When you think of Kate Middleton, the first 3 words that come to mind are--- elegance, grace and glowing skin. Even after 3 kids, the Duchess of Cambridge still manages to maintain her gorgeous, radiant skin and ace the minimal makeup look, in-person and on-camera. Now, after the release of her latest Insta video, she’s come under the beauty spotlight once again, this time, it is for her unmissable on-fleek glowing skin. So, how do we, non-royal folks achieve the same?
She may have a team of professional to help her out, but guess what? You don’t need to be a member of the royal family or have an entire beauty team to achieve beautiful skin. All you need is a strict skincare routine and the right makeup products to make you look and feel like a princess, both on and off-camera.
Since we’re still in the middle of an on-going pandemic, video-calls and virtual meetings are not cut off from our lives just yet. If you want to look as gorgeous as Kate Middleton and show off that lit-from-within-glow on camera, here’s what you need to do.
The key to getting supple, soft skin on camera is to keep it moisturised. After cleansing and toning, hydrate your skin by applying a moisturising cream or oil and massage it into the skin until it is completely absorbed. It’s important to pick a cream that suits your skin type to avoid the chances of a breakout. Those with oily skin should use water-based creams while those with dry skin type can opt for heavy formulas.
Whether you’re going for a minimalistic or maximalist makeup look, you cannot skip your primer. Primers give you a smoother canvas to work with and help you achieve a more natural look with makeup. After moisturising, make sure to use a primer to blur out any pores or fine lines.
When it comes to achieving the natural look while using foundation, the key is to use a damp beauty blender to blur it out. Just dot your face with a bit of liquid foundation and dab it with your damp beauty blender to get an even, burry finish. Remember, since you’re trying to perfect the minimalistic look, a little goes a long way. You can later use a matte bronzer to add a bit of warmth to your face.
Blush plays a key role while trying to perfect the minimal makeup look. A hint of colour on the apples of your cheeks not only creates a fake flush but also brightens up your entire face.
You will rarely see Kate Middleton with heavy eye makeup. For her, a simple black liner or mascara coated lashes is enough to complete her entire look. To recreate her makeup look, you’ll need to keep your eyeshadow palette aside and only make use of your mascara and eyeliner.
Finally, you can’t get that lit-from-within-glow without a highlighter. This is crucial in nailing Kate Middleton's video makeup look. Dab a bit of highlighter on the cheekbones, Cupid's bow and a bit on your brow bones to get that princess-like radiant finish.
Go on, look and feel gorgeous just like Kate Middleton for your next virtual meeting.
