We don't know about you, but when we get wind of any of Kate Middleton's beauty products, well, we bookmark them instantly. The Princess of Wales always looks like a 10/10, so if there's any chance we can emulate that glow for ourselves, we'll happily try our luck.

There's no question that her bridal look from her wedding to Prince William in 2011 will go down in the beauty history books, with Kate famously doing her own make-up for the big day. But the royal is pretty much always camera-ready, with super-healthy hair and skin and classic make-up choices. Who wouldn't want a slice of that for themselves?

So without further ado, keep reading for the beauty products lucky enough to have the royal seal of approval, from skincare to Kate Middleton's favourite perfume.

Kate Middleton's make-up favourites

Generally speaking, Kate's signature make-up look consists of groomed eyebrows, lined eyes, a healthy glow to the cheeks and a nude lip. During an appearance at Wimbledon, we got a rare glimpse of the Princess using a beauty product in public; namely, the classic Clarins Natural Lip Perfector. We'd say the above looks like the equally classic shade, Rose Shimmer.

As for Kate Middleton's lipstick of choice? It's normally Bobbi Brown's Lip Colour in the shade Sandwash Pink, which she most notably wore for the Royal Wedding. Unfortunately, the colour is sold out everywhere, but the below shade is a great alternative. 

Everyone has their favourite mascara, and the royal's is a classic – Lancôme's Hypnôse Mascara in jet black. No wonder her eye make-up looks are always so on point.

Kate Middleton's hair products

Kate's hair is the envy of us all, and it's no surprise that so many people use her as a reference point in the hairdresser's chair. So how does she look after those shiny, shiny locks?

Amongst the beauty industry, it's pretty well known that if you want K-Middy hair, then this is the Kérastase product you need, as the royal is reportedly a fan of the Bain Satin shampoo. It's not hugely surprising as SO many celebrities tout this brand as their favourite for haircare – Millie Mackintosh, Mollie King and Tess Daly, to name but a few.

Kate Middleton's skincare products

Ah, the Kate Middleton glow. Just what, exactly, does she use to get that signature glowy complexion? We've made it our mission to find out.

First up is this organic oil. It's rich in vitamin C, omegas and fatty acids, is said to have been Kate's go-to throughout her pregnancies. Thought to be a recommendation from her mum Carole, who loves it too, it can reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and stretch marks. Magic.

The story goes that the Princess of Wales actually recommended this 'natural alternative to botox' to former First Lady, Michelle Obama, according to the latter's make-up artist. Because of this, we're prepared to bathe our skin in the stuff.

Have you ever seen the Princess of Wales with a spot? Nope, us neither. That’s probably down to her apparently being a huge fan of Swiss beauty brand Karin Herzog and, more specifically, this spot-zapping face cream.

Kate Middleton's favourite scent

Sure, we couldn't attend the Royal Wedding, but we can imagine how it smelt... No really, Westminster Abbey was scented with a classic Jo Malone London fragrance, the Orange Blossom candle (or several.) Did you know that this scent is also available as a perfume, and apparently it's one of Kate's favourites.

We don't know about you, but Kate Middleton's favourite beauty products are seriously making us reconsider our beauty bag essentials.
