Meghan Markle has her signature effortless, glowy makeup look down pat. But that's not to say she doesn't switch things up from time to time—like last January, when she rocked a red lip to the Cirque du Soleil Totem premiere. And we have a feeling that Meg and Harry's decision to step down as Senior Royals will allow her to take more fashion and beauty risks from now on. (After all, Kensington Palace has some pretty strict rules.)
Here, 7 Meghan Markle makeup looks we can't stop thinking about.
Markle opted for a little more makeup than her traditional barely-there look, and it totally paid off. In a 2014 interview with Allure, the Duchess of Sussex mentioned her affinity for NARS blush in Orgasm, so we have to wonder whether it was responsible for her flushed cheeks in this look.
2. Dramatic Eyes + Bronzed Skin + Nude Lips
MM's eyes totally pop (even beneath her fascinator) thanks to bold eyeliner and mascara. We're guessing Markle's makeup artist applied a few layers of her favorite mascara (Maybelline's Lash Sensational Luscious formula) to make them really stand out.
3. Defined Brows + Smoky Lids + Rosy Lips
The Duchess of Sussex surprised fans (and no doubt, the royal family) when she stepped out for Cirque du Soleil's Totem premiere in this decidedly un-Meghan-like makeup. We hope she rocks more looks like this in 2020.
4. Glowy Complexion + Long Lashes + Pink Lips
Did you really think we could make this list without including Markle's wedding day makeup? Her clear, glowy complexion, long sultry lashes and pink lips were *chef's kiss*.
5. Defined Brows + Dewy Skin + Peachy Lips
We're pretty sure that the former actress's glow here has a lot to do with the fact that her Senior Royal duties are up on March 31st, but a good highlight will have (almost) the same effect.
6. Full Lashes + Light Blush + Glossy Lips
The Duchess went classic for her visit with Irish President Michael Higgins in 2018. She enhanced her natural beauty by adding volume to her lashes, a little blush to her cheeks and some gloss on her lips.
7. Smoky Eyes + Even Complexion + Bold Lips
This look dates back to 2016, before Meghan and Harry even started dating. We have a feeling we'll see more of Markle's bold, glamorous side this year.
