The Royal Wedding!!

I am an American girl through and through but I've got Royal Wedding Fever!! I stayed up until 3:30 a.m. and was glued to the TV. I was completely star struck when I saw Catherine's wedding dress. That dress is going to influence wedding dresses for years to come! Her veil was a beautiful finishing touch, and the sheerness of the lace let you really see her face clearly.

It was surprising to hear that Catherine Middleton did her own makeup, but reportedly only after receiving lessons from a makeup artist. After some research, I have found that her make-up consisted of a soft brown smokey eye, with pink lips and cheeks. She had a classic nude manicure to polish off the look.

Here is how to get Catherine's look:

Step 1-Use a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer all over as a base. Her skin is always glowing!
Step 2-Wash a neutral base over the whole eyelid, then use a slightly darker brown shade in the socket and slightly above.
Step 3- Line around the eyes with a brown/black eyeliner, take it the whole way around the eye and blend the eyeliner in using the end of a Q-tip. Finish with a coat of mascara.
Step 4- Add a bright pink blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend it up towards your hairline.
Step 5- Brush over your brows with a dark brown eyebrow gel to make them look more defined.
Step 6- Finish the look with a swipe of nudey-pink gloss to transform yourself into a pretty princess!

Hope you enjoyed the wedding too!
