We love empowering stories, and if you do too, here’s something that’ll make your day. Bianca Bustamante — the first female driver to represent McLaren in the racing scene — has landed a major partnership with beloved beauty brand Anastasia Beverly Hills.
Bianca Bustamante: nationality, age, and more
Professional racing driver Bianca Bustamante was born and raised in the Philippines. At 18 years old, she’s shaking up the racing scene with her skills. She made her Macau Grand Prix debut last weekend and fearlessly competed, but she was not able to finish in the last race for reasons outside of her control.
Bianca Bustamante on racing and makeup
Bianca dreams of showing the world that Asian drivers can compete on the global stage and that women can rise to the top in a male-dominated sport.
In an interview, she shared that makeup has been a part of her pre-race routine, and this fuels her confidence when she’s out on the track. Some of her favourite ABH products include the brand’s Brow Freeze, foundation, and bronze contour.
We’re rooting for this girl, and we can’t wait to see more of what this impressive girl has in store.
We also hope that Bianca’s achievements in this field will open up the possibilities for more sponsors from the beauty industry. Recent data shows that there’s a growing number of female viewers in the Formula 1 and NASCAR races, so it’s definitely a great way to showcase the strengths of a beauty brand in a physically challenging environment.
