    Queen Elizabeth II puts on her lip stick as she attends the Opening Ceremony for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games at Celtic Park on July 23, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

    Even Queen Elizabeth II needs a touchup now and then.

    On Wednesday at the opening of the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, the royal shamelessly whipped out and touched up her red lipstick. The queen was seen seated comfortably in the stands with hubby Prince Philip by her side.

    When the queen returned the next day, though, her cosmetics were safely tucked away in her elegant clutch (or in the safe care of a royal aide, let's be real!), but that didn't stop Prince William and Prince Harry's grandma from putting her best face forward. The 88-year-old monarch was all smiles as she cheekily photobombed a selfie being taken by two members of the Australia Commonwealth Games women's hockey team, Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris!

    Their fellow Hockeyroo (yes, that's the real team name) Ashleigh Nelson lucked out, too, by capturing the queen mum in her candid selfie. She Instagrammed the smiling snap, writing," Queen Lizzie continues to follow me around the grounds. She is swift and nimble #queenselfiechallenge."

    Say what you will, but Queen Elizabeth II is sure doing her part to get teams excited for the Commonwealth Games!
