17 Royal Beauty Rules Kate Middleton Never Breaks

After more than a decade of being an official member of the royal family, it goes without saying that Kate Middleton always looks flawless when she’s in public. Her makeup is always perfect, her outfit is well put together, and she doesn’t have a single hair out of place — but then again, that’s part of her job! The Duchess of Cambridge follows certain beauty rules when it comes to her hair, makeup, and even the accessories she wears on her head. There’s a lot to keep up with when living the royal life, but she does it with style.

For anyone who’s watched The Crown or even paid attention to Queen Elizabeth over the years, it’s obvious that royal life is all about protocol and etiquette, even when it comes to one’s appearance. Whether it’s her makeup, hair, or even her nail color, Kate has to keep up with a lot of different regulations, but she never seems to mind it one bit.

Keep scrolling for the beauty rules that Kate never breaks. Some of these might actually work for our own, non-royal beauty routines, too.

Wear Neutral Makeup

We’ve never seen Kate sporting any particularly bright or trendy makeup looks, and there’s a good reason for that. The royals all seem to keep it neutral and natural when it comes to their cosmetics, so we’ll see a lot of browns and pinks in the looks Kate wears regularly.

No Bright Lipstick

We’ve never seen Kate wear bright lipstick, and there’s a good chance we never will. Eye-popping colors on lips are not really an option for the ladies of the royal family (and that definitely seems to include Queen Elizabeth, too). Mostly pinks and subtle reds for this lady!

No Bright Nail Colors

Though some might imagine that getting her nails done is part of Kate’s royal beauty routine, it doesn’t seem to be. In fact, more often than not, Kate’s spotted with totally natural nails that don’t even have a coat of clear polish, so it seems like staying natural is the name of the game here.

Only Go Glam for Truly Special Occasions

It’s rare that we see Kate wearing heavy makeup, but when she does take it to the next level, it’s always for a special occasion. She never overdoes it on the eyes or lips on a regular day — if she’s glammed up, that means there’s a red carpet event on the agenda.

Don’t Phone It In for Zoom

While many of us take working from home to mean sweatpants are our new uniform, that’s not so for the Duchess of Cambridge. Even while doing Zoom engagements, she always looks absolutely perfect — and we can almost guarantee she’s not wearing leggings, even if the camera doesn’t show her legs!

Keep Hair Fresh

Over the years, we’ve seen Kate with a few different hairstyles and lengths — she’s never been afraid to experiment with cuts and colors, even if she does keep her hair close to the shade of brunette we know and love her for. Switching things up means she always looks fresh!

Don’t Let Makeup Run

Whether Kate is attending a gala, visiting children at a school, or showing off her sailing prowess on a boat, we’ve never seen her makeup run, and there’s a good reason for that. She always has to look her best, and there’s no doubt she or her makeup artist use all their best tricks to help achieve that goal.

There Are No Days Off

Even when she has a good reason to skip doing her hair and makeup entirely, Kate never does. Every time she’s left the hospital after having a baby, we’d totally forgive her if she wasn’t wearing makeup and threw her hair up in a messy bun, but she always emerges from the Lindo Wing looking flawless.
