Royal Wedding Makeup: It was all about blush and brows

So it's all been revealed. Kate and Wills have tied the knot, we've seen the dress, the hair, the tiara. It was all there. Now, on to what I was most curious about - the makeup!

The Duchess of Cambridge, as she is now officially known, opted to do her own makeup on the day. She'd been taking one on one makeup lessons with U.K makeup artist Arabella Preston who was set to paint Miss Kate before she walked down the aisle.

But after several lessons with Ms. Preston, People Magazine reported that Kate was "comfortable and confident" in doing it herself, and preferred this after being unsatisfied with the job done on her makeup before her engagement photo shoot with Mario Testino. She's said to have wiped it off that day and reapplied it herself.

So beauties do you think she did a good job?

There were three things I noticed about Kate's look on her special day,
1. The tan
2. The eyebrows
3. The cheeks

England's newest Princess was looking spiffy, that's for sure, and could it have been because she was a little more bronze than usual? Maybe it was just the bridal glow, or a lovely sweep of bronzer across the nose and forehead.

Kate kept things simple with a light soft rose lip and added her pop of colour with a rosy blush swept generously over her cheeks. Her foundation was flawless (I'd love to know what product she used) As for the eyes, her deep dark peepers were accentuated with rich lashings of mascara and dark liner in the waterline and across the upper lash line. As for the lids, from what I could see she went with a soft greyish taupe shadow and her dark eyebrows were deepened and elongated, I'd say with a good wash of eyebrow gel and deep brown powder.

Personally, I think she looked nice, but the eyebrows were a bit much. They seem to get darker and darker the deeper she enters "The Firm" (what some like to call the royal family).

I would have loved to see Kate rock a nude natural eye and soft cheek with a darker lip, I think she has the complexion and hair to really pull a ruby red lippie off. But hey, it wasn't my wedding was it?! I have to say though, her sister Pippa Middleton was a knock-out wasn't she? Apparently the other Middleton Miss is single, not for long I'd say!

I'd love to hear what everyone else thought about Kate's look on her special day!
