Your racing day beauty essentials
Getting ready for a day at the tracks is half the fun of racing season, don't you think? But there’s nothing more frustrating than taking the time to look nothing less than perfect only to end up looking a little worse for wear after a few hours (or perhaps drinks) later.
So what’s the solution to racing day beauty wear-and-tear? Having the right products on hand to ensure that you look and feel your best no matter how long your day (and possibly even your night) is.
That ‘do looked wonderful when you walked out the door, without a flyaway in sight, didn’t it? Make sure it stays that way and doesn’t succumb to the heat and humidity by using a frizz-fighting hairspray that offers a good amount of hold. Not only will it help keep your style in place for hours on end, it’ll also ensure that your hair doesn’t get fluffy and fuzzy.
Spring racing hair essential: John Frieda FRIZZ-EASE Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hair Spray.
If you often find yourself saying, “ugh, my make-up has completely melted off my face,” then it’s time you invested in a long-wearing foundation. And if you use a foundation that’s as hydrating as it is long lasting, your skin will feel comfortable all day long, too. Psst! Apply a long-lasting lipstick when you’re getting ready and take it with you in your purse for a top-up as the sun sets.
Spring racing make-up essentials: Bodyography Natural Finish Foundation, and Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick.
Did you buy some new heels for the races? I bet they look fabulous. (I also bet they’ll end up in your hands by the end of the day!) Don’t let a long day and hurting heels bring down your look - instead, use gel cushion inserts to help relieve the pressure from the ball of your foot and give you that extra bit of comfort in your heels. You’ll be surprised how much longer you can keep going when your feet aren’t burning every time you take a step!
Spring racing foot essential: Scholl Party Feet Invisible Gel Cushion
Tip: Got a pair of high-heeled sandals in mind for the races? Then it's a good idea to spend some quality time with your Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File. It'll remove hard skin in seconds and turn unsightly tootsies into feet you'll want to show off!
Having a faux glow is almost synonymous with the races, but you’ll want to make sure that your fake tan keeps your skin hydrated all day and won’t be affected by any sweat/rain/champagne spillages. For an instant hit of colour, use a wash-off tan that can only be removed with soapy water and is packed with nourishing ingredients.
Spring racing tanning essential: Garnier Ambre Solaire Bronze Minute Tinted Moisturizing Gel.
Spring is meant to be warm, not stifling hot. But sometimes the gods have other plans and suddenly you’re all self-conscious about body odour, while trying to inconspicuously hold your arms out so that you don’t get sweat stains on your expensive dress. The solution? Use a deodorant that’s specifically formulated to keep your pits dry and odour-free and that lasts all day, so you can spend less time worrying about sweat, and more time enjoying the races!
Spring racing deodorant essential: NIVEA Double Effect Roll-On.
