Meghan Markle has lived most of her adult life in the spotlight. From being a brilliant Hollywood actress to becoming a royal, she has somehow managed to maintain her impeccable appearance.
The stunning former Duchess of Sussex leaves no room for error when it comes to looking her best. No matter the stress or situation, Meghan Markle has a tip or trick to get you through it while looking amazing.
1. Buy Shoes One Size Bigger To Avoid Blisters
Fashion expert Harriet Davey revealed that an old school Hollywood trick to avoid blisters when wearing heels is to buy one size bigger. Meghan often turns to this trick when she wears heels.
“Celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they’re at an event or on the red carpet, and it’s for one reason we can all relate to—to avoid blisters.”said Harriet.
2. Use A Toothbrush To Smooth Fly Aways
When she first became a royal, Meghan’s signature hairdo was her messy bun. However, she later began wearing beautifully sculpted and sleek updos that required her to use another nifty hack to maintain the perfect structure.
“For my flyaways, I spray hairspray on a small boar bristle toothbrush (a regular toothbrush also works great!) to lightly brush them down or smooth the hairline. This is especially good for a sleek bun when I am off-camera.”she revealed to Birchbox during an interview in 2014.
3. Yoga To Kick Jet Lag & Morning Sickness
During the early stages of her pregnancy, the Duchess of Sussex traveled to Australia with her husband Prince Hary. The trip was part of their Oceania tour.
The traveling combined with her pregnancy she experienced some jet lag as well as morning sickness. To combat the two she turned to early-morning yoga as a solution.
4. Antibacterial Gel To Avoid Getting Sick
Whether your a Hollywood star or a royal flying around forms a big part of your year. However, you quickly learn that planes are breeding grounds for germs.
But Meghan has the answer to avoid catching a cold. She once revealed on her old lifestyle blog The Tig, a trick she learned from Leonardo Di Caprio.
“He puts a little [antibacterial gel] on a cotton swab and coats the inside of his nostrils. Not only does it create a barrier for germs, it also lubricates the skin in the nose. That’s important because when the skin cracks, germs can come a running on, so the coating of the [gel] doubly protects you.”explained Meghan in her post.
5. Hide Tired Eyes with Highlighter
Lastly, Meghan has hacked busy late nights and early mornings that leave you looking worse for wear. To prepare for her early morning engagements Meghan turns to a trick she picked up from her time on Suits to avoid looking tired.
“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.”said Meghan Markle to Birchbox.
