Any woman who has experienced a tough early pregnancy will tell you what the Duchess of Sussex is doing right now appears to be an act of sorcery.
Meghan is probably around four months pregnant. Somehow through the sickness, bloating and exhaustion she has managed to whack on a smile and look constantly flawless.
What’s the secret to her pregnancy glow? I need to know absolutely everything about that highlighter.
We mined every interview Meghan and her makeup artists have ever done about her beauty routine. Here are 10 of her favourite beauty products she’s raved about.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara

“Meghan actually introduced me to a drugstore mascara, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara,” Meghan’s former makeup artist Lydia Sellers toldHello! magazine.
“I keep it stocked in my kit now at all times thanks to her. This mascara really helps to amplify your lashes and polish off the entire look. It’s great for full volume and lengthening, the formula is super hydrating. I love how it builds, and that the price point is accessible for all budgets.”
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Sellers said she has used the cult Armani foundation on Meghan in the past.
“I use the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 3.5 with a drop or two of 5.5 for a healthy complexion. Very few faces require only one shade, so I like to mix more than one colour to match the complexity and depth of the skin,” Sellers told Byrdie.
RMS Living Luminizer

Sellers also uses this popular highlighter from natural beauty brand RMS.
“I also love to use the RMS Living Luminizer in Magic for a glowing, slightly wet look on the high points of the cheekbones and a few other places we want to glow. This highlighter is a favourite when working with Meghan because of its subtlety. It doesn’t go on looking like a disco ball, but it has just enough pop to make her skin glow in a natural, dewy way. I like to layer it on a few times to get the desired amount of radiance,” Sellers told Byrdie.
MAC Teddy Eyeliner

In a 2014 interview with Allure, Meghan confessed her love for this eyeliner.
“If I’m going to amp it up for night, then I use MAC Teddy eyeliner, which is a really beautiful brown that has some gold in it. A makeup artist I work with often, Kayleen McAdams, turned me on to it. It’s what she uses on Sofia Vergara, and who wouldn’t want those gorgeous brown almond eyes?” she said.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Concealer

When asked how starring in Suits and being in professional TV makeup all day had affected her beauty routine, Meghan said of her character Rachel Zane: “She’s so polished. I am so much more low-key in real life. And it’s in HD, so the steps that go into looking good on a show are very different than in real life. I don’t wear foundation in real life. 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. That is my favourite kind of look.”
She’s also said of the famous YSL concealer pen: ‘If you’ve worked a 17-hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive. Relatively.”
NARS Orgasm Blush

This blush is a cult favourite among beauty junkies and Meghan is also a fan.
“I love Nars blush in Orgasm. I use it on and off camera because it gives you a nice glow from within,” she told Byrdie.
Diorshow Iconic Mascara

As well as raving about the Maybelline mascara, Meghan has previously said, “My favourite mascara is Diorshow Iconic.”
Make-up For Ever HD Powder

Anyone who is going to be photographed all the time needs a powder to prevent them from looking shiny on camera.
“I love the Make Up For Ever HD Powder. It lets your skin look shiny and fresh, but not greasy-shiny,” Meghan told Byrdie.
Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder

This water-activated powder turns into a cream in the shower that is great for getting rid of dead skin cells.
“I really love the Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder,” Meghan told Byrdie. “It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation.”
Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion

Meghan has previously said she is obsessed with this stuff.
“I use this religiously,” she told Beauty Banter. “It’s honestly my favourite lotion on the market, it’s so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it.”
