We lift the lid on the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite beauty products
.Kate Middleton’s beauty secrets remain a mystery to many…but we’ve got some insider info!
The Duchess of Cambridge is never out of the spotlight. So, she needs hair that won’t go limp and beauty products that keep her looking polished and pristine from morning to night.
Kate seems to nail that naturally beautiful look every time. Whether it’s that super glossy blow dry that screams healthy hair, the subtle smokey eye that’s never too over-done, and the barely-there touch of blush that finishes off her classic English Rose look.
Although she may have a make-up artist for big events these days, the Duchess is known to have done her own makeup on her wedding day! The products in her makeup bag? Her favourites are listed below!
From her favourite moisturiser to her wedding perfume, we delve into Kate Middleton’s beauty bag secrets. And guess what, there’s lots of high street buys in there! It seems that the Duchess has been sharing her secrets with other ladies in the public eye too.
None other than Michelle Obama revealed that Kate shared some beauty tips and tricks with her. Apparently they exchanged tips when the Obamas last visited the UK. We would have loved to be involved in that beauty gossip!

Another one of Kate recommendations to Michelle Obama, the Duchess swears by this non-injectable organic botox gel for her signature youthful glow! Anti-ageing tips from Kate? We’ll take two!
Lancome Hydra Zen
Stressed skin looks dull, sallow and is more prone to breakouts. Lancome Hydra Zen SPF 15 helps soothe skin while giving it some intense hydration throughout the day, making it the perfect skin saviour for women on the go.
Want the secret to Kate’s flawless skin? Try applying 2-3 drops of healing rose hip oil on to your skin each evening to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The Duchess is said to be a big fan.
Kate swears by Xen-Tan’s Signature Spray Tan to maintain her gorgeous olive glow. Giving her skin a healthy, natural finish, it means that she never has to worry about her legs looking pale and pasty.
Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi 3 Spotzapper,
We’ve never seen Kate Middleton with a spot and we probably never will. She raves about Swiss skincare brand Karin Herzog to keep her complexion clear favouring the Vita-A-Kombi 3 Spotzapper.
Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Moisturising Day Cream,
Kate was spotted stocking up on Nivea Visage’s Pure & Natural Moisturising Day Cream to ensure her skin stays soft and supple without any greasiness.
Essie Nail Polish in Allure, £7.99.
Like her hubbie’s Grandmother (the Queen!), Kate Middleton loves Essie nail polishes. Sticking to a sophisticated neutral palette, the dusky pale pink shade, Allure, is her go-to colour.
Deborah Mitchell Heaven Bee Venom Mask,
She might only be 30 but Kate Middleton is already taking action to stop wrinkles with Deborah Mitchell’s Heaven Bee Venom Mask. Containing actual bee venom, it gently encourages the skin to tighten – filling in fine lines.
Lancôme Hypnose Mascara, £22.50, and Artliner,
Kate Middleton’s eye make-up always gets people talking. Since her wedding she’s toned down her black eyeliner and now relies on Lancôme’s Hypnôse mascara, £21 and Artliner, £20 – a velvety black liner – to create her signature stare.
Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Saddle,
Kate’s face-framing brows are her prize possession. Maintaining them with regular shaping sessions, she then shades in any gaps using Bobbi Brown’s Eye Shadow in Saddle.
Touche Éclat Radiant Touch,
The Duchess of Cambridge divides her time between evening events and early mornings, so she needs a product she can rely on to hide dark circles. The answer? YSL’s iconic concealer – Touche Éclat Radiant Touch that leaves her looking bright-eyed.
Illuminum White Gardenia Petals, £100
A pretty blend of lily, jasmine and amber, Illuminum’s White Gardenia Petals fragrance shot to fame when Kate chose to wear it on her wedding day to Prince William in 2011.
