Kate Middleton's best bridal accessories are without doubt her flawless hair, skin and makeup. (Though that Cartier tiara and Lady Di's striking sapphire engagement ring are rather lustworthy, as well!)
The Scoop on HRH the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding day beauty look:
The Hair: A Classic Half-Updo
The newly crowned Mrs. Mountbatten-Windsor hired longtime stylist James Pryce of London's Richard Ward Salon and Metrospa for the big day, with her sole condition being that "William must recognize her by the time she gets to the altar." With that in mind, Pryce created a natural, familiar half-updo, with loose, silken ringlets at the base.
The Skin: Compliments of Karin Herzog
Kate's radiant, lit-from-within glow is reportedly due to her devotion to all things Karin Herzog. From the esthetician's signature Oxygen facials to a daily dose of Oxygen Face Cream, Prince William's bride can't get enough of this Swiss-based beauty brand and its London spa.
The Makeup: Amplified Everyday
As for her English Rose-inspired makeup, it's being said that she did it herself, possibly using Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. The newlywed was spotted just last week purchasing her brand favorites in shades slightly darker than what she usually wears in the winter. In addition, Kate hired London makeup artist Arabella Preston, to help her perfect her techniques. It's said the two met three or four times before the big day.
The Nails: Layers of Petal-Pink
The bride's nails were done by Marina Sandoval from the Jo Hansford Salon in Mayfair, who used a combination of Essie Nail Polish in Allure (a sheer, beige pink) and Bourjois Nail Enamel in Rose Lounge (a light, milky pink).
