Let's Talk About Meghan Markle's Natural, Flawless Makeup!
Like so many others, I watched Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex marry her Prince this week. The wedding was over the top, beautiful and perfectly fit for a Princess.
Beyond the dress, flowers, adorable Princess Charlotte and Prince George and of course, the handsome Prince who waited in anticipation for his Bride to walk down the aisle, I could not take my eyes off of Meghan Markle's MAKE UP! As many of you probably know, I am in love with a natural look and especially Beautycounter's Flawless in Five created by Makeup Artist Guru, Christy Coleman.
It was no surprise when just days after the Royal Wedding, it became known that the Duchess herself is a client of Beautycounter. It was even funnier when one of my client's texted me and asked if I thought the Duchess was wearing Flawless in Five on her wedding day! I would never state that Meghan Markle wore Beautycounter's cosmetics on her big day because that is untrue, but the natural and flawless finish that Meghan Markle is known for on a regularly basis is very much in line with Flawless in Five.
What I love about the Flawless in Five Cosmetics package from Beautycounter is the ability to create a beautiful, classic look in less than five minutes with high performing, safe cosmetics. Christy Coleman has created a simple routine that literally ANYONE can apply. If you don't have a consultant to help you choose your colours, don't worry! The website can help you with that. Light, Medium and Dark Skin Tones are matched perfectly with various shades and tones of the same products and include a Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation, Concealer Pen, Blush, Eyebrow Pencil, Mascara and Lip Gloss.
For anyone looking to re-create Meghan Markle's flawless finish using Flawless in Five ($180 CAN), here are my suggestions:
1) Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation in Sand or Honey
2) Concealer Pen in Light or Medium 1
3) Eyebrow Pencil in Medium or Dark
4) Volumizing Mascara (Black)
5) Blush in BLOOM/TULIP
6) Lip Gloss in Bare Shimmer
I know that applying makeup can be daunting, especially if you are used to wearing NO makeup - as so many of us busy women are. That said, a little makeup and five minutes in the morning can go long way! Heck, it might even land you a Prince.
