When it comes to makeup and beauty, Meghan Markle seems to have it all figured out. From her genius trick for taming flyaways to how she creates natural-looking makeup, Meghan’s go-to beauty tips feel are not unlike the advice a best friend would give you. Only, they’re coming from a real-life princess — no big deal.
Makeup and beauty products aren’t the only thing Meghan has a knack for. The duchess also reportedly loves fragrance. Discover Meghan’s favorite scents, plus other makeup products she swears by, ahead.
Meghan Markle’s perfume
In addition to her beauty tips, Meghan also loves fragrance. “Fragrance is my favorite thing — so much so that if I leave the house and I don’t put any on, I’ll turn around and go back home,” she told Express in 2016. And, like many women, the duchess alternates between a few signature scents. “I love Oribe Côte d’ Azur Eau de Parfum and both the Wild Bluebell and Wood Sage & Sea Salt Colognes by Jo Malone,” she told Express.
The Duchess of Sussex isn’t the only royal with a nose for Jo Malone fragrance. Her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton reportedly loves the British luxury brand, too. In fact, Kate had Jo Malone Orange Blossom candles at her wedding to Prince William in 2011. The Duchess of Cambridge used the crip orange-scented candles to set the scene and create a romantic atmosphere in Westminster Abbey as she and William exchanged vows. In addition to Jo Malone candles, Kate spritzed her wrists with Illumiumfor White Gardenia Petals for her big day.
Meghan and Kate aren’t the only royal women with a love of fragrance — their late mother-in-law, Princess Diana also loved perfume. On her wedding day, Diana wore Quelques Fleurs L’Original Parfum and, according to her makeup artist, even spilled a little on her wedding dress.
Meghan Markle’s favorite makeup
Fragrance isn’t the only beauty product Meghan loves. As it turns out, the duchess has a list of cult-favorite beauty products she swears by and has been wearing long before life as a royal. Check out her favorite makeup products, below.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria
When it comes to royal beauty tips, the queen advises both Meghan and Kate to keep things natural. Fortunately for Meghan, her grandmother-in-law is a big fan of lipstick and Meghan’s favorite Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria fits within royal beauty rules. The taupe nude lip color gives the duchess a slight pop of color while keeping things on the natural side of the spectrum. And, rumor has it: This is the color Meghan wore for her engagement photos.
NARS Blush in Orgasm
Meghan is no stranger to cult-favorite beauty products and, according to Beauty Banter, swears by NARS blush in Orgasm for “a perfect rosy flush tone that brightens the face.”
Laura Mercier Illuminating Primer
Ever wonder how Meghan keeps her skin so dewy-looking? Low and behold, her favorite makeup primer is Laura Mercier Illuminating Primer. The duchess reportedly loves it so much, she wears it without foundation. “I don’t wear foundation unless I’m filming, so this is what I put on every day after moisturizer to give my skin a dewy glow,” she told Beauty Banter.
Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment with SPF 15
When Meghan is not rocking her favorite Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, she reaches for a tube of Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment with SPF 15. “I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm but this is the very best,” she told Beauty Banter. “Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it,” she added.
YSL Touche Éclat Concealer
As far as all-time favorite products are concerned, Meghan says she can’t live without her YSL Touche Éclat Concealer. “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,” she told Beauty Banter.
