Being a royal has some serious perks – especially in the beauty department. With the best makeup and hairstylists literally at her beck and call, it’s safe to say Meghan Markle has a few tricks up her sleeve for looking fresh-faced at all times (five months preggo, included.)
So when we cottoned on to her genius hack for hiding tired eyes, we knew we needed to share… Immediately.
In pics taken at the Remembrance Sunday service at Cenotaph, the Duchess seems to have ditched her trademark choccie brown eyeliner, in favour of a subtle flesh tone.
Celeb makeup artist Francesca Abrahamovitch told the Daily Mail: “Megan appears to be wearing a nude eyeliner in her lower waterline. I love this look and use it a lot on my clients, especially when they have super-early starts. It also hides any redness or tiredness making it look as though you’ve had a full eight hours sleep – even when the reality is very different.”
If you’re running on empty and are keen to replicate this look, there are a few things to keep in mind.
“Simply trace your white or flesh-toned pencil along the area just above your lower lashes and pair with mascara,” said Francesca. “If you still want smoulder, smudge your dark pencil below it. As long as you steer clear of that all-important waterline, you’ll maintain the eye-brightening illusion.”
Easy as pie. Now, to find the perfect pencil...
