"Zara Phillips chose a classic, more conservative style for her wedding look -- she is beautiful, so why over do it?" says celebrity hair and makeup artist Amanda Shackleton from nybridalbeauty.com. "Her makeup looked flawless."
Shackleton recommends a tinted moisturizer or a light coverage foundation such as Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, $40, to get a picture-perfect complexion. "This will provide minimal coverage, and also reflect light off the skin," she says, creating a great glow. "[Top that] with a light dusting of translucent powder."
Her eyes were extremely classic with a sweep of champagne-colored shimmer (try Nars Shimmer Eyeshadow in Edie, $22) and a dark brown eyeliner on the top and bottom (try MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner, $14). And her cheeks and lips were highlighted with a rosy color. "I just love Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for lips and cheeks, $22, to enhance the natural glow," says Shackleton. "And for any wedding, finish the eyes with a mascara that can withstand tears, she says. (Try Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara, $21.)
"Zara's beautiful blonde [hair was] swept back gracefully with a little bit of lift at the front of her face," says Shackleton. Try Redken Rootful Spray, $13.95, for great lift at the roots before sweeping hair back in a timeless chignon.
And the bride's wedding accessory? Her great grandmother's tiara. "It worked perfectly," says Shackleton.
