Royal Wedding Pics: Meghan Markle's Wedding Makeup, Nails and Wedding Dress

A royal wedding is so romantic! I couldn't wait to see Meghan Markle's wedding dress and makeup. I go up early and had the tea and scones ready!

One big question my clients were all talking about was would Harry shave? No he didn't!

Meghan looked lovely as she entered the church with her flower girls and page boys! 
The other big question, the dress. Who would the designer be and what would it look like? The dress was a very regal understated boat neck Claire Waight Keller gown perfect for Meghan's minimalist style in a modern shade of white. Claire Waight Keller is a British designer and artistic director at Givenchy. Meghan chose to wear Queen Mary's tiara with her long veil.

The makeup is always very important for me. Many of my brides may want to wear
her look. Meghan's skin look luminous with little if any foundation showing her freckles. Her cheeks had the faintest hint of pink to match her semi matte pale pink lips. She wore matte eye shadow in shades of brown with understated black eye liner and long black lashes. Her brows were nicely arched and filled in with dark brown.

Look how her skin glowed in the sun light! Just gorgeous! Meghan knows the importance of good skin care. She spent time working with a facialist to get her skin wedding ready.

Zoya Violet Nail Colors with Wild Violet Flowers in my Garden

violets
Every April and May I have sweet little wild violets blooming in my garden and in various locations around my yard! They seem especially beautiful this year. Their leaves are a cute heart shape, which I just love, and they make a nice leafy filler in the garden throughout the summer.

The spring violet flowers are beautiful vibrant shades of purple, a mix of deeper blue purples and lighter more red purples with blue purple veining. Nature gives us incredible, inspiring colors! I'm thinking this would be an amazing nail color, right?

A mix of nail polish colors is in order to mimic the various shades of purple in the violet flower. I frequently layer nail polish colors to create unique custom looks for my clients to match a special outfit or just to give them their own special nail polish color. I went to my Zoya nail polish collection and settled on Zoya Landon, Zoya Delaney and Zoya Leisel.

Landon 
A deep creamy purple with a hint of red. 

Delaney 
A multi chromatic purple flip. This metallic shimmer has shades of green, blue, purple and pewter that looks different in various lighting and angles. 

Leisel 
A sheer pinky purple shimmer topper that adds beautiful sparkling dimension. 

I started with one coat of rich creamy opaque Landon for a nice purple base with hints of red. Next, I added a coat of  semi sheer Delaney for it's blue purple multi chromatic flip. I topped it all off with Leisel for sparkling pinky purple dimension. It came out gorgeous!!!
