Kate Middleton has become both a beauty and style icon. Fans have been trying to covet some of her looks for years. It’s not surprising when one of her outfits or dresses sell out. The Duchess of Cambridge’s makeup artists, Arabella Preston, is sharing some of her skincare secrets to NYMag. The reason why Kate Middleton glows is because she washes with a flannel face cloth. That’s right. She’s not going to use some ordinary wash cloth. She wants to use the best fabric on her face.
Kate Middleton prefers using a flannel face cloth because her hands don’t get dirty, and it allows for gentle exfoliation. It immediately wipes the dirt and makeup away from her face. The 35-year-old does most of her makeup herself. Arabella Preston is the same makeup artist that Middleton used during her wedding to Prince William on April 29, 2011.
There’s a certain way to use a flannel face cloth. You can’t just wipe it all over your face at the end of your day. According to Kathleen Hou, beauty editor at The Cut, you should “give yourself a gentle massage and rub with damp hands, and even the densest caking of makeup and mascara will easily dissolve.” Instead of splashing your face with water, you should wet the washcloth then wipe your face clean.
Kate Middleton also reportedly loves using Trilogy Rosehip Oil. The product is so good that one sells every 20 seconds. When people got wind that Kate Middleton used it, it sold out within minutes that the article was published. Middleton has always been conscious of health and beauty but became more aware of the products she used when she was pregnant with Charlotte.
An inside source told Us Weekly about Kate Middleton’s beauty routine. They revealed that she loves using Triology’s Rosehip Oil before it was even confirmed. The source said that Kate Middleton uses it because she loves how it feels on her skin, and her mother Carole [Middleton] is also a huge fan. It looks like it runs in the family. Rosehip oil is an anti-inflammatory oil that reverses the signs of aging and reduces discoloration.
Kate Middleton’s hair has always made headlines of its own. She went head-to-head against Kim Murray over the years, reports The Mirror. Kate Middleton is known for her voluminous waves while Kim Murray has been making heads turn with her straight hair and curls. But, Kate Middleton wins this competition since she always has a great looking blowout. What are your thoughts, CDL readers?
