HOW TO ACE YOUR GLOW ON AND OFF THE TENNIS COURT

A model with tan skin, groomed brows and a pink lip wearing a white vest top and gold hoop earrings with her hair in a bun.

 

July means one thing: Wimbledon season! 

Whether you love to play tennis or you’re happiest watching, a glowing, fresh and long-lasting make up look is the ideal accompaniment (as well as strawberries and cream).  

And if you’re wondering what make up to wear on or off the tennis court, this is where we come in. “The Tenniscore trend has definitely made its way onto my TikTok For You Page recently,” says our Senior Social Media Executive, Chloe Cook. “Although it's mainly focused on fashion at the moment (think: preppy details and crisp white tailoring), I’m expecting beauty looks to do the rounds next.” 

“Tenniscore is coming for beauty, especially after seeing Zendaya-inspired looks from Challengers, and I predict we’ll see a lot of glazed doughnut skin and ponytail braids,” the social expert adds. 

Game. Set. Glow... 

SERVE UP YOUR GLOW  

In a handy twist-and-go format, the Thank You Farmer Sun Project Silky Calming Sun Stick stars a transparent formula with SPF 50 protection; ideal for making top ups easy when you’re spending the day outdoors. Designed to outlast sweat and humidity, it’s also water-resistant *and* enriched with soothing calamine and centella asiatica extract to lessen the look of redness.
