LONDON – Kate Middleton has been crowned Britain’s ultimate beauty icon.
The 32-year-old Duchess’s natural allure leaves heavily made-up celebrities trailing in a new poll.
And her fresh-faced look is much desired by British women who would prefer to ditch the bronzer and bright red lipstick for clearer skin tones and nude lip shades.
Two in three rated Kate as “perfection” – with almost as many men agreeing.
She wears minimal make-up, just a hint of eye-liner and nude lips. She didn’t have a make-up artist for her wedding
Also rated in the poll on beauty habits by shopping channel QVC were singer Cheryl Cole, 30, and former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan, 27. Four out of 10 women wanted to copy Cheryl’s trademark smoky eye make-up while nearly a quarter wished they had a tan like Michelle.
Most women love being told they have great hair, a beautiful smile or an amazing complexion, the survey found.
