As the country counts down to the most anticipated wedding of the century, take a leaf out of the future Queen’s beauty book to help you bag your very own Prince Charming with a little help from Boots. If it’s a royal flush you’re after, why not visit No7 consultants in store to help you perfect the look in the run up to the wedding, with a free No7 make-over.*
Vanesa Guallar 17 Make-up Artist: “With her glowing, natural looks, Kate Middleton has a glamorous classic look. The key to copying her style this wedding season is keeping your look simple and sophisticated, whether you’re the bride, bridesmaid, guest or even mother of the bride – just follow these tips”
Kate’s trademark flawless complexion is nothing short of princess-perfect, with a natural glow that gives off airs of royalty. To mirror her look, a good base is essential, prepare with 17 Photo Flawless Primer, 15ml, £4.99 to create an effortless matte finish, minimising pores and helping foundation glide on seamlessly. Next, apply 17 Photo Flawless Foundation, 30ml, £6.49 for 24 hours of smooth, continuous coverage and a professional finish fit for the flashes of the paparazzi!
Next for a rosy glow, give yourself a hint of a royal flush and apply a light dusting of 17 Blush Powder in First Kiss, £3.49, on your cheeks.
Kate’s make-up is fresh and natural, with a seamless, warm glow. To get her look this wedding season make your eyes sparkle with 17 Vintage Love Eye Palette, £5.49 in Metallic Nude, the sophisticated natural brown and golden tones will complement any skin tone. Finish off with lashings of glossy, plumping mascara, such as No7 Extreme Length Waterproof Mascara, 7ml, £13, perfect for even the most teary of eyes as Kate and Wills says their “I dos”.
The jewel in the crown of Kate’s look is her glossy, lustrous hair. To mimic hers, keep yours in tip-top condition with Botanics 3 Minute Deep Conditioning Hair Mask, 450ml, £5.10. To achieve Kate’s natural, voluptuous look, use a brush that is gentle to your hair such as the Boots Botanics Paddle Brush, £8.16, with Umberto Giannini Incredible Blow Dry Spray, 200ml, £4.99 and all you’ll need to create her look is a tiara!
Capturing her Prince has certainly given Kate something to smile about. Achieve your dazzling smile with a little help from the Boots Expert Teeth Whitening Stick, £10.20. The innovative whitening stick is quick and easy to use as well as being clinically proven. Finally, create that perfect wedding kiss pout with a hint of No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in Chic, £10 and you’ll be ready to kiss your prince.
Fit for a King
Not forgetting the William wannabes out there, revive those Prince Charming looks with Botanics Mens Anti Ageing Under Eye Cream, 30ml, £7. Improving the texture of the skin around the eye area and reducing dark circles, it’ll leave eyes looking brighter and smoother. Finish with a healthy application of No7 for Men Energising Moisturiser, 50ml, £8.25, to help recharge skin with a boost of Vitamin C.
