Kate Waterhouse's top race day beauty tips
Kate Waterhouse, Sally Hansen Spring Racing Fashion Authority, is pretty much racing royalty. Her mum, Gai Waterhouse, is a thoroughbred trainer and her grandfather is racing legend Tommy Smith. So it’s safe to say Kate’s watched more horse races and dressed up for more Spring Carnivals than any of us combined.
That’s why it made complete and utter sense to ask the stunner for her race day beauty tips and advice. Here’s what she said…
beautyheaven: What are your three essential beauty tips for race day?
Kate Waterhouse: Attention to detail is key, so make sure you have a beautiful manicure. Don’t overload on your fake tan, and keep your look youthful and fresh with dewy skin and glossed lips.
bh: How do you go about coordinating your nails with your outfit? Should they contrast or be matchy-matchy?
KW: To make an impact, opt for a bold nail colour and match it back with your outfit. But when in doubt, opt for a nude as you can never go wrong!
bh recommends: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Spring Racing in Sheer Ecstasy.
bh: What are the biggest colour trends for this year’s races?
KW: White on white is going to be a big trend for Derby Day and I’m sure we are going to see plenty of pastels in this Spring Carnival!
bh: How can you incorporate these colour trends if you don’t want to purchase a new outfit?
KW: You can always wear that classic LBD that’s already in your wardrobe and incorporate colours through accessories and nail polish.
