We're Calling It: Meghan Markle Will Wear These 8 Products On Her Wedding Day
The Royal Wedding is fast approaching (May 19 if you need a refresh), and the associated fervor is increasing in tandem. The focus of the public's fascination: Meghan Markle, former model and actress and the soon-to-be newest member of the British Monarchy. And while some are interested in getting her actual nose, others (AKA us) just want to know each and every beauty product she'll be wearing on the big day.
So, although we don't have any exact confirmations, we think we can make a few well-informed guesses based on her low-maintenance aesthetic, typical look trajectory, and interviews we've read in which Markle has dished on a handful of her all-time favourite beauty products. Plus, there's always the Queen's favorites to take into account. Keep scrolling for eight beauty products we predict Meghan Markle will be wearing down the aisle.
According to Harper's Bazaar, only certain nail polish colours are allowed within the Royal Family. And more specifically, only barely-there colors like the Queen's own favourite hue, Essie Nail Color in Ballet Slippers ($15). (Reportedly, she's been wearing the shade for over 30 years.) And, Markle has apparently been spotted out and about in a very similar colour, so we're taking bets it might just be her go-to pick for her wedding day. That, or possibly the brand's other royally-incline pick in Allure ($17) which The Duchess of Cambridge wore on her own special day.
In an interview with Beauty Banter, Markle shared a few of her all-time favourite products. Apparently, this exact eyelash curler (it's also an industry cult-favourite) is her key to looking "instantly awake." A given for your wedding day.
"I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm but this is the very best. Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it," said Markle in the same interview. We're guessing she'll use it to prep her pout for one special lipstick in particular...
FYI: Meghan Markle's perpetually nude-lacquered lips has kept the nude lip trend alive and kicking. In fact, many beauty brands think Markle is solely responsible for an uptick in their sales. This aptly named lippie from Charlotte Tilbury is said to be her favourite and looks very similar to the shade she wore in her and Prince Harry's engagement photos.
"I don’t wear foundation unless I’m filming so this is what I put on every day after moisturizer to give my skin a dewy glow. It’s not sparkly, it’s true to its name…"illuminating.” She told Beauty Banter. We have a sneaking suspicion Markle will be wearing foundation on May 19, and have even stronger suspicions this beloved primer will be layered strategically underneath.
And on top of that? We predict Markle will opt for her go-to blush for "a perfect rosy flush." Just as long as the Queen doesn't know the cheeky name, no?
"It blends, it’s compact, and if you’ve worked a 17 hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive. Relatively." Markle joked. And yes, this is the exact same staying power a Royal bride-to-be needs in her makeup arsenal pre-aisle.
Coming in at an ultra-affordable $6, this is Markle's go-to drugstore pick for a hydrated (and affordable) body glow. No, we're not predicting the soon-to-be-bride will be showing a lot of skin while walking down the aisle, but we still have a hunch she'll prep her skin with the formula beforehand.
