Kate Middleton's makeup has been a hot topic among royal wedding followers in recent days, with some jaws dropping that the future princess would do her big day makeup all by herself.

The new Duchess of Cambridge make her walk down the aisle in a flawless makeup look: Kate looked very much herself on her very best day.

The key to successful wedding makeup is to look like your best self. Makeup should be kept mostly natural—this is not the time to try a bold new look. Kate opted for a makeup routine similar to her usual, with deepened blush and a slightly smokier eye.

Since Prince William popped the question in December 2010, fashionistas the world over have succumbed to endless speculation about who would design Kate Middleton's wedding dress. Every designer under British rein was pinpointed as a possibility—from traditional royal dresser Bruce Oldfield to chic newcomer Victoria Beckham to edgy Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Rumors also flew that Kate would wear not one but three royal gowns. It was confirmed the week of the wedding that her bridesmaids would wear Temperley.
