With 30 percent off Kate's favourite mascara, you'll get incredible volume with its S-shaped wand to add to your smokey eye look. Kate is said to love it as just a few coats of this lash builder will help enhance the Duchess's trademark smokey eyes.

The original price of the mascara was nearly $40 (£34), but with the 30 percent discount, you can bag the mascara for just under $28 (£24) - what a bargain.

During Covid, when mask-wearing was mandatory the Duchess really focussed on her smokey eye make-up, using dark palettes and Lancomes's mascara to help create it. 

Celebrity make-up artist Lisa Little (opens in new tab) told Femail (opens in new tab) in August 2020, "The focus was definitely on her eyes, with a bolder brow than usual teamed with the classic chic smokey eye. She rocked this look perfectly.

"The mask makeup definitely makes us focus on the eyes more. It's a subtle look but it sure does make an impact."

Kate is also said to use darker colors from Urban Decay's eyeshadow palettes to round off her smokey eye look. And if you wondering what other products are part of The Duchess of Cambridge's make-up and skincare routine she's also known to use Bobbi Brown, Clarins, and Nivea.

When it comes to her skincare Kate Middleton uses this go-to drugstore face cream from Nivea. While this $2 beauty secret is said to leave her with blemish-free skin. The simple washcloth, from John Lewis, is apparently one of the key elements of the Duchess of Cambridge's simple skincare routine.

"More gentle than any motorized cleanser brush, the right flannel will allow you to cleanly wipe makeup and dirt from your skin and gently exfoliate" makeup artist Arabella explained.
