We’re in season for Spring Racing!
LCNZ is your one-stop destination for all things Spring Racing prep. To help you giddy-up for the season, we spoke to a few LCNZ team members to ask them their top Race Day tips.
“Lippy or lip-plumper is a definite for me. A compact mirror, band-aids, gum and blotting paper to avoid the T-Zone shine.” – Kaitlyn
“I always love a mini hairspray especially, if you do your hair in curls. Also a portable phone charger - having a flat phone on a day out is the worst!” - Bec
Trading stilettos for wedges
“All power to women who can pull off stilettos when walking across the grass. For me, I’m all about snagging a cute pair of wedges when I’m trackside. Maximum comfort, minimal opportunity for me to take a tumble. A good thing for everyone involved!” – Lauren
Flawless makeup starts with great skin
“It’s amazing how great skin makes a HUGE difference to makeup application and longevity. It’s all in the prep. A fresh, flawless complexion is about exfoliating, hydrating and taking care of your skin. At LCA we have a range of skin treatments available. Together, we can tailor a skin treatment plan that will unveil fresh, glowing skin with great texture and tone.” - Cassie
Knowing your race day fashion themes
“Make sure you’ve scrubbed up on the different race day fashion themes. Derby Day is traditionally monochrome as the dress code is strictly black, white, both black and white, and men can wear tailored greys. Melbourne Cup – the race that stops the nation, is the biggest day of New Zealand’s Spring Racing calendar and is all about bright, bold pops of colour and standout headwear. Oaks Day otherwise known as Ladies Day, is all about spring colours and femininity — think pastels, floral and lace.” – Melissa
Hair free, care free.
“There can be a lot of prep involved before the races. I won’t make shaving or waxing one of them. I love laser hair removal because you can be ready at a moment’s notice.” - Rachel
Show off your best features
“Since cosmetic injectables can take up to two weeks, plan your appointment carefully to ensure maximum results when you want them the most. Many of our clients opt for a combination of anti-ageing and dermal filler injections to create volume as well as relax fine lines and wrinkles. Some of our most popular combos include, relaxing crow’s feet and marionette lines (vertical lines from mouth corner to chin) and adding volume to lips and the mid cheek area. Book in for a complimentary, no obligation consultation with our medical team of Registered Doctors and Nurses.” - Emily
