Speedboats: Top 7 Tips To Avoid Stepping Aboard A Glamourpuss & Stepping Off A Sourpuss!


Travelling by speedboat is most of the time good fun!  Its thrilling, exciting and exhilarating.  But in my experience, those words could only be used to describe smaller speedboats that you hire yourself on holiday, or perhaps as part of a tour that you may have organised.  The speedboat journey’s I’m referring to here are private transfers on which you are sat for no less than an hour and half – pedal to the metal, covering around 100 miles at 90mph!

You know how frustrating it can be when you’re at the end of your make up routine, all fresh and polished ready for your mascara finale when BAM!…. You blink at the wrong time causing the mascara wand to brush over your perfectly applied eyeshadow, or it stabs you in the eye causing that unsightly black smudging!!  Eyes ruined!!

This awesome little business card trick will eliminate that problem forever!  Bold claim I know but I can back it up.  Here’s how:

  1. Place a business card just above your eye and using a pen or eyeliner,  mark on the card two dots to reflect the length of your eye (a dot where the edge of your eyes meets your nose and one on the other side where the eye meets your temple)
  2. Using the pen or eyeliner, connect the two dots whilst drawing the shape of your eye (no need to be perfect here).  Then cut out the half circle from the business card
  3. Position the semi circle cut out part of the business card on top of your eyelid right behind your lashes and gently press and lift.
  4. Your lashes will push themselves up against the business card ready for your mascara application.  Any accidental blinking is impossible using this method and any smudges will go on the card and never around your eye!

Voila! Perfect mascara and smudge free eyes! Continue reading…
