Spring Racing Looks


It's finally September and all the other lovely Melbourne ladies know what that means! Spring Racing Season! 

Spring Racing Season is probably one of my favourite times of the year shopping wise! Every store is filled with gorgeous dresses and shoes perfect for a day at the races, not to mention the breath-taking accessories! (I'm talking hats here, ladies!)

With that in mind, I've created two different looks using the same basic cosmetics! I just wanted to show you how versatile products can be when you put them to good use!

The Products:



Arbonne Primer




Arbonne Cosmetics Perfecting Liquid Foundation in Buff




Arbonne Cosmetics Bronzer




Arbonne Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black



Arbonne Cosmetics Lipstick in Vintage Rouge




Arbonne Cosmetics Lip Polish in Posh

And now for the looks I've created... 



Simple and Elegant



For the simple look, I've started off with a clear base using the primer and foundation. I've contoured a little with the bronzer but kept it very subtle. I've then added a thin line on the upper lash line and kept my eyelashes natural as mine are already long and darker. I have kept my lower lash line bare to create a more natural look.
I added a light layer of Vintage Rouge to my lips and then topped it off with the lip polish!

Bold and Daring


For my bolder look, I've again started off with the primer and foundation for an even and flawless base! I've added a lot of the bronzer to give my cheeks some colour, while also contouring around my nose and my eyes.
I've then added a thick line of eyeliner on my upper lash line, this time with a heavy winged look. Again I've left my lashes bare as the bold eyes were enough to make my eyes really pop!
To finish the look off I've gone for a stronger lip, using two layers of the colour and only a very light layer of lip polish to add shine. (The colour is a lot bolder in real life but somehow would not photograph for me!)

So those are my two Spring Racing looks created with the same products! Which look do you prefer?


These products were kindly provided for my consideration. :)

  1. I love racing season! The last time, though, we got rained out lol!

    I like both looks but think it would have to depend on the dress to go with it. :)

    1. Oh no! Damn that rain :P
      And thank you! I don't think the second one would go too well with a white frilly number, but the first one might :P hehe
