ESC: Meghan Markle


Meghan Markle may have recently shut down her lifestyle site, but her signature beauty look can now be yours…forever.  

Whether it's on her USA Network series Suits or at a promotional event, the 35-year-old actress is often radiating with glowing skin, bronzed cheeks and sultry eye makeup. It's a look celeb makeup artist Min Min Ma loved creating on Prince Harry's girlfriend for an appearance on The Today Show in July of 2016.

"A sun-kissed complexion, soft smoky eyes in bronzy, earthy tones and soft nude pink/coral lips," described the makeup artist, brought out her eyes and complemented her natural features without overwhelming them.

Given her relationship with the British royal, the actress is notoriously mum with press, but she did open up to Allure magazine about one beauty grievance: "To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed, and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot," she said. "For all my freckle-faced friends out there, I will share with you something my dad told me when I was younger: 'A face without freckles is a night without stars.'"

So, how does the actress get even coverage that works for her skin tone? The makeup artist had a few helpful tips.

"Meghan has naturally gorgeous skin, so I did light skin makeup to ensure her freckles remained visible and [used] a bit of under-eye concealer," said Min Min, who has also worked with Zosia Mamet, Debra Messing and Hailee Steinfeld. "I used as little face powder as [possible] to ensure her skin was looking glowy."

When you're a natural beauty, it doesn't take much. Still, there are always a crop of products out there that can enhance your glow. In this particular case with Meghan, Min Min used the products below to really complement the star's skin tone and features.
