United x Cowshed

Cowshed was selected from over 100 beauty brands to be the official partner of United Airlines, meaning all travelers flying United Global FirstSM and United BusinessFirst will soon by flying with our products. We asked Cowshed’s Managing Director Christina Russillo for some of her travel-ready tips:

Q: Which make-up bags are best for traveling?

CR: If you’re checking a bag, I love the Cheeky ‘Let’s Kiss & Tell Make up’ bag to pile in as many products as possible. And then I’ll use the Cowshed travel-friendly bag to breeze through security with 100ml liquids.

Q: Pre red-eye beauty regime?

CR: Facial mist + Eye Cream + Sleep Mask + Shut Eye = Bye bye to your (literal) red eye.

Q: How so you prevent skin drying out on long-haul flights?

CR: Use an ultra-hydrating serum designed for night use. I love Cowshed’s Perfecting Night Serum.

Q: What’s the best way to look fresh getting off the plane?

CR: Really, it comes down to drinking lots of water and trying to get some sleep. If that fails, a cheeky lip and cheek tint will perk you right up so you at least look rested.

Q: How do you keep hair looking great post-flight?

CR: Before you get on the plane, apply dry shampoo and put your hair in a twisted bun (if your hair is long enough, it’s best to actually tie it in a knot). When you land, shake it out and let it loose for natural, tousled waves.

Q: What’s one product to pack before a long trip?

CR: SPF is essential even if you’re not going on a beach vacation. And never underestimate the power of a good facial cleanser!
