The Worst Mistakes You Can Make When Going to the Races.

1. Wearing a dress that is too short. Ladies do not show their undies (or lack of in some cases).

Image

2.  Showing too much cleavage –  you don’t want to look like a hooker.

Image

3.  Wearing a hat that is out of proportion with your body. A large one will make you look like a mushroom.

Image

4.  Wearing every piece of jewellery that you own, often ‘less is more’.

Image

5.  Shoes.  Hmmmm.  Sky high numbers that you have never worn should never be trialled at the races. Take band-aides and ballet flats as back up.

Image

6.Drinking on an empty stomach.

Image

7.  Drinking too much too soon and missing the big race.

8.  Not taking panadol in your handbag.  Alcohol = Headache.

Image

9.  Chewed nails.  Fork out for a manicure.

Image

10. Straggly hair. Take the time to make it neat and presentable.

Image

11.  Wearing too much make up.

Image

12.  Not wearing enough make up.

Image

13.  Overdoing the fake tan. Hello little Oompa Loompa!

Image

14.  Losing your handbag.

15.  Hmmmm.  Maybe you can help by posting some mistakes commonly made at the races…….

6 Tips on how to avoid looking like a drag queen when you’re over 40.

1.  Ease up on the eyeliner.  Your eyes may have been perfect in your 20’s but do you really want to accentuate your newly formed ‘crow’s feet’.

Image

2.  Avoid overly stylised hair – you’re not on stage.

Image

3.  Don’t over dose on colours – you could look like rainbow vomit.

Image

4.  Watch out for too much bling, sometimes less is more.

Image

5.  Wear age-appropriate clothes – enough said.

Image

6.  Avoid very dark lipstick….and for that matter, lip liner as well.

And remember, now that you are older it is a good idea to soften your features with subtle make-up and hair rather than outline our age!
