Bronzed beauty for your next race date

The only moment bronze trumps gold at the race track is on your eyelids. The universally-flattering shade brings out the best in every iris, where blues look brighter, green tones in hazel eyes are amplified and brown eyes display their complex composition. A complimentary colour to most lip looks, you can play up your pout depending on your ensemble.

Due to its neutral nature, bronze eyeshadow is a simple match to any fashion and millinery selection and won’t appear overly intense for a day at the races. But do not fear, bronze is far from basic, and with a bold eyeliner and luscious lashes, you are set to smoulder.

Get acquainted with your liquid liner in the lead up to your racing date; practising with our tutorial by Media Makeup, you can go from kitten to cat-eye with a flick of the wrist. A slick liquid formula makes for a low maintenance look with minimal smudge-potential, staying fresh from your first toast to the last lap.
