TSA travel rules for beauty products

TSA-Friendly Beauty Essentials For Summer Travel

Planning what beauty products to take on a big summer trip can be as much of a nightmare as trying on bathing suits in a florescent-lighted dressing room. TSA’s rules state that you can only bring liquid or gel-like items in your carry on bag if they are 3.4 ounces or less and placed in a quart-sized plastic bag. These rules can be hard to remember and a pain to plan for during the chaos of packing.

Just relax! You’re in luck! We are here to help you pack for your trip with some suggestions on beauty items that are must-haves for your summer getaway.

Traveling on a plane with liquids & gels

Your hairspray, foundation, and shampoos all fall into the ‘liquids and gels’ category. All of these items need to be under 3.4 ounces and placed carefully inside of a quart-size zipped plastic bags, such as Ziploc bags or a clear TSA-approved toiletry bags. For instance, if your spray tan bottle is larger than 3.4 ounces, all you need to do is place that inside of your checked luggage.

If you don’t need your entire bottle of shampoo for a trip, you can purchase travel-sized bottles and pour the liquid into them to carry on the plane or to store in your luggage.

Traveler Tip: I purchased all of my toiletries ahead of time and had them shipped to my hotel. I called to make sure they would secure the items for me, and they did! Each hotel can vary, so always call to make sure they’ll take care of your items.

Can I bring makeup on the plane?

Can I bring makeup on a plane?
I think we’ve all been that girl who does their face on public transportation before they reach their destination. There are a few rules for bringing makeup on a plane. Mascara, foundation, liquid highlighters and lip gloss items will go into that lovely quart-sized plastic bag we talked about earlier. Fortunately, your lipsticks, lip balms, lip liners, eyeliners (think solid and waxy products) and compact powders can be carried on the plane with no issues. Yup, makeup brushes are all fine to bring aboard!

Listen up! There is a little caveat with bringing large powder products on the plane. The new TSA powder rule states that any powder-like substances over 12 ounces could be subject to further screening. If you are planning to carry THAT much setting powder on the plane, you need to be prepared! Twelve ounces of setting powder would equal to twelve Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powders. I know I get oily during a flight, but I’m pretty sure you would only need just one jar.

How to Avoid Dehydration on a Plane

Dehydration can worsen not only jet lag, but also take a toll on your skin. At home, your humidity levels can fall between 40 to 70 percent–on a flight, that level drops down to 20 percent. There are a couple of things you can do to combat dehydration: Stay away from caffeine and alcohol, and drink electrolytes to keep your hydration levels up. Want to look refreshed like you’ve just had a pro facial when stepping off of the plane?  Nuvesse’s serum-infused masks and rollerball are packed full of hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to plump up and brighten dry skin while coasting at 35,000 feet.

Can I bring perfume on the plane?

You definitely need to follow the 3.4 ounces rule when bringing a bottle of Chanel No. 5 on the plane. If you are paranoid about breaking your favorite scent, think about all of the fun rollerball fragrances or solid perfume options you can find! Don’t forget—this fragrance may bring back memories (good and bad!) of your trip, so choose wisely!

Recommended Travel-Sized Fragrances:
Nest Wisteria Blue Rollerball Fragrance

Chanel Tendre Solid
Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Solid Perfume $70

 

Is nail care okay to bring on a plane?

Can I bring a nail file on a plane?

You can definitely bring a nail file—but just to be safe, leave the metal ones at home or in your checked in luggage. Same with nail clippers—just leave those in your luggage. You may be surprised to learn that tweezers are okay to bring on the plane!

When it comes to nail polish, you have to follow the rules and put it in the quart-sized plastic bag with your other liquids—but please do not paint your nails on the plane! The vapor would fill the entire cabin and it’s not polite.

Cividini Runway NYFW Spring 2019

6 Pretty Spring Beauty and Hair Trends For 2019

Spring is definitely in the air! We busted out our spring survival gear this past weekend: ponytail holders, light moisturizers, and packed our purse with sheer glossy lip shades. With all the excitement that spring brings to us year after year, we get the giddiest over switching our beauty looks from winter chill out to spring garden party!

Behold our curated list of six spring beauty and hair trends straight from the 2019 spring and summer runways. Proceed reading with a bit of caution: it is hard to choose a favorite!

Electric Eyes

One of the looks we’re loving is adding a pop of spring flavor to your eye look with just a swipe of a bright eyeliner shade. The spring/summer runways proved that neon eye makeup is inevitable for 2019. Seen at Christian Siriano, Cividini, and Byblos ready-to-wear fashion shows, the neon trend is easy to wear with your everyday attire.

How to wear the trend: Create a winged eyeliner look, or draw the color in your waterline. It is up to you to create something that falls within your beauty comfort zone!

Our recommendation: Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils at Sephora.com

Go For The Gloss

Glossy and luminous skin appears youthful and dabbing a soft sheer wash of pink color on the eyes, cheeks, and lips will take your look to the next level of ageless. Pink color around the eyes is not for everyone because it may make you appear ill, but we encourage you to give it a shot this season!

How to wear the trend: If your skin is already oily, you may want to skip the skin gloss and go for a fine shimmery sheer powder highlighter instead (Moonplay’s Vow is a good one). This look is quick to apply–just dab a glossy pink lip balm on the lips and cheeks (try Becca’s Beach Tint in Dragonfruit) with your fingers (eyes optional). For extra skin gloss, lightly dab a gloss made specifically for the face (we like the Catrice Dewy Wet Look Stick) on the areas where you want to dew it up!

A Plum Pair

Plum is one of those shades that look great on nearly every skin tone, and it looks on-trend every season. What makes this beauty trend a bit different is that it pairs glossy plum lips with a plum eye look–monochromatic and chic. This look was spotted on Armani’s Spring/Summer 2019 NYFW runway and we’re ready to try it this weekend!

How to wear the trend: Pick a plum eyeshadow shade that suits you, whether you love matte or shimmery, there is a match out there for you (try the Viseart Theory IV Amethyst Palette). Swipe it sheer all over the top lid and smoke it out in your lash line if you dare! Apply even coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes. Go for a glossy plum lip shade for spring–the Armani Ecstacy Lacquer Liquid Lipstick in #602 Vertigo feels divine on the lips and looks oh-so-classy.

Silver hair trend spring 2019

Silver Linings

Is it just us, or is the silver hair trend too good to call it quits? There are so many ways to try this trend–some more expensive than others. L’Oreal has created products for its Colorista line that makes at-home temporary color very easy to do! Before committing to your stylist’s bleach, try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Hair Color Spray or the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary Hair Color, which are both one-day, wash out products.

Baby Blonde Highlights

Adding just a touch of blonde highlights to your natural hair is one way to amp up your beach babe factor. To get the look, your hairdresser will place very fine blonde highlights around the face and part of the hair, with the highlights becoming gradually more prominent at the tips of the hair. Get inspired to plan your baby highlights on Pinterest.

Blushing Pink

If you are willing to allow unique color into your hair, you will love the blush pink hair color trend! Nobody does blush pink hair like Guy Tang, and we wish he could do our own hair. Since we can’t have him at the moment, we can achieve this at a local salon with Tang’s product line. Pass this link along to your stylist who can pick Guy Tang’s #myidentity products online.

If you try any of these beautiful spring trends, we want to see your pics! Tag us at #triabeauty for a chance to get a #repost!
