Kate Middleton's Beauty Routine: What Might It Cost?

Want to Look Like Kate Middleton? Here's What It Might Cost

One year after her royal nuptials, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, always looks lovely and put together. So it's no surprise that many women are clamoring to mimic her style. Obviously, her good looks were handed down from her parents, but constantly being so well groomed requires a serious beauty regimen. While nobody but Kate knows her exact routine, we've uncovered a few products and treatments that are said to be her favorites — and added up the costs. As you can imagine, looking princess-perfect costs a pretty penny. Read on to see the breakdown.

Kate Middleton's hair is envied around the world. At the Richard Ward salon in London, where her stylist James Pryce used to work, cuts run about $250 and styling comes in just under $100. Kate is also said to be a fan of Kérastase in-salon treatments, which can range from about $20 to $30.
Total cost: Assuming one trim, a couple of blowouts, the cost of a few hair care products, and one conditioning treatment per month, you could spend upward of $5,700 on your hair every year.

Skin care
To get her glowing complexion, Kate uses Karin Herzog skin care. "Ms. Middleton uses the Professional Cleanser ($50), the Vita-A-Kombi 1 ($76), the Vita-A-Kombi 3 Spot Zapper ($32), and the Oxygen Face Cream ($54)," according to the brand's UK managing director, Julie Cichocki. Kate is also a fan of facials and is said to enjoy the occasional Bee Sting Facial from Deborah Mitchell (about $267).
Total cost: If a woman were to restock her products every three months and go for a monthly facial, she could be spending over $4,100 a year.


Kate may have done her own makeup for the wedding, but she reportedly took lessons with bridal artist Arabella Preston, who is said to charge $100 per hour for consultations. As for products Kate uses regularly, it's not known, but she was once spotted stocking up on Bobbi Brown products, including eye makeup and "basics."
Total cost: Most of Bobbi Brown's foundations run between $40-$45, blush is $24, and her eyeliners and eye shadows are around $20. With several hours of lessons and new makeup every few months, even a fan of the natural look like Kate could be spending more than $900 on makeup in a year's time.

Before the wedding, mother-in-law Camilla treated Kate's nails to services at the Jo Hansford Salon, where manicures run from $58 up and pedicures cost about $76.
Total cost: If you were to have a manicure and pedicure every two weeks, you'd be spending almost $3,500.

Teeth and tanning
Kate has long been rumored to get sunless tans, which run $118 a session at her usual salon. And she's supposedly also had dental work and whitening by Dr. Didier Fillion, which could have cost over $1,000.
Total cost: If both of these are true, Kate might have spent about $3,500 in the past year.

Grand total
For her first year of hair, skin, makeup, and grooming as princess, Kate could have spent about $17,700. Now that's a regimen fit for a queen-to-be!

WHAT ROUTINE????? I know of many 'ordinary' women, BOTH American AND British that could run rings around this high-priced phony. ANY woman could let her hair down WITHOUT any fancy embellishments. Her face? COMMON. She CONNED the British people with her 'frugality' and 'ordinary' demeanor (after all, the economy comes FIRST, doesn't it?) that included wearing the same clothes on numerous occassions. NOW, the TRUTH comes out. She can sure spend the British people's money, BUT, doing her DUTY? WHERE IS A NEW HEIR FOR THE HOUSE OF WINDSOR??? HIGH-FASHION MODEL (AND selfish self-serving VANITY) IS not HER official JOB DESCRIPTION. This IS to be believed, because she has NOT done ONE THING to justify her position. SHE IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE WILLIAM COULD HAVE MADE. I think we've seen the LAST of the British Royal Family. The kinks were made by Diana, and the job is being finished by Kate. SO MUCH FOR COMMONERS. ALL Kate cared about was becoming "Princess" WITHOUT a clue as to what it REALLY meant. She SHAGGED and SNAGGED William the old-fashioned way ANY woman would "get a man"; using flagrant and shameless SEX to get him. The emphasis on having a family was stressed on her wedding day by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Robert Runcie (who has overseen many Royal weddings, so he knows where he speaks), and it was a big part of her vows. Since then, she has rewritten the rules to suit herself. To her it means dieting into a stick-thin fashion model and presenting herself as such. She cares NOTHING for tradition or the British people and sees herself in an overblown image. She is conceited, vain, self-serving, ambitious, and deceptive, and the House of Windsor and the British people are paying the price of keeping this woman in an expensive lifestyle with NOTHING in return. SHE IS A LEECH, AND THE DOWNFALL OF THIS VALUED AND HISTORIC INSTITUTION

Anon 4, she uses spray tanner. No tanning beds for her as far as I know.

She's definitely gorgeous anyway, and if I had my photograph taken half as much as she does, I'd be more than willing to spend that much too.

Yes, she's very pretty, and from what I can tell (from the admittedly little I know about her) she seems bright and friendly.
