A real royal, even in terms of beauty. Nobody like it Queen Elizabeth is capable of surprising. Even when we talk about make up. Her Majesty in fact – during a video call with the staff and patients of the Royal London Hospital – showed off glossy and brilliant cyclamen lips. Thanks to its new beauty ally: he glosses. And a real glam, fashionable and trendy touch for the English queen, who will turn 96 on April 21st. And, despite his age, he is not afraid to experiment with new colors and new textures.

Queen Elizabeth and lip gloss

Here she is Queen Elizabeth during her virtual visit to the Royal London Hospital. A meeting organized on the occasion of the inauguration of a wing bearing her name. And, perhaps for this very reason, Elizabeth II wanted to show herself cured in every detail. Including make-up, in which the bright and glossed lips are the absolute protagonists: they even stand out in the video shared on the Royal Family Instagram profile. The play of light created by the screens of digital devices, then, helps to increase the brightness of the gloss, which almost seems like a mirror effect.

Never without lipstick

It must be said that Queen Elizabeth is a great lover of lip make-up. In fact, in many years of reign, she is not May shown without lipstick. There has been no event in which the English royal has not shown the world lips colored in various shades of pink, her lucky color. But never as lucid as in the last videocall.

Lip gloss: ally of brightness

To give light and shine: this is the purpose of each lip gloss self-respecting. A fashionable touch, from which even Queen Elizabeth has let herself be conquered. It is, in fact, a very simple expedient to redefine the lip contour and, at the same time, give light to her whole face. The almost wet effect of the gloss, in fact, reflects light, making the complexion more radiant as well. The choice of shade does the rest: the much-loved pink of Queen Elizabeth, in fact, is ideal for adding liveliness to the whole look. On the other hand, the contrast with Elizabeth II’s very white hair is just perfect.

Why the Queen uses it

Behind the Queen’s beauty choice, however, there could also be another reason. The gloss helps to illuminate the lips and the whole face, but there is more. For who she has thin lips like her, it is an excellent ally to enlarge them naturally. With the glossindeed, the lips appear larger, plumped and well defined. In short, a sort of volumizing optical effect. With age, in fact, her lips tend to thin and the beauty makeup to remedy – immediate, low cost and very simple – is precisely that veil of gloss that Elizabeth II can no longer do without.
