Ever asked yourself what products the Duchess of Cambridge keeps in her beauty line-up to achieve such flawless skin? Or what hair products she uses to maintain her glossy brunette hair?

From her day-to-day favourites to the make-up she used for her wedding day, we reveal what’s rumoured to be inside Duchess Catherine’s beauty bag.

Clarins

Clarins lip balm

In 2019, Kate was spotted at the Wimbledon tournament applying this glossy Clarins lip balm. The revelation was no less glorious when we discovered the product is not only readily available, but it’s also not too expensive. Royal worthy lips will set you back just $33, it seems – oh and Kate uses the rose shimmer variation, FYI.

Natural Lip Perfector, $33.00, Clarins.

Trilogy

KM_TRILOGY

Two words: complexion perfection. This Royal has been rumoured to slather Trilogy Rose Hip on her skin.

Pressed from the fruit of the rose plant, the genius oil is full of essential fatty acids (for hydrating and skin plumping) and vitamin A (for anti-ageing), vitamin C (for brightening) and vitamin E (for moisturising and smoothing). With that combination, it’s no wonder the Duchess’s skin is so radiant.

Trilogy Rosehip Oil, $22.99, Chemist Warehouse.

Kerastase

Kate is constantly tressed to impress and, as reported by PopSugar, it’s down to this Kerastase Bain Satin 2 along with conditioner and hair masks.

Nutritive Bain Satin 2 Shampoo, $46.00, Adore Beauty.

Mecca

KM_URBAN DECAY

According to sources, Kate credits her shimmery neutral lids to Urban Decay’s palates.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette, $83.00, Mecca.

The Iconic

Kmart

Duchess Catherine’s beauty routine includes cleansing with a soft cotton face washer which, according to her makeup artist Arabella Preston, is the secret to gently exfoliating skin while properly removing makeup and dirt. Use with an oil cleanser for a deeper clean, without stripping your skin.

Waffle Towel Face Washer, $16.00, The Iconic.

Aesthetikonzept

Organic Botox Michelle Obama Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge and the former First Lady Michelle Obama have a lot in common: they’re both powerful, beautiful and look fresh thanks to this organic botox gel. “Michelle Obama has been using this organic botox gel regularly on the recommendation of Kate Middleton,” the former First Lady’s make-up artist, Carl Ray, told Celebrities Style, adding that the product is “unbelievable for erasing wrinkles.”

Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel, $119.00, Aesthetikonzept.

Amazon

KM_ESSIE

Catherine is a true natural beauty – and she has a manicure regimen to match. While she is predisposed to a “60-minute Royal manicure”, her manicurist, Marina Sandoval used Essie’s Nail Lacquer in Allure back in 2011.

Essie Nail Polish Allure, $14.95, Amazon.

Vital Skin Care

KM_KARIN HERZOG

Kate is said to swear by Karin Herzog Oxygen Face Cream, Mild Scrub and Professional Cleanser pack, having used this Swiss beauty range for years.

Mild Scrub, Professional Cleanser & Free Oxygen Face Cream, $135.00, Vital Skin Care.

Mecca

KM_LAURA MERCIER

It’s said that her Royal Highness calls on Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturiser for a natural, unblemished finish.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector, $67.00, Mecca.

Adore Beauty

KM_BOBBI BROWN

While sources have said she gets a weekly St. Tropez spray tan, during her pregnancy with Princess Charlotte, Kate opted for Bobbi Brown’s DHA-free Bronze Shimmer Brick to give her cheeks that all-year-round summer glow.

Bobbi Brown’s DHA-free Bronze Shimmer Brick, $80.00, Adore Beauty.

KM_BOBBI BROWN EYELINER

Having been rumoured to have done her own make-up on her wedding day using Bobbi Brown products, it’s no surprise this Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eyeliner is Kate’s go-to.
