Beauty Fit for a Queen

Beauty Fit for a Queen

Queen Elizabeth turns 90 today, a landmark birthday which we think deserves a royal celebration. She is known for her glamorous outfits (looking fantastic in a bright pink suit at 90? We love it!) and pristine appearance. Who else gets to commission a lipstick for their Coronation? However, even if you weren’t born a princess you can still give yourself the royal treatment.

Discover the beauty products with the royal seal of approval as well as those that will make you feel like a Queen. Luxurious packaging, precious ingredients and British heritage; what more could you want?

    The Queen insists on a flawless nude manicure, and Ballet Slippers by Essie is her nail polish of choice. In fact, it’s the only colour Her Majesty will wear, as documented by brand founder Essie Weingarten, who told the story of the Queen’s personal assistant personally asking for a bottle of Ballet Slippers in 1989. It looks as though this pretty pale pink is still a firm fav of the Queen’s, and we can totally understand why.

    Roger&Gallet soaps are produced by a unique manufacturing process which preserves all the vital functions of the skin, ensuring you keep your skin royally soft. Although we can’t guarantee, we could take a pretty good guess that their Royal Lavender soap would fit beautifully in the bathrooms of Buckingham Palace.

    Used at the Palace since 1770, many of the Royal family swear by Kent Brushes. Whilst we hear the Queen still faithfully uses her Kent Brushes today, their history hales back to when George III honoured them with the royal warrant. Apparently Her Majesty favours the quality of the wooden handle and prefers a bristle brush to others and, we have to say, her ‘do always looks lovely.

    The Royal Family is an integral part of history and so it’s only fair we include an item to combine Beauty history, too. The Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist is formulated with the power of Hungarian thermal waters and based on the Queen of Hungary water – the first perfume on record. Not only does it have a right Royal name, we reckon this luxurious facial mist would come in handy in the Queen’s handbag, for a quick refreshing spritz during her birthday celebrations.

    Queen Elizabeth II has always been a fan of lipstick (including requesting her own custom blends!) and one brand with the Royal Warrant is Elizabeth Arden. A classic makeup brand that stands the rest of time,  in 2012 Elizabeth Arden marked it’s 50th anniversary for holding the Royal seal of approval. With their Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick – which provides a satin-matte finish lasting up to 12 hours – we can understand why the Queen likes to have their lipstick in her makeup bag.

Beauty is my absolute passion and even having worked in the Beauty Industry for six years, I still love to spend my spare time trying out new discoveries. From red lipsticks to electrical facial devices, I'm always willing to trial the next best beauty product. When I'm not at work I try to explore the USA, so I'm always on the hunt for mini beauty samples to pop in my travel bag for my next flight to NYC.
