On May 19th, 2018, people around the globe tuned in to watch Meghan Markle and Prince Harry get married. This event was viewed by 18 million UK citizens, and around 29 million Americans. Despite the gorgeous location of the wedding, Meghan Markle’s makeup was one of the most talked about topics from that event. In fact, Twitter was flooded with millions of tweets complimenting her refreshingly natural look.
About the Look
Meghan Markle’s wedding day look was created by Dior’s Daniel Martin. Her makeup allowed her freckles to show through and featured a subtle smoky eye and soft pink lips. This look was both refreshing and surprising to viewers around the world who have become accustomed to seeing full coverage makeup.
Although a trial run never happened, Meghan’s look was planned on purpose. She didn’t want her makeup to draw attention away from her dress.
How to Recreate the Meghan Markle Wedding Day Look
Blushington’s makeup artists can help you recreate the iconic Meghan Markle wedding makeup look. Our team has years of experience and knows how to properly balance colors and textures to create the perfect look for any event.
For the Meghan Markle wedding day look, we suggest using a combination of high quality makeup from some of the world’s leading brands. The quality of makeup used is extremely important as it helps ensure a flawless, lasting finish. Using high quality makeup also helps avoid skin irritation and reactions, which can negatively affect the final result.
Blushington recently recreated Meghan Markle’s iconic wedding day look. Although shades will vary person to person, the following is the makeup our team used to create the look seen in the video.
Prior to makeup application, our professional makeup artists prepped the skin with Beauty Rx Nourishing Moisture Cream and a gentle exfoliating eye cream. This step helped create the perfect canvas.
Following skin prep, we used BECCA Ultimate Coverage foundation in Noisette and Core. We then used a medium EC OS concealer by Kevyn Aucoin. To create the smoky eye, our team member used a combination of BECCA Ombre Rouge and Ombre Nude eye shadow, Stila Cosmetics Lionfish eyeliner, and Stila Cosmetics Smudge Pot in black.
For blush and contour, we used Stila Cosmetics Camellia and Lillium blush topped with Girlactik Star Blush in Florence. We finished it off with BELLA Multi-Tasking Perfecting Powder in Tan. To recreate Meghan Markle’s lips, we use minimal Stila lip liner in Patina.
Our team member then applied BECCA Multi-Tasking Powder and “Un” Powder by RMS. We used BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone and Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow Face Illuminator in Crystal Clear for highlighter.
For the eyebrow, we used BrowGal 03 and Instatint Dark Hair 01. We finished the look off with Black Magic mascara by Eyeko.
