The beauty secrets of the Emirates Cabin Crew

April 15

I recently had a very exciting opportunity – to visit the Emirates Aviation College and get an inside look into the Cabin Crew’s beauty look. I only recently learnt that Clarins Paris is the exclusive beauty brand they use and that there was so much more to the beauty look than those perfect red lips. After spending a day at the Aviation college with the team, trainers and getting a tour – I spoke to the training managers on the beauty look, the essential products and how the cabin crew get through a long haul flight still looking so polished.

What is the Emirates beauty look?

Natural look with a day make-up effect, lighter eye shadow with an eye liner and darker lips with different shades of red. Simple make-up to enhance cabin crew’s beauty.

What are the requirements for every cabin crew?

During their grooming training cabin crews are advised on the following:


The first beauty step:
