TOP TIPS FOR HB GALS TO SLAY NEXT RACE DAY!

race day tips from brisbane lash and brow therapist

As this year continues to fly past us, we find ourselves hurtling towards Spring Racing Carnival season which is that time of the year the flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, the weather is warming, and we find ourselves booked in with events right through to Christmas. As Spring Carnival season kicks off, so does the season for extra glam. Think glowing tans, long lashes, beautiful brows and a confident smile (priceless!). 

While it’s easy to get caught up in the fashions on the field, it is a timely reminder that your look includes your makeup, your lashes and your brows. The party season is about to begin and to ensure you’re always ready to go and looking the part when last minute events pop up we recommend pre-booking regular brow and/or lash appointments. Those touch-up appointments between your main treatments are a must to ensure your look is flawless every time so if you’re not already in the habit of visiting the salon between your main appointments – it’s time to start! While your main treatments will be scheduled for every 4 – 6 weeks, we recommend you set aside time every 3 weeks during the peak season to maintain that perfect look for every single event you attend. Remember that as we approach party season, we get busier as people are getting themselves event ready – so book yourself in ahead of time and don’t count on that last minute cancellation that you have been able to snatch up during the winter months. 

We can book all your appointments from here to the new year at your next appointment to make sure that you never miss out on a full treatment or maintenance appointment, ensuring you look and feel amazing throughout the racing and party season. 

Now we have your lashes and brows sorted out, here are our top three tips for making sure you survive race day in style… 

  1. Choose your footwear wisely… unlike a dinner and drinks with the girls where you can opt to take breaks and sit throughout the night, race days will have you on your feet for long periods of time and walking on uneven surfaces including soft grass. If you have ever tried to elegantly walk through a field of grass with stiletto heels you will agree with me that this is something you do not do twice. Rather than a super high or thin heel, opt for a wedge that will still give you great leg lengthening without the walking difficulty, particularly after a few glasses of bubbles. 

  2. Let your accessories shine… race days will be filled with vibrant colours, unbridled femininity and eye-catching fashion but even if you are a little hesitant to go all out with your race day dress, you can still make a strong impression with your accessories. Choosing a subdued dress and using jewellery, handbags and belts to make your outfit pop is an affordable and stylish way to seamlessly slide in amongst the fashionistas and look a million bucks.

  3. Slip, Slop, Slap and Slurp… one way to ruin a good race day is to get sunburnt and dehydrated. Remember, you are going to be outside and potentially in the sun all day and therefore we cannot stress how important it is to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water. Once you get caught in the excitement of the day it is easy to forget to hydrate and you most likely will not be reapplying sunscreen, so make sure you take care of yourself before you arrive at the gates with lots of hydration and skin preparation. Race days are an occasion you can get away with wearing a hat, or should we say millinery, so why not choose an option that also protects from the sun.   

Follow these easy steps, keep your between service appointments up and you are sure to slay your way through party season this year!
