Lulu’s Getting Race Day Ready!
Thursday 18, 2016

Team Lulu is off to the Brisbane Racing Club Girl’s Day Out Races this Saturday Feb 20, where you’ll find us amongst the pink of our VIP Midori Pamper Lounge.  Presenting the perfect opportunity to pop on the lipstick, dress up and feel fabulous, we’re pulling together a little race wear inspiration featuring our favourite race day looks and beauty.

Pastel & Playful

You may recall Jen debuting this seriously chic outfit for the 2014 Melbourne Cup Oaks Day Carnival, but this all pastel look is perfect for a race day with the girls.

Think delicious sorbet flavours; cotton candy pink, powder blue, peach, lemon and mint, for a sweet statement. Keep your look on trend by staying away from lacy fabrics, and instead opting for neoprene, satin and netting.


When it comes to your makeup, think girl next door glam! A rosy cheek created with Tata Harper Volumising Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Charming will create a feminine and youthful feel, complimented by a peachy pout using Gerard Cosmetics Ballet Slipper Hydra Matte Lipstick. Don’t forget to pop that iconic JHawk hip and flash those pearly whites in your snaps!

We’re taking a leaf out of the stylish Kate Waterhouse’s book and suiting up for the ladies races. If you consider yourself a classic minimalist, then this look is for you! In terms of colour, opt for classic ivory or a clean off white for a fresh and understated vibe. Emphasise clean lines with a tailored fit and streamlined structure. As this is a very conservative look, don’t be afraid to show a little skin, as Kate bares her shoulders in this flattering strapless bodice. Warning: people may envy your bold, girlboss attitude and in any case, own it!



You beauty game should reflect the bold style of this suit, so don’t be afraid to create some serious sculpting with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, highlighting the forehead, temples, nose bridge, chin and above the Cupid’s Bow. A strong brow is a must have for this look, and at Lulu HQ we love Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in the Dark Brown shade. Finish with a sheer nude lip like Sara Happ The Nude Slip or if you prefer the matte look, Lulu loves Jeffree Star I’m Nude.

I think we can all agree that it wouldn’t be a girly race day without a touch of floral! The gorgeous Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper looks ultra-fem in a lacy floral dress. Letting her floral print do the talking, Nicole pairs back her accessories, styling a roman crown on top of her classic updo.



Your beauty should mirror the femininity of the florals, so don’t be afraid to pop on a pink lippy like the fabulous Pink Holiday Love in Portofino. Emphasise the apples of your cheeks with a light dusting of golden highlighter like Gerard Cosmetics Brigette Star Powder. Finally, create some drama with a pair of flirty faux lashes, like Velour Lashes Lash In the City.
