Big-day beauty advice, fit for a princess…

To perk up her skin…


An essential last step in her skincare routine is a quick spritz of Benefit Specialist Ultra Radiance Facial Re-Hydrating Mist, £19.50 (launching 21 May). On top of a major hydration hit, it’s packed with skin goodies proven to help beat stress! A must-have, especially for when she opens her curtains to see the crowds gathering outside…..


To perk up her peepers…


If a nervous night means that Kate doesn’t get her kip, keeping this brightening eye mask on standby will make a worthwhile investment. Fifteen minutes under a Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energising Eye Mask, £35.80 for four, will fool the world into thinking she easily managed a full eight hours. We’re talking less puffy, less line-y and dark circle-free eyes thanks to a concoction of glow-bestowing oxygen and cucumber.


To perk up her pout…


All eyes will be on Kate’s lips during the big day. When she first smiles at her prince waiting by the altar, when she says her vows and when they share their first kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace…. To make sure her pout is up to public scrutiny (not to mention a kiss from a future king) Nubo Instant Lip Perfection SPF15, £38 delivers immediate moisture, a shot of non-sticky gloss and a little lip plumping action too. We love it…


To perk up her complexion…


Combining a flaw-fixing foundation with a boost of bronzer is Guerlain Terracotta Skin Healthy Glow Foundation, £33. This clever cream covers imperfections, smooths fine lines, shrinks pores and leaves behind a flattering layer of bronzing powder. Just sometimes an English Rose wants to give her pale and interesting complexion a pretty golden glow!


To perk up her hair…


It’s an oldie but a goodie. Relaxing under a layer of eucalyptus spiked Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Luscious Long, £4.49 will drench her hair in moisture and leave it with a shine to rival her engagement ring for bling. If she’s wearing her hair down (and we really hope she does) Wills will love how touchy-feely it is…


To perk up her body…


Kate didn’t head to the sun for her hen so she’ll have to go the safer, wrinkle-free way and warm up her skin with a dose of fake tan. On top of golden limbs, she’ll look healthier too. A tan-in-a-can worth giving a go is Sexy Hair Aero Tan, £12. We like it because it shows up instantly, dries quickly (essential when you’re about to step into a white dress) and won’t leave a biscuity smell that’ll clash with her fragrance.
