Virginia Alder, Flight Attendant, Reveals Her In-Flight Beauty Approach

"I get to visit lots of different countries and experience all different cultures," Virginia Alder, a flight attendant we met in Bryant Park, told us. "I just got in from Switzerland an hour ago, and am only here for 24 hours."

One of the perks of the job, of course, is seeing all the unique beauty items from each country. "When I'm traveling, my two key products are mascara and lipstick -- which gives you a bit of color even if you're tired." Her current favorite lip shade is from Swiss brand Mavala. As far as packing, she keeps it light with clothes, but not so much with beauty. "I always keep all my products with me -- it allows me to create a different look from day to night, even with the same outfit."
