Newlywed Duchess Catherine might have worn an Alexander McQueen on her wedding day and received much acclaim for choosing a slightly ‘edgy’ British brand, but her penchant for heavy black liner is not loved by all.

The latest to speak about the new royal’s make-up choices is grande Dame of British fashion, Vivienne Westwood who told the Sunday Times Magazine: ‘I think she’s got a problem with eye make-up. The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.’

Westwood moved on to call Kate’s image ‘ordinary’. We can’t think of anything worse than to be called ordinary – especially not by someone like Vivienne who certainly knows a thing or two about fashion and style.

It appears that many would like to see Kate wear different make-up and hair, with fashion duo Viktor & Rolf expressing the same sentiments not long ago.

As we’ve said before we’d love to see Kate with a flirty 50’s flick with just a hint of eyeliner on the lower lash line.

Should Kate ditch her strong eyeliner that has become her security blanket and try out different styles to let her natural beauty shine through? Let us know in the comments below what beauty style you think Kate should adopt!
