If it’s good enough for the Duchess …
We don’t know about you, but when we get our hands on some Kate Middleton beauty products, we immediately tag them. The Duchess of Cambridge always looks like a 10/10, so if there’s any chance we can replicate that glow ourselves, we’d love to try our luck.
There is no doubt that her bridal look from her wedding to Prince William in 2011. will go down in the beauty history books, and Kate did her own makeup for the big day. But the woman is almost always ready for the camera, has extremely healthy hair and skin, and chooses classic makeup. Who wouldn’t want a piece of that for themselves?
So without further ado, read on for the beauty products that are lucky enough to have the royal seal of approval, from skincare to Kate Middleton’s favorite perfume.
Kate Middleton Makeup Favorites
Generally speaking, Kate’s signature makeup look consists of groomed brows, lined eyes, a healthy glow to her cheeks and a nude lip. During her appearance at Wimbledon, we rarely saw the Duchess using a beauty product in public; namely the classic Clarins Natural Lip Perfector. We’d say the above looks like an equally classic shade, Rose Shimmer.
As for Kate Middleton’s lipstick of choice? It’s usually Bobbi Brown’s lip color in Sandwash Pink, which she wore to the royal wedding.
Bobbi Brown Lip Color, £ 26 | Fenwick
The bestseller that started it all, Bobbi Brown’s iconic creamy, semi-matte lipstick was the first formula to launch (and sell out instantly). The secret to his success? A comfortable, full-coverage color that gives lips an instant shine.
Everyone has their favorite mascara, and the Duchess of Cambridge’s mascara is a classic, Lancôme’s Hypnôse Mascara in black. No wonder her eye makeup is always so spot on.
Kate Middleton hair products
We’re all the envy of that obsession, and when you look at Kate Middleton’s hair, it’s no wonder so many people use her as a point of reference in the barber’s chair. So what does she look like behind those shiny, glossy locks?
According to Alur, if you want K-Middy hair, this is the Kérastase duo you are looking for, as the Duchess is reportedly a fan of Bain Satin Shampoo and the conditioner that comes with it. This is not surprising as so many celebrities advertise this brand as their favorite hair care product – Millie Mackintosh, Mollie King and Tess Daly.
Kate Middleton skin care products
Ah, the Kate Middleton glow. What exactly does she use to get such a glowing complexion? We have made it our mission to find out…
This organic oil, rich in vitamin C, omega and fatty acids, is said to have been Kate’s favorite throughout her pregnancy. It is believed that this is the recommendation of her mother Carole, who also likes it, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Magic.
According to the latter, the Duchess of Cambridge actually recommended this “natural alternative to botox” to her former first lady, Michelle Obama. For this reason, we are ready to bathe our skin with objects.
Karin Herzog Vita A Kombi 3 Spot Zapper, £ 35 | John and Ginger
This powerful 3% oxygen formula literally removes bacteria from the skin like a mini vacuum. Use it wherever needed to increase the skin’s ability to heal and repair unwanted blemish or stain.
Have you ever seen the place of the Duchess of Cambridge? No, we don’t either. This is probably due to the fact that she is apparently a big fan of the Swiss beauty brand Karin Herzog and, more specifically, of this anti-blemish face cream.
Kate Middleton’s favorite scent
Of course, we couldn’t attend the royal wedding, but we can imagine how it smelled… No really, Westminster Abbey was scented with the classic Jo Malone London scent, an Orange Blossom candle (or several). Did you know that this scent is also available as a perfume, and apparently it’s one of Kate’s favorites.
We don’t know how you are, but Kate Middleton’s favorite beauty products are seriously forcing us to rethink the basics of a beauty bag.
