Whether you’re there for the exciting live performances, exhilarating races or glamorous after-parties, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the adrenaline rush of Grand Prix weekend. But with these heart-pumping activities come meticulous planning on the style front. There are outfits to plan and makeup considerations that will take you from the podium to the bar (and beyond). After all, why put in all that effort if it’s going to melt away midday?
To help your makeup last longer, make-up artist Marie Soh recommends to prep your skin well, have a good skincare routine and allow the product to absorb.
“Use a good primer without too much silicone and set using loose powder and setting spray,” she explains. “It’s important that you press the loose powder into your skin and not just glide it over.”
Marie says you can apply your sheer formula the “lazy girl way” by just using your fingers and blend well. Her preferred method is to use a sponge and blot the product into the skin for a beautiful blended and natural finish.
“I like to layer on where I feel I need a bit more coverage,” she adds.
It’s also time to make the switch from heavy matte and powder formulas to heat-proof tinted products and cream formulas, as well as lip products that are subtle and moisturising.
She says selecting the best lightweight formula depends on your comfort level and preference. She personally like “those that feel like nothing on my skin after applying”.
Beat the heat with these sheer formulas.
