When you’re going to a horse show, makeup is not a top priority. However, skin protection is important when you’re out in the elements, and it’s nice to have something light but protective on your skin. And just to be sure that your competition and victory gallop photos turn out frame-worthy, a bit of color on your cheeks and eyes, just to help your features show up in photos, is always nice too. But it has to be doable at 5 a.m., healthy for the skin, and low to no maintenance throughout the day.
We visited Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics in New York, Ny., to get a professional how-to for a natural-looking, sun-blocking look for horseback riders and outdoor athletes.
