Meghan Markle’s Favorite Beauty Products Are At Bellacara

I love a fairy tale and the American actress marrying into royalty is reminiscent of a bygone era and Grace Kelly. Now we have Meghan Markle and it’s no less fascinating watching her transition from actress to duchess. Maybe that’s why we can’t seem to get enough of all things Meghan. When she says she loves a beauty product, I can’t help but wonder what it is. Below are some of her regularly mentioned favorites.


Revitalash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner

When discussing her eyelashes, Meghan told Allure magazine that she “swear(s) they are as long as they could ever be” using this serum. We at Bellacara agree, as every single one of us uses it religiously.




Fresh Sugar Lip Balm in Candy and Dream

According to Markle, “I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm, but this is the very best.”

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer

The duchess often prefers less than full coverage foundation. When she wants something lighter, she reaches for this because “It’s not sparkly, it’s true to it’s name…illuminating.”


Beauty Blender Sponge

Meghan only applies base makeup on areas where it’s needed and “spread(s) it with a beautyblender.” “I never want to cover my freckles, so we just do a ‘wash’ of foundation in certain sections instead of over the entire face.”


RMS Living Luminizer

Markle and her make-up artist, Lydia Sellers, love this highlighter because “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.”


  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.
