Everyone wants to look their best when they are in public, especially when attending outdoor events, where it is important to not only look good but to maintain your look throughout the event. It is also important to stay safe when you are outdoors which means wearing appropriate clothing for the weather and looking after your skin, all the while staying stylish. Here are some tips to keep you looking good no matter where you go.
1. Use a tinted moisturiser with a high SPF rating
Even if the event you are attending is held on an overcast day, you can still get burnt if you are outdoors for long enough. Some people have more sensitive skin than others and can be affected more but either way, it is always a good idea to keep your skin protected from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Using a tinted moisturiser is also preferential to using foundation as it doesn’t cake and allows your skin to breathe while giving you a healthy tone. This is especially important for people with sensitive skin or if you are outdoors on a warm day.
2. Use waterproof makeup
This is a must for anyone attending outdoor events. Waterproof makeup will keep you looking good no matter if it is raining or if it is swelteringly hot. No one wants their mascara running down their face and this will prevent that. There are all sorts of waterproof versions of your favourite makeup products available so it might be worth checking out what your options are.
3. Accessorise with some stylish headwear
If you’re planning on spending a day at the races, then your headwear is just as important as your outfit. Major horse racing events such as the Melbourne Cup and the Turnbull Stakes are glamorous occasions where everyone wants to look their best and stand out in the crowd. More often than not, women opt for a stylish hat or headpiece to complement their outfits when attending the races. The most common of these is a fascinator which is mostly worn at horse racing events. There are an almost infinite number of styles to choose from so you shouldn’t have much of an issue finding one that will work with your outfit. In recent years, hatinators have become increasingly popular and are a cross between a hat and a fascinator.
4. Go for neutral tones in makeup
Sometimes less is more. If you stick to more neutral tones that complement your natural skin tone, then you have a much better chance of achieving a natural glow rather than looking out of place at an outdoor event. Warm and cool colours work best with a neutral skin tone such as ash, champagne, or dusty pink. Avoid vibrant colours such as yellow and red to keep your outfit perfectly blended with your surrounding environment.
5. Stay hydrated
One of the most important things to do to help you stay looking healthy and glowing is to make sure you are hydrating yourself regularly. Dry, peeled skin is not a good look and the effects of dehydration can become evident even days later. It is also important for your all-around well-being as dehydration can lead to health issues. Drinking plenty of liquids throughout the day will help keep you feeling refreshed and vibrant.
