Kensington Palace has not yet officially announced the name of the stylist or the makeup artist of the prince's bride on the wedding day. It is not a fact that this will be done at all: Kate Middleton continues to insist that she did the makeup on her lucky day herself (and continues to cope with it on her own ─ “I'm not beautiful ─ it's all makeup!”), So why her an example not to be followed by Meghan Markle, who, thanks to the set, knows a lot more about skin preparation and shading eyeshadow / blush? For several months of her life in London (and years in Canada), the actress, by chance or not, revealed to journalists many of her beauty secrets, on the basis of which we conclude today how a girl prepares for the second legally, but the first in her life, marriage …
Preparation: nothing more
Today Megan has a very restrained and tactful attitude towards beauty. She doesn’t spend less time than before making every exit she makes the British proud, and the rest of the world envy (read ─ “How does she do it: why 36-year-old Meghan Markle looks younger than 35-year-old Kate Middleton”). At the same time, the prince's bride looks and carries herself "into the world" completely differently than a couple of years ago - in an amicable way, expensive and rich. The secrets are simple: Megan admits that until now, and after moving to the royal palace, she uses some products "from a past life."
Among them is a firming lotion from, attention, a very budgetary brand Nivea. “I'm ready to pray for him,” says Markle. ─ It is amazing: it moisturizes and generally makes the skin magical, but it costs a penny. I buy it every time I have the opportunity. " It is imperceptible that Megan has some problems with excess weight and skin tone (with daily sports - yoga and jogging), but nevertheless, the lotion promises to tighten and strengthen the epidermis in 2 weeks (even if it is already tightened and strong), which means it will definitely be on the bride's beauty menu.
The next item is the revitalizing lip balm Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment from the American brand Fresh. Megan admits that she tried many options for moisturizing the skin of the lips, but this one turned out to be "the same".
Markle has repeatedly admitted that in ordinary life, i.e. outside the filming process, does not wear tone. Normal life ended, but the paparazzi and cameras stayed with it. The maximum that Megan allowed herself, and which will be necessary for her now, is a base with a radiance effect from LaurMercier and a Touche Eclat concealer brush from YSL (“Even if you worked 17 hours a day, he will make it so that no one does not recognize ").
Face: light anti-age
Megan began preparations for the wedding well in advance ─ with a visit to the beautician. The girl's skin, at least, experienced serious stress after the climate change, and even though it has more or less adapted to the conditions of Foggy Albion, it needs support. Obviously, Markle will do a course of anti-aging treatments before the wedding.
It was reported that as soon as she was in London, she visited Nicola Joss, a popular celebrity master of lymphatic drainage massage. Joss successfully practices intraoral facial massage: the magical movements of the hands literally from the inside - with gloves, of course - the oral cavity has a magical tightening effect. Joss also says that Megan makes masks every day (sorry, does not specify which ones).
For those who are ready to neglect cleansing, Megan advises keeping a pack of Kao Biore cleansing wipes on the bedside table: "They help out great when the very thought of getting out of bed and doing something with yourself is unbearable."
In an interview, Harry's bride admitted that while in hot sunny Los Angeles, she uses a moisturizer from the star cosmetologist Kate Somerville (decide to order from eBay, focus on the average price of $ 60-70). While living in Toronto, Meghan continued to use the brand's products to maintain the "glow they give to the skin." Probably, she will not refuse them and gloomy England.
Skin: shimmer ─ in moderation
Makeup artists say that Megan will bet on clean, radiant skin in a wedding look. With her face, everything is almost perfect now (even more than that of Kate Middleton 7 years ago ─ on the day of her marriage to Prince William), so special efforts will not be required. Have you noticed that Megan is a big fan of shiny, glossy, slightly "damp" skin? Make-up artists agree that this effect is very good for her, but they still advise using a little matting agent on day X so as not to shine in the lens of TV cameras in the literal sense of the word.
For this purpose, in their opinion, a tonal foundation "from Rihanna" (namely Fenty Beauty) ─ Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation 100 is suitable. 40 shades (there will be plenty to choose from, despite the fact that Megan's tone is not easy - saturated, but with freckles, which the future duchess cherishes, cherishes and reluctantly paints over) and a velvet finish - ideal for both a photo and for life. It has already been emphasized more than once that Markle is especially sympathetic to the Nars blush in the Orgasm shade, and will probably try to find a place for them in a wedding cosmetic bag.
Eye makeup: soft eyeliner
With the classic solemn makeup - arrows and bright lipstick - Meghan Markle said goodbye for a long time, if not forever. And the point here is not inappropriateness at the wedding, because Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011 eyeliner intensely and brightly (perhaps brighter than she should have). Megan, it seems, has finally changed the course to total correctness, and in the makeup this is manifested by the lack of accents.
The make-up of the future Duchess is natural, even and Californian-like peaceful (although Megan uses the same range of shadows as Kate Middleton). Softly shaded black eyeliner, light chocolate-colored shadows and native eyelashes highlighted with mascara ─ we hope that on May 19 all this will remain in a not too exaggerated version, although, as the make-ups themselves admit, Megan's color type allows her to wear quite a lot of cosmetics. without looking "over the top".
The prince's bride's must-have eye makeup products include the Stylo Yeux Waterproof eyeliner from Chanel (it's clear with water resistance - you won't cry, so rain will help) and “something shimmering” for brightness and shine in the corners of the eyes.
In her acting years, Megan experimented with eyebrows, but took control of the situation in time. Insiders of the royal court say that the matter was not without a visit to the Lash Queen salon, already here in London, and the prince's bride's eyebrows are in order at the moment. As a guideline for herself, Markle chose "Audrey's eyebrows" - straight, without a pronounced head, with well-defined but naturally defined tips. In general, elegant English style, if we transfer the definition to a beauty image.
There are many historical photos of Megan with red lipstick, but her favorite shade is “nude”, glossy and natural pigment. There is reason to believe that this is Very Victori─ flawless "nude" from Charlotte Tilbury (Victoria Beckham's favorite shade - do I need to clarify why?).
British makeup artists unanimously say that they would like to see Markle at the wedding with bright lipstick, and, most likely, it will even be possible - not in St. George's Chapel, of course, but at the continuation of the banquet in the royal palace. In the end, this will become a great refrain to the images of old Hollywood, namely, to Grace Kelly and her red lipstick (do not forget that it was Grace who became the first American actress to blaze the official path to royalty). In case the predictions come true, we rely on MAC's Perfect Red Ruby Woo - perfect for a party with a claimed 12-hour longevity.
