How to recreate Meghan’s Royal Wedding look


How to recreate Meghan’s Royal Wedding look

Whether you tuned in to watch the highly anticipated Royal Wedding or not, we’re sure you’ve seen Meghan Markle’s timeless wedding look somewhere.

An understated yet elegant form-fitted gown, natural, glowing makeup, and an effortless low bun that had been topped off with a five-metre long, hand-embroidered Givenchy veil.

Meghan didn’t need over-the-top makeup to look beautiful. Her minimal look showcased her natural beauty flawlessly and put her best features in the spotlight.

After all that excitement, we decided to show you how to create an amazing wedding look, but without the hefty price tags of a Royal Wedding!

Make your eyes the main attraction

Whilst Meghan’s wedding look was very understated, her eyes were the stars of the show.

Pencil eyeliner along the lash-line and upper waterline (tight-line) helps to define the eyes and create the appearance of fuller lashes. Smudge the liner slightly with an eyeliner brush or smudger to diffuse harsh lines and soften the look.

Blend a soft brown eyeshadow into the crease of the eyes with a blending brush to tie this day-time smokey eye look together but keep a light hand when doing so.

Use a volumising and lengthening mascara to create the long, lifted lashes look. If your lashes are naturally quite short, add some lengthening fake eyelashes to your look to create wispiness.

Love your skin

Less is more with a natural wedding look.

Skip the heavy-duty foundations and high-coverage concealers for a simple dusting of powder to give some balance to your complexion and reduce oil build-up.

If you need a little bit of coverage, tinted moisturiser or BB or CC cream is a good option as they will even out discoloration but also give you a radiant look and smooth base for the rest of your makeup.

If you still have some imperfections you’d like to disguise, opt for minimal concealer instead of a full face of foundation and just focus on small blemishes and areas you desperately want to cover up.

Subtlety is key

If you're trying to recreaMeghan kept the blush and highlight to a minimum with just a slight dusting of blush on her cheeks to add some colour to her look. Highlight was concentrated on her cheekbones, along the brow bones, down the bridge of her nose and a little on the tip.

Her look was definitely more glowy than sparkly, so go for a subtle highlighter that isn’t super glittery.

Make sure your brows are clearly defined, but not too strong to overpower the look. A brow powder would be your best option for adding some soft definition.

Finish off these subtle touches with a soft pink lipstick to maintain the natural charm of this look, whilst adding a touch of femininity and colour.
