Alexa Chung has shared her travel beauty tips with fans.

As a presenter and fashion icon, the 30-year-old often has to jet around the world to attend glitzy events.

While flying and a hectic schedule might leave her feeling jetlagged, there's an easy way to combat the tiredness.

"I pop on MAC lipstick in Lady Danger when I travel," she revealed to British Glamour magazine.

"It makes me feel glamorous and sort of put together when I come off a long flight."

The star also shared another top travelling tip with her fans.

As the climate in a plane can dry out her skin, Alexa goes for extra helpings of moisturiser.

"I have ultra-dry skin," she confessed.

"My favourite moisturiser just got discontinued, so I'm looking for a new one. When I fly, I cover my face with Lucas' Papaw Ointment as plane air is so drying."

Alexa's trademark look includes vintage clothing, messed up hair and a flawless complexion.

In addition to this, she's never without a slick of black liquid eyeliner.

"It's my everyday look. When I was modelling, people did whatever make-up fitted the story - it's only when I started doing Popworld that I fell in love with liner," she explained.

"I had a professional doing my make-up on that first day and that was that - it kind of became my signature. I used to do the line with a gel liner and a brush - but then I discovered the felt-tip pen and it made it so much easier."
