Aren’t we in awe with the grace and beauty of royal families and the prim and proper looking royals always manage to wow us. When it comes to the personal style and beauty of these royal personalities, we see that there’s a lot of elegance and effortlessness reflected in their style. They especially seem to have perfect skin and hair, and it may seem there’s an army of people to take care of their grooming, it all boils down to some basic tips, which can be followed by anyone. In this post, we have put together some of the most prized beauty secrets of the royal ladies from around the world. Let’s take a look at what we can learn from these royal divas.
1. Princess Diana:
We start with everyone’s all-time favourite royal, Princess Diana! Her power makeup secret was the effective use of mascara. She never stepped out without wearing mascara, and her makeup artist Mary Greenwell had taught her how to coat the roots of her lashes with mascara to give her lashes a full and luscious look. As for skincare, Princess Diana made religious use of a deeply hydrating moisturizer and never stepped out without adequate sun protection.
2. Kate Middleton:
This might come as a surprise to many, but the Duchess of Cambridge seems to like a drugstore moisturizer— Nivea Soft Moisturising Crème for all her hydration needs. In fact, she regularly stocks up on this cream. Another one of her favorites is Triology Rosehip Oil that she absolutely loves and uses daily on her skin. Also, do you know, she did her own makeup at her wedding to Prince William, and she looked so wonderful. Here’s a makeup trick from her – to create subtle smokey eyes, use a gel liner and smudge it slightly to get the smokey look instead of doing elaborate eye makeup with tons of eyeshadows.
3. Grace Kelly:
The Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly, absolutely loved using hand cream. She believed that a person’s age first starts showing up on their hands, which is why she took extra care to keep her hands soft and nourished at all times.
4. Queen Victoria:
While we are busy applying perfuming to our wrists and neck and what not, Queen Victoria did something pretty unique. She applied rose oil to her gloves to use it as a perfume that warded off bad smells.
5. Mary Antoinette:
The Queen of France was also probably the queen of DIYs, and she had a favourite DIY face mask that worked wonders for her. She used two teaspoons of cognac, some dry milk powder, one egg white and the juice of a lemon and mixed all the ingredients together. This dreamy mask stimulates circulation, tightens pores, repairs damaged skin, exfoliates dead skin and gives the face a radiant glow.
6. Meghan Markle:
Meghan Markle swears by the goodness of tea tree oil and keeps it handy at all times as a cure-all. She also loves applying virgin coconut oil to keep her locks shiny and strong. Markle also loves a good facial massage and she believes that it helps keep the face sculpted and contoured. She also practices facial exercises to sculpt her jawline and cheekbones. She keeps her lips hydrated and protected with a good SPF lip balm. Also, do you know she does not use hair spray directly, she first sprays it on to a toothbrush and then combs her hair to tame flyways! We all could do that! What a brilliant idea! And her favorite body lotion would not cost a bomb – it’s something as basic as Nivea Skin Firming Body Lotion. More importantly, Meghan believes in nourishing skin from within and gets her dose of vitamin E from a handful of almonds daily.
7. Charlotte Casiraghi:
Casiraghi is Grace Kelly’s granddaughter, and as beautiful as she looks, her skincare and beauty routine is actually quite simple. She loves French pharmacy products and swears by the use of a good, chemical-free makeup remover. She makes it a point to remove her makeup completely, and keep her face cleansed (DIY Cucumber Cleanser) and hydrated at all times. She believes that clean skin is the key to healthy and glowing skin.
8. Princess Maria-Olympia:
Princess Olympia of Greece swears by the wonders of beauty sleep, and makes sure that she gets adequate rest every night. Some of the luxurious beauty treatments she swears by are from Dr. Lancer in L.A. and an Eve Lom facial by Eve Lom at the Sanderson in London.
Finally, the most important beauty tip, all royals believe in getting their beauty sleep, at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night, and that’s what our body and skin needs to look good!
