Spring racing season is here. Somewhere between the millinery and clutch bag emergency kit (read; Hollywood tape, safety pins and gel heel cushions), makeup and hair is the next thing to consider. To save time, we've bookmarked the most amazing Emmy beauty looks – just take your pick.
SOFIA VERGARA'S ALL DAY NUDE
For a polished look that won't demand touch ups all day, look to Sophia Vergara's dramatic, but easy, approach. Creamy skin with a burgundy pout was ladylike while being low maintenance. Go for a long-lasting pigment so you're not touching up between champagne sips on Oaks Day.
EMILY RATAJKOWSKI'S SAPPHIRE SMOKEY EYE
Emily Rata's head-turning jewel-toned eye was the stand out on the red carpet, and is the perfect way to glam up a simple ensemble. Think drama, without the disco. Opt for matte shadow (as opposed to glittery shades) and go all in, or not at all - a flimsy line around the eye, we do not want. Keep it modern with a nude lip and sleek hair.
Sarah Hyland's flawless hair twist
When you're heading to a long day at the races, a simple, chic up-do is the easiest way to keep your hair looking tidy, trim and off your face – while also keeping your style intact. Modern Family starlet Sarah Hyland's flawless hair twist is perfectly low-maintenance, high impact. Blow dry hair as sleek and straight as possible, and ensure you've injected good oils into the strands to keep it shiny and healthy looking.
PRYANKA CHOPORA'S DARING RED LIP
Steal the spotlight this spring racing season with a red lip, like Quantico's Pryanka Chopora. Follow suit by ditching the eyeshadow and heavy liner. Instead, keep the focus on the lips by applying a simple coat of mascara and some tinted brow gel. The result: classic chic.
JULIANNE HOUGH'S SEXY SLEEK DO
Take a break from tousled waves this racing season, and opt for slicked back hair instead like Julianne Hough. This chic wet look suits all hair types and will be sure to give you a modern edge. A fresh casual style, that won't take hours to create and lasts the racing distance. But, don't actually use water (your hair will eventually dry naturally, obviously) or oil (it can look dirty, not wet); opt for a conditioning treatment instead. It'll keep your hair healthy, and give you that 'just went for a quick dip before this' look.
