Meghan Markle’s concealer trick is not only speedy but it makes you look like you’ve had eight hours of blissful sleep—even if you’re barely awake!
Back in the height of Meghan Markle’s Suits days, the Duchess of Sussex spoke to Birchbox about her beauty habits. In the interview, she revealed some of her favorite products to use when filming the hit TV show, as well as the tricks she uses to look more awake.
That’s when we learned not only about her go-to concealer—YSL’s Touche Éclat—but her knack for using the light-reflecting pen to banish dark circles, even better it’s reduced right now in the Boots Black Friday deals.
The Duchess mentioned the specific YSL product and explained that she uses this highlighter pen as a concealer on her under-eyes.
“To open up your eyes, apply a highlighter like Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat in the inner corner—this trick is especially good when we are filming at 3 a.m. and I need to look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed,” Meghan said.
Meghan also name-checked the best-selling Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler for opening up the eyes. “Even if you don’t have a stitch of makeup on, you suddenly look a bit more alive.”
To use an eyelash curler correctly, the trick is to place the curler approximately a quarter of the way down the lash, then press down and release. Keep doing this until you reach the root of your lashes. This helps to create a long-lasting curl rather than simply a kink in the lash.
