Look Like Royalty, Not Raccoons

So how do I get gorgeous eyes like Kate Middleton?  Thank you paparazzi for snapping this not so flattering but quite informative photo.  Now we can copy her look in 4 simple steps!

Step 1: She loves her some eyeliner! Choose a black, dark brown or even navy and make a fairly thick line across the top and a thinner line across the bottom.  Do I need to stress how important it is to choose one that doesn't smudge?  We are going for looking like royalty, not raccoons, here!

Step 2: Sweep a light neutral shadow at the brow bone. Use a medium brown across the lid. Blend well.

Step 3:  Use a quality mascara to lengthen and darken your lashes. Invest in a mascara that will not smudge, flake or run.  (See the raccoon rule in step 1)

Step 4: With gentle, short, light strokes, fill in your brows with your favorite liner or powder.


  1. I love the title of your post!!

    Nothing is more disappointing that seeing someone really taking the time to give some attention to their eyes - but failing. Young women, especially, need to read this!

    Thanks for the great tips, Jackie!

  2. I'm so glad you didn't pick Camilla.

    Great advice!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
