The Royal Wedding was watch by over two billion people from all over the world, who wanted to take a glimpse at one of the most lavishing weddings of the decade. It's been 30 years since such an event took place and the wait was worth the result. Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge, wife of His Royal Highness, Duke of Cambridge (Prince William), looked classy like a true princess having been admired by everyone.

Kate Middleton's hairstyle and makeup was indeed fit for a princess, managing to receive praises from everyone. Apparently, Catherine wanted to keep things simple, so she opted to do her own makeup. YES! Britain's new Princess didn't pamper herself by turning to professional makeup artists, but instead opted to prep herself for the big day just like a regular girl would.

Naturalness and simplicity have become Kate Middleton's trademark and it was no surprise that she decided to maintain the same pattern for her big day. Elegance and refinement is expressed in its purest form by simplicity, so no other makeup style would have suited the royal occasion better on this important day.

Kate Middleton was confident enough to do her own makeup for this big day and surprisingly she couldn't have done a better job. However, she opted to take a few makeup classes before the big day from renowned makeup artist Arrabella Preston. Apparently, it only took Kate about three or four private lessons to learn the proper steps to do her own bridal makeup look and those lessons paid off well as she looked flawless.
Kate opted for a warm color palette which offered her a sophisticated appearance. Pink tones were dominant and created a fresh look that complemented Kate's rosey complexion. The subtle smoked-up eye makeup added more depth to her eyes, making them stand out, while the pink colored blush added that definition to her gorgeous facial features.
As far as lip makeup goes, Kate opted for a neutral, flesh colored lipstick which offered her a lightweight natural coverage for a harmonious balance with the rest of her look.

When it came to hair styling, things took a different turn as she has placed her trust in the hands of professionals. She wanted William to still recognize her for her wedding day, as most women opt for a total transformation for their wedding, so she had her hair stylist Richard Ward give her an appropriate, yet simple look. Kate Middleton's wedding hairstyle matched her Alexander McQueen bridal gown perfectly as well as her makeup choice. The half up/half down hairstyle chosen featured a lovely subtle wave at the ends and was beautifully set with a Cartier diamond tiara lent by Queen Elizabeth II especially for this day.

Kate Middleton's look was indeed dressed flawlessly for the event and will definitely inspire women across the world for their big day!

Ever since the royal engagement was announced, the world has been waiting impatiently to see Kate Middleton's wedding dress. Today the royal bride finally walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey wearing a stunning lace wedding gown, designed by no other than Sarah Burton of the Alexander McQueen fashion house.

Dress
Kate Middleton herself worked closely with the designer to make sure she'll get the perfect gown for the royal wedding. The ivory satin bridal gown featured a lace applique bodice with a restrained, high lace collar, long lace sleeves and an 8 foot long train. The gown's bodice was narrowed down the waist and padded at the hips inspired by Victorian corsetry.

Veil
Kate's silk tulle veil was embroidered with rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock lace flowers. The intricate lace was hand-crafted at London's Royal School of Needlework based at Hampton Court Palace.

Shoes
Kate Middleton's shoes were also designed by the McQueen fashion house, made of ivory satin with hand-embroidered lace details to complement her wedding gown perfectly.

Tiara
The diamond tiara topped Kate Middleton's wedding hairstyle, which she wore in her trademark loose waves pulled back into a half updo. The tiara was lent to her by the Queen, which was given to her by Cartier in 1938 for her 18th birthday when she was still a princess.

Earrings
The royal bride accessorized with pear-shaped diamond earrings designed by fine jeweler Robinson Pelham and were inspired by the Middleton's new coat of arms, which was given to the family earlier this month.

Bouquet
Kate Middleton?s wedding bouquet was made up of myrtle, lily of the valley, sweet William and hyacinth, designed by Shane Connolly. The flowers from her bridal bouquet all have a special meaning: the myrtle is the emblem of love and marriage, the lily of the valley is the return of happiness, sweet William stands for gallantry, while the hyacinth symbolizes constancy of love.

Designer feedback
Top fashion designers all over the world expressed their excitement about Kate Middleton's wedding gown. Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld said: "She is very elegant. The dress is classic and goes very well in the Westminster decor. It almost reminds me of (Queen) Elizabeth?s wedding, the royal weddings in the Fifties. The proportion of the train is good. The lace is very pretty. I like the veil a lot."
French couturier Christian Lacroix cited the likeness of the royal wedding gown to 1956 Grace Kelly and 1947 Queen Elizabeth dresses, while Donatella Versace simply said: "Kate's dress was beautiful. She looked very regal."
