Make-up, skincare products, and bathroom staples that have the royal stamp of approval.
Her Majesty The Queen has been the image of poise and grace throughout her 70 years of public service. We have lived for her monochromatic looks from head-to-toe and her steadfast loyalty to her classic black loafers from shoemaker Anello & Davide. The Queen has given us classic fashion moments countless times but what we can't help but notice is how good her skin always looks and how well her makeup stays intact. We need to know her beauty secrets!
Of course, the Queen doesn't go on national television telling viewers what blush or moisturiser she likes but her beauty secrets can most certainly be deduced thanks to her Royal Warrants (marks of recognition of those who have supplied goods or services to the Households of HM The Queen or HRH The Prince of Wales). We know that certain beauty brands like Molton Brown, Clarins, Elizabeth Arden, and Floris London have had the privilege of supplying products to the royal family and there has also been a lot of reporting on what the Queen fancies.
According to a report by Insider, the Queen absolutely loves Essie nail polish in the shade Ballet Slippers, which is a mere £7.99. Essie’s website proudly states that Queen Elizabeth's hairdresser wrote a letter in 1989 to founder Essie Weingarten requesting a bottle of the iconic shade. Now it's the only nail colour she will wear – and we can see why. The pale pink hue goes with the brightly coloured outfits we're used to seeing her majesty wearing.
Other than neutral nails, the Queen also has a penchant for bold lip colours, usually opting for bright pinks or a classic red. As reported by Woman & Home, the Queen commissioned Clarins to create a bespoke, red lipstick for her to wear at her coronation in 1953 so this is most likely her go-to brand for lippies. If you're looking to emulate her majesty's elegant beauty to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee over the bank holiday then see all her rumoured faves down below.
