As a new mom the Duchess of Sussex is likely interested in taking shortcuts to looking fabulous in a flash. Since she’s up throughout the night with new baby Archie, she’s probably pressed for time and a bit sleep deprived during her waking hours, thus, it’s imperative to have a no-fuss beauty routine.
To get royal ready in a hurry, follow Meghan Markle’s Easy 5 Minute Beauty Routine:
Meghan relies on La Mer The Balm Intense to make sure her peepers look perfect. This cult favorite keeps Meghan’s under-eye area smooth and supple with a triple concentration of marine elixirs as well as fermented algae that softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, Marine De-Puff Ferment soothes tired skin and a special lifting ferment increases collagen production. With an ultralight consistency, this cream sinks in quickly for a smoother, brighter appearance–which is perfect for Meghan’s new life as a busy mom and full-time royal.
Meghan also never misses a chance to give her lashes some serious star power as she told Allure, she loves Revitalash for making her lashes luxe and long. Meghan claims this potent product helps her lashes be “as long as they ever could be.” Perfect for applying at night, this lash-enhancing serum is infused with nutrient-rich botanicals and time-release peptides to revive and illuminate lash beauty for improved strength, shine and elasticity. The duchess could even skip the daytime mascara and just use this lash potion to save more time.
Before going on mulberry walks around Frogmore Cottage, Meghan likely sticks to applying some tried and true favorites like the Tatcha Brightening Serum. This hydrating, brightening serum is powered by time-tested Asian botanicals to bring color clarity and radiance to the skin. The elixir contains licorice root, jujuba, scutellaria and silk extracts as well as squalane and HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex, a proprietary blend of rice bran, green tea and red algae extract.
If she has to leave her cozy cottage, the duchess surely opts for a super fast makeup routine. As she told the Allure magazine, “My routine is very simple — I call it the five-minute face. It’s just Touche Éclat, curled lashes, mascara, Chap Stick, and a little bit of blush.” Meghan claimed she loves the concealer as it offers a quick way to brighten and disguise imperfections with its weightless coverage and light reflecting properties.
Meghan’s other favorite product to always have on hand? Nars Blush in Orgasm. Meghan told the beauty publication that the pretty pink cheek stain is ideal for on and off camera. She said, “I use it on and off camera because it gives you a nice glow from within.” The peachy pink powder boasts a perfect golden shimmer.
Finally, after applying her favorite serums and some concealer to spots and under-eye circles, Meghan curls her lashes and applies Diorshow Iconic Mascara before getting out the door.
If Archie’s mom needs touch ups throughout the day she relies on Make Up for Ever HD Powder. She says, “It lets your skin look shiny and fresh, but not greasy-shiny.” And she never leaves home without Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment which she says keeps her pout in perfect shape. The former actress said, “I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm, but this is the very best,” she said of the lip treatment. “Soft, kissable, buttery lips.”
