In the video, Swara can be seen applying a colour corrector followed by foundation, as she shaped her brows, applied eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, and finally, the perfect eye liner — without smudging it! Needless to say, the actor’s makeup skills are envy-worthy as she nailed each step effortlessly and the end result was a flawless look.

If you are impressed by Swara’s on-point makeup skills and wondering if you, too, could apply makeup on a flight, we have got you covered. Remya Prajul, a makeup artist, shared some tips that can come in handy when you do not have time for elaborate makeup and still want to look fresh after a long flight.

“Wash your face and moisturise it properly before applying a BB cream or foundation, whichever is convenient. If you wish to sport a natural look, skip the compact,” she told

Next, she suggested applying an eyeliner “with an eyeliner pencil instead of a liquid one.” “For eye makeup, you can use nude lipstick as an eyeshadow, and finally apply lipstick on the lips,” she suggested.
