Just like that!
I admit it… I slept in NOT my choice my body had other ideas (Friday night we did a POP-Up shop for my business and it was a long exhausting day) so I did not watch the wedding of the year while it was happening! However, I did watch and still am devouring every crumb I can get of it on TV and online.
Since I am in the business of beauty I couldn’t let this wedding pass without sharing my thoughts on this bride!
I loved her look,style and wedding day choices. I thought her makeup was effortless and not trying too much nor over the top glam.
This is the kind of bridal makeup I do on my clients. Softly defined and naturally gorgeous!
Luminous skin,a nude pink lipstick,chocolate brown eye shadow,peachy pink soft cheeks and a defined brow all worked to make her look simply beautiful! The icing on her pretty face? Pretty freckles peeking through.
Her face was prepped months ahead to a few facials and contouring facials a technique by the famous esthetician Nichola Joss who works across the pond in London and in NYC. She recommends a bride prepare her skin for the big day months ahead and so do I.
In case you didn’t know it the Duchess likes to shop a variety of places as well as Whole Foods and is an avid foodie and very health conscious. She’s even got the Prince doing green drinks with her!
Rumor had it she would do her own makeup. Well, she did not. She had a little help by a makeup artist Daniel Martin.
Her hair was styled by Serge Normant ala NYC.Stylist to SJP and Julia Roberts to name a few of his VIP and celebrity clientele. I’ve always wanted to get my haircut or styled by him back home!
Royals have been gifted Essie nail lacquer and have worn that brand in the past. Not sure if Essie’s Ballet Slippers was on her well manicured nails.
Stylists predicted that Meghan would choose a sparkly heavy beaded wedding gown by certain designers ala a Disney Princess. They were wrong! She chose the beauty of Givenchy by a designer from England. I thought her gown was…simple and elegant.
This very modern bride and ceremony was amazing. Down to those adorable boys and flower girls!
I am so happy for Prince Harry! Aren’t you?
The American girl who became a Duchess… 22 YEARS after she posed pretty with a friend in front of Buckingham Palace sitting on the fence. A fairy tale indeed!
What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear from you!
