45-Year-Old Queen Letizia Appeared In Public Without Makeup For The First Time In Many Years

Date September 17, 2018 16:04

The Queen of Spain always attracts attention with public appearances, regardless of where she is. Before she married Felipe, she was an already successful journalist.

She began her career while she was still a student, then later trained in prestigious Mexican and Spanish publications, and even collaborated with CNN+. Later she received an award for outstanding professional achievement among young professionals.

After becoming a part of the Spanish royal family, she had to fight for her popularity. The Spanish weren’t too happy about the Prince’s choice since Letizia had already been married to her school teacher. Nevertheless, she managed to win over the public's affection and enjoyed being an exquisite style icon.

Letizia always appears impeccable, whether in luxury outfits for official occasions, in straightforward business suits, or even casual summer dresses.

She is one of few royals who embraces informal styles. For example, in early September, she celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Asturian National Park Picos de Europa foundation, accompanied by her husband and daughters. She resembled any other mom that day. Letizia chose comfortable light trousers, complementing them with a snow-white loose cut shirt. Both daughters also choose similar simple outfits.

Letizia prefers wearing bright colors, variegated fabrics, and unusual combinations. The Queen usually has matching make-up and loves lipstick with saturated colors.

On September 11, the royal couple accompanied their daughters to the school of Santa Maria de los Rosales. Felipe was behind the wheel all day, while Letizia's interesting appearance surprised the public. She was dressed in white trousers, a top of the same light color, a gray jacket, and had her hair in a bun.

However, the public was most surprised by the complete absence of make-up! The Queen just highlighted her eyelashes and featured only pale pink lipstick.

Although Letizia’s image that day was far from what we usually consider “royal," her husband Felipe looked rather well-groomed.

What do you think, does makeup change the Queen’s look much? Is it okay for royals to appear in public in such a casual way? Share your opinions in the comments.
