Are you ready to put your best face forward this Melbourne Cup? Whether you’re kicking things off with a champagne breakfast or racing for the finish line, you need to be prepared for a long and event-filled day. Is your beauty routine prepared for heat, humidity and all day fun? ry.com.au have prepared these Melbourne cup make up and hair tips to get you through the racing spring carnival.
No Frizz Hair
Your hair looks perfect at home only to become a victim to humidity and heat an hour into the race. “KMS Hair Stay Anti-Humidity Seal is formulated with 24-hour humidity shielding proteins. Its anti-humidity seal protects hair against unwanted frizz, while adding a glossy finish to your look”, says James Patten, Style Director at Ry.com.au.
Curl Secret from VS Sassoon is as simple as this: hair goes in and curls come out. Easy to use, we’re sure you’ll agree that this secret weapon is the most revolutionary hair care product since the straightening iron.
You know your race day beauty routine has to include sunscreen on your shoulders, arms and chest, but what about your face? You don’t have to make a choice between foundation and sunscreen! Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base is mineral makeup that offers all day staying power and SPF 20 to protect you from UV rays while evening skin tone and covering blemishes. Try it with a Hydration Spray to keep your look as fresh at the end of the race as it was at the starting line.
Keep your pucker perfect with NP Set Lip Stain & Plumper. Lip stain last longer than lip-gloss, keeping you looking effortlessly gorgeous all day long. “Capsicum Resin stimulates circulation to plump lips while Cinnamon enhances your lips natural colour by increasing circulation”, says Ry.com.au Beauty Therapist, Shelby Paton.
Details count, and your nails shouldn’t be overlooked any day, let alone on race day. Invest in a manicure before race day or wear fresh polish. We suggest Essie Ballet Slippers, a perfect subtle pink for an all-natural beauty. Your nails will look lovely holding that glass of champagne!
