While Meghan Markle has retreated into private life after intense scrutiny as a British royal, the world still watches her every move. Every public appearance spurs a frenzy of reports on her hair, clothes, and even the colour of her nails. It's no wonder she's always put-together – especially after years as an actress spending countless hours in expert skincare and makeup hands. Though Meghan is technically a Duchess, she certainly presents herself like any storybook princess would: With beauty, elegance, humility, and style. Want to emulate Meghan’s look? Keep reading.

She knows that moisturised skin is the first step to camera-ready skin

There is no doubt Meghan is putting her A-game forward when it comes to her appearance (just look at her skin in every paparazzi photo, it’s radiant). When talking to ET, Spencer shared that,"[Meghan has] always loved La Mer and she was great about her skincare routine.” Meghan has also gushed about her love for Kate Somerville Quench.

She also knows that you cannot have polished skin unless you exfoliate

“I really love the Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder. It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation,” Meghan told Allure in 2014.

She’s serious about keeping her freckles visible

"To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot," she told Allure in 2017. When sharing her favourite foundation and her strategy for application, Meghan told Birchbox, "I never want to cover my freckles, so we just do a 'wash' of foundation in certain sections instead of over the entire face.”

Her makeup artist would use this concealer for the most natural finish

To reinforce Meghan’s preference to err on the side of caution when it comes to priming her face, Spencer told ET, "I remember using Cle de Peau concealers with her because they're silky smooth but they offer coverage where you need them, but they look very natural on camera or in person.”

She has no need for lash extensions thanks to this serum

When talking to Allure, she revealed she uses a conditioning treatment. “I use Revitalash on my eyelashes, and I swear they are as long as they could ever be."

She uses makeup remover wipes just like you

When asked by BeautyBanter what product she buys in bulk, Markle admitted, “Biore Cleansing Cloths for the face. 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.”

When it comes to makeup, she prefers a neutral palate

"Whenever I'd work with her,” Barnes shared with ET, “she'd like to highlight her fresh, radiant skin. We'd do a very glowing, fresh-faced skin. We'd use earthy tones, colours that enhanced her natural beauty, rather than a lot of obvious colour choices. We'd stick with earthy tones. A lot of rich, warm tones and that really flattered her. It helped her just look radiant and fresh." And according to various sources, Meghan’s favourite nude lip colour is Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria – a taupe nude.

Her hair is always coiffed to perfection thanks to some trusted smoothing products

One of the best accessories a person can wear is gorgeous hair, and Meghan has mastered the art. She is a self-professed fan of Kerastase haircare and uses their Oleo Relax products “religiously.” Though we only ever see her with perfectly sleek and straight hair, albeit sometimes with a slight wave, Meghan actually has naturally curly hair. Sellers, used both the Kerastase line of products to “keep everything smooth” as well as the Smooth Again cream by Kevin Murphy.
