Meghan Markle makeup: here’s how to recreate her natural look
Meghan Markle is known for her elegant, natural makeup, perfect for women over 40 who want to show off their beauty. Here are some tips and tricks to achieve the iconic makeup look!
Start with a clean and moisturized face
Before applying makeup, it’s important to cleanse your skin and apply a moisturizer to create a smooth, hydrated base. A good beauty routine (or skin care routine) is necessary for makeup application. And especially to look younger! Indeed, proper moisturizing of the face helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Besides, the haircut is just as important for a youthful look!
Use a primer
A primer helps smooth the surface of your skin and create a more even canvas for your makeup. It can also help your makeup last longer throughout the day.
Apply foundation sparingly
Meghan Markle is known for her radiant, natural skin, so it’s important to apply foundation sparingly. Use a foundation brush or makeup sponge (beauty blender) to apply a thin layer all over your face, blending it well into your neck and hairline.
Use a concealer to cover any imperfections or dark circles under your eyes. Meghan Markle often uses concealer that is slightly lighter than her skin tone to brighten her eye area.
Contour and highlight
Use a contour powder or cream to define your cheekbones, jawline and nose. Then, use a highlighter to add a touch of glow to your cheekbones, nose, brow bone, and cupid’s bow.
Fill in your eyebrows
Meghan Markle has full, well-shaped eyebrows, which help frame her face and give a neat finish to her makeup. Use a brow pencil or brow powder to fill in sparse areas and shape your brows into the desired shape.
Apply eye shadow
Use a matte eyeshadow in a medium brown shade to define your crease, then apply a glossy eyeshadow in a light beige shade to the inner corner of your eyes and under your brow bone. Finish the look with a coat of mascara.
Use a pink blush
To add a pop of color to your cheeks, apply a pink blush to the top of your cheeks. Meghan Markle often uses a cream blush for a natural finish.
Finish with a natural lip color
Meghan Markle usually wears a natural lip color, such as a rosy pink or a neutral beige. Use a lip liner to define your lips, then apply lipstick or gloss in a natural shade to complete the look.
Anti-aging tips for women over 40: tips for shiny skin
What is the best anti-wrinkle cream for women over 40? Choose a product that will hydrate the skin, make it look vibrant and healthy, and yes, smooth out some fine lines.
Vitamin C, retinol or hyaluronic acid? These three are essential when it comes to skin care. Vitamin C is great for fighting sun damage. If you have dark spots from the sun or aging, vitamin C will help. Retinol, on the other hand, can be too harsh for very sensitive skin. Always make sure to moisturize after use and not use it every day. Hyaluronic acid is the big winner for me. It helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and can be adapted to all skin types. It makes it more elastic and gives the impression of a glass skin!
Does collagen work? Studies have shown that daily collagen supplements can help make your bones denser… Oral collagen supplements have been shown to improve hydration and elasticity in the skin of older people. HOWEVER! Skin creams marketed with collagen are a real fraud. The collagen molecules they contain cannot cross the skin barrier and enter the body. So at best you are just moisturizing your skin with a very expensive face cream.
