Sleek & Stylish

LoveCo Beauty Founder Mehrium loves recreating this look as it balances femininity and sophistication effortlessly, “It oozes style with a bold red lip that is complimented with dewy skin and subtle soft waves.” says Mehrium.

The LoveCo Beauty team suggest Indulging in a hair mask to minimise flyaways on the day and show off hair shiner than the horse’s. Recommending: YAROK HAIR, Feed Your Moisture Conditioning Masque.


It’s all about the pony’s

Whether low or high, wavy or sleek, this season you’ll be dressing up your pony’s in the finest of silks. We’re loving this trend of the low pony and silk tie, as it holds securely from dusk till dawn with the added bonus of looking like a modern Disney Beauty and the Beast’s Belle. (Only hoping you don’t have to kiss any beasts on the day).

Rock “The Jen”

You can google Jen for the last ten years at the spring racing carnival and you’ll see the same hair-do, soft highlighted waves. If your looking for a safe option, rock “The Jen”. We highly recommend a simple style such as this if you plan on wearing brights or geo prints. If you go bold in fashion, go simple in beauty - it’s all about balance.


Go red or go home

Every year a bright red dress will make it to the best dressed list. If you’re wanting to make a statement this season, it’s time to hunt for a bold rouge number that will make headlines. Accompany it with a soft natural lip colour or a “wow” red. We recommend using one of the Nars lip pencils for easy application throughout the day.

Metal Millinery

Futuristic millinery that incorporates gold or silver metals are fantastic as they will suit almost any outfit. It’s easy to get caught up in the impulse buys this time of year but if your wanting to make your headpiece last or an easy resell, buy something one tone and structured this piece, Elyse Knowles is wearing.
