Fit for a Princess

Posted on May 17, 2011 by terresa | 1 Comment

Just a few weeks ago, so much of the buzz about the royal wedding was about the make up of bride Kate Middleton. She look natural and radiant, the perfect bridal look. And best of all, she accomplished this look herself after a training session with a professional makeup artist.

We thought it would be fun to try to duplicate Kate's look, but go one step further...a beautiful, natural look done entirely with natural cosmetics. It was easy!

We selected Meghan (who specializes in order preparation and also spends some time working in the lab), because her skin tone is similar to Catherine Middleton's. We applied her Satin Matte Foundation in Beige 3, with an extra layer for medium coverage. Satin Matte Blush in Pink went on the apples of her cheeks and blended back towards her hair line.

For eyes, we applied Pearluster in Silk from lashes to brows. Then we applied Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner in Koan with a damp brush to her upper lash line. Koan also went under the eyes, but with a dry brush. Because Meghan's eyes are shaped a little differently than Kate's, we used a bit of Pearluster Zen to smudge the Koan on the lid, and blended it up over her entire lid. We used a bit of Satin Matte Shadow in Raven to fill in her brows.

To finish the look, Meghan slicked our new Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Sweet Pea on her lips. We think she looks like a princess!
