Kim Kardashian West's make-up artist has dished the dirt on the products behind her gorgeous bridal look... including a lippy that costs under 9 quid!

The star married Kanye West in a fairytale ceremony in Italy last week (24 May). But while we saw glimpses of her stunning Givenchy wedding dress the following day, her hair and make-up credentials were kept top secret until yesterday.

Kim's bouffant was a show-stopper too - she rocked two different styles in one day! Both came courtesy of hairdresser Chris McMillan who also works with top US haircare brand Living Proof (part-owned by Jennifer Aniston).

He revealed how he nailed both looks, in an interview with US gossip site Hollywood Life:

1. 'I started with Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment (a US exclusive) applying the product on damp hair, along with a little bit of Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse, £21, at the crown. Then I gave Kim a classic blowdry with a round brush.

2. 'We did a centre part, which is very fashionable, very chic, and very modern. Then I added a small pump of Living Proof Satin Hair Serum, £25, at the ends of Kim's hair to make it look shiny and healthy. I really wanted her hair to look as healthy, pretty, and youthful as possible.'

3. 'Kim's Givenchy dress was so elegant and beautiful. Because of the veil, I tucked her hair behind her ears and kept the look simple and elegant. It all worked well together. The whole look was very modern, chic, and different.'

4. 'I finished off the look with Living Proof Control Hairspray (a US exclusive) around the hairline — it's a stronger hairspray and I wanted to make sure that even with the veil, everything stayed in place.'

Once Kim had taken her veil off, Chris pinned back two bits of hair for a 'half up, half down' style then added a small flower from her bouquet.

And later? After a dress change - swapping her Givenchy dress for a Balmain number (oh the glamour!) - he unpinned Kim's hair and added some extra texture for an after-hours-apt look.

Kim's always been open about her love of a spray tan but if rumours are true, she took things one step further for her big day, getting sprayed in diamond dust!

St. Tropez Diamond Tan launched last year and is thought to be the world's most expensive spray tan treatment. It combines the classic tan with flecks of real diamonds and comes in at a whopping £200.

'The Diamond Tan is without a doubt the most luxurious tan possible – when performed I quite literally am spraying my clients with diamond dust!,' reveals St. Tropez's tanning expert, Jules Heptonstall.

'We created the tan for a season at Selfridges and now reserve the treatment for VIPs only. It is often requested by VIP brides for their wedding.'

'After the St. Tropez classic spray tan has developed and the skin is gorgeous and golden, I use St. Tropez Diamond Dust and lightly spray and buff onto the shoulders, the arms, the chest and the back to give an all over luminosity and glisten – it's pure luxe,' Jules explains.
