No way does she spend that much on just beauty, and if she does she gets SEVERELY ripped off. Are we sure that wasn't the cost of her wardrobe? I've heard a lot of talk recently about how much Charles spends on her event wardrobe.

I bet her wardrobe would be more with all those gowns and events. And I thought she did her own makeup, so I wonder what all that cost really is. Any links to the article?

I also heard the same figure for her wardrobe.

I can't imagine her spending that much on her beauty routine. Maybe before the wedding with her trainers getting her into tip top shape and having her teeth redone, etc, but for being "Royal" both she and William seem very down to earth and not at all pretentious.

Her wardrobe on the other hand I bet is well over that amount yearly. They are at a lot of events all the time and she always has on something gorgeous and high end.

The writers of the article were probably high balling the figures a bit... And perhaps at one point she may have spent alot but it was a one time thing... For instance lasik is maybe 4 grand but you pay that much once. Im not saying that she got lasik lol, but rather a few expensive treatments. In any case she is a princess and may have to shell out some $ as looking pretty is in her job description.

We have to remember that the majority of her wardrobe selections are given to her. She is being constantly photographed and companies want that sort of publicity and exposure.

The Cost of Kate Middleton's Beauty Routine

If you're envious of Kate Middleton's shiny, perfectly curled hair, you can take solace in the fact that flawless grooming doesn't come cheap. According to US Weekly, The Duchess goes to her favorite salon, Richard Ward Hair and Metrospa in London, three times a week for $75 blowouts. A source told US, "She loves her time there and she has known everyone there for years so it's really relaxing for her." Hair salon visits at least 156 times a year?! Must be nice.

When you're a member of the royal family, appearance is everything. Middleton, who is constantly photographed, must constantly uphold an image of elegance and class, so naturally her skin, makeup, nails, and hair must all be impeccable. We dug a little deeper into Middleton's beauty routine to see how much she spends on grooming. We've rounded up her favorite products and estimated her yearly beauty budget based on reported sources, general habits, and cosmetic expiration dates. Let's see how it all adds up.

Hair
-Blowouts at Richard Ward's salon are $75. Three times a week would cost $11,732 a year.
-ELLE UK says Middleton gets $11 Keratin Infusion treatments with each blow dry. Three times a week would cost $1,720 a year.
-Haircuts are $242 a pop. Every six weeks would cost $2,000 a year.
-Richard Ward told the Daily Mail he dyes Middleton's hair with L'Oreal Symbio and Fuente Organic colour. A full head of lowlights at his salon costs $376. Every six weeks would cost $3,008
-BellaSugar, who provided extensive coverage of Middleton's grooming routine, says the Duchess likes the Kérastase conditioning treatments, which cost $20 to $30. Spending $25 once a month would cost $300 a year.

Makeup
Middleton did her own wedding makeup, though she did take lessons. Here are the products she's purchased and used:
-YSL's Touche Eclat Radiant Touch, $40
-Lancome Hypnose mascara, $26
-Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm, $60
-Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, $42
-Bobbi Brown foundation, $46
-Bobbi Brown Pale Pink blush, $24
-Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact, $39
-Bobbi Brown eye shadow in Ivory, Slate, and Rock Star, $21 each
-Bobbi Brown Black Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, $22
-Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink lipstick, $23
-Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip gloss, $17
If she bought all these three times a year her makeup would cost $1,206.

Skin care
-A product loyalist, Middleton loves Swiss brand Karin Herzog's skin care items. The company's managing director told Style.com her favorite items are the $50 Professional Cleanser, the $76 Vita-A-Kombi 1, the $32 Vita-A-Kombi 3 Spot Zapper, and $54 the Oxygen Face Cream. Restocking these items every three months would cost $848 a year.
-The Daily Mail says Mother-in-law Duchess Camilla convinced Middleton to try a $260 Bee Sting Facial from Deborah Mitchell, and now she's hooked. Monthly facials would cost $3,120 a year.
-According to the Telegraph, Middleton was spotted buying Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Moisturising Day Cream at Boots for about $8. Every three months would cost $32 a year.

Nails
Before the royal wedding, Camilla took Middleton to get her nails done by Marina Sandoval at the Jo Hansford Salon. They used Essie's Allure nail polish. BellaSugar says manicures there are $58, and pedicures are $76. Bi-weekly mani/pedis would cost $3,484 a year.

Tan
Kate Middleton and her sister both love spray tans, and BellaSugar claims their regular salon charges $118. If she went bi-weekly it would cost $2,832 a year.

Fragrance
Middleton wore Illuminum White Gardenia Petals perfume on her wedding day. It costs $150 a bottle, so buying two a year would cost $300.

Teeth
According to the Daily Mail, Middleton went to orthodontist Dr. Didier Fillion who closed the gap between her two front teeth with lingual braces using 3D technology. She had a $157 consultation and the treatment may have cost around $7,000. That's $7,157 total.

Kate Middleton's yearly beautifying total: $37,728. But we think she'd look gorgeous on any budget.

^plus if you look at Before pics from a few years ago you can totally see that she got a prewedding make over. Her hair and teeth did NOT look like this at All. I like her new look much beter - very Royal fitting.

Those prices look about right.
