Get the look: royally ravishing like Kate Middleton
It’s been a year since the biggest wedding the world has ever seen - the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Can you believe a whole 12 months have passed since the unveiling of her Alexander McQueen gown, ‘that hat’ Princess Beatrice wore and the celebration of Pippa’s behind?
No, neither can we.
Which is why we thought we would honour Kate’s first year as a duchess by celebrating her best hair and make-up looks (and even spilling a few secrets so you can get her look, too!)
Get Kate’s hair:
The brains at L’Oreal Paris have come up with a hair colour that they think is perfect for achieving Kate Middleton’s creamy, dreamy chocolate locks.
L’Oreal Paris Healthy Look Crème Gloss Colour in shade 4AR — a.k.a. Cool Chestnut Brown — isn’t available in Australia, but we recommend L’Oreal Paris Casting Crème Gloss in 412 – Iced Cocoa, as it’s just as scrumptious.
If you do want to rock this regal look, don’t forget that a perfect blow-dry with rounded, flicky ends is essential. So keep a round brush (like Elite Round Brush with 100% boar bristles) close by at all times.
Get Kate’s make-up:
Kate Middleton is a firm believer in the ‘lips or eyes’ make-up mantra. You’ll never see her donning a red lip and a dark eye at the same time: she prefers to focus on one or the other. To get Kate’s lined eye and nude lip combo, why not try Maybelline New York Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner over the top and lower lash lines, and then a sweep of Rimmel London Royal Gloss in Cookie over your pout for a supremely shiny, nourished set of kissers.
