Westwood vs Middleton!

This past week, Vivienne Westwood took a jab at Kate Middleton stating Miss Kate's fashion style is that of an "ordinary women". Besides criticizing her fashion sense, the 70 year old London based fashion designer said that the Duchess of Cambridge has a problem with eye makeup!

The story goes that for her official engagement photos, Kate was so unhappy with the job the makeup artist did on her, she went in the bathroom, washed it off and proceeded to do her own makeup for the photo shoot. She felt so confident in her makeup application skills that after a few lessons with makeup artist Arabella Preston, she decided to do her own makeup on the day of her wedding. I don't know about you but that definitely was a very brave move being her wedding was going to be seen by 2 billion people around the world! That might just be the exact reason people love her so, she does come off as an ordinary woman and not in a bad way-

Now we all know how I feel about eyeliner, however I do agree that it can make you look hard or even older if not applied properly. 

"The sharp line around her eyes makes her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none."
Miss Westwood does know a thing or two about eyeliner with all of the punk rock bands she hung out with in the 70's! Now that is a look to cover! Boys wearing eyeliner-definitely not my favorite!

Look at these Vivienne Westwood beauties!!

Rumor has it Miss Kate likes to watch the YouTube Makeup Gurus! She must not be watching me because she would know to smudge those harsh lines! What Kate should do is ditch the eyeliner on the lower lash line and instead opt for a smoky shadow like
 Little Goddess Black Amethyst Mineral Eyeshadow so she can still get the dark definition she likes without it being so harsh looking.

What do you think? Is Kate's makeup too harsh and heavy handed? Should a women of her social status hire a professional makeup artist or should everyone just leave her alone?

Dear Little Goddess,
I say let us leave her the hell alone (in the friendliest way possible). She likes what she likes. That's like telling Madonna to wear her bra under her shirt. If everyone conformed to the "shoulds" box the planet would be a boring place. I have never heard of Vivienne Westwood until now, so you see, perhaps I have some "should" advice for her: "If Vivienne, is going to design shoes, she should either make them a height that one can walk in or attatch poles to them to be used as stilts". I'm sure Vivienne would agree that I should leave her the hell alone. In which I am happy to oblige.
