With the Royal Wedding on Friday, April 29, brides in the Chicago area might be wondering how they can get the look of a princess on their special day as well.

Mario Tricoci is a beauty expert and hair stylist with a series of shops in the Chicago area. He and his team -- including a mode who wore a dress by designer Jenny Yoo -- were in our ABC7 studio with tips how you can achieve that "royal look."

1. Hair
You don't have to wear a classic up-do to look like royalty. Just ask Kate Middleton, who's wearing her hair down for the big day.

2. Airbrush Makeup
Airbrush makeup provides light, yet flawless coverage that lasts up to 18 hours.

3. Custom Blended Makeup
A custom look is key to create your royal look. Customized lipsticks, blushes and powders can be created just for you to best complement your skin tone and color that tie-in with your overall wedding look.

4. No-Chip Manicure & Pedicure
Gorgeous nails are the perfect accessories for a wedding dress, whether you plan to show off a vibrant pink hue or matte finish. The best part of the No-Chip is that your nail color will last up to 14 days, so your nails will still be in perfect condition for your honeymoon.
