The Royal Ascot Beauty Bible

Whether you’re playing it safe or plan on going all out this Royal Ascot, these beauty looks are sure to have you looking the part from head to toe…

If you’ve hunted down the perfect outfit, now it’s time to think about the little details that’ll pull your whole look together. From great long-wear lipsticks and streak-free tanners to tips on matching your makeup with your millinery masterpiece, we’ve got you covered.

The Prep

The prospect of bare limbs may horrify you and, considering our temperamental British weather, it's wise to take things into your own hands with a touch of faux-glow.

Massage a good body scrub into dry skin before heading into the shower to smooth skin and prevent patchy fake tan. We're partial to a gradual tanner thanks to its more forgiving payoff and ability to build over a week or so in advance. 

The night before, pop on a revitalising face mask, like these fancy foil masks from Estée Lauder that are drenched in a concentrated blend of their best-selling Advanced Night Repair formula. 

Neom Great Day Body Scrub, £34; Crème De La Mer The Face and Body Gradual Tan, £70; Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask, £16.

Book yourself in for a treatment at one of our fab in-store services - from blow-dries at Radio and Regis hair salons to Nails inc nail bars and facials at Clarins Skin Spa, you'll be pimped and primed to perfection ready for the big day. 

The Looks

As the official Millinery Sponsor of Royal Ascot, we thought it was fitting to suggest beauty looks to compliment a number of different hat styles you may be sporting.
