She Prioritizes Glowing Skin Over Lots of Makeup

Meghan’s luminescence has earned its own moniker: Markle’s sparkle. According to her longtime makeup artist Daniel Martin that famous glow can be attributed to a golden highlighter that is strategically placed under eyes and along cheekbones.

She Keeps Her Hair Unfussy

There’s nothing stiff or stodgy about Meghan’s mane. In fact, you’ll notice that her go to ‘do usually consists of face-framing (read: cheek slimming) waves and tons of shine. One of her former stylists revealed that she favors the Kérastase Oleo Relax line to keep her strands smooth and photo-ready at all times.

She Goes For Head-to-toe Ensembles

Nine times out of ten, you’ll find Markle in sleek monochromatic outfits, which have an elongating effect. Bonus points for tailored accents like a matching belt that will cinch in your waist and create a flattering silhouette no matter which angle you’re being photographed at.

She Favors Bold Palettes

Want to pop on camera? Go for a bright yellow, a candy pink or a brilliant cerulean and you’ll be the star of the show. Add a pair of nude heels to visually lengthen your frame.

She Angles Her Body When Standing

Speaking of shoes, if you look down at Meghan’s feet she often crosses them right at her ankles and puts her weight on her front foot to create a slight angle when facing the camera. Keep your arms loose (not perched on your hips) for a less staged pose.

She Slants Her Legs When Sitting

Borrowing a page from her sister-in-law, Meghan has adopted the “duchess slant,” which you can copy by clasping your knees and ankles together and tilting them to one side. It’s the perfect move for when you’re wearing a dress or skirt because it makes your legs look slimmer (and protects your modesty).

She Keeps Her Smile Relaxed

The number one attribute to Markle’s signature sparkle? Her sense of ease. Even in sky-high heels and form-fitting dresses, she comes across as relaxed, thanks in part to her natural, not-trying-too-hard smile. In other words, don’t duck-face or Vanna White it. Just think of something actually funny and let your god-given happy face shine through.
