In her first public appearance since her New York City trip last month, Meghan Markle made a rare appearance overnight. Having spent a few weeks out of the public eye, the Duchess of Sussex remerged in a brand-new video to read her children’s book The Bench for Brightly Storytime. While the LA sunshine contributed to her glow, Express.co.uk spoke to a beauty and skincare expert about the possible products Meghan might use in order to achieve her flawless complexion.
Ashley Wady, expert at Bossface Cosmeceuticals explained: “Meghan has a very healthy and radiant glow to her skin, it’s likely that her products are medi-grade cosmeceuticals which contain a lot of active ingredients.
“When I talk about active ingredients I mean things like high strength vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, AHAs, Growth Factors and Vitamin A (Retinols.)
“These sort of ingredients are great for brightening the skin, keeping it hydrated and plump while reducing signs of lines and wrinkles, keeping her complexion flawless and smooth.
“In my opinion, products you can buy in a skin clinic (or online but formulated by skin specialists) are always going to work better and faster than high street products,” she continued.
“Plus the active ingredients will be higher and more potent (generally why they are recommended by professionals).
“That’s not to say high street products won’t do something, it will more than likely just take that bit longer as the active ingredients won’t be as active.
“To achieve it on a budget, look for vitamin C’s with a minimum of eight percent, hyaluronic acids that contain sodium hyaluronate and AHAs such as glycolic and lactic acid.”
What products does Meghan use?
Kate Somerville Quench is what Meghan has named many times as her number-one moisturiser.
“I’ve been going to Kate’s clinic in L.A. for facials for years, and now that I live in Toronto for work, I still use the products to maintain that glow,” she told BeautyBanter in a previous interview.
The Quench Hydrating Face Serum costs £68 at Look Fantastic and supposedly supports your skin’s suppleness and youthful radiance using its powerful blend of retinol and lipids.
And when the Duchess spoke to Allure, she revealed more of her go-to products.
Meghan praised The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder by Tatcha saying that it “foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation”.
The gentle formulation that employs the help of Japanese rice bran to rid dead skin cells and rough patches for a smoother, softer surface can be purchased for £67.45 from Cosmetics Now.
Meghan also shared her secret for naturally long lashes: “I also use Revitalash on my eyelashes, and I swear they are as long as they could ever be.”
The Advanced Eyelash Conditioner is priced at £89 and can be bought direct from Revitalash Cosmetics.
As for makeup, Meghan’s former Suits makeup artist Min Min Ma, revealed during an appearance on The Today Show in 2016 that Meghan wore a soothing serum under coverage.

The product used was Aromessence Rose D’Orient Soothing Serum and it is made with pure natural ingredients.
Priced at £39, it can be bought on Look Fantastic.
Another makeup product Meghan swears by for long days is Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Concealer.
The light-infused concealer pen, which brightens overall complexion and hides imperfection with buildable coverage is great “if you’ve worked a 17-hour day and have nothing else on, you will still look relatively alive,” Meghan commented to Allure.
Currently on offer for £22.95, the product can be bought from Boots.
And when Meghan feels the need to brighten up any dark eye circles she may have, her go-to is Talika’s Eye Therapy Patches.
With the ability to reduce puffiness, Meghan’s longtime makeup artist Lydia Sellers recommended them “because they actually work” as log as you “leave them on for the full 10 minutes”.
As for what product Meghan uses for a subtle highlight on her cheek bones, Lydia revealed one of the Duchess’ “favourite” is Living Luminizer by rms beauty.
She told Byrdie it was chosen for its “subtlety” and how “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.”
Feelunique.com sells the eye patches for £33.52 and the highlighter for £36.
