We all missed Kate Middleton’s adventurous green eyeliner

Even the royal isn’t opposed to a pop of colour

While the Duchess of Cambridge might not be so adventurous to try Instagram’s latest ‘floating liner’ trend, the royal wasn’t opposed to adding a pop of colour through her latest beauty look.

While touring Galway, Ireland, with her husband Prince William, Kate let the Emerald Isle’s national colour dictate her sartorial choice wearing a green polka-dotted dress and khaki coat. 

But, it’s only now we’ve realised the royal mum-of-three was also inspired by the lucky colour for her beauty look. The duchess, who regularly sticks to her black winged liner and wavy blowout, chose to mix things up with a sparkly green line just hugging the lash line. 

The look is subtle but has a huge effect. If you’re looking to add a little drama into your makeup game, we’ve rounded up some of the best green eyeliners on the market. For a fuller effect and more smudged out liner (much like Kate's) give YSL's Couture Kajal a whirl. For a more subtle approach, give REVLON's iconic ColourStay eyeliner in jade. Finally, for those after a product that's going to allow for a little more of a flick, look no further than NYX's Vivid Brights liner in muted turquoise with green undertones.
