5 best travel makeup tips from celebrities

you know what they say – celebrities are just like us; they go on vacations, shop at grocery stores (even if it’s the ritzy erewhon), take scenic drives, and deal with mundane travel makeup woes. but because celebs are always hopping from plane to plane, they tend to have the best travel makeup tips. so we’ve compiled a list of the most useful ones from your hollywood faves.

here are the best travel makeup tips from celebs like margot robbie, kate winslet, and more:

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: emilia clarke on bringing your full travel makeup kit; she says, “i always pack my full kit and i can’t do it any other way. i’m pale, so unless i have a tan, i’ll do an english rose look. i go for a sugary pink on my lips – it makes me feel like i’ve been out on a picnic.”

does the mother of dragons need an introduction? probably not, but we’ll give you one, anyway. you may know emilia clarke through her portrayal as daenerys targaryen in the ultra-popular hbo series "game of thrones.” she’s also been involved in philanthropic and advocacy work, particularly in raising awareness about issues like brain injuries.

when it comes to emilia’s thoughts on the best travel makeup tips, she says, “i always pack my full kit and i can’t do it any other way.” emilia’s kit includes travel makeup, along with a cleansermoisturizer, and eye cream. she continues: “i’m pale, so unless I have a tan, i’ll do an english rose look. i go for a sugary pink on my lips – it makes me feel like i’ve been out on a picnic.”

subtl protip: if you’re a jet-setter like emilia and need a go-to travel makeup kit, you’re in the right place. at subtl, we specialize in creating streamlined, multi-use products that come in handy staks to make traveling easier than ever. we offer pre-made and customizable staks.

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: jessica chastain on dry plane cabins

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: jessica chastain on dry plane cabins; she says, “i think it’s important not to wear too much heavy makeup on planes. also, since the air in plane cabins is really dry, i’m someone that spritzes rosewater a lot."

you might recognize jessica chastain from her work in “the help,” “zero dark thirty," and "interstellar." jessica's talent, versatility, and dedication to her craft have earned her tons of recognition and award nominations. not only is she a renowned actress, but she’s done great things through her advocacy work, particularly for gender equality in hollywood and beyond.

when it comes to jessica’s thoughts on the best travel makeup tips, she says, “i think it’s important not to wear too much heavy makeup on planes. also, since the air in plane cabins is really dry, i’m someone that spritzes rosewater a lot.” for those who haven’t tried rosewater, it’s known to hydrate, refresh, balance the ph of your skin, and protect from harmful free radicals.

subtl protip: all subtl formulations are created to be buildable and breathable. this means they aren’t heavy and can be used for a minimalist or full-glam routine depending on how much you apply. not only is it the best makeup for travel, but it’s ultra-convenient and easy to use

@subtlbeauty Traveling with a makeup stack not only saves space in my suitcase but it created such a stress free hotel experience. Theres nothing worse than packing and unpacking all your clothes and products, so having my makeup in a condensed, stackable system means its one less thing i have to worry about #travelmakeup #makeupstack #stackablemakeup #makeupstak #subtl #subtlstak #subtlbeauty ♬ original sound - Subtl Beauty

 

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: margot robbie on removing your makeup in-flight

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: margot robbie on removing your makeup in-flight; she says, “you have to wear makeup when you’re going through the airport, but then when i’m on the plane i take my makeup off using wipes. i have a beauty bag for the plane packed all the time, so i can just grab it. the products are all the right size so they can’t take them off me. i have that system down.”

everyone and their mom knows who margot robbie is, especially after the barbenheimer box office smash in 2023. other than “barbie,” you may know margot from "the wolf of wall street," "suicide squad,” and "i, tonya". she’s also super into film production, which is where she works diligently to support diverse storytelling and amplify underrepresented creators.

when it comes to margot’s thoughts on the best travel makeup tips, she says, “you have to wear makeup when you’re going through the airport, but then when i’m on the plane, i take my makeup off using wipes. i have a beauty bag for the plane packed all the time, so i can just grab it. the products are all the right size so they can’t take them off me; i have that system down.”

subtl protip: all subtl products are the perfect weight to take on planes, meaning tsa will easily send you through. plus, with every subtl beauty stak, you won’t need a cluttered makeup bag as each one fits in the palm of your hand, includes everything you need, and can be refilled.

Watch how I get airport-ready before we touch down, with my subtl starter stak. #makeupstack #stackablemakeup #subtlbeauty #travelmakeup #airplanegrwm #airplaneroutine ♬ Head in the Clouds - Carly Pearl

 

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: kate winslet on makeup and moisturizer

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: kate winslet on makeup and moisturizer; she says, "when i travel on long flights, i take off my makeup and throw on moisturiser. if i know that i have to look decent as i step off the plane, i go for a sheet mask. i always feel a bit daft looking like hannibal lecter with the cut-out eye slits, but i have to do something to help out the face whilst i'm in the air!”

kate winslet is most known for her role as rose dewitt bukater in james cameron's epic romance "titanic,” which became one of the highest-grossing films of all time. and yes, we do agree that there was plenty of room for jack on the door (iykyk). some of her other notable films include "eternal sunshine of the spotless mind,” "the reader," and "revolutionary road.”

when it comes to kate’s thoughts on the best travel makeup tips, she says, “when i travel on long flights, i take off my makeup and throw on moisturizer. if i know that i have to look decent as i step off the plane, i go for a sheet mask. i always feel a bit daft looking like hannibal lecter with the cut-out eye slits, but i have to do something to help out the face whilst i'm in the air!”

subtl protip: airplane cabins can be a pain, especially if you’re wearing makeup; they may cause puffiness and dry out your skin, resulting in it overcompensating by making oil. with subtl’s concealer being formulated with coffee seed oil to awaken the undereye and our shine control pressed powder having the ultra-hydrating ingredient squalane, you’ll be covered 24/7.

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: karen elson on travel size makeup

best travel makeup tips from celebrities: karen elson on travel size makeup; she says, "i’m all about travel-sized everything. if i can get it in a travel size, i’ll get it in a travel size. i have way too many things when i pack my bag. i bring everything but the kitchen sink. i’ve got into so many arguments about the little clear carry-on bags, especially at heathrow airport.”

people know karen elson primarily as a british model and musician. she rose to fame in the fashion industry during the late 1990s and early 2000s, becoming known for her striking red hair, ethereal beauty, and unique look. karen has graced the covers of numerous fashion magazines and walked the runways for some of the world’s top designers and brands.

subtl protip: karen’s travel makeup concerns are valid. thankfully, we created the best travel makeup bag and made all our products perfectly weighted for easy tsa pass-throughs. subtl staks also make packing your makeup a thing of the past – just grab your stak and go.
