Unless you live in a box, you heard the exciting news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged! I cannot wait for this wedding! It is just the ultimate fairytale…
With this glorious news, I got to thinking about what it would be like to be royal (I mean, who hasn’t?!) and then I wondered what a royal’s beauty routine would be. My mind always seems to come back to makeup and skincare! I did some research and found some interesting facts I thought I would share with my little beauties this week.
There were numerous articles and posts I found about a specific mask that Marie Antoinette used as she was praised for her beautiful complexion.
The mask: 2 teaspoons of cognac, 1/3 cup dry milk powder, a little egg white and lemon juice. The cognac helps with circulation and reducing pores.
Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece
This blonde royal beauty revealed that she doesn’t wear perfume, but will wear Philosophy’s Amazing Grace lotion.
Queen Rania of Jordan
Queen Rania is the epitome of elegance. She has such a chic and sophisticated style. She often has her hair blown out in rounded curls and her makeup is simple and effortless. She is a timeless, royal beauty!
The secret to the Duchess’ glowing complexion is thanks to rosehip seed oil. You can read all about my love for rosehip seed oil here.
Queen Elizabeth II
Apparently the Queen loves lipstick! So much so that she had her own created for her coronation by her favourite lipstick brand, Clarins, to match her robes. The shade was a red-blueish hue called, The Balmoral (which pays homage to her Scottish mansion).
The late Princess of Monaco was a hand cream addict, and for good reason! She knew that a woman’s age shows on their hands first, so she always kept her hands moisturized to keep wrinkles at bay.
It is said that Princess Diana stuck to the basics when it came to her skincare routine. She cleansed, toned and moisturized her skin every night and always made sure to remove her makeup before bed. It’s evident in all her pictures that this routine served her well as her skin was luminous!
When I began my search for Ms. Markle’s beauty tips, I found a number of articles all about the soon-to-be bride of Prince Harry. Check out her must-have beauty favourites:
