Work trips often equate to a lot of travelling, the itinerary is often ram-packed and there’s very little down time. Yet, you’re expected to be on show and all smiles for the most of it. Something the Duchess of Cambridge knows all too well.
As the Duke and Duchess start their five day tour of Poland and Germany, there’s no doubt that Kate will have planned with precision her hair and make-up for every section of the trip. It’s likely that her hairstylist Amanda Cook Tucker will be on hand for any evening events and she will stick to her signature eyeliner look. Don’t expect to see a statement red lipstick or an elaborate hairstyle. The Duchess always strikes an elegant but safe note to avoid overshadowing the event or causing a faux pas. But how should we approach our beauty look on a work trip? Here is a complete guide on what to pack, including travel-size versions in case you’re hand-luggage only.
There are some products you can’t get away with not packing, including you cleanser and moisturiser. However, there are some savvy, space-saving techniques to employ to lighten your load. Swap your traditional face wash for Clinique’s Fresh Pressed 7-day System with Pure Vitamin C, £25 for 7, and just add water and lather up. The vitamin C will also help to brighten your complexion for the day ahead.
