But how should you do your makeup? And how do you make it look good all day long? The races are a formal event and looking the part is important. The races are also a long event so ensuring your makeup looks and feels good all day long is an effort in itself. These are the makeup tips and hacks you need to know for the Spring Races.
Probably one of the most important tips we can give you is the great old saying that "less is more".
If you want natural glam, you can achieve this by using smaller amounts of makeup. Use a light hand and sweep on sheer shades of blush and highlight for a lit-within glow. This will give you a much more natural radiant look while still being a little on the glam side.
If you're planning on a fabulous eye look, we recommend getting it done first – before you start on your complexion. Imagine having your foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush and highlighter all complete to perfection. Then one thing ruins it. Eyeshadow fall out everywhere!
Avoid this catastrophe by doing your eye makeup first. It will not only save you a lot of hassle but emotional distress as well.
If you spent all that time and effort nailing your glam, the least you could do is set it into place. Whether you use a powder or a setting spray, it will save your makeup come race day.
Without setting your makeup, there are a number of things that can go wrong. Your makeup can even crease and slide right off your face. By using setting powder, your makeup won't budge throughout the big day. Using a setting mist will also set your makeup but will give it a more natural sheen as it causes your powder and liquid products to melt into one another.
A great lip colour can complete any kind of makeup look. Whether it be a nude, berry or pink – the options are endless!
There are also a number of formula options – creamy, matte, gloss or satin. We recommend testing your chosen lip before the big day. Make sure it doesn't crust, fade away or smear while eating cheese and drinking wine.
If this is your first time attending the races, you need to know that it can be a long day. Hours on end really! We recommend choosing makeup that's built to wear all day long. Your glam face needs to last through a hot day in the sun at the races.
You can find a range of makeup products that are built to be long-wearing. These products won't crease or change colour after a couple of hours.
Spring races are all about having fun. There's an abundance of bright colours and patterns everywhere – so why not reflect this in your makeup look?
Get creative and experiment with what works for you. For some, that may mean a blue eyeshadow and we don't judge! But, you can also opt for a thick liquid wing or a bright pop of colour on the lips. Have fun with it!
Keeping the makeup light around the eyes can make you look more natural. However, using the right product can help you look glam at the same time.
A good tip to achieve this is focusing on your base like bronzer, blush and highlighter more than your eye makeup. Some liner and modest false lashes are more than enough for the races.
Depending on the type of primer you use, it can help create a dewy or matte finish, blur your pores and make your foundation stick all day long.
Choose the right one for you and your skin type. There are a number on the market so it can be a little confusing for some. Luckily for you, we have a guide on the best primers that you can check out here.
