WHAT TO AC­TU­ALLY

PACK IN YOUR HAND­BAG

ELLE (Australia) - - The Elle Manual Spring Racing -

Race-day hand­bags are no­to­ri­ously tiny, so you need to be se­lec­tive about the prod­ucts you take. Jus­tine Cullen, ELLE’S edi­tor-in-chief, Myer Fash­ions On The Field judge and sea­soned race­goer, knows this all too well. She shares her must-haves...

NUMB­ING CREAM

I have the most pa­thetic low-stamina feet ever, so I carry Emla numb­ing cream in my bag to re­lieve aching feet by Race 6.

EX­TRA BOBBY PINS

I al­ways seem to leave mine scat­tered be­hind me like Hansel with the bread­crumbs.

LIP BALM

Lano­lips lip balm is a must. I don’t wear lip­stick, but when you’re do­ing this much eat­ing, drink­ing and talk­ing, your lips need con­stant TLC.

SKIN PERFECTOR

M.A.C’S BB com­pact en­ables max­i­mum touch-ups with min­i­mal bath­room-mir­ror queu­ing (and has sun pro­tec­tion to boot).

SUN­GLASSES

They need to be su­per thin and light so they don’t leave pesky nose marks once re­moved and can eas­ily slot into my clutch post-sun­light.
