Racing season is now well and truly upon us. While you’re deliberating over whether to choose a fascinator or a hat, or a clutch over a strappy bag, it can be very easy to overlook your beauty look.
If you’ve left your race day beauty prep until the last moment, don’t fret. We’ve rounded up all the best celebrity race day beauty looks of 2019. Consider this your trackside beauty inspo cheatsheet.
For Derby Day this year, Anna opted for an ultra-glam beauty look featuring dramatic black eyeliner and an artfully sculpted topknot positioned on the crown of her head. Gorg!
When it comes to race day, Kate has completely got her game down pat and her Derby Day look was no exception. To jazz up an otherwise simple outfit, follow Kate’s lead and add a glitzy statement headband to your look.
If you’ve been looking for short hair styling inspo for your race day beauty look, this is it. Phoebe completely schooled us all in nailing the bob hair trend, pairing her subtle, short waved ‘do with a glamorous smoky eye look.
For an effortless, glowing race day beauty look, take your cues from Bec’s Derby Day beauty vibe and highlight not just your cheeks, but also underneath your brows, the inner corners of your eyes and the tip of your nose. This radiant skin and swept-back waves combo is a total winner.
Taking her inspo from Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf and Dynasty’s Alexis Colby, Georgia stepped out in this gorgeous race day beauty look featuring defined brows, lashings of black mascara and pinky-nude lips. Love it!
For Melbourne Cup Day, Georgia’s beauty look was centred around a gorgeous bejewelled headpiece by Lady of Leisure Millinery. To complement the colourful tones of the gemstones in her headpiece plus her vibrant pink dress, Georgia went for pretty pink eyeshadow and nails. If you’d like to try the colourful makeup trend, we recommend following Georgia’s example and choosing a hue that ties in with your outfit to bring your overall look together nicely.
Victoria fronted up to the Caulfield Cup looking like a total dream in a perfectly executed winged black eyeliner look and subtly stained red lips. If you’d like to copy Victoria’s eye look, check out our tips on achieving flawless winged eyeliner here.
Keeping all the focus on her eyes, Jessica stunned at the Caulfield Cup in an earthy-toned beauty look featuring what appears to be loads and loads of fluttery individual false lashes. Simple, yet so chic.
For Derby Day, Rebecca dialled up the glam to max, unveiling this gorgeous, ultra-femme beauty look. Showing off voluminous waves, peachy-highlighted cheeks and pink lips, Rebecca couldn’t have been prettier.
Satin-wrapped headbands have been a huge trend this year and don’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. Plus, they make the perfect race day hair accessory as seen on Shanina. As for makeup, the Australian model went for a subtle neutral look with matte pink lips.
