Inside Kim Kardashian’s $150,000 Wedding Beauty Prep

The price of beauty!

Kim Kardashian looked flawless at her Saturday nuptials to Kris Humphries, but getting that glammed up didn’t come cheap. The reality star indulged in $150,000 worth of grooming services, albeit free, to get ready for her big day.

The 30-year-old bride got VIP treatment with a late-night brow touch-up hours before she walked down the aisle. Kardashian tweeted a pic of brow pro Anastasia cleaning up her arches in her hotel room at 11:30 p.m.

“She has such beautiful eyes and lashes so I used high arch from my kit, brunette powder to fill in certain areas, and caramel tinted brow gel to make her eyes stand out,” Anastasia told Us Weekly.

As for her wedding-day makeup, the E! megstar enlisted celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic to recreate her signature look: smoky eyes, full brows, pink blush and glossy pink lips. The only over-the-top touch: what appeared to be several sets of false lashes.

“I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be a part of such an important and special day in Kim’s life,” Dedivanovic wrote on his blog August 4. “I’ve envisioned what she would look like as a bride ever since I began working with her and I finally get to bring that vision of beauty to life!

And although she had lightened up her brunette locks in July, Kardashian returned to L.A.’s Goodform Salon weeks before her big day to go back to her darker roots. A source tells Us that she opted for a glossy, semi-permanent glaze that was close to her natural color: a minky brown.

Celebrity (Wedding) Style Steal: Kim Kardashian‏

For years fans have watched the Kardashian sisters navigate business, family and the search for love on the wildly popular television show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. This past Saturday, perhaps the most well known sister, Kim, married her fiancé Kris Humphreys in front of 440 guests at a private estate in Montecito, California. Always the trend-setter, all eyes were on Kim’s dresses, (she had a reported three made by renowned designer Vera Wang) her jewelry and hair.

“The low chignon adorned with diamonds and topped with a veil beautifully fused the classic style with the more modern and sophisticated look Kim is known for,” states renowned stylist and founder of Rahua hair care, Fabian Lliguin.

Here, he shares his simple tips for replicating the look:

Apply a styling cream, like Rahua Conditioner, all over hair.
Comb hair back into a low ponytail and secure. Pull aside a small piece from the side of the ponytail for later use.
Back comb the entire ponytail from bottom up and spray with a workable, yet strong, hairspray (Oribe makes a great option).
Start smoothing hair down while shaping the roundness of the bun.
Once this has been achieved, start tucking hair under at the nape of the neck and secure with pins.
Then, using the small section that had been set aside, wrap around the base of the ponytail and secure hair ends with a pin.
Add the bling in the form of a tiara (or in the past I’ve used actual necklaces and pinned into the hair to create this bejeweled look) and secure with pins.
Install and secure your veil and head down the aisle in style.

So whether you’re reality TV royalty, or simply looking to steal the look, these simple tips will get you down the aisle in style.
