Here Are The Must-Have Beauty Products Meghan Markle Swears By
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick In Very Victoria, $34
The cult-favorite beauty brand Charlotte Tilbury makes one of Meghan’s favorite lipsticks, according to Hello. Her preferred shade? “Very Victoria,” a taupe nude mattethat the princess-to-be reportedly wore for her engagement day photos.
In an interview with Allure, Meghan revealed she can’t travel without one product: tea tree oil. While Meghan didn’t reveal her favorite brand, Now Tea Tree Oil has rave reviews. “It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all,” Markle said.
Chanel Style Yeux Waterproof Long-lasting Eye Liner In Cassis, $33
Speaking of eyes, no makeup bag is complete without a stick or two of long-lasting eyeliner. This Chanel Style Yeux waterproof eyeliner is one of Markle’s favorites. She swipes it on her upper lash line and water line for an extra bit of definition.
Recommended to her by makeup artist Kayleen McAdams, Markle is a huge fan of MAC’s Teddy eyeliner, a brown shade with a hint of gold that makes her dark eyes pop. “It’s what [Kayleen] uses on Sofia Vergara, and who wouldn’t want those gorgeous brown almond eyes?” she said.
Chanel Sublimage Le Teint Ultimate Radiance Generating Cream Foundation, $135
While pricey, this Chanel Sublimage foundation is one of Markle’s favorites, providing good coverage without hiding her best features. “I never want to cover my freckles, so we just do a ‘wash’ of foundation in certain sections instead of over the entire face,” she told Birchbox.
Tea tree oil isn’t the only beauty product Markle takes with her when she’s on the go. This Make Up For Ever HD powder—which helps smooth the overall look of the skin and minimize pores—is compact and great for travel. “It lets your skin look shiny and fresh, but not greasy-shiny,” Markle told Allure.
The cult favorite NARS Orgasm blush, beloved for its soft pink glow and hint of shimmer, is another essential in Markle’s makeup bag. It’s “a perfect rosy flush tone that brightens the face,” she told Beauty Banter.
You don’t have to be a television star to look like one. While she was on set filming Suits, Markle frequently used Oribe Dry Texturizing spray, according to Birchbox. She said the trick is to bend forward, spray the dry shampoo, then “flip back hard” for “a little extra bounce.”
Her skin may look flawless, but not all of that glow is thanks to Mother Nature. Markle claims this affordable Nivea Skin Firming Hydration creammakes her skin look and feel amazing. “I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it,” she said.
Another Markle-approved product? Dr. Bronner’s Body Wash in lavender scent. “I love the smell and it lasts for such a long time,” she said. “The almond scent is quite nice too if your prefer something warm and sweet. I alternate between the two.”
To keep her skin feeling clean and fresh, she uses Bioré Daily Deep Pore Cleansing Cloths. They’re “great to keep in the car and on your nightstand when you have those horribly lazy nights that the thought of getting up to actually wash your face seems unbearable,” Markle said.
Fresh Sugar Advance Therapy Lip Treatment With SPF 15, $26
“I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm but this is the very best,” she said about this Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment. “Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it.”
Known for its ability to instantly brighten undereyes, this Yves Saint Laurent Touché Eclat Concealer is one of Meghan’s go-to beauty products. “If you’ve worked a 17-hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive. Relatively,” she joked.
Perfect for oily, dry, or sensitive skin, this rice enzyme powder leaves Meghan’s skin looking beautifully polished. “It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation,” she told Allure.
Meghan is also obsessed with this smoothing hair oil by Wella. “It smells like vacation and makes your hair slippery and touchable,” she told Beauty Banter. “I love this stuff! It also doubles as a pretty amazing body oil post bath.”
