1. Ysl Touche Éclat Concealer

In an interview with The Lady Loves Couture, Markle explained 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.)

2. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Luminous Modern-matte Lipstick

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.)

3. Tatcha Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder

Markle loves this exfoliant so much, she even included it in her baby shower gift bag.

4. Make Up For Ever Ultra Hd Microfinishing Loose Powder

Markle raved about the product in an interview with Allure, saying, “It lets your skin look shiny and fresh, but not greasy-shiny.” Oh, and did we mention it’s only $20?

5. 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.

6. Kopari Coconut Melt

Coconut oil is also one of Markle’s go-to beauty picks. “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,” she said in an interview with Shape magazine.

7. KÉrastase Nutritive Mask

“I use this line religiously; Kerastase Masquintense,” she told Beauty Banter. “It smells like vacation and makes your hair slippery and touchable. I love this stuff!” *Adds to cart*

8. Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment Lip Balm

With its antioxidant-rich formula and subtle tint, it’s not hard to see why this best seller is the actress’s favorite. “Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it,” she says in an interview with Beauty Banter.

9. Beautyblender

Markle’s former hairstylist and makeup artist, Lydia F. Sellers, said the duchess swears by the makeup applicator because “it’s really easy to sheer out.”
