 'clingy'



Worried about your perfume bottles leaking during the flight? Uncap the bottle and wrap a thick layer of saran wrap over the opening. Make sure that the saran wrap is flat and perfectly sealed on all sides before replacing the cap on the bottle. That will ensure that your perfume bottles remain leak-free throughout the flight!


Maximise the mist your perfume spray produces



Sometimes, it's so easy to go overboard and spray way too much perfume all over ourselves. The result: running out of perfume before the end of the trip. To prevent this, we turn to Perfume Pod!

This minimalistic perfume container may seem tiny, but the 5mL it carries goes a long way. With its controlled nozzle, it can deliver up to 60 to 85 sprays. That's more than enough to keep you smelling great throughout your trip!

Who knew that we could have two or three skin types? We've been so wrapped up figuring out our [singular] skin type that we overlooked the possibility we could have more than one -- such as combination-sensitive or oily-acne prone with dry patches. Which is why multi-masking is the perfect way to de-stress, purify, and address our complexion's varied skin concerns! 


But since we’re all newbies to the whole world of multi-masking, we thought, why not let our Community learn from the best? So we partnered with Origins Philippines for “Clozette x Origins PH Mix & Mask Workshop” – a skincare workshop held last Saturday (28th May) at SM Makati where selected Clozette Ambassadors and members of the Community were treated to an afternoon of healthy snacks and juices courtesy of The Wholesome Table, skincare lessons, and multi-masking demonstrations from Origins Philippines’ “Resident Product Expert” Samantha Lim!

Mask combinations such as the Insta-Glow, Blemish Buster, and the Green Detox were applied on 3 volunteers from the audience; and these 3 are perfect for all skin types and for anyone who wants to give their skincare regimen a boost!

So, want to mask your way to glowing and clear skin? Then read on to learn more about these 3 multi-masking combinations which will definitely amp up your beauty and pamper routines! 


Insta-Glow

The multi-masking must-have for anyone who wants to give their skin a glowy boost or a quick pick-me-up! Apply the Original Skin™ Retexturising Mask with Rose Clay on your T-zone and chin, and the GinZing™ Refreshing Face Mask on your cheeks to energise and purify your complexion in 10 minutes! 


Samantha sprayed the Maskimizer™ Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer on Clozetter Jeanne's complexion before applying the masks

Why do these two masks work so well together? Because the Original Skin’s fine Jojoba beads gently but effectively remove dead skin cells and refine your pores; while the GinZing mask’s coffee and cucumber ingredients wake up a dull and tired complexion — giving your skin a cooling and hydrating boost!



Blemish Buster

Want to give your skin a deep detoxification? Then the combination of the Clear Improvement™ Active Charcoal Mask and the Out Of Trouble™ 10 Minute Mask is the perfect one for you — it will banish all your blemishes and your skin’s impurities in a short amount of time! 


Samantha applied the two masks on Clozetter Fatima's T-zone to focus on her more clogged areas

How? The Clear Improvement’s Bamboo Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, while the Out Of Trouble’s ingredients work to slough off dead skin cells and refine rough texture to steer your complexion away from possible breakouts!




Green Detox



Don’t let its packaging fool you, but the By All Greens™ Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask is a powerful product because it's actually 2 different masks in one bottle! This creamy clay mask, which is packed with nutrient-rich Spirulina, Green Tea, and Spinach, transforms into a foaming cleanser the minute it touches your skin to detoxify clogged pores while gently-yet-deeply cleansing your skin. So if you want to give your skin a nice detox without stripping it of its moisture, this is the perfect multi-mask for you!

Just in time for summer, Clozette has partnered with Matrix Philippines to give selected Clozette Ambassadors an ultimate hair makeover featuring Matrix's latest hair trend: Rock 'N' Strobe. From edgy cuts to soft highlights, our Clozette Ambassadors were treated to a hair revamp rooted in the art of strobing.

Strobing is a technique which originated in makeup as the placement of highlights in key areas of the face to draw attention to your favourite features. Now this trend has expanded beyond makeup in the form of Matrix's Rock 'N' Strobe hair colouring technique.



Rock 'N' Strobe is all about injecting your look with youthful energy and a pop of rebellion. It's a style perfect for those who loves to jam out, ham out, and break the rules -- those who aren't afraid to stand out from the crowd.

Intrigued by this new hair trend? Read on to learn more about this hair-evolutionary technique and see our Clozette Ambassadors' transformed looks.
Personality and hair styles

Our hairstyle, much like our wardrobe and makeup choices, says a lot about our personalities. However, experimenting with our look can be a bit tricky as it's so easy to get something wrong and end up with a hair colour and cut that doesn't suit your face shape or skin tone.

So if you don't want to end up with an unflattering cut and colour, then it's best to get guidance from the experts to ensure that changing your look will be a definite success. 



"My hairstyle shows how bold and fearless I am. I am always ready to explore and experiment just like [what I did] with my new hair color. This is actually the first time I had this shade. Thanks to Ate Gerien who suggested [this look]!" - Star Clozetter Justine Galang


Hair strobing versus highlighting with makeup

"I love the idea of highlighting [being] incorporated [to this hair trend]! I love that it's meant to enhance and bring out the best of one's features and hide the 'not-so-favorite' areas just like how makeup works. By trying this new look, it made me feel more confident with my assets and less conscious about my insecurities!" - Clozette Ambassador Aggy Nuguid.






The 3 Strobing Techniques

In makeup, a highlighter is used to give our features that extra glow especially when the light hits our skin. But if you've tried it, then you'll know that getting it right can also be challenging as it can make your skin look shiny and oily when done incorrectly. It can also put the spotlight on skin imperfections that you're trying to cover up instead of making your best features shine.

So if you haven't mastered this makeup technique yet, then fret not! Strobing is all about making the magic of highlighting work for you without the added effort and these three techniques from Matrix's Rock 'N' Strobe technique is all about that!

--------------------------

Cheek Strobe

If you're blessed with amazing cheekbones just like Clozette Ambassador Jean Dalida, this strobing technique is for you! The look is achieved by bleaching the mid-section of the hair that is perfectly aligned with the cheeks and dyeing it with a hair colour that suits the skin tone. 



This is also the go-to look if you're a lover of bold eye and lip makeup just like Clozette Ambassador Maxine Marcelino.




Jaw Strobe

Take your smile to a whole new level. Show off your pearly whites and give your face an extra lift with the jaw strobe! This look is achieved by layering your hair, bleaching the area by the jawline, and letting it stand out in between the darker top and bottom base.




Eye Strobe

For those whose eyes are their strongest feature, this is the strobing technique for you. This look is achieved by framing the face with a textured fringe and bleaching parts of the hair in random patches to focus the light to your eyes.

Plus, if you're a huge fan of bold eye makeup, this will truly make your peepers stand out from the crowd!
 



A total revamp

Just when you think that this hair trend couldn't get any better, it's also effortlessly chic and can definitely help reinvent the way you do your makeup and style your OOTD.


"Since my hair is now reddish, I will opt to wear clothes that will help bring out the colour of hair and avoid colours that will clash with red. For lipstick, mauve and dark red shades will be my go-to colours!" - Clozette Ambassador Camille Pujalte


"It is true that highlighting and contouring has been big in terms of make-up trends. And as for some people like me, I’m not that person who really has the knowledge in terms of contouring and highlighting. Most of the time, I fail whenever I try. However, the new highlighting technique has given me a chance to enhance my facial features, to show them off, to look more distinctive, attractive, fresh, and bold." - Clozette Ambassador Camey Flores
