I'll admit, like everyone else in the world, I have a bit of a girl crush on Kate Middleton. Who doesn't want to be a princess? I admire the way she stepped almost seamlessly into the role of royalty, yet is still very relateable. In three days the world will be celebrating the first anniversary of the royal couple so I rounded up some of Kate's favorite beauty products. Yes, she really uses these things, so I guess you can call them princess approved. Heaven Bee Venom Mask - given to Kate right after her engagement by the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, the claim is that it's a "natural alternative to Botox," but like synthetic snake venom (which is common in skincare), the bee venom works to temporarily freeze facial muscles for immediate tightening and lifting. Kate also had a Bee Venom Facial with Heaven Skin Care Founder, Deborah Mitchell right before her wedding.
NIVEA Pure and Natural Day Cream - throughout the year Kate was spotted at Boots on Kings Road in London purchasing this cream. This shows the princess not only mixes highs and lows in fashion, but also with her beauty buys!
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics - right before her wedding she was seen purchasing the brand's eye and face makeup. Remember, Kate did her own wedding makeup, and kept her look natural accentuating her features. Bobbi Brown is known for helping you create the best version of yourself, which is perfect for brides.
Karin Herzog Skin Care - This UK brand is a cult favorite to many celebs. The managing director for the brand, Julie Cichocki, clarified that Kate's a regular user of the Professional Cleanser, Vita-A-Kombi 1, Vita-A-Kombi 3 Spot Zapper and the Oxygen Face Cream.
Kerastase Treatments - Her long time hairdresser, Richard Ward, treats Kate's tresses with Kerastase Rituals, which are their in-salon treatments, but Kerastase deep conditioners are available for purchase and you can do your treatment at home.
