Today, after being contacted by M&S, I will be doing a Summer Essentials list for one of many summer occasions – a day at the races! A few summers ago I went to the races, although too young to enjoy everything the races are about, I still really enjoyed the day and I definitely learnt a few things about do’s and don’ts! First and foremost, to go with your classy dress, you need a Multiway Bra*. Nobody likes bra straps hanging out now do they?! Multiway bras are ideal, you can change over the straps to fit any style dress you have, and I think every girl needs one in their wardrobe! If that doesn’t take you fancy, there are many other bras here. Now for the heels, stilettos are a big no no. You will most probably sink in the grass and you’re even more likely to fall over flat on your bottom at least once, especially with the influence of alcohol! Wedges are a much safer bet. Then a clutch is required to complete the look! Now, to go with the gorgeous look, you need a summery make-up look! Firstly, a primer is essential to keep the make-up put throughout the most likely humid day! The Stila Eyeshadow Palette* is the perfect palette with some gorgeous bronzey shades which can be darkened up for a more dramatic smoky eye. And to finish the make-up look, I feel a red lip is totally necessary. Use a bold red lipstick and a Lip Liner* to keep the lippy on for an extra long time. My last essential is some fake tan, a gorgeous glow will definitely complete the look. Just be careful not to go patchy – get a spray tan if you’re unsure!
