Kentucky Derby Fashion Beauty 2014

Be prepared for the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks with a few key products to keep your looks fresh and flawless!

You’re main objective will be to keep your look from fading or melting while attending the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby. The first thing that you will want to do is to make sure to wear sunscreen. Getting a sunburn doesn’t look good no matter how great your hair and makeup is. Try L’Oreal Advanced Suncare Sunscreen. It not only has a lot of great antioxidants to protect you from the sun, it doesn’t streak or get chalky and actually helps to hydrate your skin. Try their regular version or their BB version that has a slight tint to it.

Also, you will also definitely want to wear a primer under your makeup to keep makeup from melting into skin and looking blurry and messy in the heat. Try L’Oreal Miracle Blur, which keeps makeup in place and helps prevent your makeup from melting and seeping into your skin or wrinkles. After, you have finished applying your makeup; try a setting spray to keep your makeup in place and fresh all day long. Try Urban Decay Setting Spray, or for a less expensive option try NYX Long Lasting Makeup Setting. It is also mattifying which will help with shine control on a hot day.

In your purse, make sure you carry two essential items; blotting papers to take away any shine from sweat or heat and for a refreshing pick me up a little facial spritz. Try Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets which will help take away shine and it’s a much better option than piling on cakey power to take away sine. For a refreshing facial spritz try out If you need a little pick me up try a travel size Evian Facial Spray or Jurilique Rose Water Balancing Spray to help freshen you up.

For your hair, you are going to want to fight any frizz, try out L’Oreal’s Sleek It Frizz Vanisher Cream or Fekkai Advanced Coiff Perfecteur Anti-Frizz Silkening Creme to keep hair from getting out of control with frizz whether you have straight or curly hair.

With these products in your arsenal, your look will stay flawless for a full day of racing and socializing at the 2014 Kentucky Derby!
