Meghan Markle has her signature effortless, glowy makeup look down pat. But that's not to say she doesn't switch things up from time to time. (We’re still not over the red lip she wore to the Cirque du Soleil Totem premiere back in 2019.) And with Meg and Harry attending the Platinum Jubilee over the weekend, we wanted to take a moment to highlight nine of our all-time favorite Meghan Markle makeup looks throughout the years.

1. Dramatic Lashes + Rosy Cheeks + Nude Lips
When we found out Meg and Harry were attending the Platinum Jubilee, we had one thing on our minds (other than the Queen finally meeting Lilibet of course): Meghan's beauty look. And she did not disappoint at Service of Thanksgiving, rocking her signature nude lips and rosy cheeks. But our favorite part of her glam? Her extra fluttery lashes, which come courtesy of a really good mascara and her longtime MUA, Daniel Martin.
2. Blue Shimmer Eyeshadow + Rosy Cheeks + Pink Lips
We simply can't forget Meghan's last official royal engagement back in 2020. Her green Emilia Wickstead dress definitely deserves all the attention, but the bold blue eyeshadow she wore with it deserves love too. The contrasting but complementary colors blend beautifully together, and adding her signature nude blush and lip combo to the mix makes this look a memorable one to mark her time as a Duchess.
3. Dark Liner + Glowy Cheeks + Pink Lips
Markle opted for a little more makeup than her traditional barely-there look during a visit at the University of Chichester in England, and it totally paid off. In a 2014 interview with Allure, the Duchess of Sussex mentioned her affinity for NARS blush in Orgasm, so we have to wonder whether it was responsible for her flushed cheeks in this look.
4. Dramatic Eyes + Bronzed Skin + Nude Lips
MM's eyes totally pop (even beneath her fascinator) thanks to bold eyeliner and mascara. We're guessing Markle's makeup artist applied a few layers of her favorite mascara (Maybelline's Lash Sensational Luscious formula) to make them really stand out.
5. Defined Brows + Smoky Lids + Rosy Lips
6. Glowy Complexion + Long Lashes + Pink Lips
7. Defined Brows + Dewy Skin + Peachy Lips
We're pretty sure that the former actress's glow here has a lot to do with the fact that she was finally saying goodbye to her Senior Royal duties, but a good highlight will have (almost) the same effect.
