5 Princesses and their Signature Beauty Looks

Nothing breathes elegance and grace quite like a princess; and so we’ve searched the world for the 5 royal women who always impress.

Princess Catherine of the United Kingdom
Princess Catherine (formerly Kate Middleton) married Prince William in 2011, in one of the most high-profile royal weddings to date. Since then she’s had two children, focused on charitable work, and was selected as one of the “100 most influential People in the World” by Time Magazine. Her signature look consists of soft-coverage foundation, brown eyeliner and flushed cheeks. To get Kate’s smoky, brown eye, try smudging your liner to soften it, wear your eyebrows groomed, and opt for a nude lip. We love her trademark, salon-blown hair.

Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana of Thailand
Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, the daughter of the Crown Prince Maha Vajralongkorn, is a Paris Fashion Week regular. Her signature look is on-trend and colourful, but never short on sophistication. She’s not one to shy away from bright lipsticks, which she pairs with exaggerated lashes, high-coverage foundation and bronzed cheeks. Check out her thick, glossy mane for some real hair envy!

Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan
OK, so she’s not a Princess, but Queen Rania of Jordan is not only considered one of the most progressive women in her region, she’s also a beauty icon. Her signature look is comprised of dusty-rose lipstick and defined dramatic eyes, lending to a balanced elegance that’s fit for a queen. Her go-to beauty products include liquid eyeliner (which she only wears on her upper lash line), matte eye shadows (in neutral, brown tones) and thick mascara – smoky eye makeup perfection.

Princess Keisha Omilana of Nigeria
When Nigerian Prince Kunle Omilana saw Keisha for the first time, he greeted her with: "You are the most beautiful woman I've ever seen in my entire life.” He has a point! The model and philanthropist likes to keep her makeup simple – think dewy skin and perfectly defined brows. Skin is worn natural with a light-coverage foundation, shimmering, highlighted cheeks and tinted lip gloss - stunning!

Princess Madeleine of Sweden
In addition to her royal duties and charity work, Princess Madeleine of Sweden loves horse riding – perhaps that explains her rosy cheeks and glowing complexion? Her signature look is shiny hair and defined eyes; chic and occasion-appropriate. The princess tends to skip eye shadow and opt for soft, brown eye pencil, which she pairs with pink lip gloss or deeper red and mauve shades.
