"People are obsessed with her head-to-toe look, but her eyes are so amazing, so I like pulling them out," the beauty guru told E! News. 

The first step is to volumize the lashes. "I have a double-ended mascara that's one of my favorite things of all time," said the makeup artist and founder of Lash Star Beauty. "It has a finer brush that gets baby lashes, and the second brush is a lash builder."

To finish things off, bring on the heat. "As a final touch, there's a great USB-heated eyelash curler from Lash set lash hairs in place," recommended Tracy. Insider tip: Kate also uses this product on stubborn brow hair. 

What are some of Kate's other favorite products? "Shimmer Brick, which is something I use every day," said the model. "And Tammy Fender [skin care]. We put it on our face after three hours of sleep, and we got compliments that our skin was glowing." The beauty also always has eye drops around for her contacts. 


Loved this look? We may see it on Kate again, as the soon-to-be-married star called her latest glam session "like a test for a wedding."
