The Perfect Wedding Makeup

The Royal Wedding has been blasted everywhere and I am here to bombard you once more. There’s no doubt that the Duchess of Sussex looked amazing on her wedding day. Her skin was flawless, her makeup was subtle and let her natural gorgeousness shine through, and of course she was glowing with happiness.

But, I want to talk about Lady Kitty Spencer. I became instantly OBSESSED with her look. Her skin is flawless. The soft brown smokey eye makes her light green eyes pop. Blush and highlight are perfectly placed and the pinky-coral lip is a perfect enhancement of her natural lip color. The look is light and elegant, yet very natural. According to US Weekly, her look was created by Charlotte Tilbury. I haven’t tried their products yet but it makes me itch for a trip to the makeup counter. My version is a little darker since I have darker features but I am really loving the result. Also, how have I never tried this blush placement?!

So, what do you think?! I am loving this look. It’s perfect for any wedding on your calendar. Would it be weird to wear this look every day? NOPE! 😉

Face: I started with Benefit POREfessional primer on my face and Laura Mercier eye primer on my lids. Under my eyes I used Mary Kay Undereye Corrector followed by Too Faced Born This Way foundation in Warm Nude. On top of that I used Too Faced Born This Way concealer in Light Medium for the highlight areas under my eyes, forehead, nose, and chin. I know many people love the Beauty Blender but I am just not a fan. I use Sephora Pro Flawless Airbrush brush #56 and love the airbrushed look it gives. I set everything with Mary Kay Translucent Powder. Over the highlighted areas, I used Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting powder. It gives a lightly diffused highlighted look without being too bling-y. I love it under my eyes. Using Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer I very lightly contoured my cheek bones and nose. Right above the contour I used Mary Kay Shy Blush. On my cheekbones and caring it up to my temple I used a powder highlight that I have. It’s been depotted and there’s no name on the back but I am almost positive it’s from Julep.

Eyes: I started with Enlight from the Jaclyn Hill palette all over my lids followed by M.F.E.O. from the same palette on the lid taking the color up to the brow bone and just under the brow itself. I used Winning Ticket from the Color Pop You Had Me At Hello palette (loving this one!) in the crease with a touch of Caramelized from the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette along my lash line. I lined my eyes with Marc Jacobs Fineliner in Truffle. I used Tartiest Lash Paint on my lashes, followed by Benefit Rollerball mascara to lengthen them a bit more.

Lips: Her lips are a great coral-nude color. I used one that is more pink from Bare Minerals: Swag. Looking back, my Julep Lip Oil is Obsession would have been a great color as well.

What was your favorite look from the Royal Wedding?

Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette 

I didn’t get one but my Sis in Law did and she blogged about it over at Purple Giraffe.  


As I’m just jumping back into the blogging biz, I dropped the ball on ordering. I found a studio by me the sells Morphe but they marked it up almost 100% 😡. They were sold out when I went but that mark up is insane so I’ve added myself to the Morphe list to be notified when they restock. 

I did check out their display. My first thought was:  glitter!  The shades are gorgeous and the palette can cover everything from your everyday makeup to a glam look.

As promised via Instagram I’m working on Audrey’s birthday post which is turning into a much longer post than I anticipated.  See ya soon!
