The Queen only hires a makeup artist once a year – find out when

The Queen always looks immaculate in public, with a distinct beauty look that includes flawless skin, a subtle blusher swept across the apples of her cheeks and a pop of her favourite fuchsia pink lipstick. But Her Majesty’s dresser has revealed something surprising about her routine in her new book The Other Side of the Coin: the Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe.

Angela Kelly, who has worked with the monarch for the past 25 years, reveals that when the Queen records her Christmas message, she arranges for a makeup artist Marilyn Widdess to be there on the day of filming, adding: “You might be surprised to know that this is the only occasion throughout the year when Her Majesty does not do her own makeup.”
