After the initial enthusiasm and primal joy of meeting Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge, the world started to dish on her style and makeup. Normal, you’d say. I agree. However, some comments and observations seem to be pertinent, regardless of my admiration for her wedding moment, truly royal, and for her wanting to keep it real by doing her own makeup.
Dame Vivienne Westwood, a great authority and talent in the fashion game is the last to have objected to Kate’s heavy black eyeliner, saying that “…The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.“
Dame Viv isn’t the first one who made a remark about the Duchess’ makeup habits, Viktor and Rolf, the highly esteemed Dutch fashion power duo counseled Kate to try “…different make-up and hair – less eyeliner, less hair. It would bring out her natural beauty.”
Having seen the Duchess and her makeup ways (or her clothing style), what’s your take on her eyes makeup? Too much? Do you think she should take it easier on the black liner? (do you think she even cares what the fashion people say? I admit I admire her for solely mastering the eyeliner technique at such an amazing level!) (it’s hard to talk about anything less British these days, with the world’s eyes on London, so indulge me in this UK overload. Waves of unnecessary violence have hit the old continent this summer and my heart, barely recovering from the Norway tragedy, now face the London sorrow – sad, sad face) (photos via 1, 2)
