The super radiant bronzer that Kate Middleton wore on her wedding day is a bargain buy right now thanks to an online discount. 

The Princess of Wales has no doubt tried countless high-end beauty products in her time and we're sure her makeup collection is jam-packed with everything from the best mascaras on the market to the most incredible long-lasting lipsticks.

But flashback to April 2011 and the glowy bronzing powder that she loved so much she wore it on her wedding day clearly proved its power as she and Prince William tied the knot.

The bronzer responsible for Catherine's radiant and sun-kissed complexion on her big day speaks for itself when you look back at photos from the ceremony - and the product that gave her that lit-from-within shimmer was the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in the shade Bronze.

The Princess of Wales reportedly enlisted the help of a Bobbi Brown makeup expert for some 'artistry assistance' ahead of her nuptials.

Kate actually did her own makeup on the morning of her wedding, but Bobbi Brown makeup artist Hannah Martin reportedly used the shimmer brick to add the bronzy luminosity to the royal bride's cheeks when she gave her some pro tips.

If, like us, Kate's wedding day makeup has left you heart-eyed since you saw her arrive at Westminster Abbey over a decade ago, there's some good news.

The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is available to buy with a discount now - making it an ideal addition to anyone's makeup bag ahead of the warmer months.

LookFantastic describes the Bobbi Brown classic as "an ultra-fine, brush-on powder that imparts a soft glow" and the online beauty retailer is offering it for £33.60 instead of £42 today. That's a saving of £8.40 on the Kate Middleton-approved compact.
