Meghan’s skin always had a healthy shine even before she was pregnant. Highlighters, makeup that attracts light, can help get that appearance—but Meghan’s longtime friend and wedding day makeup artist Daniel Martin says he used a more natural, and cheaper, way to get the same look. With her love of a simple and easy beauty routine, Meghan certainly approved. “A lot of my highlighting is done with skin-care,” Martin told E! News. “Before highlighters, you would do highlighting with Aquaphor, which will give you that same texture [when applied] on the high points of the face.” Just a couple of dabs of this skin ointment on the cheeks brightens her whole face.

Tatcha Skin Mist
Meghan’s overall makeup rule: To allow her true appearance to shine through. “That was really important to Meghan—to always feel and look authentic and natural,” her former makeup artist Lydia Sellers told People. So, she chooses products that will illuminate her skin. “She loves Tatcha—they have a great, dewy skin mist that you spray on after makeup application to give a really unique, fresh glow,” Sellers says. Her makeup may be subtle, but here’s how Meghan just broke royal fashion rules in a big way.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara in Very Black
Meghan is known for her amazingly long lashes, and she has two tricks for getting them. “I would never be able to live without my eyelash curler,” she told Birchbox in a video. “If your lashes are like that [mimics open eyes] you suddenly look a bit more alive.” Secondly, she uses this inexpensive mascara to make her lashes look even fuller, as Sellers told Hello! magazine. “Meghan actually introduced me to a drugstore mascara, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara,” she says. “This mascara really helps to amplify your lashes and polish off the entire look. It’s great for full volume and lengthening, the formula is super hydrating.”
