I’m in lust, again. For his Fall 2011 Couture show, Elie Saab may have left his popular Miss Havisham inspiration back in January’s showings, but everything was still exquisitely Elie. Icy blue-toned greys, aquamarines, mauves and golds were heavily embellished and intelligently crafted – a flawless collection that ended in a platinum white wedding dress for The Princess Pack. Give me beads, give me tulle, give me everything. No complaints. View Post
Fully-lined eyes, except for the waterline.
Smoky grey/pewter eyeshadow with a reflective property (the closest a royal will ever get to glitter eyes).
Lots of mascara.
Filled-in brows, natural shape.
Coral blush. (I wouldn’t be surprised if it was NARS Orgasm Blush).
A glossy nude lipstick – looks similar to L’Oreal’s sheer pink lemonade..
Dewy foundation, like Clinique’s Dewy Smooth with has perfectly balanced pink tones.
Kate Middleton’s Wedding Make-Up
My cosmetic predictions/aspirations are Photoshopped above! To stay true to the ‘Middleton look’, the eyes had to be the focus. Since weddings often call for tears, the ageing undereye kohl liner had to be replaced with a soft smudge of waterproof eyeliner in a very light shade. (Can’t have photos with lines down the face, can we Princess?) Make-up will have to be heavier to not be washed out via flash photography, therefore a strong, semi-winged upper line will keep the attention on her peepers. A stark white wedding dress allows perfection in a pinker blush, softly lined lips, and coffee-coloured smoky eyes.
