Derby Day is this Saturday and we’ve picked our favourite look that will help you complete your outfit for the big day!

We’ve picked the beauty look by Mecca from Melbourne Spring Fashion Week that is a soft, pared back. The lash line and brows are the focal point, paired with flushed pink cheeks and lightly stained lips for a modern look, suitable for all black or white (or both) ensembles on Derby Day.


To create the look, you can follow these easy steps.

Step 1

Use NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Alhambra all over your eyelids and inner corner to give a soft and gentle wash of colour with a subtle sheen. Add definition with NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Charade in your crease to enhance your natural eyeshape withMecca Cosmetica Eye Sculpting Brush.


Step 2

To create a kitten flick, use the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black from the middle of the eye to the outer edge with a little flick on the end to open up the eyes. Use Mecca Comsetica False Lashes in Enhancing to give the eye even more of a lift.


Step 3

To give the cheeks a pretty in pink glow, use NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Adoration on the apples of the cheeks. Follow up with Hourglass Strobe Lighting Powder in Incandescent Light to add that cheekbone highlight.


Step 4 

To compete the look add a fresh peachy-pink glossy lipstick. Chantecaille Lip Chic in Daphne is the perfect shade.
