Move over Kate Moss; British Vogue has a new favourite Kate. Middleton, that is.
— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 30, 2016
The series of portraits were shot by British photographer Josh Olins in the Norfolk countryside and feature the Duchess laughing and smiling in a number of casual outfits from Burberry and Petit Bateau. (No Jenny Packham or Alexander McQueen ballgowns to see here, folks.)
While she’s still sporting her signature blowdry, we couldn’t help but feel there was something different about her makeup. (Watch: Styling tips from Kate Middleton’s hairdresser, Post continues after video.)
She’s not sporting her usual Royal eyeliner. (Gasp.)
If you’re eagle-eyed you might’ve noticed Kate basically always goes for natural-looking skin, rosy cheeks, a pinky-nude lip and of course, that soft brown smokey eye and carefully tightlined eyes.
Also known as ‘invisible eyeliner’, tightlining your eyes involves framing your eyes without the look of heavy eyeliner. (Post continues after gallery.)
Using a flat brush with gel eyeliner (or pencil if you’re in a hurry), you slightly lift up your eyelid and press and wiggle the product onto the roots of your lashes from the inner corner outwards, then curl and apply mascara as usual. (You can also find mascaras like It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara, around $38, that do the work for you.)
