Over 2 billion people watched the Royal Wedding this morning – as Kate Middleton married Prince William – in London, England.
Kate Middleton – now the new Duchess of Cambridge – looked like a true princess as she walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey during her fairy-tale wedding.
Apparently, when it came to her makeup – Kate wanted to keep things simple – so simple that she opted to do it herself!! Wedding planner Mark Niemierko said that Middleton had taken a series of private lessons with London makeup artists Arabella Preston in preparation for the big day. And, Kate couldn’t have done a better job! Her look was natural, elegant, sophisticated and fresh – she was glowing and looked absolutely beautiful!
Kate Middleton’s half up/half down hairstyle and flawless makeup matched her Alexander McQueen bridal gown perfectly.
Kate opted for a pink/grey colour palette which offered her a sophisticated appearance. Pink is the perfect shade for brides because it instantly brightens the face, making it look fresh and flawless. She paired her pink blush and neutral flesh-toned lipstick with a subtle grey smokey eye, which really made her eye’s pop and added depth to the overall look.
What do you think of Kate’s Hair & Makeup?
I hope you have a happi day! And, don’t forget to Wake.up & Make.up!

The ‘Enviro Cut’ is a new cutting technique designed to save time, energy and money.
Frank Tripodi, Artistic Director at Phases Hair Studio in Toronto and Wella Professional educator, understands his clients don’t have the time to spend all afternoon in the salon to get their hair looking great. So, to keep up with their on-the-go lifestyles, Frank has launched a service that promises to save time and money, as well as water and electricity.
“By the time you finish your latte I’ve already finished cutting your hair” says Frank, noting the service can cut up to 30 minutes of your time at the salon and 20% off the price.
The Enviro Cut is done on dry hair, eliminating the time and resources needed to wash and blow-dry. Frank says the hair is lightly misted with a leave-in conditioner, to add moisture during the service, but there is no need for the hair to be wet or even damp. He suggests clients arrive at the salon with clean and touchable hair to receive this service. (more…)
