Having told aides that she "knows her own face", Kate Middleton insisted on doing her own make-up for her wedding to Prince William.
The 29-year-old received several lessons prior to the big day from make-up artist Arabella Preston.
But on April 29, Kate was the one holding the brushes, in keeping with the natural feel of the nuptials.
She created a soft, smoky eye, and enhanced the apples of her cheeks with a pink blush colour.
Her lips were understated, with a lick of soft pink to match the colour gracing her cheeks.
Determined to look her best for the grand occasion, the brunette beauty also received several beauty treatments.
A manicure was arranged for her by new step-mother-in-law Camilla.
Her nails were painted an off-white bridal shade to complement her divine dress.
She also had regular oxygen facials, a treatment said to plump and smooth the skin.
The lessons and treatments certainly paid off, and radiant Kate was picture-perfect on her big day.
