Kate Middleton has been named the UK’s most influential beauty icon by online beauty retailer Feel Unique in a recent study. She beat Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Victoria Beckham to the top spot, and apparently us women are three times more likely to buy a product if it’s used by the Duchess herself. We can’t deny that Kate always looks impeccable, so we’ve found a few products that will help us on our way to getting her look.
1. Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in ‘Rose Illumination’: £19.55 at feelunique.com
This highlighter is actually the one Kate uses herself, and luckily for us it’s in a universally flattering rose gold shade. It’s really finely milled meaning it gives a subtle, shimmery glow to the tops of the cheekbones and décolletage – perfect for summer! The packaging is beautifully luxurious too, we can see why it wouldn’t look out of place on Kate’s dresser!
2. Chanel Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer in ‘Noir’: £17 at Boots
It’s no secret that Kate loves her black pencil eyeliner; she’s rarely seen without it. You could just use any old eyeliner to copy her look, but for more of a luxurious feel we definitely recommend a Chanel Precision Eye Definer. The packaging is a little more luxe than the likes of Rimmel or Bourjois, and we wouldn’t be surprised if Kate herself was a fan of Chanel’s beauty line. The best thing about this eyeliner is that it comes with a smudger and a sharpener, so you can really get that defined, yet not too harsh look that Kate seems to love.
3. Lancome Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate: £92 at Selfridges
Now Kate’s in her thirties, it’s important that she steps up her skincare to avoid those fine lines, wrinkles and general dulling of the skin that can occur as we get a little older. It’s well documented that she uses Lancome’s Youth Activating Concentrate, and at £92 the price tag is fitting for her royal status. Lancome claims the serum ‘smoothes fine lines and deep wrinkles, boosts radiance, clarifies and evens skin tone, improves skin texture, increases elasticity and tonicity, firms skin and hydrates’. Well, that’s a lot to live up to but we have to say that Kate’s skin always looks great, and if it’s down to this, then it’s worth the money!
