Meghan Markle’s drugstore highlighter has been revealed and we can’t wait to try the hack that mimics the Duchess’ fresh-faced glow with a simple inexpensive balm.
The Duchess of Sussex has been the inspiration behind many of our recent makeup finds, from the lipstick Meghan Markle wore for one of her most iconic moments to her speedy concealer trick, we love the Duchess’ make-up hacks. But it’s Meghan Markle’s skincare that is truly awe-inspiring as the Duchess always had fantastic blemish-free, bright and natural skin—but what’s the secret behind her beauty?
We already know that she’s a fan of Nars Orgasm blush and wore Dior for her wedding day to create a nude lip, softly defined eyes, and barely-there base using the best foundation that let her freckles shine through.
But it turns out that the lustrous sheen atop the Duchess’ cheekbones isn’t down to any kind of highlighting stick, but rather a cheap skincare find.
The Duchess of Sussex’s makeup artist Daniel Martin, who created her wedding look, told E! Online, “a lot of my highlighting is done with skincare.” And when it comes to creating Meghan’s fresh-faced glow he explained he uses Eucerin’s Aquaphor.
This multi-use balm contains petroleum jelly (a bit like vaseline), alongside glycerin and bisabolol (a soothing extract from chamomile) to help heal cracked skin.
