Kate Middleton's Chic Mascara — Get The Look!

If there was such a thing as classy mascara, Kate would be the poster girl for the look.

Wacky, wild spider-like lashes are really fun to try for a night out, but Kate Middleton keeps her mascara simple, dark and clean. For mascara that really separates and extends lashes without making them sloppy or unnatural, try COVERGIRL’s LashPerfection Mascara.

I think there’s a time and place for Kardashian-esque eyelashes, but for a neat and clean lash look, stick to a tidier mascara. I love that I can sweep on lash perfection for the office and pile on a few more coats for an evening event. The small bristles on the wand allow you to get to every lash without creating a simple clump. To get Kate’s super-dark eye look, go for the shade Very Black.

At a recent event, COVERGIRL celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey shared his trick for getting every single lash. He takes any sort of sturdy card (a business card would work) and gently set it right above the top lash line, where you would normally apply eyeliner on your top lid. Then he pulls very lightly upwards to lift the lashes and wiggles the wand throughly through.
