If you really wanna make people scream “YAS QUEEN!” when you walk by, then you need to try out some of these royal beauty and fashion secrets. Find out how Meghan and Kate always look so flawless!
Allegedly, Princess Diana was so determined to maintain her skin that she always cleansed, toned, and moisturized twice a day. Think about that the next time you’re tempted to sleep in your makeup!
While using toner twice a day might be too harsh for sensitive skin, it’s a good idea to at least wash your face with cool water and apply a good-quality moisturizer first thing in the morning and right before bed.
Want to prevent a wardrobe malfunction? Add weights to the hem of short, light-weight skirts. Kate Middleton learned this lesson the hard way–she had a couple of “Marilyn Moments” before opting to have weights added to her skirt hems.
If you’re not handy with a needle (and don’t have access to the royal tailor) you can buy reusable stick-on weights.
Meghan dished to Allure that her number one beauty secret is tea tree oil. “The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea tree oil,” she said. “It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all.”
Queen Elizabeth has been wearing the same nail polish for decades! She loves Essie’s Ballet Slippers, a pale nude color that fades into the background and merely makes nails look healthy and glossy. Apparently Meghan and Kate wear it sometimes, too!
Many modern royal ladies choose the chignon as their go-to hairstyle. The classic low bun is versatile, easy, and looks effortless. It’s not too overly coiffed to appear stiff, but still elegant enough to wear to a nice dinner or a business meeting.
While Meghan is a fan of a messy bun with pieces framing her face, Kate opts for a tidier hairstyle. In fact, she even wears a nearly-invisible hairnet when attending outdoor events to keep everything in place.
Royal women are encouraged to wear tights or pantyhose in public. But what about their high heels slipping against silky hose? Kate has silicone strips on the soles of her tights to stop them from shifting around. She buys non-slip open toe tights from UK retailer John Lewis which are super affordable at just £5!
One of the reasons that royal women always look so timeless is that they wear modest styles, natural makeup, and minimal jewelry. If you want the conservative look sported by the UK royal family, then you’ll need to give up colored nail polish, bold lipstick, and trendy fashion. And don’t even think about wearing a low-cut top or short skirt!
To be honest, a lot of royal fashion rules are restrictive and out-dated. If this style appeals to you, then go for it! But remember that you’re still a queen if you prefer miniskirts and red lipstick, boots, and jeans, or pink sparkly tutus. Keep being you, lovely!
