jet lag

Pulling yourself together after a long-haul flight or even an early morning commute can be a day’s work in itself, but as Bella Hadid has shown in a new Vogue makeup tutorial, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Given that she’d been travelling for “for two months straight” at the time of filming, Bella – who is well known for her stunningly simple beauty looks – surely knows a thing or two about concealing the dehydrating effects a hectic lifestyle can have on the skin.

And while it’s clear that the young model is using high-end makeup products in the clip, it is interesting to note the ease with which she applies them.  While so many makeup tutorials achieve stunning results through precise, intensive and time-consuming application processes, the secret to Bella’s success seems to be her laid back approach.

In the short new video the teen can be seen applying a liquid concealer to much of her face before blending it in quickly with a beauty blender.  She then uses a cream Dior contour stick to define her cheek bones.

Again she uses the cosmetics sponge to blend, before adding a powder highlighter to the high points of her face and filling in her brows roughly with an eyebrow pencil.

Unusually the 19-year-old is shown putting a lash primer and mascara on her eyelashes before adding a gold shimmer shadow to her lids with her finger.

Finally Bella uses some clear gloss on her lips and twirls her wet hair into a bun to complete her fresh-faced off-duty look.  It’s that simple!



Most folk seem to tackle their jet-lag via a mixture of lots of sleep, lots of coffee and lots of food – both taken at irregular intervals. 

Not so for celebrities, however. Indeed, the likes of heiress Millie Mackintosh tackles pesky jet-lag by SLAYING it in the gym.

Yes, the 26-year-old reality TV star this afternoon posted a short video to her Instagram account, which shows her in the midst of a SERIOUS workout. 

Having just returned from a weekend spent at the Melbourne Cup in Australia (as you do) Millie was evidently eager to get back into the swing of things today.

Also using the hashtag #trainlikeanangel, the wife of rapper Professor Green declared: "That is how you shake off jet lag @russellsbc style."

Russell Bateman is, of course, the hardcore trainer also responsible for the bodies of the likes of Laura Whitmore and Suki Waterhouse.

The clip has already notched up some 3,000 likes from her fans – with many also commenting on Ms Mackintosh's killer bod.

"I have those leggings… and I definitely don't look like that in them!!" laughed one.

"Jesus I'm tired just looking at that," said another, with a third offering: "Professor Green wins at punching above his weight."



There is nothing more annoying on a holiday than jet lag – well, there probably is but this it is pretty bad.

Thankfully, while you can’t completely prevent it from happening (unless you don’t fly too far away), there are ways to lessen its impact.

If you are flying to a country with a significantly different timezone – we’re talking Australia, here – you might want to gradually adjust your schedule to suit your new timezone.

The journey
 Set your watch according to your destination time and eat and sleep at the right times.

Drink water
Make sure your body stays hydrated so drink plenty of water throughout the journey. This will also help to keep your mind focused and aware of your surroundings.

Go to bed straight away
If you arrive at your destination in the middle of the night head to bed straight away, but make sure you get up at a reasonable hour in the morning – even if this means you only get four hours sleep!
