Spring racing is here and it’s time to look your best.
Race days are long so ensuring your hair and makeup looks and feels good all day can be a challenge. These essential beauty tips will ensure you’re at your beautiful best all race day.
Makeup looks better on well nourished skin. The night before prep skin with a serum, eye cream and moisturiser. On race day morning apply a moisturiser with SPF.
Carry blotting papers in your clutch to take away shine.
Use a good quality whitening toothpaste the day before and on the morning of the races to brighten and freshen teeth.
A setting powder will help foundation last longer and a great way to avoid shine from race-day heat.
A waterproof mascara will prevent run-off from perspiration and squinting in the hot sun.
A spray of face mist before you leave home will help to set makeup. If you have room in your handbag, fill a small travel-size bottle with mist and spray during the day to keep makeup radiant.
Race day hair to last the day needs preparation. Start with a moisturising serum or strong-hold mousse and finish with a strong-hold, good quality hairspray.
Beauty tip: Wash hair the night before to hold style better.
