Touch-ups at the airport just got easier, thanks to Benefit

Benefit glam_and_go

San Francisco-based Benefit Cosmetics is just as loved for its adorable packaging and cheeky slogans as its high-quality, classic beauty products. Now the makeup brand is taking all its charm and brightening up one of our least favorite places to hang out: the airport. Starting this fall, Benefit will roll out 25 super-cute vending machines in major airports including JFK, Austin and Las Vegas.

Designed to look like vintage pink beauty buses, the kiosks will contain 30 best-selling products that travelers can pick up while rushing to their connections. Got some time to kill before your flight? A graphic user interface shares makeup tips and tricks.

Maggie and Annie Ford Danielson, Benefit global beauty authorities, travel at least two weeks per month. They tell us about their on-the-go must-haves.

Maggie:
On long flights, these are my essentials: travel-size eye cream, travel-size face mist, mini Benetint, boi-ing, eye drops and travel-size dry shampoo. I can basically transform myself with those items.

Annie:
Traveling can be torture on the skin, so it’s really important to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and skip the vino! Also, make sure to moisturize over a long flight. B.right Total Moisture Cream is a total lifesaver. Oh, and the best beauty trick of all, post-flight, is to smile!You instantly look more beautiful and radiant.
