Meghan Markle has sent waves through the fashion industry with her swoon-worthy coats and her classic style, but it's not just her sartorial choices that are starting trends.

Markle loves a fresh, dewy look so much that even her wedding day makeup was ultra-natural. Makeup artist and Dior brand ambassador Daniel Martin (who's also a close friend of Markle's) used only a few key products before the now Duchess of Sussex walked down the aisle.

We've gathered all the essential products you need — including some of Markle's beauty go-tos — so you can channel your inner duchess.

Maybelline New York

Want Markle’s full, fluttery lashes? Her former makeup artist Lydia Sellers recently told Hello! that the Duchess introduced her to this drugstore steal and that it’s one of her go-to formulas for a long, voluminous fringe.

Charlotte Tilbury

Rumour has it that this nude matte lipstick by Brit celeb makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury is one of Markle’s favourite lip colours — so much so it was apparently the shade she wore for her engagement photos.

Dior brand ambassador and makeup artist Daniel Martin used a go-with-everything eyeshadow palette on Markle for the royal wedding. This versatile compact contains eight neutral shadows and an eyeshadow primer, so you can create an ultra-natural eye look like she wore to tie the knot, or bump it up for a bit more drama.

Backstage Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Neutrals, $59, (available June 15th)

Markle’s skin is always glowing, but it never looks too made up or like she’s packed on the highlighter. This all-natural, coconut oil-based cream highlighter will give you that same lit-from-within glow.

Living Luminizer, $48,

RMS Living Luminizer

Flawless in Fifteen

With two bronzers, two blushes, one highlighter and a finishing powder, this palette has got you covered so you can easily recreate that natural Markle sparkle. Each powder is finely milled so it leaves a subtle glow to the skin, without looking cakey.

Natural Knockout Faceology Face Palette, $38, (available June 7th)

Flawless in Fifteen Natural Knockout Faceology Face Palette


This cult blush is a beauty editor favourite and according to Beauty Banter, it’s one of Markle’s top five beauty essentials as it provides the perfect rosy flush.

Orgasm Blush, $38,

NARS Orgasm Blush


This moisturizing sheer foundation contains opalescent spheres to add a luminous filter-effect finish to the skin. It feels completely weightless on the skin (hence the name) allowing you to buff it on to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles while still letting freckles shine through.

Next to Nothing Face Colour, $39,

MAC Next to Nothing Face Colour


Markle has called out Fresh lip balms as her number one pick for soft, hydrated lips. This treatment provides your pucker with 24-hours of moisture and the soft pink shade offers just the right amount of colour.

Urban Decay

Rich browns and copper eyeshadows have become synonymous with Markle’s beauty routine. She’s often seen sporting neutral hues on her lids at public appearances. This classic palette serves up 12 flattering hues which you can mix and match for unlimited looks. Shades like Buck, Darkhorse and Hustle seem particularily Markle-esque.

Naked Palette, $66,

Yves Saint Laurent​

When asked what her all-time fave beauty product was, Markle mentioned this do-it-all concealer slash illuminator and it’s easy to see why. This magic pen helps to camouflage dark circles and adds a soft radiance to the skin.

Touche​ Éclat Concealer, $51,

Nude by Nature

This brow mascara has a small, easy to use brush for naturally groomed brows. The formula is lightly tinted to provide just enough colour and hold so your brows look like the best natural version of themselves — à la Duchess of Sussex.
