Feeling a little Royal???

We all can’t help but act a bit more “royal” lately. At Tamara Makeup and Hair Artistry we’ve noticed something different about our staff.We’ve been standing up straighter, speaking more eloquently, in general, we have royal wedding fever! After witnessing the wedding of the century were sure our brides will be thinking of ways to to make there own wedding a royal affair. Of course it’s all about the Hair and Makeup! Vintage with a modern twist. Kate Middleton wore her hair in a beautiful style with only a few key pieces pinned back. Large Veronica Lake style curls were used to really keep the hair traditional yet stunning. Her makeup evoked a natural beauty from an era long since passed. Matte brown tones were used on her eyes with a lighter brown packed all over her lid. Darker shades were buffed into her crease. Natural looking false lashes were used to enhance the eyes and really make them a statement. Remember, vintage makeup was all about the lashes! A natural finish makeup was used for her foundation and the emphasis was definitly placed on her cheeks. Accenting her strong cheekbones was a dark pink/purple hued blush with just a hint of shimmer. This kept her looking glowing all day in every sort of lighting. Her lip was more of a stain. Very cinderella-esque. You can achieve this look by working with a creamy lipstick (no shimmer) and pressing into the lip with a lip brush. This gives the effect that this is your own natural lip color. Use a light berry toned lip color to do so. Nothing to nude or to pink. Of course we probably won’t be given a tiara worn by Queen Elizabeth but I thought her choice of tiara was spot on. Its easy to get carried away with large accessories on our wedding day. But Kate really proved less is more! It was simple yet impossible to miss and served to create just the right amount of drama. Of course last but not least who could forget the dress!? Her dress used for the ceremony could not evoke Grace Kelly any better. It was an absolute stunningly modern take on Princess Grace of Monaco’s wedding gown worn in the 50′s. It showed just the right amount of skin and the full skirt which was designed to emulate a flower fit the occasion perfectly. So ladies, I hope we gave you some idea’s on how to make your already beautiful weddings just a bit more Royal this year. And as always never be afraid to ask your stylists, and artist’s at Tamara Makeup and Hair Artistry how to help you truly become a Princess on your special day!
