How to Get the Look

It’s time to learn the techniques. Egan has broken down Middleton’s look into a step-by-step tutorial.

  1. Start by applying a skin-tinting product to even out the tone of your skin. This will make your skin feel light and less cakey. Egan’s tip: “Apply the skin tint using your hands to warm it up and help it sink in your skin.”
  2. Blend concealer into your skin tone to make it look natural.
  3. Use a bronzer to lightly contour under your cheekbones, up to your ears, and on the top of your forehead. Then blend it with a brush.
  4. Use a small amount of liquid or cream blush on your cheekbones, and blend it up towards your ear. Leave a little bit of the blush on your apples.
  5. Brush some highlighter lightly along the tops and sides of your cheekbones. Move towards your ears.
  6. Use eyeshadow primer to your lids.
  7. Apply a neutral shade of eyeshadow that matches your skin tones (or one shade lighter), under the brows and at the inner corners of each eye. This step should be done with a matte color. Avoid anything shimmery.
  8. Use a matte shade of light pink on the eyelids and mauve, or light purple in the crease.
  9. Use black liquid eyeliner to line your upper lashes from the inner corner outwards. Use a brightly coloured eyeshadow along your lower lashline or a colored liner on your waterline.
  10. Apply two or three coats.
