Kate Middleton uses the minimum makeup and always looks perfect. She knows exactly what suits her and sticks to a natural palette, neutral glossy lips and dramatic eyes.
If you want to look like her, here are the steps for Kate Middleton’s makeup:
1 Eye shadow. Apply a dark brown shadow across the top of the eyelid, blending it away softly into the socket area.
2 Eye liner. The secret to getting Kate’s dramatic eyes is the eyeliner along the lash line at the top and bottom. Start at the top and draw your pencil outwards from the centre. Kate tends to use dark brown eyeliner for natural look.
3 Skin. Having nice complexion, she enhances it with minimal foundation. For an even base like Kate’s, apply a foundation primer which will help the foundation base coat to be applied more evenly and smoothly.
4 Cheeks. Use a golden apricot or very sheer salmon colored blush.
5 Lips. They are pretty and understated. Use lip gloss.
6 Lashes. Focus on the top lash line. Curl, mascara, repeat. Just darken the bottom lashes…don’t thicken or try to have them draw focus.
7 Brows. She has terrific brows but a little definition would be nice. Just a little pencil or powder a shade lighter than the brow hairs to give a shadow of definition.

Eyebrows fashion trends for 2012.
Liz Taylor eyebrows are definitely having a moment of fame on the 2012 runways. At Altuzarra (the center photo), lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux created a combination of MAC Smolder Eye Kohl and Carbon Eye Shadow to create a “strong but feminine” shape that hit thickest at the arch and then tapered a few inches past the outer corners. At Derek Lam (left photo), Pecheux accentuated hefty hedges with a swipe of yellow-toned eye shadow and copper mascara, while at LAMB, makeup is done by Maybelline Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer using eye pencil and pale natural lips. All of the presented makeup looks are with bold and confidant eyebrows.

Makeup trends that celebrities go for. Emma Watson’s makeup highlight is the smoky, golden eye make up. Emma’s darkly shadowed eyes go beyond smoky, they are golden too. While the smattering of gold leaf at the outer corners gives the makeup an appropriate sprinkling of magic, the charcoal and black. Emma’s makeup artist has not held back on black – she has built this makeup with layers of charcoal eye shadow, black eyeliner and lashings of black mascara, then allowed the gold pigment to bring it all to life. The accent goes on the eyes, the rest is just a neutral lip gloss and touch of blusher.
