This week we are crushing on not one but two pretty ladies - stunning sisters, Jess and Ashley Hart! Why now, you may ask? Well, as one of the faces of Myer women's fashion, Jess Hart is a pro when it comes to looking good for the races (Myer are the big wigs of Fashions on the Field after all!), and as for her sis? Ash is one of the faces of Swisse, the official Wellness Partner of The Melbourne Cup Carnival. But as bangin' models their style and natural beauty is pretty much perfect 24/7, more than enough reason to take inspiration from them alone - even without the amazing raceday regalia! Here's how...
Stunning Jess hit the big time after entering and winning the Dolly model search competition, just like fellow Victoria's Secret alum Miranda Kerr! Since then Jess has been shot for the renowned Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, been a member of The City cast, alongside bb fave Whitney Port, and graced the cover of Vogue Australia. What a busy girl! She also has a very special man in her life, just like we all do here at bb - a teacup Yorkshire Terrier called Floyd! Sure, he's no Thompson, but he is still super cute!

As one of the faces of women's fashion for Myer, Jess is also known for her trend setting styles. We love this red races look as rocked by Jess at Oaks day in 2011.
Jess lets her hat do all the talking whilst keeping her makeup fresh and light - a great idea for a day event like the races. To copy her look, get your skin in order first. Try a bb cream for a light weight yet medium coverage base. Not only are bb creams hydrating on the skin, they often also contain an SPF, which is an essential for day events. You can also mix in a little liquid illuminator for an even glowier finish!
Another top tip for keeping your base light, fresh and dewy all day long is to try mixing a little high quality eye cream in with your concealer - no caking or creasing here! We love the Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Eye Cream which is packed with peptides, natural plant oils and humectants - all the things that deter dark circles and puffiness whilst adding a hit of hydration, which will help your delicate eye area stay moisturised and less likey to look dry and creasey. Winner!
Finally, a teeny tiny touch of red toned gloss on the lips ties Jess' look together. Notice she has gone for a sheer red, rather than a highly pigmented lippy, so as not to be too matchy-matchy? Try the e.l.f Essential Hypershine Gloss in in Vixen for a similar look - and don't forget to pack it in your clutch for touch ups either!
Next onto little sis, Ashley! Ash knows a thing or two about keeping healthy and looking good, thanks to her role as Swisse ambassador. A big fan of yoga and running to stay toned and fit, Ash also credits vitamins, drinking plenty of water and remembering to always take off her makeup for her great skin.
Ash looked pretty in rosey pastel tones at last years Melbourne Cup. Want to look like her? Here's how...
Again, this Hart sister proves that great skin is always in style and is the key to a polished and pretty beauty look, no matter what other beauty trends you opt for. Ash is apparently a lover of beauty oils and not only uses it on her skin (which is why it looks so plump and healthy) but also rubs it into the ends of her hair for extra nourishment. We love Organic Rosehip Skincare 100% Pure Rosehip Seed Oil which can be used on skin, hair and even to rub into cuticles to make them soft and healthy. Talk about a multi-tasker!
If you prefer a foundation over a bb cream, but still want to achieve a light and fresh look, try one that is natural looking on skin. We love Prestige's Skin Nude Foundation, which offers a medium coverage and contains ginseng, aloe and vitamin E to energise, hydrate and protect the skin (lots of the hard working ingredients also present in bb creams) The light texture will help you get a natural look like Ash.
Ash finishes her look with a natural tint on her lips. Try the Yes to Carrots Lip Tints in either Natural Smile or Sunset Pink (depending on your natural lip colour) for a similar look. They not only add a dose of colour but also soothe, condition, and moisturise your lips. Plus, they are 95% organic, and are paraben and carmine free. We think Ash would be a big fan!
Do you love the Hart girls as much as us? Are you also a fan of natural beauty looks? Which outfit would you prefer to wear? Remember to stop by our Metro Style Crew teams if you are heading to the races to get some beauty freebies for yourself! - Lauren
