Karin Herzog Oxygen Face ($65)
According to the brand, Kate's aesthetician uses Karin Herzog products on her skin—the oxygen line contains high concentrations of oxygen to penetrate the skin—to create her coveted glowing complexion and eliminate any toxins.
Famous for doing her own makeup (even on her wedding day!), the Princess reportedly reached for this cult-favorite eye shadow palette for all of her shadow needs. Ranging from must-have neutral shades to more vibrant hues to complement them, this palette is at the heart of our beauty arsenals, too.
An insider source (as told to US Weekly) reported that when Kate was pregnant, she put a halt on her weekly St. Tropez spray tans and opted for a baby-safe option instead—this shimmer brick from Bobbi Brown that is sure to impart a post-vacation glow to every face without being overly shimmery.
NARS Blush in Orgasm ($30)
Although it sure seems like it, the Princess’s blushing cheeks don’t come naturally, and it’s no surprise to us that she counts on this iconic shade from NARS and its silky texture to provide it. Even the lightest sweep of this blush delivers the most natural-looking finish.
Photographed virtually everywhere she goes, Kate knows the importance of a great mascara to complete any look. She is reportedly an avid user of this mascara from Lancôme, which delivers buildable volume sans any flaking or clumping.
Photographed purchasing this go-to tinted moisturizer from Laura Mercier, it’s no secret that the key to Kate’s perfect complexion is a light yet moisturizing formula to leave her (and anyone!) with a flawless finish every time.
For her youthful skin, Kate reportedly uses this mask from her (and the rest of the royal family’s) skin care specialist’s eponymous skin care line, containing a bevy of essential oils, herbs and vitamins for dramatic results.
