Beauty Trends & Tips for the 2019 Spring Carnival with Elite Hair & Makeup Academy

We caught up with Justine Poniris, Owner and Head of the team at Elite Hair & Make Up Academy to talk about all things beauty and what is on trend this Spring Carnival Season.

We are very excited to have Elite back on board for another year in conjunction with Paintbox Cosmetics as the Beauty Bar Event Partners!

What are the biggest colours for spring/summer?
Bright colours are a MUST for 2019’s spring/summer season! Neutrals who? Bold and beautiful is in. Bright pinks, reds, corals and orange are back and are essential to stay on trend this season.

What will be the most popular make-up trend we will be seeing this year?
The “no makeup” look is this year’s biggest trend. Bronzed with a neutral lip, highlight and blush to accentuate features. Natural eyebrows and a dewy finish for the perfect glow is what we’ll be seeing over this Spring Racing Carnival.

What would be the ideal make up look for the races?
Perfect for almost any coloured dress, this is a timeless look that will make anyone shine this Spring Racing Carnival. We recommend a soft-bronzed look. A golden bronzer for the cheeks, followed by a warm toned soft highlight and rosy cheeks. For eyes, bronze shades for eye shadow.  We recommend a dewy finish and to complete the look with a bold red or coral toned lip.

What is the one product every girl must bring with her to the races?
The Spring Racing Carnival is definitely NOT known for perfect weather. We recommend something that helps your makeup STAY ON.  Bring a no coloured powder or setting spray dab when things are hot, rainy or everything in between.

What hair trends do we expect to see this year?
All things sleek and slicked back! Straight as a ruler hair tucked away behind the ears with either a headband or hairpiece is 2019’s biggest hair trend.

Who do you use for make-up look inspo?
The Brownlow is always the best indicator for upcoming makeup trends and inspiration for the upcoming Australian racing season!
