Okay, se we don't really know what she's packed for her trip to New Zealand, but we do know which products she's used in the past or has been spotting buying, so we've compiled some travel beauty must-haves to keep the Duchess of Cambridge looking royally gorgeous on her jaunt around NZ. 


Long flights are dehydrating, but the Duchess can keep dryness at bay with the ultra-hydrating Nivea Pure & Natural Moisturising Day Cream, $12.99, which offers 24 hours of moisture thanks to argan oil and aloe vera. (Kate was spotted picking up this beauty bargain at Boots.)

The Duchess was reportedly also one of the first to receive Lancôme's new DreamTone serum, $138 - this targets pigmentation so it will be ideal to ensure our harsh Kiwi sun doesn't affect her peaches and cream complexion. 


Like many women worldwide, Kate is reportedly a big fan of Laura Mercier's tinted moisturiser. (Kiwis can pick this up from an import website such as Pharmacy Direct). Changing time zones can be tiring - especially with a baby - but luckily Kate will likely have YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Pen, $76, on hand to diffuse any dark circles. She can also perk up with Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink, $79, which is what she apparently wore on her wedding day. 


Kate keeps her makeup subtle, but she always emphasises her eyes. As well as her signature black eyeliner on inner rims, she is said to use Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil in Ash, $57, and Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Wheat, $54 and Lancome's iconic Hypnose Mascara, $58, so we're sure she's got those with her. 


She'll be smiling and waving all day long on her visit, so Kate keeps both lips and nails subtle and chic. She is said to favour Bobbi Brown lipstick in Sandwashed Pink, $54, and Essie Nail Color in Allure, $22.99. 


Kate's thick and glossy brunette mane is the envy of women everywhere. She is reportedly a fan of the ultra-nourishing Kérastase Nutritive Oléo-Relax range, including this mask, $65, which will help prevent frizz in the New Zealand humidity.

Just the basics: moisturiser, mascara, lippy.

The works: foundation, concealer, highlighter, bronzer - there's no room to list it all.
