9 Beauty Products That Meghan Markle Swears By
If we’re not coveting her low-key—but chic—style, then we’re crushing on her amazing dog-whispering skills. And yet another reason why we love Meghan Markle? Her totally achievable skin care routine. While most royals keep their beauty picks hush-hush, Meghan previously revealed some of her secrets while promoting her hit show Suits. Here’s the scoop on what beauty products her (future) royal highness relies on—crown jewel budget not required.
YSL Touche Éclat Concealer
In an interview with The Lady Loves Couture, Markle explains why this is her absolute favorite beauty product of all time: “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.” (Girl after our own heart.)
Yves Saint Laurent ($38)
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Luminous Modern-Matte Lipstick
Now that she’s an (almost) Royal, Markle sticks to a relatively muted lip. But that doesn’t mean it’s boring. Recently, we learned that her hue of choice is the mauvy-brown Very Victoria by Charlotte Tilbury. (We’ll take ten.)

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
“I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm, but this is the very best,” Markle revealed to Beauty Banter. With its antioxidant-rich formula and subtle tint, it’s not hard to see why this best seller is the future royal’s favorite. “Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it,” she added. Aaaand now we’re thinking about kissing Prince Harry.
Laura Mercier Illuminating Primer
Although she doesn’t wear a ton of foundation, Meghan is a fan of Laura Mercier’s ultra-lightweight Illuminating Primer, which she layers over her moisturizer for a dewy glow.

The most versatile item in your pantry is also one of Markle’s go-to beauty picks. She told Shape magazine, “I have been using a lot of coconut oil of late, on my skin, on my hair as a deep conditioner, and then even to cook with.”

Tea Tree Oil
Further proof that Markle is both thrifty and practical: She opts for this wallet-friendly oil to tackle everything from breakouts to bug bites. Talking to Allure magazine she said, “The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea tree oil. It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all. It’s inexpensive, it’s small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time.” Genius.

Nivea Q10 Firming Body Lotion
Markle knows that hydration is the key to a glowing complexion and recently revealed that she relies on this drugstore staple to nourish her skin. “I use it religiously,” she said. “It’s honestly my favorite 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.”
Bioré Cleansing Cloths
Sure, you know that removing your makeup every night is essential to prevent clogged pores and breakouts, but sometimes it’s such a drag. And apparently, Markle agrees, which is why she keeps these hypoallergenic wipes on hand. “They’re great to keep in the car and on your nightstand when you have those horribly lazy nights that the thought of getting up to actually wash your face seems unbearable,” she said and even revealed that she buys them in bulk. Royals, they’re just like us.
