Suits star and soon-to-be-royalty Meghan Markle (okay, so that may be a tad presumptuous) is what you’d call a “natural beauty.” Gorgeous features, classic style, and never too too made up, the 35-year-old actor’s usual look is characterized by glowing skin, prominent freckles, and sultry eye makeup in earthy tones.
Her makeup artist Min Min Ma recently gave the world a glimpse into the process, as well as the collection of products she uses to achieve the look on Prince Harry‘s flame.
“Meghan has naturally gorgeous skin, so I do very light skin makeup to ensure her freckles remain visible and [use] a bit of under-eye concealing,” Ma told E!. “Also, I try to use as little face powder as [possible] to ensure her skin is looking glowy at all times.”
So that’s the strategy, less is more for Markel. Here are the products Ma uses:
First she preps the star’s eyes with some soothing oil serum from Decleor.
Then it’s a pair of G.M Collin’s Instant Radiance Eye Patches, which she uses to “catch shadow fallout” before using any eye or skin makeup.
On Markle’s body — including her incredible legs — Ma uses a nourishing body cream “for a moisturizing and glowy effect.”
To enhance her complexion, it’s a tiny bit of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, which, truth be told, is already a staple in our makeup bag. Markle’s shade is #50, but it’s up to each woman to find what suits her skin tone.
That’s touched up with an Yves Saint Laurent radiance boosting pen.
And, finally, Ma enhances Markle’s naturally sun-kissed, radiant complexion by artfully applying some Jane Iredale bronzer in peaches and cream. Again, this may not be the shade for you, but it sure works on Markle.
All in all, it’s a relatively simple process that creates a stunning effect on the actress. Maybe it’ll work on you too. There’s really only one way to find out.
