Nail Your Day To Night Makeup Look

If you’re at the races, you’ll already be looking amazing – but how to tweak your daytime glamour to after dark va-voom? Here are some easy tips

Swiftly sexy

Sometimes there isn’t much time to linger at the mirror after the last race is run, so duck into the bathroom and simply intensify the makeup you’re already wearing. Add a deeper shade of lipstick (dial it up from nude to red, or pink to plum), brush on extra mascara, dab on more blusher for a dramatic cheekbone, and add some white highlighter in the inner corners of your eyes and on the browbone. Instant glam!

From sheer to shine

When the moon replaces the sun, glitter’s the way to go. Add just a touch to your cheekbones, brow, or even your shoulders, if they’re bare. It’s too much by day, but perfect for the sultry lights of a club or bar. Those on-trend foil tattoos are easy to apply, too, for instant boho-luxe chic.

Power up your perfume

If you can, carry a miniature of your fragrance and spritz it on your pulse points as you transition from track to party, to revive your alluring aroma.

Making eyes

Eye drops earn their place in your raceday handbag by doing double duty. As well as banishing dryness, they add a tantalising glint, enhancing that sexy side-eye you might just be throwing at the gorgeous guy you spotted earlier at the track.
