Who isn't jealous of Kate Middleton's look? The Duchess of Cambridge always happens to look flawless and classy, despite being in the public eye 24/7. While this royal does have a professional beauty team, she often chooses to do her own makeup. Now you can channel your inner duchess as we reveal the 11 essentials of Kate's flawless style.

Skin Care First

Kate Middletown isn't flawless, sadly, but her skin seems to be. Though she does splurge on fancy products, you don't need to. Focus on creating and maintaining a day and night skincare routine to keep your skin happy and young.

Soft Smoky

The smoky eye isn't just for a big night out on the town anymore. Kate likes to sport the look for every occasion. The trick is to keep it soft and subtle. Try shades of gold and brown for a sultry look that isn't too dramatic.

Less Is More
Less Is More

Kate always looks fresh-faced and young due to her, or her stylist's, modest touch. She shows that one doesn't need an abundance of makeup to look like a star. Try a lightweight foundation, a little concealer (if needed), and an illuminating setting powder for a beautifully, natural look.

Nailed It

She keeps her nails well groomed. You don't need to spend the big bucks on a professional manicure, but making an effort to maintain clean nails will speak volumes for your class. A simple, nude mani can turn as many heads as a bright one.

Don't Be Afraid To Ignore The Trends

Trends come and go, and no one seems to know this better than Kate. She has found a look she loves and she is sticking to it: soft curls with a simple smoky eye. Experimenting with what's new can be a lot of fun, but if you're happy with your look, stand your ground.

Hair Accessories Are Everything

Not in love with your look? Need a little boost of confidence? Enter hair accessory. It can easily brighten and change your whole look. Don't worry though; your choice doesn't have to be as big as Kate's.

We might not all have that pregnancy glow, but we can still jot down a few notes. Keep things simple. A subtle rosy, highlighted cheek will do wonders. Do not over do it. I repeat, do not overdo it!

Try Something New, And Simple

If you are getting a little bored of your style, you don't always need to do an extreme makeover to feel new. When Kate switched up her off-center parted hair with a mid-part, we noticed. You don't need a drastic change to make a big difference.

Embrace Your Brows
Embrace Your Brows

Kate keeps her strong brows polished, but full. Eyebrows frame your face and balance out your features. Over-tweezing not only makes your eyes appear smaller, but it messes with the proportions of your face. Take a lesson from Kate and embrace the shape of your natural brows.

Be Bright

While Kate might keep her makeup simple, her clothing is usually more expressive. She proves that bright, bold colors can also be classy. Try a red blazer, a green coat, or a yellow top, anything that makes you happy. Don't shy away from color. Be bright!

Emphasize One Feature
Emphasize One Feature

The rule that Kate lives by is to choose one facial feature to emphasize, eyes or lips. Kate loves playing up her eyes with a soft smoky eye and light eyeliner. But she keeps her lips light with a little pink gloss.
