It’s mid-year vacation time, and besides making sure that the cosmetics you pack are TSA-approved, don’t spill and won’t cause baggage overload, you want them to be convenient. Because, hey, you’re on holiday. Which is why we dig products like Dior’s Backstage Airflash. The foundation, which debuted in 2014, comes in a mist form so that it’s less fiddly than liquid versions and – unlike spillage-proof compacts – calls for just one hand. With a blend of oils and light-diffusing pigments, it leaves a smooth, radiant finish that’s said to last 12 hours. Making it even better now: the introduction of five shades – Ivory, Light Beige, Linen, Medium Beige and Honey Beige – specifically for Asian skin tones. Equally clever is Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick. As its name suggests, it’s a stick – solid, not one bit sticky, no brush to deal with – yet offers the same shine and hint of colour as a gloss. It also moisturises with its vitamin-rich Kahai oil content. Fly enough? We think so.
