We tried Kate Middleton’s secret smokey eye makeup – watch our step-by-step video

For the second look, we picked Kate Middleton‘s appearance at the 2018 BAFTAs. Looking particularly regal, the brunette beauty glowed in her forest green dress by Jenny Packham and co-ordinating emeralds.

This look is classic glam Kate; she sported her signature bouncy blowdry which was full and voluminous. Kate’s complexion was even more glowing than usual and she looked so fresh and dewy, sporting subtle pink cheeks and a rosy pink lip colour. Her eye makeup was very dramatic and daring. She rocked a delicate but statement dark brown smokey eye with black eyeliner in the waterline, lashings of mascara and a bold brow, and finished with rosy pink lips.

The eye makeup was really key to this look and extra time was spent to perfect the show-stopping smoky eye featuring a hint of khaki green. Fortunato used ‘Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner #02’ and #06 all over the lid and also in the waterline for maximum smoky impact.

The face was primed using ‘La Base Pro’  and the foundation of choice was ‘Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation’. ‘Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer’ was used to cover dark circles, peachy blusher known as ‘Teint Idole Ultra Wear Blush Stick in #02 Daring Peach’ was lightly applied to the apples of the cheeks. A light highlighter ‘Teint Idole Ultra Wear Highlighter Stick in #01 Vibrant Lilac’ was added  on the brow bone and at the top of the cheekbones. Fortunato ensured the base was budge-proof yet still dewy.

Kate’s lip was a little stronger in this look, so Fortunato used the ‘L’Absolu Rouge Cream in shade #250’ and a little and ‘Absolue Lip Balm‘ for a glossy pout. Mwah!

The most important part of this ensemble was the stunning green necklace by Bulgari which featured emerald sapphires and breathtaking diamonds.
