Kate Middleton Gives Us a Perfectly Imperfect Valentine's Day Beauty Look
Everyone's favourite royal, Kate Middleton, has just stepped out in London for The Portrait Gala 2014 — and, damn, the Duchess is looking fine. We've gotten used to Kate's tried-and-true beauty look, so we were pretty excited to see her try something different here.
Usually opting for large-barrel waves, Kate's stepped things up with a higher-intensity curl that starts to drop just around her jawline. The upper half of her hair remains quite flat and untouched, lending a tousled, easy feel to the overall 'do — which is exactly what we like about it. We're so used to her immaculate grooming that this imperfect look just seems so sexy and sultry. It's the perfect vibe for Valentine's Day: you're keen to impress, but you definitely don't want to look like you're trying too hard.
Kate didn't stick to formula with her eye makeup either, swapping her regular day-time smoky for a bolder one. To complement her forest green dress, Kate's added a subtle hint of the same colour in amongst the charcoal shadows, and doubled up on the liner. The eyeshadow extends further up her eyelid than usual, making it a) more noticeable and b) totally alluring. Imagine this look atop your pretty Valentine's Day dress — aren't you knocking your own socks off? It's beauty fit for a future queen, but so easy to take and make your own.
