Sonal Singh, Director, Christie’s India
My go-to products include…hand cream, chapstick and hairbrush.
I avoid…spritzing on perfume or anything with really strong fragrance as that often leads to an allergy.
I won’t leave home without…earplugs.
My best in-flight beauty tip involves…applying a healthy dose of cream before the flight so that my skin stays nourished.
My worst beauty mishap on a flight… took place when I lost track of time when I was flying with company. I’ve had a few fun flights with friends on board, but now I try to be a bit more disciplined about sleep on a flight, so the next day is somewhat normal.

My go-to products include…a vitamin E oil and a rose water spray.
I avoid…foundation or any heavy make-up, which can dehydrate the skin.
I won’t leave home without…my phone.
My best in-flight beauty tip involves….drinking plenty of water and trying to sleep on long flights. Also applying the Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Bright Skin Illuminating Moisturizer, which is another go-to product.
My worst beauty mishap on a flight…took place while dealing with a pimple outbreak just as I landed in Dubai for a shoot. Now I drink a lot more water on flights and always remove my make-up no matter how tired I am.

I won’t leave home without my…lip balm.
My best in-flight beauty tip involves…carrying a dry shampoo or a mist to keep hair smelling fantastic.

My go-to products include…a brow pencil, lipstick, hand moisturiser and lash curler.
I avoid…skin or base products like concealer or foundation.
I won’t leave home without…lip balm.
My best in-flight beauty tip involves…cleansing, hydrating and moisturising before boarding. Even my hair tends to get dry. I use a light serum and don’t tie up my hair, which causes breakage.
My worst beauty mishap on a flight…was dealing with papery, chapped lips. Post this, I ensure that I drink at least one-two litres of water through the entire duration.
