Melbourne Cup Is Here, and Despite the Rain, Everyone Wore Winged Eyeliner

Updated 05/01/19

The weather might be wild, but the Melbourne Cup racing carnival must go on. Unafraid of a little precipitation, Australia's celebrity and influencer set are currently dressed to the nines, braving the elements, and fearlessly 'gramming their looks like it's nobodies business. Hair is mostly natural and textured, with a mix of subtle headbands (Nat Kelley, we're looking at you), to epic straw hats, a la Elyse Knowles. 

Our favourite part though? Not even a torrential downpour could stop everyone from going heavy on the lashes and liner. Talk about committed to the cause. For all of our top Melbourne Cup day hair and makeup looks, keep scrolling.
