Vera Wang S/S 2011

As I’m writing this, Kate Middleton is getting ready to walk down the aisle. I’m not going to try and predict what she will wear or what her hair/makeup will be like. I guess we will know in a couple of hours.

But, if I was her, I would keep the makeup super simple, natural and glow-y. Like this look from Vera Wang S/S 2011 (predictable choice by me, I know). I think the biggest mistake most brides make is overdoing the look: busy eyes, harsh eyeliner, fake lashes, ridiculous amount of blush (or even worse: bronzer!) and lipgloss.

Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni used all Clé de Peau Beauté products (super expensive stuff!). So here is how I would do it in a (slightly) more affordable manner.

NARS ‘Portobello’ eye duo ($38 CAD at Sephora)

NARS ‘Copacobana’ illuminator ($36 CAD at Sephora)

By the way, I am, for the lack of a better term, obsessed with this illuminator. And people always compliment my skin when I wear it. It’s freakin’ amazing!
NARS ‘Luster’ blush ($29 CAD at Sephora)

NARS ‘ Honolulu Honey’ lipstick ($30 CAD at Sephora)

Anyone getting married this summer?
