Last week, it was rumored that the Duchess of Cambridge said ‘no thanks’ to professional makeup help, instead choosing to do her own eyes, cheeks and lips on her wedding day. So was it true? A friend of Kate’s tells PEOPLE that she did indeed go at it alone for her Friday nuptials. “She’s really confident when it comes to her makeup,” the source shares. However, it wasn’t without a little help. Bobbi Brown confirmed this week that members of the royal wedding party received “makeup artistry assistance” from company makeup artist Hannah Martin. And Brown, who’s been in the makeup business for more than 20 years, thinks the newlywed was the perfect picture of a blushing bride. “Catherine looked absolutely stunning,” she said in a statement. “I wouldn’t have changed a thing about her makeup. She looked beautiful, fresh and most importantly, happy.” To help Kate and Pippa wannabes get the girls’ gorgeous looks, the company released face charts with suggestions of products and colors you can use at home to get your own royal wedding face. To emulate Kate’s look, the brand recommends items like ivory, metallic and slate eye shadow, black ink gel liner and three shades of pink blush, plus a pink lip color topped with gloss. Pippa-like directions include bone and ash shadows, black ink gel liner, a bronze blush and pretty pink lip gloss. Check out the face charts for specific product names and placement.

They both looked gorgeous!!!!! Impressed if it was done by herself (Kate’s).

There is no question that Kate looked lovely. My only criticisms: Kate should have eased up on the black eyeliner (she seems to love it but doesn’t blend it well) and Pippa should have eased up on the self-tanner.

Jen on

I did my own makeup for my wedding day and I looked amazing. It was a good thing that I did my own because the makeup artists usually put more makeup on than they should. The Duchess of Cambridge and her sister looked so beautiful!

Jon on

I like The PHOTOS! If I were a Girl, it’d be interesting to do my own make-up on my Wedding Day, but I’d also rather have other people do it as well, etc.

Jon on

I had no idea Courteney Cox and Brad Pitt had been friendly at all since he Split with her BFF, Jen Aniston, back in January of 2005! Also, I like The Fancy Details behind Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris’s Wedding Invitations, they look nice!

Mary on

I agree with Jennifer–the eyeliner was a little too heavy. Maybe a brown would have looked more natural? Regardless, Kate still looked very beautiful.

Wabbit on

They are truly in love and I hope they can enjoy each other without the intrustion of the news people, they will live happily ever after….let the love grow….

Wabbit on

We want lots of babies…..hurry up with the grandkids….your ready….
