Watch: Our Full Royal Wedding Makeup Look


Prince Harry – possibly the world’s most down-to-earth and genuinely fun-seeming prince – is soon to be officially off the market (sorry, all you broken-hearted would-be princesses). Sadly, our invites to the Royal Wedding this weekend seem to have been lost in the mail, but don’t worry, we can deal. While we won’t be at Windsor Castle to watch our favourite highly photogenic couple say “I do,” that didn’t stop us from putting together our dream Royal Wedding beauty look! Sit back, relax, and watch it all come together in this video, then try it out yourself for any weddings you’ve got on your own calendar this summer.

A royal wedding is simultaneously a glamorous affair but a somewhat conservative crowd, so we went for a look that’s pretty, just a touch shimmery, but not too over-the-top. We also opted for stay-all-day and waterproof products, so that your look is just as fresh during the reception toasts as it was for the I-dos.

Find a list of the products our makeup artist used to put the look together, which you can find at MAC Cosmetics in St. Vital Centre, below, and don’t forget to check out more hair and makeup tutorials here.
