If you happen to be a Royal who lives as glamorous a life as the Duchess of Cambridge, then naturally everything about you comes under a microscope, including your eyebrows.
|Duchess Kate's famed 'Scouse brows'|
For some time now the Duchess Catherine who earlier had trimmed thin eyebrows has been seen sporting fully defined eyebrows. Kate having dark lush brows dubbed the ‘Scouse brows’ has resulted in most women all over the country trotting off to the nearest brow bar in a bid to emulate their future queen.
Rumors have been making the rounds whether Kate’s eyebrows have been tinted or tattooed or threaded or tweezed and tidied to perfection. Well, it is none of these actually, as the secret of Kate Middleton’s trademark ‘Scouse brows’ have now been revealed.
The famously ‘thrifty’ spouse of Prince William is said to shell out a modest £15.50 for an eye-shadow powder to attain the thick bushy look. Duchess Kate has gone for swapping eye pencils for eye-shadows, a new beauty trend that several fashion bloggers had been advocating much earlier.
Catherine is a regular visitor to make-up artist Bobbi Brown’s counter at the Peter Jones store in Sloane Square, London. She has learnt to use their eye-shadows’ as a natural looking eyebrow filler.
Apparently, Kate has for long been worried about her sparse, slightly fair and patchy eye-brows. The staff at Bobbi Brown then showed her how to apply a deep brown shadow shade called ‘saddle’ with a slanted make-up brush to ‘fill in’ her sparse brows.
Duchess Kate is said to be thrilled with her new Look believing that the thick brow frames her face, making her small eyes to stand out. But, despite her happiness with her more luxuriant brows, there has been mixed reaction to it from the public.
Some opine that the makeover has left her brows too heavy for her face, while others have compared her to the cast of the reality show - The Only Way Is Essex emulating the infamous dark, bold ‘Scouse brow’ sported by Coleen Rooney and other stars of the series.
Duchess Kate has purchased an £18 lipstick called 'sandwich tulle' from the affordable cosmetics range, and even invested in a top secret 'three step' anti-wrinkle set. This contains a £28 eye cream, a £17 facial corrector and a £23 pot of concealer. The total cost of which is said to be £116.50.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail quoting an insider said: ‘In her position she has to look good and can’t be seen at posh events touching up her make-up … She said she has a lot of events coming up and wanted to look her best during a big tour of the South Pacific she has later this year.’
