Hey Readers!
If you're Australian, you should know that on the 6th November was the annual Melbourne Cup!
For those of you who aren't Australian or just don't know what it is, it is an annual thoroughbred horse racing event for the 'Melbourne Cup' trophy. Who would've thought? Haha.

If you're a girl, you probably see it as a day to get dressed up! 
Others may see it as a day to indulge in copious amounts of alcohol whilst betting on what could be the winning horse.

Unfortunately, I could not go to Melbourne for it. Instead  I celebrated it in my home city, Brisbane, at the Doomben Racecourse. I also got to spend the day with one of my amazing best friends, Hayley :) I also did her make up for it!

So here I am with a blog post to show you my outfit for the 2012 Melbourne Cup! I decided to go a little bit out of my comfort zone and experiment with colour! Outfit details will be listed below.


Meet my pretty friend, Hayley! This is the make up I did on her :)
I made sure I highlighted the inner corner with the same aqua used in her accessories. 
The orange lip was to match her nail polish and bracelet.
I made sure I did a neutral look over the lids, just to make the the inner corner pop!

My outfit details:
Dress - Dissh
Shoes - Famous Footwear
Necklace - Colette by Colette Hayman
Headband - Cosmetics Plus
Clutch - Forever New (on the tag it said it was a pencil case, ha!)
Hair and make up done by me

Thank you for reading!
