Long Lasting Makeup


Sail/Motor & Charter/Private…

We are all on such different boats and yet there is one thing we all know too well… no two guests trips are identical. And while following a strict schedule would be easier for the entire team, it’s not always possible. Your afternoon break may be cut short or disappear completely. When I get ready for work in the morning, I need to know that my makeup will keep up with whatever the day throws at me!

I’ve enlisted the help of my go-to Beauty Experts with the addition of another FAB stewardess, Harriet to share their top picks for long-lasting makeup!



My name is Harriet and I’m from the UK. Yachting started out as a gap year and now 7 years later I’m Chief Stewardess on a 70m charter yacht. I’ve been luckily enough to have some incredible yachting experiences and blessed with a crew that feels like my family. I stepped up into my first senior role at 21 and haven’t looked back since! 

~ Foundation – Kat Von D Lock it Foundation {this won’t budge at all and will get you through from waking up in the morning to crawling into bed at night!}

~ Hourglass Vanish Stick

~ Too Faced Born This Way

~ Estee Lauder Double Wear

~ It Cosmetics CC Cream

~ Urban Decay All Night Setting Spray


Top Tip:  Too Faced – “Hangover Face Primer” this is incredible to mix into a pump of your foundation for some extra
nourishment and that perfect “dew” look.  It also makes your foundation last twice as long!”

~ Fenty Beauty by Rhianna – {This foundation is incredible. It lasts all day and gives a great coverage without feeling heavy or ‘caked on’}

~ MAC – “Mineralize Skin Finish”

~ Sephora – {“Beauty Amplifier” is for those days when you don’t need a heavy make up application but still want a slight glow.This primer has a very light tint in it and is a perfect cheat for when you don’t have the time for full face make up.}

~ Too Faced – “Better than Sex Mascara” and it’s all in the name.


~ Kat Von D (lock it foundation)

~ MAC (pro-longwear waterproof foundation {personally tested on a boat party in Ibiza}

~ MAC (in extreme dimension waterproof mascara)

~ NARS (pure radiant tinted moisturizer)


Top Tip:  “I tend to use two different foundations for the change in seasons. This is important! A Fresh and clean face is important before any make-up routines.  I do this even if I only have mascara and cream blush on (my  5min go-to).  Kiko Cream blushes are highly underestimated”

~ Too Face. Better Than Sex  Mascara.

~ Benefit Brow Wiz Eyebrow Pencil

~ Estee Lauder Double Wear  {Not only does this foundation last forever, it is light and Non-Transferable. White shirts and bronzed stains do not go well together! Laundry guys and girls will love you for it!}

Big Hugs,
