2. Nude lipstick is your best friend

While the Queen almost always opts for a pretty pink lipstick, the duchess is partial to a nude hue – that way she doesn’t need to re-apply colour when she’s out at royal engagements. We love M.A.C Cosmetics Viva Glam V ($20), at maccosmetics.com. READ MORE: An editor's dessert-inspired winter beauty routine
