How Does Meghan Markle Do Her Makeup?

A generation ago, they had Princess Diana as their beauty icon. Today, we have Meghan Markle. She has such a natural and classic look that women all over the world want to emulate it. Here’s how Meghan gets her soft, gorgeous makeup look, and how you can too:

Most of what we know about Meghan’s makeup routine is from interviews she did before her marriage. However, her classic look is still very similar to the way it was on Suits. We’re assuming things haven’t changed too much, and we’re sure by following her recommendations you can still get a very “Meghan Markle” look.

Meghan Markle prefers tinted moisturizer

Meghan doesn’t wear foundation. She told Today, “I don’t wear foundation unless I’m filming, so this is what I put on everyday after moisturizer to give my skin a dewy glow.” She was referring to Laura Mercier Illuminating Primer.

Things may have changed now that she’s married into the royal family, but she never appears to have a heavy look, so it’s likely she’s stuck to a similar routine. To get this look yourself, choose a sheer illuminator with light coverage. Apply evenly over face. You’re not trying to hide anything, just giving the skin a natural glow.

Meghan Markle uses concealer to brighten her eyes

Meghan loves the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Concealer. “If you’ve worked on a 17-hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive. Relatively,” she told Beauty Banter. To get Meghan’s look, apply a light coverage concealer under the eyes and one stripe down the nose, dab with your fingertips until it’s completely blended.

Meghan Markle uses an eyebrow gel

Meghan uses the Make Up For Ever HD Aquabrow, but any brown eyebrow gel can give you a similar look. Use an angled brush to apply the product carefully onto brows to shape and define.

How to get the Meghan Markle smokey eye

In an interview with Allure, Meghan said she loves M.A.C. Teddy eyeliner. It’s a brown eyeliner with flecks of gold in it. She said it was her makeup artist, Kayleen McAdams that turned her onto the liner. “It’s what she uses on Sofia Vergara, and who wouldn’t want those gorgeous brown almond eyes?” Meghan said.

She’s right, this shade is absolutely wonderful on brown eyes. To get the look yourself, chose a similar shade and nestle the color into your top lash line. Also, slightly run along the bottom lash line and then smudge both top and bottom to give a slightly smokey look.

What blush does Meghan Markle use?

Meghan’s favorite blush is a beauty cult-favorite. “I love Nars blush in Orgasm. I use it on and off camera because it gives you a nice glow from within,” Meghan told Allure. Get the same look with a fleshy, coral pink blush, applied to the apple of your cheeks and cheekbones. To get the same glow as Nars Orgasm, use a light highlighter on the cheekbones as well.

The secret behind Meghan Markle’s lashes

Meghan told Allure that her mascara is Diorshow Iconic, but if you don’t have that, your favorite classic black will do. Apply two coats, focusing on lengthening lashes.

What lipstick does Meghan Markle use?

“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,” Meghan told Beauty Banter about Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment with SPF 15. To get a similar look, use a soft pink or nude lip color with plenty of moisture.

Meghan has such an easy makeup routine compared to some celebrities. It makes her seem down to earth and real. Maybe that’s what makes her so appealing?
