15 Beauty Products Kate Middleton Uses When She Wants to Look Amazing on Zoom

15 Beauty Products Kate Middleton Uses When She Wants to Look Amazing on Zoom

Kate Middleton

For over a year now, Kate Middleton has been conducting much of her royal work virtually. At the start of the lockdown in 2020, the Duchess of Cambridge would check in with her patronages via Zoom and then share the videos on Instagram. And royal fans quickly noticed that Kate Middleton’s Zoom style was flawless.

She may have only needed to dress from the waist up, but she always showed up on camera looking put together — even when she had to be her own hair and makeup stylist while her staff was social distancing. Kate is no stranger to doing her own makeup, and she reportedly did her wedding look by herself.

Over the years, we’ve learned a lot about the beauty routine that helps her stay looking so impeccable, even over video chat. Hello! magazine recently rounded up some of these go-to beauty products, and we added some others she’s reported to use as well. Maybe if we also use these 15 items we’ll look just like her? We can dream.

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

It’s not just our phone screens, Kate really is that glowy IRL. She achieves her dewy skin thanks in part to this organic rosehip oil, according to reports. She apparently first discovered the product while pregnant with Princess Charlotte, and it’s perfect for all the Zoom meetings she keeps having.

Beuti Skincare - Organic Beauty Sleep Elixir

Every good daytime skin care routine starts the night before with proper moisturizing. Before Kate hits the hay, she reportedly uses this plant-based elixir to help her wake up looking extra hydrated and refreshed. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Meghan Markle is a fan of the product as well.

Nivea Pure & Natural Day Cream

Nivea Pure & Natural Day Cream

For daytime hydration, Kate turns to this drugstore brand of moisturizer. In fact, Express reported that she’s been seen buying the product in bulk at the Boots drugstore in London. The Nivea cream contains argan oil and chamomile to soothe skin while it hydrates, and this one has been formulated for dry or sensitive skin.

Karin Herzog Oxygen Face Cream

Drugstore brands are great, but when the duchess is feeling a little on the fancier side, she reportedly turns to this expensive face cream by Karin Herzog. The product is infused with 2% oxygen to help control oil and eliminate toxins. According to Vogue, she also likes the Karin Herzog oxygen face mask.

Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Cream


Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Cream

Another moisturizer that’s likely been getting a lot of play lately? The Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress cream. Just reading that name already makes us feel more relaxed. Express reported that Kate was seen buying this before her wedding, and she’s probably needed it more than ever lately. She’s shouldering so much royal work while raising three kids during this crazy year, so deserves all the Zen she can buy.

BIOTULIN Supreme Skin Gel

For a wrinkle-free complexion, Kate is reported to have turned to Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel. It works kind of like Botox to smooth wrinkles, but it’s not injected so it’s a less permanent solution. The duchess is also said to have recommended the product to former first lady Michelle Obama.

Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation

When it comes to makeup, the Duchess of Cambridge keeps things natural most of the time. She reportedly opts for the Bobbi Brown line of long-wear foundation because it stays in place without looking cakey. This isn’t the only Bobbi Brown product that Kate reportedly has in her makeup bag either. She’s a huge fan of the brand.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

To finish off her eye makeup, Kate usually goes in with a gel eyeliner, according to Today. Her go-to brand is Bobbi Brown (which is what she wore on her wedding day) because it stays in place even in the heat. A good eyeliner is hard to find, but the duchess seems to have struck gold with this one.

Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat All-Over Brightening Concealer Pen

This is another product that Kate shares in common with Meghan Markle. It’s reportedly a go-to concealer and highlighter for them both. As Allure raved, “This magic bullet basically zaps away signs of exhaustion and is a favorite of makeup artists for that very reason.” No wonder Kate always looks so well-rested on Zoom.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact Bronze

Us Weekly reported that Kate stopped getting spray tans while pregnant with Charlotte, and instead turned to the Bobbi Brown Bronze shimmer brick. It gives a natural, healthy glow. Even if she returned to spray tans post-baby, the shutdowns over the last year likely left her turning to this product once again.

Urban Decay Naked3

Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette

Kate Middleton is reportedly a fan of the original Urban Decay Naked palette for her eye shadow. It’s no longer for sale, but new iterations (like the Naked Reloaded palette) contain similar shades for fans to nail Kate’s smoky shadow look. She’s known for her gorgeous eyes, and this is a large part of why.

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Origin All Aglow Lip & Cheek Stick

Cream Blush

We don’t know exactly what brand of blush Kate prefers, but this all-natural lip and cheek stain seems up her alley if she ever wanted to try it. The Daily Mail reported that the duchess recently switched from using a powder blush to a cream one, a move that makes her look more youthful.

Bobbi Brown Lipstick

Most women have a favorite shade of lipstick, and for Kate it’s reportedly Sandwash Pink, a shade in the Bobbi Brown lipstick collection. The tint is a nude pink color, so it’s one of those barely there shades that Kate seems to prefer for her makeup. She looks put together, but also natural.

Clarins Lip Gloss

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Gloss

When she’s not in the mood for a full-coverage lipstick, but she still wants a little color, Kate turns to the Clarins gel lip balm. She was spotted pulling it out of her purse at Wimbledon, and customers have been raving about it ever since. “Beautiful light color that glides on smoothly. Stays on for a good amount of time & it’s not sticky either,” said one buyer review.

Kérastase Nutritive Shampoo for Dry Hair

Kérastase Shampoo

One of Kate’s best Zoom features is her effortlessly bouncy hair. Even when she was styling it herself at the beginning of lockdown, she still looked amazing. She reportedly owes her shiny locks to this Kérastase shampoo, which was designed to nourish even extremely dry hair.
