Postcard Series: Shalini Vadhera Loves Masking Before Flying.
Travel- hate it, love it? Ummm obsessed! Love It! Traveling as a child to visit family in Kenya and India inspired my entire career! And was the inspiration for my book Passport To Beauty.
It's not a vacation unless... I’ve shopped, eaten a ton of yummy food, laid on a beach and brought out the natural curl in my hair from the tropical climate.
Planes, trains, or automobiles? All of above - anything that will get me to my next destination. Planes are my favorite though! I go to In N Out Burger by LAX just to watch the planes land...
Checked bags or carry on? Both - one day I’ll master the carry on but for longer trips I like to bring a few options and leave some room for the discoveries I want to bring back.
Travel beauty- bare or elaborate? Elaborate - I love a smokey eye and I’m a firm believer in representing your brand no matter where you go. I love makeup and I love wearing it no matter how long the flight and trip is! (You might catch me touching up my makeup an hour before landing).
In general my beauty routine is... I start with good skincare like the Passport To Beauty Tibetan Goji Berry Eye Serum (which is truly better than botox!!!) Dior Airflash Foundation, LOreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black, Mac Lipstick in Kinda Sexy, Avon cheek stick in Icy Pink, and I always end the day with a cup of the Passport To Beauty Beauty Warrior Skin radiance Tea. It has made my skin look so much better!
I must pack ______ when traveling? A pashmina, a pair of flats, Sun Warrior Warrior Vegan Protein Powder, Lara Bars and a few magazines.
Best travel tip? Mask the night before you fly and you’ll land with gorgeous radiant looking skin (I’m also known to mask in flight).
Upon arrival at my destination... I drink a ton of water and hit the ground running.
Favorite travel spot? Gosh I have so many! Bangkok, Thailand, The South of France, Paris, London, Tokyo, NY, OMG I get inspired everywhere I go!
What are your 3 must see/do things in this city?
Bangkok - Night market for awesome fun shopping and of course a $5 Thai Massage
South of France - Visit the town of Eze for a step back in time, a michelin rated restaurant and incredible views of the French Riviera
London - Portobello Market in Notting Hill and a 5am Kabob run at Maroosh - Its a must!
