We love to switch up our make-up from time to time but, when it comes down to it, the most important part of any beauty look is good skin.

So we weren’t surprised when Arabella Preston, the Duchess of Cambridge’s makeup artist, revealed that her top beauty tip was focuses on creating a flawless complexion. Speaking to The Cut, Preston revealed, "It’s all about the flannel." Referring to it as "quite necessary," she explained that a flannel is an essential part of any skincare routine, as it helps ensure the face is cleaned properly.

While it’s tempting to grab a mini towel, Preston is actually referring to washcloths like muslin cloths, as these have a host of benefits for the skin. As well as being gentler than a cleansing brush, the correct wash cloth allows you to properly remove make-up and dirt from the skin while providing gentle exfoliation.

Judging from the beautiful makeup looks Preston’s created for the Duchess in the past, we’ll definitely be following this advice.
