But I’m not sure I’m the right audience to understand these makeup nuances and their social implications. The extent of my makeup collection is chap stick during the winter. So to me it all seems very inconsequential, especially when enforcing individual beauty standards on other people.
I am somewhat at a loss to understand why you find it necessary to resort to sarcasm and attacking other members posts when you do not agree with their stance.

Debating the merits of Catherine's fashion choices is what this thread is all about . . . clothes, accessories, makeup and hair. If you find such topics so "very inconsequential", might I suggest that you are on the wrong thread.

As I stated in my last post, I did not like her ensemble at all and, reading the comments about her makeup being outdated, find myself in agreement. That is just my opinion and that is what we share here.

I"ll agree on outdated, my definition for it would be too accentuated, especially the eyebrows, almost clownish, with rouge bar on the cheeks and too much eyeliner, like the women in the 80s did (Dynasty etc)

The blouse and skirt combo was very nice and she looked like a standard elementary school teacher on picture day; appropriate sweet and fun.

Royal Hats has links to the five other occasions the DoC has worn this hat. Not so keen on brown and black but the other combos seem great....but then I'm a fan of this hat.

Not a fan of a pill box period, IMO not a good look on most if not all people. But I could deal with hers without the huge bow on the side. It looked best with the brown Christmas outfit.

Kate champions new Scottish brand in tweed kilt on trip to Edinburgh

'My grandmother is over the moon': Duchess of Cambridge's Le Kilt designer on dressing a royal - Telegraph Fashion

The Duchess of Cambridge is visiting Edinburgh today, where she has a number of royal engagements including a tennis workshop with Andy Murray's mother, Judy Murray. The 34-year-old nearly always taps into the heritage of the place she is visiting with her outfit, so it's not surprising that she is wearing a kilt to her first appointment of the day.

But what is perhaps more surprising is the label she looked to for said kilt: she picked a classic grey houndstooth long skirt by emerging London Fashion Week label with a Scottish heritage, Le Kilt. The 100% British wool skirt, with leather side buckles and a Kilt pin, is currently available for £470 on Le Kilt's website.

... Designer Samantha McCoach said to The Telegraph about Kate wearing one of her pieces: "It feels great, it's fantastic to see the Duchess is supporting young new brands." She added: "This is amazing! I work with a lot of 'made in UK' workshops and factories, as well as British manufacturing and this is a huge support."

A simple and yet sophisticated look for this event. Good to see a Scottish brand being worn today.

I quite like this outfit, especially the skirt. The green jacket is a nice touch. I also love she is wearing a Scottish designer.

Catherine's look for the engagement in Scotland was absolutely lovely. The outfit was appropriate, but also simple enough to help her blend in.
