Imagine this scenario: Your flight is about to land, and you just spent five hours in a stuffy plane. Your skin is dry and oily at the same time (how is that even possible, you ask?!), your hair is messy and you're not exactly looking camera-ready. But your main squeeze is waiting for you at baggage claim and you definitely don't want him seeing you like this. It's time for a mini beauty emergency! Get yourself to the nearest restroom and perform these travel beauty tips and tricks, and you'll be looking fresh to death in no time. 


A lot of brands these days have travel-friendly mini sprays you can bring with you on-the-go. Post flight, head to the restroom, flip your head over and spritz a little dry shampoo on your roots for beautifully fresh, textured locks. We like Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray.  


Color makes us look alive, especially when it's front and center, like on your lips. Glossing your lips with a bright pink takes only seconds but instantly brightens up your look. Our new obsession? bareMinerals Birthday Cake lip gloss.


Ok, ok, so fragrance doesn't exactly affect your physical looks, but it can affect the way you carry yourself. What woman doesn't feel more beautiful and fresh when wearing her favorite scent? We certainly do. Stow a mini fragrance rollerball in your carry-on bag and dab on wrists and your neck before you leave the plane, and you'll be good to go! Our pick: Lavanilla the healthy roller-ball Fresh Vanilla Lemon.


You likely don't have time for a full makeup makeover right now, but you can freshen up your skin with some blotting papers. Blotting papers were made for that just-off-the-plane shine we all get, and they won't ruin your perfect makeup. Our faves: Tatcha Blotting Papers
