In the world of royalty, where “The Crown” isn’t just a binge-worthy Netflix series but a real-life phenomenon, the art of looking regal involves following a meticulous set of rules. From polished nails to the perfect hair net, the royal ladies follow a beauty regimen more complex than palace etiquette. As we revel in the trending tales of royal life, here are a few of their intriguing beauty dos and don’ts.
Short & Clean Nails
Forget about those long, flashy nails! In the royal realm, it’s all about the short, neat, and sweet. Middleton and Markle are all about those subtle natural nails.
No Bright Lip Colours
Loud lips? Not in Buckingham Palace! Bright shades are a royal no-go, with Middleton and Markle sticking to nudes and pale pinks. Even the Queen had her very own bespoke shade made for her coronation – talk about custom chic!
No Public Makeup Touch-Ups
Caught reapplying lipstick in public? Not these royals! It’s all about keeping the glam game strong behind closed doors and as far as us plebs are concerned, the royals woke up like this.
Hair Should Look Natural & Neat
Royal hair doesn’t scream for attention – it whispers elegance. You won’t catch these ladies with outlandish colors or over-the-top updos. It’s all about that natural, neat sophistication that stays in place no matter what!
Up-dos Require A Hair Net
When royals opt for an up-do, it’s not just about style but also about keeping every hair in place. Enter the humble hair net – the secret weapon for a flawless royal do.
Hide All Signs Of Ageing – Including Grey Hair.
Grey hair in the royal household? Big N.O. This might be more of a conspiracy theory than an actual rule, but to support my claim I ask you one question – Kate is 41 on paper, but where’s the proof?
Don’t Wear Heavy Contour
Any time of heavy makeup (read: fun makeup) seems to be prohibited in Buckingham Palace. In the royal beauty book, less is more when it comes to contour. Kate opts for a dewy foundation and liquid highlighter for a natural, age-defying glow, but we have seen Meghan disregard this rule on occasion!
Wedding Dress Approval By The Queen
Okay, I admit this isn’t a beauty rule but imagine getting your wedding dress approved by your mother-in-law! Middleton and Markle both had their gowns green-lit by Her Majesty. Talk about a high-stakes fashion show! I will say the late Queen had great taste though.
There you have it! A sneak peek into the beauty rules that keep the royal ladies looking well….royal. So, the next time you’re pondering a bold lip or a fancy updo, ask yourself: What would a royal do?
