    Kate Middleton make-up favourites

    Kate Middleton make-up

    Generally speaking, Kate’s signature make-up look consists of groomed eyebrows, lined eyes, healthy glow to the cheeks and a nude lip. Last year’s Wimbledon appearance was one of the very, very few times we’ve seen her using a beauty product in public; namely, the classic Clarins Lip Perfector. We’d say the above looks like the equally classic shade, Rose Shimmer.
