Easy Beauty Prep for Raceday

Self Tannning At Home

Hair treatment

Hair treatment a few days before is a good idea to refresh tied locks and getting them looking nice and shiny. That said, dry shampoo is also a saviour on race day!

Face Mask

A face mask can really make a difference and is one of the quickest and easiest things you can do to give your skin an instant boost. Apply mask the night before and sit for 5-10 minutes whilst it dries. Use a warm washer to wipe off the mask, and moisturise. You will feel a million bucks afterwards!

Nails

Well-kept nails are important for looking chic and polished at the races. Shellac is always a good option as it doesn’t chip. Go for a neutral in spring like white or beige, and try something darker in winter like cherry or a black based purple.

Tan

Tan is obviously optional thing as some people look better without one! If you are going to fake tan or spray tan make sure you do it a few days before so the colour isn’t too intense on the day. It can give you a beautiful glow and compliment a colourful dress.

Lashes

Single lashes are great for raceday. They’re they same length of a normal fake lash strip, but without the ‘dolly’ look. They provide a beautiful natural look which will ultimately amplify your whole makeup look. Strategically place individual lashes to make yours look more full- you’ll be surprised with the difference they can make!
