How many people fly the friendly skies?

Does soap and water not remove the makeup? Or is it a case of not wanting to get too dried out?
Not wanting to get too dried out. My skin is pretty delicate and on top of that I'm developing broken capillaries and rosacea (happens to the women on both sides of my family), so I have to be very careful.

Exactly, SD. I went carefully through what I bring to a comp, and I was able to get the following into that 1-quart plastic ziplock bag for "liquids and gels":
  • mascara
  • liquid eyeliner
  • travel-size tube of LA Looks Mega Hold Gel
  • travel-size can of Tre Semme Hair Spray
  • bottle of liquid foundation
  • gel deoderant
  • small tube of tanner (the "for faces" stuff often comes in < 3oz. bottles)
  • tube of eyelash glue
  • small bottle of makeup remover
absolutely smart list!!! However I have trouble to find travel size can of TreSemme Hair spray, I checked Duane Reade again this morning, the smallest bottle is 6 oz.

btw, I've never put eyelash glue separate into zip lock bag for domestic flights, and never problem. Usually eyelash glue around 1 oz, too small for them to worry, i guess.

I don't use liquid foundation, I use stick foundation from Benefit which is long lasting and considered "non-liquid", so I don't need to pack to zip lock bag;(

reminds me...i was still finding eyelash glue emerging from my lashes as of last night. where does that stuff hide????
oh girl, you need to remove eye makeup thoroughly!!! use a good non irritating eye makeup remover. Not just soap & water or facial cleanser. Use something specifically for eyes.

Also don't use eyelash glue or mascara older than 3 months, I had an irritating eyelid over the weekend and went to see eye doctor, doctor told me not to use cosmetics over 3 months old since once the bottles opened, there cosmetics could have chemical reactions with the bacterias in the air.

I now have to throw out my old eyelash glue which is more than one year old and I re-purchased a mascara, and eyeliner, damn, costly to replace eye makeups every 3 months:(

A dance partner could pack his own ziplock bag with his own travel-size hairspray etc.
If I wait for my dance partner to do so, it won't be done until last minute, and he forgot things and always ended up "borrow" mine. So I guess either I pack 2 zip lockers including mine and his, or pack larger potion of everything for checked luggage.

I got mine at Long's which is kind of the West Coast equivalent of CVS. The Long's here are as big as supermarkets, though, and have a whole section of travel size items that are kept separate from the regular items. So, if you go back to Duane Reade, ask if they have a travel size area -- don't just look in the regular hair care area.

I buy my hairspray in the super economy size, something like 32 oz, and just refill old bottles. For travel I buy 3oz generic spray bottles and fill them up from the big bottle.

The site I gave you for eyelashes is the store where I buy the empty bottles I use for travel. I put everything I own into bottles 3oz or less from that store and manage to fit into a ziplock and not check bags. I have to get creative sometimes, but so far it has worked out ok.
 
where do these threads come from? I dont think I've landed here before.

HATE air canada - and it used to be the best airline. Now you can fly coast to coast without getting as much as a peanut.

LOVE porter air lines. Its tiny with only 6 prop (nice bomadiers) planes but it flies off Toronto island which means no lines on the express way getting to the airport (how can the larges city in Canada have an airport without any train service?

Maybe I should continue on the whining thread.......

I imagine it would be pretty expensive to build a tunnel to Toronto Island.

Speaking of building tunnels, how far have they got the Sheppard line running now? Did they ever decide if it was going to cross the Don Valley?
