Wherever Meghan Markle lives in the world, we’re pretty confident the royal’s ability to spark a trend will continue.

The 38-year-old duchess is a real style icon and has caused numerous products to sell out over the past few years.

We know she’s a huge fan of sustainable labels, Canadian brands and French fashion house Givenchy (who designed her 2018 wedding dress). But, what of her go-to beauty brands?

The mum-of-one’s skin is always glowing and it turns out she has Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat concealer to thank.

In an interview with Allure in 2014, the then-actress revealed she has a “very simple” make-up routine, and her absolute go-to at the time was the designer brand’s top-rated beauty product.

Meghan - who has nine-month-old son Archie with husband Prince Harry - prefers the lightweight formula over foundation.

The Duchess of Sussex said: “I am so much more low-key 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.”

Touche Éclat is a popular go-to as it has multi purposes.

Some customers use the product as a concealer to cover dark circles and blemishes, while others will use a different shade as a highlighter or to contour to accentuate their features.

The product comes in a variety of shades to suit all skin tones, and it is super affordable.

Meghan’s must-have concealer pen usually retails for £27, while special edition designs retail for £31.

However, LookFantastic are selling the exact item for a fraction of the price, at £17.80.

For those who are looking for slightly more coverage will turn to YSL’s top-rated Le Teint Foundation, which will set you back £36.

Meghan used to share her beauty and lifestyle tips on her now closed blog The Tig.

However, since becoming a member of the royal family, she has remained tight lipped about the skincare essentials she uses.
