Beauty Trends & Tips for the 2018 Spring Carnival with Elite Hair & Makeup Academy

We caught up with Elite Hair and Make Up Academy‘s Marketing Executive and Trainer, Nikki Di Matteo, to talk about this years beauty trends for the Spring Racing Season.

Elite Hair and Make Up Academy students in conjunction with Paintbox Cosmetics will be our Beauty Bar Partners again for 2018 & will be at all 4 race days in the Home Straight Enclosure providing touch-ups for all race-goers.

What are the biggest colours for spring summer?

This year expect to see a lot of bright colour, especially Reds and Pinks – with the sun out and green grass under our feet, your bold Red and Pink outfits will absolutely POP and will make for great contrast in your instagram pics 😉

What will be the most popular make-up trend we will be seeing this year?

We expect to see some gorgeous coloured smokey eyes this year weather it is to match your bold outfits or to add a bit of colour to your white/black frocks. We also know that everyone LOVES highlighter especially in summer for that dewy glow. Remember to not put to much on as we will all be out under the bright sun a soft sweep of gold shimmer is all you will need.

What would be the ideal make up look for the races?

Light, dewy, glowy skin. Lightly contoured cheeks and lots of lashes!

What is the one product every girl must bring with her to the races?

Your brow products, never underestimate lightly filling in your brows with some powder – it can give you an instant eye lift and complete your make-up look

What hair trends do we expect to see this year?

We expect to see a lot of undone loose waves, paired perfectly with any wide brimmed or boater hat. Also expect to see a lot of pony hair styles this year, which can be worn with any headband, turban or headscarf

Should we focus on EYES or LIPS for this Spring Racing Carnival?

We expect eyes to be this years main focus paired with a nude glossy lip. But don’t let that stop you from rocking a bright pink, red or orange lip colour with strong liner and brows.

Be sure to visit the Beauty Bar for your touch ups after lunch on all race days.
