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.

Meghan Markle’s Makeup Artist on How to Achieve the Duchess’s ‘Glowy’ Zoom Look

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.

Get the look: Dior Mascara ($30); Nars Blush ($32); Charlotte Tilbury lipstick ($34)

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.

Get the look: Colourpop eyeshadow ($6); Juvia's Place lipstick ($15); Laura Mercier blush ($34)

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.

Get the look: Rimmel eyeliner ($4); Maybelline mascara ($6); NARS blush ($32); bareMinerals lipstick ($20)

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.

Get the look: Rimmel eyeliner ($7); Maybelline mascara ($10); Charlotte Tilbury lipstick ($34); HOURGLASS bronzer ($56)

5. Defined Brows + Smoky Lids + Rosy Lips

The Duchess of Sussex surprised fans (and no doubt, the royal family) when she stepped out for Cirque du Soleil's Totem premiere in this decidedly un-Meghan-like makeup.

Get the look: Revlon lipstick ($9); Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz ($23); Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow ($53)

6. Glowy Complexion + Long Lashes + Pink Lips

Did you really think we could make this list without including Markle's wedding day makeup? Her clear, glowy complexion, long sultry lashes and pink lips were *chef's kiss*.

Get the look: Ardell individual lashes ($7); NARS lip balm ($28); bareMinerals tinted moisturizer ($34)

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.

Get the look:L'Oreal lipstick ($6); Maybelline highlighter ($11); Bobbi Brown brow pencil ($45)

8. Full Lashes + Light Blush + Glossy Lips

The Duchess went classic for her visit with Irish President Michael Higgins in 2018. She enhanced her natural beauty by adding volume to her lashes, a little blush to her cheeks and a touch of gloss on her lips.

Get the look: L'Oreal Mascara ($7); Milani blush ($7); bareMinerals lip gloss ($20)

9. Smoky Eyes + Even Complexion + Bold Lips

This look dates all the way back to 2016, before Meghan and Harry even started dating. We gotta say, we love the bold Hollywood glam on her.

Get the look: Revlon lipstick ($9); NYX eyeshadow ($18); Stila eyeliner ($23); Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer ($49)
