Like a breath of (beauty) fresh air, Meghan Markle floated down the aisle with a fresh and simple take on wedding makeup. Letting her skin do all the talking, brows were softly filled, lips were a natural nude, and eyes featured only a subtle wing paired with a couple coats of mascara.
Through her understated and refined makeup look, the new Duchess of Sussex allowed her freckles to shine, opting for light coverage that illuminated her skin and let her natural beauty speak for itself.
While we don’t all have a celebrity makeup artist on standby, this look is achievable using the mighty tinted moisturiser, which allows an all-round glow and evenness while letting your natural beauty shine.
So, take a page out of the Meghan’s book and embrace your face – freckles and all.
