Okay, okay so you might think it sounds silly, but doing ones makeup whilst operating a vehicle is a serious matter. A new UK study has found that almost seventy per cent of British women do their makeup on their morning transit to work, and we suspect Aussie ladies aren’t far off.
Besides the obvious risks: smudged mascara, lippie on the teeth, accidentally using your electric blue eyeliner as a lipliner – multi-tasking in the car can have disastrous results, read: attempting to cinch ones winged eyes while changing lanes into oncoming traffic rarely ends well.
The study further highlighted that an overwhelming amount of women (75%) had suffered cosmetic mishaps as a result of sudden stops in traffic while touching up on the go. Worse still are the results if you’re too short on time to spare a final hand mirror check before striding into your morning meeting with lipstick smeared across your cheek looking like you’ve just escaped from the loony bin.
Point to be made here ladies, is don’t apply and drive. Besides being really bad manners (touching up lipstick in public = acceptable, drawing on your eyebrows at the intersection = etiquette faux pas), putting on a face full of makeup whilst attempting to navigate through busy morning traffic will undoubtedly end up on your list of most regrettable decisions when you have to explain to the nice police officer why your mascara caused a three car pile-up.
Have you ever been guilty of doing your makeup while driving?
