Behold! A princess who does her own makeup.

Kate Middleton showed off her expert bridal beauty training from makeup artist Arabella Preston on her royal wedding day. And while it isn't a drastic departure from her normal makeup routine, the newly appointed Duchess of Cambridge donned some serious smoky eye makeup.

With her brunette locks styled half-up, half-down in long, soft curls and dressed in a Cartier tiara borrowed from the Queen, Kate's elegant beauty -- bold brows, heavily-lined lids, rosy cheeks and pink lips -- made quite the statement.

We may have suggested softer smoky eyes, but we admire Kate for wielding the makeup brush on her wedding day.

    Kate Middleton is totally gorgeous. Any kind of makeup she uses would only enhance her beauty.

  • mary

    too heavy with the foundation. shows quite a bit of wrinkles. too many wrinkles for 30 years old. all in all not ugly though like some of those other royals.

  • Jessica

    She was beautiful, but her foundation and blush were a little too heavy. Her eyes were outstanding!

    I am so happy for Kate that she was brave to put her own makeup. She did a beautiful job and looked stunning !
    I filmed a short video and a post a blog few weeks ago exactly about that subject. As a singer songwriter and a model in the past , I learn how to do my own make up for big occasions

    I was thinking the same thing that was commented in the article. As gorgeous as Catherine is, any good makeup artist would have advised that she soften her eyes a bit by blending her bottom eyeliner a bit. The hard line aged her lovely features a little.

    Arrrgh. As a pro makeup artist it's hard to watch something like this...the makeup was not up to the level of the dress and style of the rest of the wedding on so many levels..a public figure needs to turn to pros for occasions this big
