When at an all-day extravaganza like racing, you don’t want your make-up to let you down. Depending on which racecourse you visit, it’s likely you will spend time both in and outdoors, so it’s’ important for make-up to complement you in both lights.
The weather is such an important element to consider as it will determine what products will be the best to use on the day. Long lasting products are key and setting them with good moisturisers and primers can help too.
Generally matte products wear better with unpredictable weather conditions but if you do decide to go with a shimmer based product, setting with a good primer is even more necessary to avoid creasing or the skin becoming too oily.
Waterproof and smudgeproof mascaras and liners are your best friend as is a perfectly set lip. A long lasting matte lipstick which can be chucked in your handbag is an essential for any season.
When it comes to seasons, spring and summer usually suit brighter colours and with day events, if you do end up wearing a bold lip keep your eyes neutral or vice versa.
On the day take your lipstick and powder with you so you can touch up makeup if needed and don’t forget to finish your overall look by using a setting spray to give you long lasting wear.
