The Duchess of Cambridge Tops This Week's Best Beauty Looks
The Duchess of Cambridge is a busy woman. We know she's a big fan of doing her own makeup, so we have to imagine that when she makes one of her multiple public appearances, she's looking to get the most out of her time at the vanity. Case in point: her smoky eye. It's sophisticated, pretty, and "done," but you can achieve it in less than 15 seconds: perfect for when you're headed to a Christmas party postwork with little time to spare. Trace a black liner over your upper and lower lash lines — Kate likes Bobbi Brown, so try the brand's Long-Wear Eye Pencil in Jet (£15) — then smudge before the colour sets using a cotton swab or your finger. After a few seconds, your easy smoky eye will be completely budge-proof, so you can dance the night away without fear of looking like a wet raccoon.
