Royal beauty rules: 7 rules to incorporate
It’s a question that has been passed down since the beginning of time – what are the beauty secrets and the lavish skincare routine of the Royal members? Our obsession is only natural since they seem to have their anti-ageing secrets packed down. It only takes a quick search of Princess Diana and Kate Middleton to notice their incredibly flawless and glowing appearance.
Here are 5 royal beauty rules we’ve compiled to follow:
1. Nude lips are the way to go
Have you ever seen a member of the Royal in a flashy orange lipstick or bright pink? Probably not. Nude colors are the way to go when it comes to a lipstick of choice as it can be paired with every outfit. It also limits the risk of getting lipstick stained on your teeth!
2. Keep it simple and minimalist
Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess keeps their makeup to a minimalist – from their simple eye look to a subtle hint of blush swept across their cheeks, they don’t over-do it. Stick to the basics so brows, eyes, cheeks and lips.
3. No such thing as touch ups
You will never see a royal pull out a lip gloss in public. As a matter of fact royal makeup must be long lasting and durable for any even during the day no matter what the weather. That seems less stressful than having to carry a compact and other makeup items bulk up purse space.
4. One can never have enough patterned dresses
The lives of a Royal means endless events and lavish parties, so one can never have enough outfits – dresses in particular! Patterned dresses with embroidered detailing’s and bold colours are a popular choice. Take a look at Duchess Catherine and Princess Olympia of Greece for some elegant inspo when you’re deciding what to wear to your next night out.
5. Moisturized and well-kept hands
They say that you can tell a woman’s true age by the appearance of their hands, so don’t forget to take good care of them! You use your hands every day so it’s easy for them to become dry and brittle. According to beauty expert Peter Lamas, Princess of Monaco always kept her hands properly moisturized.
6. Stay away from heavy makeup contouring
Just because it’s on Instagram doesn’t mean it should be on your face. The French make a good example of makeup by enhancing not covering up everything. Cover up with a concealer or a dab of foundation where needed. Remember, your beauty is in your skincare routine.
7. Nice and natural hair
When it comes to hair styles and colors, keep it natural like the Royals. Kate Middleton’s hair is always in a stylish up-do or blow-dried waves, giving us girls a chance to emulate at least one aspect of her unattainable beauty and style. The humble hairstyle makes it versatile for any occasion and outfit.
