Kate’s look is all about glossy lips, bold brows and a natural eye. To achieve our cover girl’s look, start by prepping your face and neck with Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer. The trick is to buff the product into skin using your fingers. It will give you a gorgeous base and will keep your foundation looking smooth and flawless all day long!

Next lightly apply Make Up For Ever’s HD foundation all over your face with a foundation brush. It will give you a medium to full coverage, so remember to blend well around your jawline and forehead and to blend into your neck. To conceal any unevenness or blemishes, use Guerlain’s Blanc de Perle Corrector which helps to give a flawless skin finish.

Next use the lightest colour from Urban Decay’s Brow Box and highlight along your brow bone, the bridge of your nose and your Cupid’s bow. Go on to take an angled brush and select one of the darker colours from the same Brow Box and begin to shape your brows to achieve a fuller and bolder brow like Kate’s.

Moving on to the eyes, line your lid with Gucci’s Eye Power Liquid. Remember to take the liner right to the very inner corner of your eye to achieve Kate’s elongated almond shaped eye! Take the same liner and line your lower lash line too. Next take Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick Highlighter and use the lightest colour to highlight the inner corner of your eye as well as your cheekbones.

Finish off the eyes with lashings of black mascara - we love Mikyajy 22K Playful False Lash Mascara which gives the perfect amount of volume and length.

To give you a natural, flushed look - pat Tom Ford’s Blush in Love Lust on the apples of your cheeks. Finish off by applying a pinky nude lip colour. We recommend Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss lipstick in Fall in Rose which is perfect for all skin tones and its subtle sheen will help give you a picture perfect pout whilst keeping your lips glossy and hydrated throughout the day.

To get Kate’s natural waves, use Maria Dowling’s curling wand. Section your hair into medium size sections then curl the hair around the wand and hold for five seconds, release slowly and continue with other sections till all sections are curled.
