Was this £30 bronzer the key to Princess Eugenie’s wedding day glow?

Royal wedding fever swept the nation once again as Princess Eugenie tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank last Friday – and while much of the conversation has been about her gorgeous long-sleeved Peter Piloto gown, we’re just as interested in her wedding day make-up.

From the moment we saw Eugenie pull up outside Windsor Castle in a Rolls Royce Phantom VI, it was clear that she’d opted for fresh, natural products that enhanced her English rose features: a flawless base that was elevated with a flush of colour on her lips and cheeks, dark, accentuated brows and pretty liner and lashes.

According to HELLO! magazine, the look was done by Bobbi Brown pro Hannah Martin, who also prepped Kate Middleton for her big day. This is no surprise, as Eugenie has professed her love for Bobbi products publicly in the past; in particular, when it comes to bronzer.

Singing the praises of the industry expert, the princess told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘I use Charlotte Tilbury and Bobbi Brown—Charlotte’s mascara and Bobbi Brown bronzer. They are geniuses.’

Now, the palace doesn’t confirm details of royal fashion and beauty choices, so we don’t know for sure that this was the bronzer Eugenie opted for for the wedding itself – but given her past declarations of love and her choice of artist, we’d say it’s highly likely.

In a YouTube video revealing more of her bridal make-up tips, Hannah said that she swears by Bobbi Brown’s Natural Skin Foundation Stick, as it doesn’t contain SPF and therefore won’t cause bounce back during flash photography, and the brand’s Pale Pink Blush on the apples of cheeks, as well as the bronzer that’s already known and loved by Eugenie.

And when it comes to mascara? ‘Use the texture you want first on your lashes to get the finish you want, then put a “rain coat” over the top with waterproof mascara to lock lashes in place,’ she advises. Well, even princes and princesses have to consider the possibility of inevitable wedding day tears…
