The Super Smart/Sneaky Way Queen Letizia Does Her Eye Makeup

Bow down.

They haven't made a 100 Years of European Royal Beauty in 1 Minute video yet (submitting idea now, BTW), but if they did, it would be like nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, Princess Diana, Kate Middleton's eyeliner, QUEEN LETIZIA OF SPAIN.

(At least, I imagine I would think that if I were the president of Peru attending a reception in my honor, which is where this photo is from.)
