Okay then.. I am not a sucker for royalty. But one thing that no one can deny is how beautifully turned out the Royal Ladies are, be it Queen Rania of Jordan, Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco or for that matter, the lady err..Duchess in question – Kate Middleton.
Seeing her in anything but an elegant ensemble is a rare sight. No matter the
place or occasion, you will never find her without the following done perfectly..
A Shiny Mane
Alright girls…people swear by K-Mid’s hair. They are always done beautifully, no matter when she’s spotted. And I personally swear by the effect a good hairdo has on your overall appearance. If you don’t wish to look like a bag-lady, better carry a comb and smoothening serum in your bag. Combs with wideset bristles generally work with most hair types and cause least breakage. Also for a quick fix, you can use a dry shampoo to get the grease out of your hair. I personally love the Sunsilk Dry Shampoo range and for adding shine,the Loreal Smoothening Serum works wonders for me. Just keep in mind to not to go overboard with products, that will only cause damage to your tresses.
Its All In The Eyes
You will never find the Duchess without her eye makeup done. She is besotted with eye makeup and we are besotted with her eyes. Eyemake up has this power to amp up your looks with least effort. Smokey eye, Cat eye, a bit of kohl, a little color, there’s so much to choose from.I love Maybelline Colossal Kajal. Its long lasting, dark and leaves you smudgefree.
In case of liquid liners, I bet on Prestige Waterproof Eyeliner. It is easy to apply and quite velvety smooth in its finish. A total win-win. Mascara is something, every eye makeup enthusiast depends on. It opens up your peepers like nothing else. My current pick for that is Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Mascara.
Many ladies love to get pampered at the salon and get their Mani-Pedis done. And its great. I totally support ladies finding ‘Me-Time’. Even better if you can take out some everyday. But for those of us who are always on the run..or just plain lazy (don’t kill me now), Kate’s personal style gives the solution- go for short and clean. Nothing looks worse than chipped nail paint and broken nails. It simply screams UNKEMPT.
Gloss It Up
Never to be found wearing too bright a shade on her lips, Kate Middleton loves nude shades. And they do her great service as she has got her eye makeup doing most of the work. Also for those of us having thin lips, its the best go to as dark shades only make them look thinner. A gloss usually adds volume to your lips. Nude shades in matte are also amazing for thin lips. Currently crushing on Gosh’s collection of Matte Lipsticks, my go to shade being 002 Matt Rose 5057.
In short, it doesn’t take much time, and just a little effort to channel your inner Duchess XOXO
