3 Steps to the Meghan Markle Glow

The Royal Wedding is just a few days away, and the anticipation is monumental! The latest news? The duchess-to-be is doing her own makeup for her wedding. So, as we wait oh-so patiently, we can freshen up our own faces—using Meghan Markle as our inspiration, of course.

Want to incorporate a re-Markle-ble glow to your springtime look? Here’s what to do.

1. Get Low on Foundation

For her day-to-day look, Markle has said she prefers staying featherlight on the foundation, allowing her natural skin (not to mention gorgeous freckles) to shine through. This makes sense considering no foundation can be seen even in her closest of close-ups.

Make like Meghan and avoid the spackle. If you have some blemishes you want to disguise, use a bit of concealer and blend well with a damp beautyblender.

2. Zone in on the Highlighter

If there’s one distinguishable characteristic about the former Suits actress, it’s her signature radiance. She’s known to be an avid skincare enthusiast (especially when it comes to moisturizing), but she’s also a fan of using natural highlighters. According to her go-to makeup artist Lydia Sellers, Markle’s beautiful sheen is partly attributable to using a natural crème highlighter that “doesn't go on looking like a disco ball, but has just enough pop to make her skin glow in a natural, dewy way," Sellers told

If you’re looking for a highlighter that glides on subtly (without the obvious glitter, gloss or shine) and also convenient for the purse or travel, try Vapour Organic Beauty Halo Illuminator.

3. Get Smokey and Naturally Lippy

According to People, Markle loves wearing Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Very Victoria. Mimic her perfectly rosy nude puckers with Vapour’s Siren Lipstick in Chere or for something more subtle, try Henne Organics Luxury Lip Tint in Bare. If you want to replicate her trademark smokey eye and nude lip combo, pair those nude lips with some black or brown eyeliner or sweep on some light brown eyeshadow on your lids.

If you’re one of the eager U.S. residents planning to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to watch the Royal Wedding, these beauty tips will certainly come in handy when you slump into your office sleep-deprived. Get the Markle glow and nobody will notice!
