Melbourne Cup
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.
