How to recreate Kate's wedding beauty look
Saturday 30 April 2011
Just hours after the royal wedding, beauty brands have begun commenting on how to achieve princess Kate's hair and makeup.
"Kate's makeup was beautiful and elegant with a pop of color," Lucinda Barreto, makeup artist at Nars, says. "It's a look that can be worn for everyday or a special occasion."
To recreate Kate's wedding makeup look, Barreto recommends the following: for the face, use the brand's Copacabana Illuminator as a foundation for the skin, Laguna Bronzing Powder for a healthy glow, and Deep Throat Blush on your cheekbones.
Abyssinia Single Eyeshadow, applied all over the entire lid, brightens the eyes, enhanced by Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil, and Kalahari Duo Eyeshadow gives extra contours.
On the lips, Barreto advises Tonga Lipliner Pencil, Mitzi Lipstick, and Ophelia Lip Gloss.
All products are available on the Nars website.
Kate's hair was styled by James Pryce of the Richard Ward salon. "Catherine's bridal look is called the 'demi chignon' - an updo style which combines a classic bridal look with a regal, couture finish," it was explained in a statement. "The focus of the style was Catherine's unique and individual halo style tiara [by Cartier], set just back from the hairline, which determined the finished look."
For everyone who wants to have a go at their own soft waves, beauty blog Bella Sugar recommends a styling cream such as Aveda's Smooth Infustion Style-Prep Smoother ($24) before blow-drying with a round brush. Form a side part and curl your hair all around the head, using a wide-barrelled curing iron. Use a smoothing serum to finish off the look, and you're ready for any occasion.
