A Day At The Races!

I went to Ascot today - it was so much fun! I loved getting all dressed up in the middle of the day (although I did get some funny looks on my walk to the station - hopefully people didn't think I was returing from last night!)

I braved the cold in a Dorothy Perkins black shift dress - I customised it by swapping the plain back ribbon lace with a string of fake pearls from the John Lewis haberdashery, Dune shoes and fascinator from good old M&S:

Excuse the mess in my room please!

Close-up of the dress:

I kept my make-up natural as I wanted the hat to be centre stage:

I used:

Face -
No 7 Instant Radiance Conceler
17 Translucent Powder
Sleek Face Contour Kit

Eyes -
No 7 Eyeshadows from my pallette (gold and pale pink)
L'Oreal Volumous Mascara

Lips -
Clinique High Impact Lipstick in Red-y To Wear
