The *ACTUAL* Makeup Products Used On Meghan Markle For The Royal Wedding

Wasn't it an unbelievable day!? The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was the perfect fairy tale, uplifting event the entire world needed to see. The newly titled Dutchess of Sussex looked like a total princess in her Givenchy gown. Meghan stayed true to herself and opted for her signature glowing, natural skin, smokey eye and bold brows. She loves to have her freckles visible and not concealed by heavy foundation.

If you read my blog post last week about Meghan's Beauty Essentials there was a lot of speculation as to who the makeup artist was going to be on the day. It was also rumored that she would do her own makeup or that she had enlisted the assistance of her closest friends to undertake the task. The makeup artist selected for the role was Meghan's friend New York based Daniel Martin. He is a leading makeup artist who shoots for Vogue, ensures A-listers are red carpet ready and is also a Dior Brand Ambassador.

So which makeup products did Daniel Martin use to create this barely there makeup master piece? Come this way to find out!

Eyeshadow - Dior Backstage Eye Palette in Warm Neutrals 001 - £38

Discover the ultra-pigmented, multi-finish eye palette by DIOR, including an eye primer, an eye shadow, a highlighter and a liner.

Foundation - Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation - £29

The Dior face and body foundation will be available in 40 shades with a natural finish that's both waterproof and sweat-resistant. It is the DIOR make up artists' secret weapon to create an instantly flawless complexion with ultra-buildable coverage, from a natural nude glow to high-coverage effect. At 50ml for £29 it's also a high end bargain!

Contour - Dior Backstage Contour Palette - £34

Discover the sculpting and highlighting shades within the buildable face contour palette.

Lips - Dior Lip Glow in Coral Glow - £23.40

This clever balm enhances the lips and brings out their natural colour. The first universal balm by Dior reacts to the unique chemistry of each persons lips to give them a natural flush of custom pink that suits their skin tone. Luckily for us it's already available in the UK.

Mascara - Diorshow Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara - £23.40

A classic favourite of Meghans this mascara is enriched with a unique lifting formula, Diorshow Iconic sculpts, stretches and curves the lashes with extreme hold and high definition.

Eyeliner - Diorshow On Stage Liner in Matte Black - £23.40

Diorshow Stage Liner is a felt-pen is 24 hour and water proof wear, perfect for a bride or any day.

I predict that the upcoming Dior Backstage products will be hot property when they launch here in the summer. I also feel like Dior as a brand is about to become top of our wish lists again thanks to the Royal Wedding! For me, it's been out shone by 'social media' brands lately.

I think anyone who loves a sheer foundation should put the Dior Face & Body high on their wish list to try. Sheer foundations are always a great idea in the summer months if they are not usually your go-to.

I am also very intrigued to give the Diorshow Iconic mascara a go... shall I do a review? As this is one of Meghan's tried and true favourites since her time on Suits.

Are you going to be trying any of these Dior makeup products?
