13Gripping a compact mirror in her hand, perched on the folding chair in the aisle of the barn, an amateur competitor applies lipstick as grooms and show horses bustled by. Squinting into the mirror once more, she reaches out and grabs the arm of one of her younger barn mates. “Is this too much? Or not enough?” she asks, tilting her face up to the dim light. “I always use a bright lipstick when I show,” answers the teen, glancing over her shoulder, wishing desperately for another amateur to come along to chime in with advice.

The reality is that when it comes to makeup for the show pen, the rules are different for youth, amateur, and select competitors. You won’t see it listed in the rulebook, but the truth is that Select competitors must tread a thin line between too much and not enough when it comes to horse show makeup application. Luckily, a specialized group of makeup artists and experts have begun to combine their love of glamour with horse shows to offer services for today’s exhibitors, and they’re here to share how to create a flawless face that’s age-appropriate but still eye catching for the show pen.
