you will NEVER guess who did her makeup every morning (except that particular day)
Elizabeth II left us this Thursday, September 8, 2022. Then aged 96, the British royal family announced the terrible news via a press release: “The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen consort will stay at Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow”.
We will always remember the queen, her courage, her humility, her colorful looks, her various world records, but also her elegance. Her Majesty was always dressed to the nines, no matter the situation. The queen has always been very flirtatious and concerned about her appearance. During his 70 years of reign, we always saw her perfectly dressed. And given her status, we say to ourselves that it was obvious, but above all that it had to be simple for her.
Queen Elizabeth II was actually very independent
We imagine that the queen was constantly surrounded by a large team of people at her service, and that in the morning, she was dressed in an outfit already chosen for her, her hair was done, she was made up. And yet! It was through various books that we finally learned that the queen was actually a woman. very independent. In any case, this is what Angela Kelly, her former personal assistant and main dresser, says in the book The other side of the coin: the queen, the chest of drawers and the wardrobe.
The sovereign probably thought that we are never better served than by ourselves. So she had no not at her disposal as a makeup artist. No, Elizabeth II made up every morning alone in front of her mirror. And her makeover was always flawless. Finally, the queen had a hidden gift for makeup.
This exceptional day for which she called on a makeup artist
There is, however, an exception. Once a year, Queen Elizabeth II asked a professional make-up artist to take care of her beauty treatment. It was the day of the recording of his Christmas message. On this occasion, Her Majesty called on the famous make-up artist Marilyn Widdess.
Queen Elizabeth II was not the only member of the British royal family to prefer make up alone. This is also the case of Meghan Markle. He said to himself that Prince Harry’s wife would take care of her beauty treatment herself every morning. A rumor confirmed by her friend the make-up artist Daniel Martin who had tweeted: “I am not responsible for this makeover, she did it herself. But I would have liked to be there”, he said on the social network.
