It is pretty sure that you do not need to be a princess to look gorgeous on your wedding day, every women looks wonderful with their bridal dress.
I did not really like the bridal dress, it was simpler than I expected, I was expecting a magnificent bridal dress but looked nice on her,
According to the Lucky Magazine maybe her dress has been inspired from Maria in Sound of Music .
there are similarities but so look a like…
Let;s go back to our topic, Kate Middleton’s Wedding Makeup
I got a say, she took a brave step to do her own wedding makeup,
As I am into makeup for so many years I did not even do my own wedding makeup, I worked with a pro.
Her wedding make up is pretty natural,it combines with her modest character.
I also noticed that she prefers natural makeup on her wedding day.
Her wedding makeup is far from being overloaded with heavy makeup but she had a makeup that she looked stunning, and beautiful.
And also her pictures are not brushed up, it was live on TV
Lets start to analyse from her eyes
First she might used a primer of her choice to set her eye makeup and to make it long lasting
A lighter shade used to highlight her brow bones
On her eyes it appears like she used warm tones and create Smokey eyes on the lids, it appears like a gray brown eye shadow is used to create the bridal look, it is not really a dark smokey eyes,
She used brown - black eye liner on the lids and water line
On her eyebrows she might give her brows with an eye brow gel and it appears like she used brow powders or a cake brow product for her brows.
It does not appear like she is wearing false lashes, even if she does she is wearing individual ones, which looks very natural and very hard to tell if it is her own or individual lashes
She curled her lashes and used black water proof mascara
So to give you a simple idea i am listing the products she might use on her eyes
Laura Mercier eye brow gel for giving a shape
Stila eye brow powder
Could be cargo cool neutral palette
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Lancome Art Liner in Brown
Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells or Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
She might use a primer under her foundation it will be a long day t for her
I guess she uses light –medium coverage makeup in her daily life but this is her wedding day and she will be having a long day so she might went for medium coverage foundation, as her foundation is blended carefully, she might use a beauty blender rather than a brush.
she used a very natural concealer this might be a liquid concealer. it is hard to blend cream concealers
To set her make up she might use makeup setting spray, loose primer, or this could be an HD powder
It also appears like she used line refiner before she applied her foundation to her fine lines on lip area.
I think she used a contour powder first,
than she applied multiple ( blush sticks, or cream blushes)duo on top of her contour powder, than she applied her blush.
she is not a professional makeup artist so it might be hard for her to apply cream blushes, it appears like it is a smilar product to NARS Multiple duo
than she applied her blush.
and on the lips
The products she might use on her face makeup and her lips she might use a light pink lip stick and than she might use a clear gloss on top of it.
Products she might used on her face and lip makeup
HD Blush / Multiple Duo / Cream Blush / Blush
she used peaches and pinks on her cheeks so I am guessing
MUFE HD BLUSH
ONE TOO MANY
NIP SLIP (IT IS NEUTRAL PINK)
so the lipstick looks like
YSL Rouge Volupte 102 Coral Sun
101 Beige Caress
or Yves Saint Laurent PUR Couture lipstick Pink Coral
it looks like she is only wearing a lipstick she did not apply lipgloss on top of her lipstick
those are the products I am guessing,
National Lavender Week is the 3rd - 9th May 2011. One of the most widely used, versatile herbs known today, there are about 25-30 different species of lavender that have long been used to treat an array of health issues such as digestive problems, insomnia, anxiety and restlessness.
There are many advantages to using lavender in skincare also. It is very gentle and recognised for its ability to calm skin as well as the mind. Lavender flowers can act as a gentle natural exfoliant, while lavender infusion, the water content of the product, has a soothing action on the skin.
Creators of fresh handmade cosmetics, here at Lush we work with only the very best natural ingredients and use lavender extensively throughout all of our ranges for its relaxing, antiseptic and healing qualities. We buy our lavender from the South of France and last year used 280kg of dried lavender and 2000kg of lavender oil in our products.
Lush Co-founder and Product Creator, Helen Ambrosen, says, “You can never go wrong with lavender or choose a more beautiful oil or herb. Every aspect of it is lovely … visually from the colour and beautiful flower, to the scent of the ingredient itself and its properties on the skin. It also benefits everyone and can calm any type of skin.”
Lush embraces this most versatile of essential oils
and uses it in many of its body products. Dream
Cream (£10.25 for 240g) is Lush’s best selling
body moisturiser, favoured by A-list stars such as
Halle Berry. It contains a mixture of soothing
lavender, rose and camomile … and is excellent for
sensitive skins. Many Lush fans comment of Dream Cream’s ability to soothe eczema and other
skinMany Lush fans comment of Dream Cream’s ability to soothe eczema and other
skin complaints, especially when used with Dreamwash shower soap (£8.95 for 250g).
Lavender is also used in our Angel's on Bare Skin (£5.80 for 100g) and Fresh Farmacy
(£4.35 for 100g) cleansers, and in Love Lettuce and The Sacred Truth fresh facemasks
(£5.25 for 75g) for its antiseptic, antibacterial and soothing qualities.
A French Kiss bubble bar (£3.95) contains lavender oil, lavender absolute and even has a
sprig of lavender on top. There’s also a hint of rosemary and thyme – both of which are widely
used Mediterranean herbs and stimulants and antidepressants. The Twilight bath ballistic
(£2.99) harnesses lavender’s sedating properties for the ultimate in relaxation.
Dreamtime (£2.95 for 100g) and Ceridwen's Cauldron (£3.99 for 80g) luxury bath melts
also both contain lavender oil, used here for its relaxing and deodorising effects, plus its beautiful
Antiseptic, antiviral and decongestant, lavender oil is valuable for most skin conditions - promoting
cell regeneration and restoring the mind and body to a state of balance where healing can occur. It
is for this reason lavender is widely used to help acne, eczema and psoriasis and also to treat
burns and all kinds of injuries, promoting rapid healing and scar prevention.
We use lavender oil in our Vanishing Cream facial moisturiser (£15.95 for 45g) and our
Lemony Flutter cuticle butter (£5.80 for 50g) for its antiseptic and soothing properties.
The NEW DIRTY Shaving Cream (£4.95 for 100g) from
the recently launched range by the Gorilla Perfumers at
Lush also contains lavender, along with ultra-softening oats
and moisturising shea butter, to soothe any irritations or
redness and calm sore skin.
This is the post that I promised you when I am doing my review on Sigma F15 duo fibre brush
In this post I will be comparing Sigma F15 Duo Fibre Blush / Powder Brush and MAC Duo Fibre 131 brush…. Dr. Makeup Temple has 2 patients on the operation table today..
We will be talking pluses and minus of these two patients today…
1-) MAC 131 has shorten handle than Sigma F15
2) Sigma F15 has wider but shorter bristles
3-) MAC 131 has longer but
4-) Sigma F15 has flat bristles
5-)Sigma F15 handle is thicker than MAC 131
6-) Sigma F15 gives us an easy application comparing to MAC 131
7-) MAC 131 is not bad but Sigma F15 is better for foundation
8-)They both do not leave bristles on face
9-)Both MAC 131 Duo Fibre brush and Sigma F15 does not leave any streak marks like MAC 187 and Sigma F50 or other Duo Fibre Brushes..
10-) I can only say one negative thing about Sigma Brushes, I am talking on the Sigma Brushes I have and generally after a certain use and wash they fall apart from the handle, and i used super glue on one of the brushes, now I seriously do not remember which one for sure but as far as I remember it was Sigma F50
11-) If you ask me Sigma F15 or MAC 131 I will definitely say Sigma F15, If I say Sigma F15 than why did I purchase MAC 131 it is because I do not like to use just one brush in one brand, I would not know which one is better if i did not use both two. MAC 131 is not bad, they are at the same quality but at this time I like Sigma F15, both of the brushes has been purchased by myself.
12-)MAC 131 Duo Fibre Brush Cost 40 USD and was a limited edit brush, Sigma F15 is not a limited edit brush on and it costs
13-) MAC 131 is good at applying highly pigmented products, pigments, glitters, NARS Orgasm Blushes, Dark or Red CC, or dark foundations which is used by pros on contouring and highlighting , cream blend foundations, cream blushes
14-) I generally us MAC 131 with liquid highlighters, like Soap & Glory Hocus Focus.
15-) Try mixing your loose bronzer and Liquid Highlighter than apply with using MAC 131 or Sigma F15 you will be amazed…
16-) It is easier to clean these two brushes, I usually wash them with a baby shampoo, I tried to use brush shampoos in past but those shampoos is not really helpful when cleaning up makeup brushes and it leaves a strange scent on the brushes which gives me a nausea, at the end a regular baby shampoo is inexpensive and it is for sensitive skin so it will not give any harm to your brushes.. I am totally against washing your brushes with detergents, Detergents are carcinogen and baby shampoos are not.
17-) On my latest post I gave you the dupe list for MAC 131 but I do not mind mentioning it again
- Sigma F15 Duo Fibre Brush – MAC 131 Duo Fibre Brush
- Coastal Scents C427
- Hakuhodou G545
- Hakuhodou G544
- Coastal Scents Tapered Duo Fiber Brush

We can all admire a woman with a 30-carat diamond. But the new dazzle is Semi-Precious. Gems that are rare in spirit, rich in substance and worn not as jewels but far more fluidly, on the skin. In MAC Semi-Precious, three mineralize formulas just became richer with the infusion of four finely milled gems each bringing their own earthy and spiritual affluence to the mineralize collection.
Consider the beauty of bronzeite with the regal golden-bronze flashes; mysteriously electric black tourmaline; golden glittering pyrite and lepiodlite, a calming crystalline lilac stone. Imagine the impact, gleam, and depth of color as they work their mystique on Mineralize Eye Shadows, Mineralize Skinfinishes and Mineralize Blush. Setting them off: Lipsticks, Cremesheen Glass, Zoom Fast Black Mascara, Mineralize Satin Finish SPF 15 Foundation, Mineralize Face + Body Lotion and Revitalizing Energy Mineralize Charged Water.
For skillful application, four new limited-life split fiber brushes a concise half and half compilation of natural and synthetic fibres both sides deposit and distribute color for a soft diffused look use the natural side; for an application the blends, buffs and fuses the color to the skin, use the synthetic. Like any limited edition, these elements start off rare, and tend to get rarer… get rich while you can!
