Kate Middleton’s Beauty Secrets

I adore Kate Middleton – I even have a pinterest board dedicated to her! She’s beautiful, stylish, easy-to-relate-to AND a Princess – what’s not to love? And being a beauty junkie – I’m especially interested in her beauty products.

As with her clothes – she uses a mix of high-end and easily accessible products. Since she has access to the best things – one would think that whatever she picks must be good. Here’s some insight into her beauty routine.

Skincare & Hair:

Kate is a loyal user of Karin Herzog products – namely their: Professional Cleanser,
Vita-A-Kombi 1 (heals blemishes, sun damage & hyperpigmentation), Vita-A-Kombi 3 Spot Zapper, and Oxygen Face Cream.  Reading the reviews for these oxygen-infused products really makes me want to try the range (source)

But along with these higher-end products (priced from $30-75) Kate also stocks up on a drugstore moisturizer: Nivea Visage Pure and Natural Moisturising Day Cream. Victoria Beckham is also a fan of Nivea Visage products. (source)

Kate gets her hair dyed with L’Oreal Symbio and Fuente Organic color, has professional Keratin treatments, and uses Kerastase Conditioning products. (source)


Along with the makeup listed below (originally posted on my blog here), Kate used YSL Touche Eclat, Lancome Hypnose Mascara & Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser on her wedding day. (source)

All over: Ivory Eyeshadow (a creamy white)
Lower lid: Rockstar Metallic Eyeshadow (a medium metallic grey)
Crease: Slate Eyeshadow (a medium grey)
Eyeliner: Black Ink Long-Wear Gel liner (a jet black)
Mascara: No SmudgeCHEEKS:Pale Pink Blush (a bright pale pink) + Pink Quartz Shimmer BrickLIPS:Sandwash Pink Lipcolor (a beige pink) + Crystal Lip Gloss(Non-Bobbi Brown products used :Nails: a custom blend which included Essie’s 423 Allure (a sheer with a natural finish) and Bourjois’ no. 28 Rose Lounge (milky pink sheer).Perfume:  White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum: described as
“the clean, fresh scent has a note of coconut bursting into ylang
ylang, lily of the valley and jasmine, with amber wood as the base
note.”  )

She was recently spotted making additional purchases at Bobbi Brown including Saddle brow powder, lipliner in Brownie Pink and lipstick in Sandwash Tulle. (source)

I have purchased the Bobbi Brown Pale Pink blush (I adore it – so bright and long-lasting) and have Sandwash Pink lipstick and Hypnose mascara next on my list to try. If it’s good enough for a Princess…..

Are you a fan of Kate Middleton? Do you own any of the products she uses?
