Before Meghan Markle became Prince Harry's bride-to-be, many marveled over her badass character in Suits as Rachel Zane. And if you were a fan of the show, you'd know that she was just as gorgeous then as she is now, so her beauty secrets have always been (unsurprisingly) in-demand. To which, she fortunately delivered. Keep scrolling for this new royal's beauty staples!
For skincare, Meghan apparently likes eco-friendly brands like Tatcha. She uses their Rice Enzyme Powder cleanser, telling Allure, "It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation." Speaking of exfoliating, the bride-to-be also raved about a glycolic acid serum from Jan Marini that "makes your skin really glow-y."
She spilled a lash secret, too, swearing that hers are as long as they could be thanks to the Revitalash serum. That said, she tells Beauty Banter that the Shu Uemura eyelash curler makes her look instantly awake.
According to her former makeup artist, Meghan prefers not to apply too much foundation. "Every time I'd do her makeup, she'd say, 'Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don't want a ton of foundation," Lydia F. Sellers tells Refinery29. She used to apply Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation with a damp beauty sponge.
Further, Meghan also once said that she doesn't wear foundation when she's not working. Instead, she uses Laura Mercier's Radiance Primer (P1750, Rustan's) to give her skin a subtle glow. She tells Beauty Banter, "It’s not sparkly, it’s true to its name...'illuminating'."
Slightly ironically, her all-time favorite product is said to be a base product as well, which is YSL's 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. Relatively," she quips.
In an interview with Allure, Meghan shares that she found many of her makeup must-haves from shooting Suits. "We've used the same things during the past few seasons on [the show], and it's been great to have access to these really cool products and see what works," she says. For blush, she swears by another cult-classic—"I love Nars' blush in Orgasm (P1700, Glorietta 3). I use it on and off camera because it gives you a nice glow from within. Meanwhile, the Diorshow Iconic is her pick for mascara, and for powder, and Make Up For Ever's HD Loose Powder (P2250, SM Megamall) for setting her makeup.
It seems that the actress has yet to reveal her favorite lipstick, but she is open about her love for lip balm. In fact, she finds Fresh's Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment (P1734, Sephora.ph) to be the best one she's tried—"Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it."
If these products are good enough for a princess, then they're probably worth checking out. Most of these are cult faves for a reason, after all!
