There’s nothing more glamorous than an outdoor summer celebration, and with the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo taking place this week, now’s the time to plan ahead so that no make-up meltdown dampens your fun in the sun.


This premier polo and social event has become synonymous with elegant thoroughbreds, dashing players, flowing French champagne and Africa’s A-listers. It’s the perfect place to showcase summer’s premier fashion, beauty and make-up trends. 


This fusion of chic and chukkas takes place at Val de Vie estate, which celebrates local terroir and the history of France. So it’s appropriate that Guerlain, the iconic French cosmetics and skincare brand, will be supporting the event as the official beauty sponsor to ensure that models and VIPs look their best.


You too can keep cool and pretty as the sun sizzles and the stakes soar, with a few tips from beauty  and hair experts:

  • Primer mattifies your make-up and makes it last longer;
  • Guerlain’s Terracotta bronzing powder creates a natural, sun-kissed look.  Hydrating ingredients ensure seamless application and refreshing moisture; 
  • Super-stay mascara, such as  Guerlain’s recently-launched La Petit Robe Noir Mascara, offers all-day wearability; 
  • GDH Heat Protect Spray  provides an invisible barrier against heat damage on damp or dry hair. 
  • Total Volume Foam An easy-use mousse that creates soft but lasting volume and fullness in all hair typesleaves.


With these hints you can meet the high life head-on and ensure that a day watching the sport of kings isn’t ruined by a messy makeup situation!


And of course the celebration’s official broadcast partner, E! Entertainment Africa, will be there to capture all the glitz and glamour of the red carpet. With a little help from Guerlain and ghd, you can ensure you’re camera-ready and looking your gorgeous best.
