Natasha Hastings wisdom: Wear your war paint.
Hastings is known for her style both on and off the track. Even when competing, she wears jewellery, statement hairstyles and a full face of makeup – including red lipstick.
In the spoken-word poem that’s recited in Hastings’ Under Armour video campaign, poet Dominique Christina calls it her “red lipstick war paint,” a turn of phrase that gave Hastings chills the first time she heard it. “If I’m going to go out there, I need to feel good and feel empowered,” she says. “It’s all about look good, feel good and go out there and do good… in whatever it is that you do.”
P.S. She also swears by Sweat Cosmetics Mineral Foundation (not yet available in Canada). “I’m in the sun all the time,” she says. “The foundation has SPF in it, so that’s great for protecting my skin. Brown girls need SPF, too.”
