Having your makeup done professionally, such as by the M.A.C team at Ballantynes, whose work is featured, helps add a ‘wow’ factor to any special event.

If you’re doing your makeup yourself, here are some tips to help achieve a stunning look. A must-have for Cup and Show day is M.A.C Fix + Stay Over 16hr Setting Spray to finish your look.

Cleanse your face and apply an SPF moisturiser. Make sure you are in a
well-lit space for the rest of the routine.
Start with yor preferred primer, or try M.A.C Hyper Real Balm to protect the skin barrier.

Whether you’re going for a bold eye look, or prefer to rock neutral eye makeup, try M.A.C Connect in Colour Eye Shadow Palette for all your favourite neutrals and pops of colour. One way to avoid fallout, is applying your eye makeup before your foundation.

Apply your preferred foundation with a sponge, as this will ensure a flawless blend. Make sure you blend your foundation evenly on your face, neck and décolletage, being careful not to leave a visible foundation line. Try M.A.C Studio Fix as it’s a great medium-full coverage foundation, fitting for all seasons and it is buildable. Apply concealer if needed. Set with a translucent powder.

Use a soft fluffy brush to apply your preferred blush over cheekbones, and temples. Use a highlighter, such as M.A.C Extra Dimension Skinfinish Gleamscape on your brow bone. Highlighter on the corner of your eyes will make them look brighter.

If you love glow, use your favourite pressed or cream bronzer for a radiant, dewy look, and to give your skin dimension. Apply on the sides of your forehead, down your cheekbones, and on the bottom edges of your chin.
A well-bronzed face will draw people’s attention to the centre of your face and make its edges appear sharper.

The night before the event, apply a nourishing lip balm, such as Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Balm. Apply a lip liner, and top with your favourite lippy.
Leave for a matte look, or add lip gloss for a luscious shine.
