Bronzed beauty Pippa Middleton sparks must-have hair and make-up trend

Pippa Middleton has become the nation’s newest sweetheart since appearing in her gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown at big sister Kate’s Royal Wedding.

Now the 27 year old, along with her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, has sparked the must-have look this summer, where less is most definitely more.

Forget over fussy hair and lashings of liner, the perfect Pippa makeover is all about achieving a healthy glow teamed with bouncy, glossy hair.

Pip’s look is ideal for the summer as she sports a sun-kissed tan, accentuated with a hint of bronzer.

Make-up artist, Christina McIlroy, shows how to achieve the look with minimal effort. It’s time to grab your bronzing balls and get blending, although be careful not to overdo it – this look is much more Made in Chelsea than The Only Way is Essex.

Christina also applies a light line of eyeliner under the lashes, which has become a signature look of both the Middleton girls.

A sweep of mascara and you’re ready to face the day with a refreshingly natural look.

Yasmin, Salon director of the Rainbow Room Glasgow, shows how simple it is to achieve Pippa’s big bouncy hair.

Big hair is in, just ask Cheryl Cole, but this look is much softer than the backcombing bouffants some stars have been sporting.

Yasmin put a rich brown dye through our Pippa model’s (Katie McNicol from The Model Team) long hair.

She then blow dried it using a large round brush to create volume, before using a Babyliss Wand to produce pretty curls.

The finished look is simple soft, and gorgeously elegant, perfect for everyday wear. Make like a Middleton and get blow-drying!
