Durban July : Make-up and Hair Tips

Durban July : Make-up and Hair Tips

With this year’s themed race event being the Captain’s table, elegance and sophistication is a must. Dressing up for an evening event usually means red lipstick and black shadow, however elegance does not mean plastering on heavy makeup, below are some ideas and tips for achieving your best Durban July look.

 

Deciding on what make-up to do and how to wear your hair depends on the style of dress you are wearing and how bold your accessories are. Lighting at the event and how much time you have to get ready are also factors to consider. Instead of a smokey eye, try wearing metallic eyeliner in gold or silver, that sparkles subtly through your lashes. Pair this with a nude lip and luminous cheeks for perfect Durban July elegance.

Emerald metallic eyeliner

 

Red lipstick, either matt or glossy. This looks best when you down play your eyes. Also trending right now is dark purple/burgundy lips as seen on Cara Delevingne and Beyonce. Also keep cheeks neutral with this look and opt for highlighters on cheekbones instead.

False lashes. Immediately make the eyes stand out and are the perfect complement to a gorgeous evening dress. From natural length to full, choose the type that you are most comfortable with and look best on your eye shape.

Drama Queen cheeks. This look requires contouring the cheekbones and using high shine bronzers and blushers on the cheeks. Best teamed with glossing eyes and loads of mascara.

Cat–eye liner. A look that is here to stay. Dramatic black eyeliner extended across the top lash liner and angled into a flick beyond the lash line. Best to practice before the Durban July, draw a line with a black pencil liner and smudge softly, finish with a black liquid eyeliner on top. This technique allows for minimal mistakes.

Now for hair, the latest trend is long bohemian waves pinned to the side with a vintage hair accessory or worn in a middle path framing the face. Sleek ponytails are also trending on the red carpets this year as seen on Jennifer Lopez.
