December and January is the time of the year when everyone is jetting off to their winter holidays. Since flights are dehydrating for the skin, we’ve prepared a step-by-step in-flight skin care routine just for you!

Step off the plane looking rejuvenated with these 7 easy steps!


1. Remove all makeup

Makeup clogs up your pores and dehydrates your skin even more, so remember to remove your makeup when you get on the plane! Don’t need to worry about packing your makeup cleansers into TSA approved bottles anymore because there are many amazing cleansing cloths that does an equally good job. 
Try the Nivea Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes or the Biore Makeup wipes.

2. Prep your face with a facial mist

Refresh your skin with these handy travel sized facial mists. Try the First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating mist which is injected with Vitamin C & E which are great sources of anti-oxidants. Or you can go for a light floral scented Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Mist, which calms the face for the flight.

3. Mask it

There is a wide range of sleeping masks available in a market. We particularly love Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask that boasts a sleeping technology that hydrates and soothes your skin while you sleep. If you prefer a sheet mask get one which works on your v-line as well, try the Naruko Brightening and Firming Mask EX.

4. Drink loads of water

Do not be afraid to ask the flight attendants for water! Staying hydrated is the most important step in replenishing the water in your body and skin!

5. Sleep

Sleep is essential for your cells to rejuvenate, don’t get absorbed by the movies on your in-flight entertainment and make sure you get some shut-eye!

6. Mist (again)

Mist regularly throughout your flight! It will refresh your skin and add more hydration to your skin in the stale recycled air.

7. Apply a face oil

If you still have a long way to go on your flight, instead of re-masking, you might want to consider a facial oil. Facial oil adds pure moisture back to your face and rebalance the oil production of your skin.

Try Tarte’s Pure Maracaja Oil (it comes in a travel size) or if you’re less tight on budget try the La Mer Renewal Oil.

The cold weather is officially here on our side of the world. How do we know? Well, there’s all that drizzle in the air, accompanied by the dip in temperature. There’s also the unfortunate comeback of dry skin and chapped lips. Yikes!

Of course you don’t have to succumb to a holiday of dull, flaky skin because we’re sharing with you five cold-weather beauty picks to help you get through this season. Consider this our present to you, Clozetters! ☺ Plus, check out more top-to-toe beauty products that will let you look prepped, polished and pretty for the cold holidays in Clozette Shoppe’s Style Report: Winter Beauty Essentials.


Argan Oil

An Argan oil product is a multivitamin for your skin, hair and nails. It provides an extra layer of moisture, protects against cold elements, and improves skin’s overall luster. Our pick: Moroccan Natural Organic Argan Oil for its added anti-aging properties.

Tinted Moisturiser

(Get It Here)

Applying makeup during cold weather can become tedious when you layer product after product in order to hydrate the skin and also achieve a flawless complexion. Consider a product that solves this problem and try a tinted moisturiser. Our pick: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser. It gives just the right amount of coverage in one swoop, and leaves skin feeling soft and silky!


(Get It Here)

Get glowing and brighten dull winter skin with a swipe of a cream highlighter or illuminator. Our pick: Clarins Instant Light Brush-On Perfector that helps hide imperfections and gives a luminous glow no matter what the temperature is.

Creamy Nude Eyeshadow

(Get It Here)

Sheen eyeshadow is practically a requirement for holiday parties, plus nude looks amazing on any skintone. In these chilly days, opt for a creamy formula that feels velvety and offers a nice colour payoff that doesn’t crease. Our pick: bareMinerals Eyecolor in Winter Whiten – it’s free of harsh preservatives and chemical irritants!

Hydrating Lipstick

(Get It Here)

Lips get super-dry on cold months, so make sure to keep them hydrated and pretty, not chapped. Our pick: Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick, a colour and moisturizer hero for parched lips.

We’re all familiar with MAC, Benefit, NARS, and the like. All these are world-famous makeup brands that experts and newbies use — and they’re all Western brands. But what about Asian makeup brands?

With the explosion of Kpop and the Korean beauty industry, it’s only now that Asian beauty brands are gaining popularity from all over the world. So, with that in mind, we have compiled our five favourite Asian beauty brands that we think are just as amazing as their Western counterparts, and give them the recognition and love they more than deserve!


Etude House

Don’t be fooled by this Korean brand’s cute packaging, because their products pack a punch! From their foundations to their moisturisers, there’s something here for every one who loves makeup. All their long-lasting eyeliners and mascaras will give you that gorgeous doll-eyed effect, while their water-based skincare products will hydrate your skin to give it that plump, dewy glow that’s all the rage in Korea.

If you’re someone who loves to play up your eyes every time, then K-Palette is the brand to go to for all your brow, liner, and mascara needs! Their eyebrow pencils, powders, and gels seriously set and don’t budge unless you swipe a high-powered makeup remover over them. And their mascaras and eyeliners beautifully curl and define the eyes for that chic, doe-eyed look!

Shu Uemura

While the Shu Uemura eyelash curler has become a cult classic that numerous beauty lovers and experts swear by, their brow pencils, eyeshadows, and cleansing oils are on their way to 'cult status' as well! With the hard brow pencil's innovative formula and staying power allowing thick, bushy brows to be attained every time, their cleansing oils thoroughly removing makeup while gently cleaning the skin, and their eyeshadow's creaminess and strong pigmentation make this brand a must-have for any makeup kit!

Dolly Wink

Another amazing brand for those who are all about the eyes, Dolly Wink is famous for their volumising and lengthening mascaras as well as their budgeproof, sweatproof, and waterproof liquid and pencil liners! We're suprised that their eyeshadows and false lashes don't get much love — the neutral and smoky shimmery shades will seriously make your eyes pop and shine, while staying on for hours on end; and the falsies' flutteriness will give you lashes that are a mile long without looking too fake!

The Face Shop

Like Etude House, The Face Shop caters to all our makeup and skincare needs too. Their angled eyebrow pencils instantly give Cara Delevingne-esque eyebrows every time, while their famous sheet masks address all of our skincare concerns from dehydation to oil control! And if you ever want to jump on the cushion foundation bandwagon too, they have an excellent oil controlling water-based foundation that will be your new go-to product!
