To mix things up, I thought it might be fun to feature some of Meghan Markle’s favorite beauty products! With the exception of special events, the Duchess of Sussex tends to keep things pretty natural. A no-makeup makeup look seems to be what she favors, as loves to keep her face makeup light so as to let her freckles shine through! Below are some of her longtime favorite beauty products – snag ’em for yourself to recreate Meghan’s dewy natural makeup look!
MEGHAN MARKLE’S GO-TO LIPSTICK
It’s been reported that Meghan loves this Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in “Very Victoria”, which is a subtle pinky-nude that she doesn’t have to worry about reapplying during royal engagements. She loved this color so much, in fact, she wore it for her engagement day appearance/photos! She doesn’t change up her lip look all that much, so my guess is this is her everyday go-to shade. Oddly enough, the name Victoria also happens to be at the top of the royal baby name list as far as betting is concerned… only time will tell!!
THE PRODUCT KEEPING MEGHAN’S FACE FRESH AND DEWY
As mentioned above, Meghan prefers to keep her face makeup on the lighter side as to let her pretty freckles shine through. Instead of doing a heavy foundation, the Duchess has admitted to loving this primer and this tinted moisturizer for dewy, minimal coverage. I wear a number of Laura Mercier products myself – they are very high-quality and are gentle on sensitive skin!
THE MASCARA MEGHAN SWEARS BY
The Duchess of Sussex is obviously a natural beauty, and her eyes are certainly one of her best features! To play them up and add some drama, Meghan swears by Dior’s Diorshow Iconic Mascara. She’s been wearing this mascara for years, having first mentioned it in an interview with Allure in 2014! Sounds like a ringing endorsement to me!
WHAT THE DUCHESS RELIES ON FOR THOSE EARLY MORNING APPEARANCES
To instantly brighten her eyes, hide puffy under-eye bags and make her look more refreshed, she uses Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Concealer. This handy pen works as a highlighter and concealer in one, fighting signs of fatigue on the go! Meghan was quoted as saying regarding her long shoot days at Suits, “If you’ve worked a 17-hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive. Relatively.”
HOW TO ACHIEVE MEGHAN’S PERFECTLY ROSY CHEEKS
One thing I always notice about Meghan’s makeup looks is how perfectly rosy her cheeks are! I shouldn’t be surprised, mostly because I love the NARS blush she uses as much as she does. Her favorite color? Orgasm. She’s got much darker skin than I do (I’m pale as hell!), so if that’s not proof that it works on a bunch of skin tones I’m not sure what is!
HOW MARKLE GETS THAT GLOW
For highlighting certain assets and adding a radiant touch to her makeup look, Meghan has been known to wear RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer, thanks to the introduction by one of her former makeup artists (Lydia Sellers). This product is ultra sheer, creating a subtle glow that is ideal for daytime wear. it is said to “enhance your skin’s natural youthfulness without being sticky, greasy or glittery”… I’m sold!
There are certainly more beauty, hair and body products Meghan loves, but that’s all I want to share for now – I’ll be doing more of these posts every few weeks! Stay tuned… In the meantime, see some close-up beauty shots of Meghan below for assistance in recreating her gorgeous looks yourself!
