While we weren't blessed with Markle genes, you can get a slice of her lifestyle by shopping her favourite make-up....

Even if you’re not riding the royal wedding wave right now, there’s no denying that Meghan Markle is exquisitely beautiful.

From her perfectly blow-dried hair to her razor sharp jawline, the woman looks great whatever the weather.

Unless you’re prepared to mainline your nearest plastic surgeon and shell out several thousands of pounds, you won’t be looking like her any time soon – but fortunately, you can get a slice of the Markle lifestyle by shopping some of her favourite beauty products.

Read on to find out the make-up and skincare products Meghan rates above all others…

Meghan Markle makeup

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria, £24, John Lewis

Inspired by Victoria Beckham, no less, Meghan’s go-to lipstick shade was created by beauty mogul, Charlotte Tilbury. The perfect balance of pink and brown nude, it’s reportedly the shade she wore for the royal engagement photocall, and is now surely at least as popular as the iconic Pillow Talk shade.

Laura Mercier Illuminating Foundation Primer, £30, John Lewis

‘I don’t wear foundation unless I’m filming so this is what I put on every day after moisturiser to give my skin a dewy glow. It’s not sparkly, it’s true to its name… “Illuminating”, she told Beauty Banter. The primer comes in two shades, a slightly pink pearlescent formula and bronze for a summery glow.

NARS Orgasm Blush, £24, Fabled

In a recently resurfaced interview with Beauty Banter, Meghan tipped NARS’ Orgasm as one of her five can’t-live-without products due to its ‘perfect rosy flush tone that brightens the face.’ The pinky, peachy blush with golden undertones is one of the most universally flattering blush shades on the market, so it’s really no wonder Ms Markle is a fan.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, £42, John Lewis

Meghan favours a glowy, healthy formula and has one specific foundation rule. ‘Every time I’d do her make-up, she’d say “Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don’t want a ton of foundation,” her former MUA Lydia Sellers told Refinery 29.

Although she doesn’t wear loads and loads of the stuff, Armani Luminous Silk was always Sellers’ go-to to perfect Meghan’s skin. Well-loved in the celebrity world, this one counts the likes of Kim Kardashian, Cate Blanchett and Rashida Jones as its fans. A medium thickness liquid formula, it leaves skin with a healthy glow and has buildable coverage.

YSL Touché Éclat Complexion Highlighter, £25, Fabled

Six of these iconic pens are sold every minute (or one every ten seconds), so it’s not a huge surprise Meghan Markle is also a fan. ‘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,’ she told Beauty Banter.

Diorshow Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara, £27, Boots

‘My favourite mascara is Diorshow Iconic,’ Meghan told Allure back in 2014, noting that she first discovered a lot of her favourite products on the set of Suits. This one is great for super lifted, eye-catching jet black lashes to really make your peepers pop.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner, £22, Boots

‘I use Chanel Cassis Eyeliner on my upper lash line and water line, and the touch of shimmer powder adds a brightness and sparkle,’ Meghan said in her Beauty Banter interview. ‘Even if I have no make-up on, I am likely to apply concealer and a bit of shimmer in the corners of my eye.’ Cassis is a rich purple liner, as Meghan rightly recommends, is great for tightlining and defining the eye.

Make-Up For Ever HD Powder, £26, Feelunique

A photo-ready look requires a photo finish powder, and Meghan says she loves Make-Up For Ever’s – ‘It lets your skin look shiny and fresh, but not greasy-shiny,’ she told Allure.

Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment, £21.50, John Lewis

‘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,’ she told Beauty Banter. And we have to agree – the smooth balm comes in a range of gorgeous tints and has the added benefit of SPF. Not too sticky, not too matte.

Meghan Markle skincare

Nivea Body Q10 Firming Lotion, £4.79, Boots

‘I use this religiously,’ the former Suits star told Beauty Banter. ‘It’s honestly my favourite lotion on the market, it’s so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it,’ she added.

Meghan Markle hair products

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, £41, Space NK

Meghan’s hair never looks limp or lifeless; it’s always bouncy, and that’s probably down to this guy. ‘When my hair is feeling a little weighted, Suanne, my hair artist on set, has me bend forward and she sprays a little Oribe Dry Texurizing Spray, and then has me “flip back hard” to give my hair a little extra bounce,’ she said in an inteivew with Birchbox.

Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense for Thick Hair, £31.70, Lookfantastic

According to Beauty Banter, Meghan says that she ‘religiously’ uses both ‘Masquintense and the Oleo Relax line’. The Masquintense treatment mask comes in two separate versions for both thick and fine hair (we reckon Meg uses the former), for when your locks need a repairing deep moisture boost.

Needless to say, Meghan Markle’s beauty judgments are pretty solid.

We wonder how many of these will feature in her bridal look come May the 19th?
