If it’s good enough for the Duchess…
We don’t know about you, but when we hear about any of Kate Middleton’s beauty products, we instantly bookmark them. The Duchess of Cambridge always looks like a 10/10, so if there’s any chance we can emulate that glow ourselves, we’d be happy to try our luck.
There’s no doubt that her bridal look from her wedding to Prince William in 2011 will go down in the beauty history books, with Kate doing her own makeup for the big day. But the woman is almost always camera-ready, with super healthy hair and skin and classic makeup choices. Who wouldn’t want a slice 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 skin care products to Kate Middleton’s favorite perfume.
Kate Middleton’s makeup favorites
Generally speaking, Kate’s signature makeup look consists of groomed brows, lined eyes, a healthy glow to the cheeks, and nude lips. During her appearance at Wimbledon, the Duchess was seen wearing a beauty product in public; that is, the classic Clarins Natural Lip Perfector. We would say that the former resembles the equally classic shade, Rose Shimmer.

Smooth in texture with a deliciously sweet aroma. lips look bright and full, and feel soft and smooth, thanks to this Clarins lip product. Sheer, yet with enough color to wear alone or to complement your favorite lipstick shade.
As for Kate Middleton’s chosen lipstick? It’s usually Bobbi Brown’s lip color in Sandwash Pink, which she wore especially for 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 it sold out instantly). The secret of his success? Comfortable, full-coverage color that instantly gives lips a polished look.
Everyone has their favorite mascara, and the Duchess of Cambridge’s is a classic: Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara in jet black. No wonder her eye makeup looks are always so on point.

Kate Middleton skin care products
Ah, the shine of Kate Middleton. What, exactly, does she use to get that signature glowing complexion? Our mission is to discover…
Rich in vitamin C, omegas and fatty acids, this organic oil is said to have been Kate’s favorite during her pregnancies. It is believed to be a recommendation from her mother Carole de Ella, who she also loves, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Magic.
The story goes that the Duchess of Cambridge actually recommended this “natural alternative to botox” to former First Lady Michelle Obama, according to the latter’s makeup artist. Because of this, we are prepared to bathe our skin in matter.
Karin Herzog Vita A 3 Point Kombi Zapper, £35 | john and ginger
This powerful 3% oxygen formula literally pulls bacteria from the skin, like a mini vacuum. Use where needed to boost skin’s ability to heal and repair an unwanted blemish or blemish.
Have you ever seen the Duchess of Cambridge with a stain? Nope, neither do we. It’s probably because she’s apparently a big fan of Swiss beauty brand Karin Herzog, and more specifically, this blemish-removing face cream.
Kate Middleton’s Favorite Scent
Sure, we didn’t get to attend the Royal Wedding, but we can imagine what it smelled like… No, seriously, Westminster Abbey was scented with a classic Jo Malone London fragrance, the Orange Blossom candle (or several). Did you know that this fragrance is also available as a perfume, and is apparently one of Kate’s favorites.
We don’t know about you, but Kate Middleton’s favorite beauty products are making us seriously reconsider our beauty bag essentials.
