When Kate Middleton because the Duchess of Cambridge, it was widely reported that the Bride did her own make up for the day, after taking some make up lessons.
I am actually all for this – unless someone stupendous ends up doing my bridal make up, I’d much rather do it myself rather than pay for an average job.
There was one thing people picked up on when it came to Kate Middleton’s bridal make up – her dark eyeliner. Some people felt it was too heavy for a bridal look – and it was quite dark and heavy but I firmly believe people should express themselves on their big day! (Remember Catherine Zeta Jones’ wedding day make up? It was very dark eyes indeed).
Anyway, Dame Vivienne Westwood has said to the Sunday Times Magazine that, ‘I think she’s [Kate Middleton] got a problem with eye make-up. The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.”
I love Vivienne Westwood, but I have a huge soft spot for Kate Middleton too – I do think her eyeliner is very bold, but hey, I totally sympathise. I’ve toned it down a lot more recently but there was a time when I wouldn’t leave the house without a thick inky black line all around my eye like a panda – POW POW! (That’s my Kung Fu Panda impression). If it makes her happy, why not?!
So what do you think?
