FLAWLESS, SIMPLE, CLASSY. Those are the three words that come to mind when I think of Kate Middleton. The new duchess of Cambridge walked down the aisle this morning at Westminster abbey wearing McQueen. I die for Kate’s look on her wedding day! I don’t think there is a person out there who could say she didn’t look stunning.
When I heard that Kate was doing her own makeup, I had mixed thoughts. I get it, you’re a “commoner”, not a diva, but it is your WEDDING DAY (not to mention the ceremony of the century!). These pictures are going to go down in history and are being viewed by people all over the world. You sure you don’t want help getting that perfect glow for your wedding pics? Then again, maybe she is really good at doing makeup? Maybe she wants to look back on the day of her wedding and think how she had the option of any makeup artist in the world and chose to just be herself.
I feel like a lot of people don’t like when others touch their face. Personally, I love getting my makeup done. Although I am the makeup artist with my friends and enjoy doing my own makeup normally, it’s always fun to have someone else try different looks on your face for special occasions. Not only does it help me think of new ideas for the future, but it also makes me feel pampered! No matter if you’re the best makeup artist in the world, you can always learn from others and discover new techniques.
That being said, after seeing pictures of Kate on the day of the Royal Wedding, I am OBSESSED. Her makeup matched her perfectly! It wasn’t overdone and had just the right amount of glam to it. She has undeniable elegance, and I know she is going to do great things. So glad to have such a fab new duchess added to the British monarchy. You go Kate!
