Royal wedding: Princess Eugenie chooses same makeup artist as Duchess of Cambridge

Princess Eugenie opted for the same makeup artist for her wedding day that the Duchess of Cambridge employed when she married Prince William in 2011.

The royal’s bridal beauty look was created by Bobbi Brown’s Hannah Martin, who became a highly sought-after name in the industry following her work with Kate Middleton.

However, the 28-year-old bride’s makeup was not quite as heavy as the Duchess’, featuring a rose-pink lip and a dusting of peach blusher on the cheeks.

As for eye makeup, Eugenie sported a defined brow with a slick of eyeliner.

Shortly after the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding, Martin revealed some of her go-to tricks for achieving a natural bridal look, recommending a shimmer-free highlighter and a cream blush.

“Although I adore cream blush, for a bride I like a clear, blue-based pink powder,” she told Hello!.

As for concealer, the makeup pro also advised seeking a creamy pot as opposed to a stick-based product. She also suggested avoiding light-reflective concealers, as these may flare up under flash photography.

When it comes to wedding day hair, Princess Eugenie was styled by Sonny-Jo Macfarlane of Hari’s hairdressers.

The royal bride chose a classic, unfussy updo for her big day, a wise choice given that its simplicity offset the opulence of her tiara, which featured a 93.7 carat emerald.

“The Royal Wedding hair look is a soft-waved, low-deconstructed chignon bun,” he tells The Independent.

“The hair is set either in rollers or tongued and then pinned to set the curls.”

Next, he advises separating the front from the back, using a back-combing technique on the crown area and pinned this into the lower nape of the neck.

The remaining curls are softly put up, creating a soft romantic and relaxed chignon.

The overall look is very timeless,” he adds, “the classy hair up compliments her face shape and breaks up the simplicity of the dress.”
