Ever since the royal wedding last year – where the Duchess of Sussex’s radiant complexion, gorgeous freckles, and minimal makeup stole the whole freakin’ show – women have felt inspired.
Hell, I want to have invisible pores like Meghan Markle. I want to look that healthy even though I continue to eat chicken nuggets on a weekly basis. I want to trick people that I’ve got nothing on my face when that is literally the furthest thing from the truth. I want my skin to look like hers.
Disclaimer: I absolutely do not drink two litres of water every day. I have resigned myself to the fact that it will never happen. I just want people to... think that I do.
And, well, it's taken me a little over a month, but I'm a teensy bit closer to achieving The Meghan Markle Glow in the amount of time it'd take me to drive to the local McDonald's and pick up a six pack of McNuggets.
Here are the steps that work for me:
1. Illuminating primer
After you have cleansed and moisturised your skin, I recommend applying a glowy primer to your skin (avoiding the dreaded, oily T-zone).
Primers are typically used underneath liquid foundation to make it sing and last all day; but they can also look gorgeous just on their own. The L'Oréal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer is sheer and gorgeous, but also an affordable dupe for the exxy designer brand primers you'll find in a department store.
