4. Hand cream - Clarins

In most cases, Elizabeth II appears in public wearing gloves. This accessory doesn’t just complement her elegant image. Given the specifics of the Queen’s occupation, the gloves are also called to serve as a kind of protection in cases where she has to shake hands repeatedly. However, the Queen still takes off her gloves, demonstrating the skin’s beautiful condition considering its age. This effect is achieved by using creams from Clarins.

Elizabeth II is also reported to approve some of the decorative cosmetics produced by this brand, including compact matting powder.

5. Nail polish - Essie

A neat manicure always adorns the Queen’s fingers. She is known to prefer a neutral light shade from Essie. It provides her nails with only a light halftone, suiting any of Her Majesty’s outfits.

Becoming beauty products supplier for the royal family is the dream of every cosmetic brand. It would seem to be easily done, as you might consider it is just enough to replenish their stocks. However, royal family representatives are prohibited from accepting any product as a gift, if this can be used by the producer for advertising purposes. That is why, they buy all the beauty means, clothes, and all the other stuff.
