Spring Racing Beauty Edit: Hello Hollywood
When we first think of the Spring Racing Carnival, we typically focus on the age-old question – what am I going to wear? And whilst your outfit is crucial to each race day, so is your beauty regime, an element that can be overlooked! This Spring season, Westfield Beauty Authority Jade Kisnorbo is here to help complete your race day look, focusing on effortless glam and a statement bold lip.
It's all about the base
What comes before the makeup is just as important as the makeup itself! Ensure that you prep your skin with a moisturiser that will keep your skin feeling and looking nourished and hydrated, such as the Simple Daily Moisturiser from Priceline. Being Spring, the sun will be shining (we hope), so ensure your moisturiser contains SPF sunscreen to protect your skin.
Next up it’s time to layer on the base, starting with your foundation and concealer, and finishing with a powder. Jade recommends a translucent powder, such as the Bare Minerals Translucent power from MECCA, to set your makeup, enhance your complexion and give you that glam look.
Highlight and contour
The final touches to your base look come from contouring and highlighting. It’s important to remember that with Spring Racing, you are in the broad daylight, so you want to ensure that your contouring is soft and natural. To create this look, Jade has used the NARS Bronzing powder from MECCA, which offers a natural, sun-kissed glow. You then want to apply a highlighter to make your skin more radiant, such as the Josie Moran Highlighter from MECCA. Remember to apply your highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes and Cupid’s bow as well!
Eye see you
This glamour look for Spring Racing focuses on a bold lip as the hero, so keep your eye makeup soft and clean. Apply mascara to your lashes, focusing on the outer lashes, which will give your eyes some lift. Follow this up with some natural look lashes, such as the Ardell Lashes from Priceline, to really make your eyes pop! It’s also key to remember your brows. Try feathering them with your brow pencil so they look both full and natural.
The red lip
The racing season isn’t complete without a bold red lip making an appearance! It’s the final touch to your look, and an extra accessory to your outfit. For the Spring Racing Carnival, it’s all about stains and lacquers that are smudge proof and long lasting. Jade has used the Fenty red lip Stunna Lip Paint from Sephora for this look. A great way to keep a long-lasting lip is to powder the putter lip area with a translucent powder first. Opt for a powder that is fine and doesn’t build up, using brands such as Hourglass and Bare Minerals from MECCA. Another dual-purpose product for your collection!
Get inspired and be bold this Spring Racing season.
