We may not all be blessed with Meghan Markles genes, but fortunately we can get our hands on some of her favourite beauty products!
Read on to find out which products the Duchess rates above all others…
‘I don’t wear foundation unless I’m filming so this is what I put on every day after moisturiser to give my skin a dewy glow. It’s not sparkly, it’s true to its name… “Illuminating”, she told Beauty Banter. The primer comes in two shades, a slightly pink pearlescent formula and bronze for a summery glow.
In a recently resurfaced interview with Beauty Banter, Meghan named NARS’ Orgasm as one of her five can’t-live-without products due to its ‘perfect rosy flush tone that brightens the face.’ The pinky, peachy blush with golden undertones is one of the most universally flattering blush shades on the market, so it’s really no wonder the Duchess is a fan.
Meghan favours a glowy, healthy formula and has one specific foundation rule. ‘Every time I’d do her make-up, she’d say “Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don’t want a ton of foundation,” her former MUA Lydia Sellers told Refinery 29.
Although she likes her skin to look like skin, Armani Luminous Silk was always her makeup artists go-to, to perfect Meghan’s skin. Well-loved in the celebrity world, by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Cate Blanchett and Rashida Jones, it is a medium consistency liquid formula, and it leaves skin with a healthy glow.
Six of these iconic pens are sold every minute (or one every ten seconds), so it’s not a huge surprise Meghan Markle is also a fan. ‘It blends, it’s compact and if you’ve worked a 17-hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive. Relatively,’ she told Beauty Banter.
‘My favourite mascara is Diorshow Iconic,’ Meghan told Allure, noting that she first discovered a lot of her favourite products on the set of Suits. This one is great for super lifted, eye-catching jet black lashes to really make your peepers pop.
‘I use Chanel Cassis Eyeliner on my upper lash line and water line, and the touch of shimmer powder adds a brightness and sparkle,’ Meghan said in her Beauty Banter interview. ‘Even if I have no make-up on, I am likely to apply concealer and a bit of shimmer in the corners of my eye.’ Cassis is a rich purple liner, as Meghan rightly recommends, is great for tightlining and defining the eye.
I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm but this is the very best. Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it,’ she told Beauty Banter. And agree – the smooth balm is available in a range of gorgeous tints and has the added benefit of SPF. Not too sticky, not too matte.
According to Beauty Banter, Meghan says that she ‘religiously’ uses both ‘Masquintense and the Oleo Relax line’. The Masquintense treatment mask comes in two separate versions for both thick and fine hair, for when your locks need a repairing deep moisture boost.
