A giant handbag might be your go-to for the nine-to-five. But at the races, it’s all about being “ladylike”. And ladies simple do not schlep around gigantic carry-alls, that is what their butlers are for (or so I have been told).

And if you, like me, sadly lack any sort of personal minion to do your schlepping for you, then might I suggest just downsizing your essentials for the day just a tad, so they fit into a more lady-like clutch or shoulder bag?

Really all you need for a day trackside is, well, all of these multi-tasking beauties!

1 – Tinted moisturiser with SPF.

Talk about your multitasking product! You can touch up your base, give your skin a moisture hit, and double up on your sun protection with a single tube!

2 – Concealer stick

To hide any less-than-lady-like imperfections (we all have them).

3 – Moisture boosting lip lacquer or gloss

Again, why carry a lip balm AND a lipstick, when there are so many fab (and highly pigmented) lip lacquers on the market these days that do the job of both.

4 – A hair elastic or two

Just in case your ‘do turns into a don’t during the day! Maybe chuck in some bobby pins as well.

5 – Kohl eyeliner

The perfect way to take your look from day too night, although perhaps steer away from attempting anything too bold after your third glass of champagne.

6 – A nude shimmer shadow

This is perfect for reviving the colour on your lids, and also to double as a highlighter to give your skin an extra pop towards the end of a long day.

7 – Blister patches

Don’t forget to include your COMPEED® Blister Patches. Because “comfy” shoes never go with your dress, and you know you are going to need them!

If you haven’t tried COMPEED® before, visit COMPEED.COM.AU to get a free COMPEED® blister patch sample (while supplies last)!
