When it comes to fashion and beauty, we all have favorites – products and styles we remain loyal to throughout the years. Queen Elizabeth II was no exception, as was evidenced by the many photos of her applying her trusty lipstick. Her favorite was Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Lipstick, in the Fig shade ( we wonder if the sales of this shade have accelerated after reading this).
Apparently, Elizabeth Arden has a Royal Warrant since it is the preferred beauty brand of the Royals. Above, we see the Queen applying lipstick during the Windsor Horse Show in 1985. A royal color for a royal member.
Headbands Are Always Welcome
When tired of wearing a hat, Royal ladies opt for a classy headband. Years ago, this was not acceptable; however, these days, it goes without saying. After all, a fashionable headband can jazz up any outfit. Below, we see Princess Beatrice attending her sister Eugenie’s wedding in Windsor.
Princess Beatrice wears a dark blue dress by Ralph & Russo and pairs it with a purple headband designed by Sarah Cant. The princess was her sister’s maid of honor, which is not traditional at a royal wedding, and to top it off, she wore a different outfit than the rest of the bridal party. However, that headband made her look fabulous.
Go for the Bodysuit
As a Royal lady, you must always look chic and elegant, and this includes making sure your shirt is never untucked. It doesn't matter if you were born into the family or managed to work your way up the royal ladder; this beauty tip is a must. To not have to deal with constantly checking her shirt, Meghan Markle has chosen a much simpler option – wearing a bodysuit.
The Duchess of Sussex loves her bodysuits, as is seen in the above photos, with Markle wearing a sleek Alexander McQueen black suit with a shirt-style white bodysuit from Tuxe. We have to say, she looks great.
Denim Is for Walking the Dog
It is no surprise that in the Royal family, wearing denim is strictly reserved for going out to walk the dog. However, rule breaker that she was, Princess Diana wore denim on more than one occasion – and she rocked it! Seeing her walking down the street ( which didnt happen very often), one could accidentally mistake her for a simple commoner doing her morning runs.
Here you can see Princess Di wearing a casual pair of jeans with a white and blue colored, V-neck cable knit sweater back in 1992. She paired the ensemble with some elegant flat slippers and walked gracefully down those stairs.
Keep Your Hands Clean and Classy
The late Queen Elizabeth II might have loved bright colors for her suits, but she always kept it neutral when it came to her gloves. The Queen was almost always seen wearing a pair of black or white gloves. Apart from being very classy accessories, which are crafted by a special royal glove maker, they allowed the Queen to stay hygienic after shaking so many hands.
Above, the Queen attends the Ceremony of the Keys in her traditional light blue suit and white gloves, the perfect color combination. Like always, she looks smart, elegant, and very much royal. The white gloves are a tradition carried out for years, and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere.
