If you’re a lover of glowy skin, brushed up brows and going makeup-free over a smokey eye, chances are you’ve come across @bambidoesbeauty on Instagram. And if you haven’t yet, you’re welcome.
Elle McNamara is the face, camera-woman, and curator behind the fresh-faced Instagram page. Starting her feed in 2017, she’s reached over 20k followers in just a year and gives incredible shelfie game.
Hey, we love her so much that we snapped her up as one of our beauty columnists. Welcome to The Glam Squad, Bambi!
The beauty blogger, who recently scooped New-Gen Influencer at our Beauty Power List Awards, will be writing monthly columns so keep an eye out. For her first column, Bambi has shared her in-flight beauty regime.
If you’re a nervous flyer like me, having a little beauty travel pack nestled in your carry-on will REALLY distract you from thoughts such as… “How is this even possible?” and “What if there’s something wrong with the left falangi?”. And if you’re not, well it makes the time go quicker between that refreshment cart, doesn’t it?
I never wear makeup when flying, and I guess the pre-requisite to this in-flight beauty manual would be to go barefaced. Even if you’re having a breakout, own your natural beauty (your skin will thank you for it!).
So, the falangi stayed in tact during take off and the seat belt signs are off… let’s unpack, shall we? I keep all my beauty belongings in the uber chic but also really practical SpaceNK Travel Bag, which is airport security friendly (as it’s see through) and fits 100ml products nice and snug. Yes, it’s tempting to grab a cheap alternative from the high street but trust me, this is your ultimate travel investment (and not just for flying!).
