The subtle detail you probably missed from Meghan Markle’s make-up look

We still can’t get over how drop dead gorgeous Meghan looked for her final official engagement as a senior royal. Arm in arm with husband Prince Harry and alongside her in-laws the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen, Meghan attended the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey in that emerald green outfit that we just can’t get out of our heads.

But while all eyes were on Meghan’s showstopping bespoke Emilia Wickstead dress and cape, which she teamed with a matching fascinator from William Chambers, tan Aquazzura pumps and a Gabriella Hearst handbag, there was a small make-up detail that we all missed.

It appears the showstopping aesthetic was continued throughout her make-up look, too, but it was only visible when she blinked. Yes, we’re talking about Meghan’s eyeshadow and the fact that she opted for a bold colour on her lids.

Now, you’d be forgiven for assuming she went for a bright swipe of green across her lids to coordinate with the rest of her stunning outfit. However, the hue Meghan actually went for was a bright pop of blue, and a shimmery one at that.

Beautiful. While it may seem a surprising choice of shade, this news comes just as Charlotte Tilbury launches a new range of eyeshadow palettes with recommended shades according to your eye colour.

Clearly Meghan is in the know when it comes to beauty, as interestingly, Charlotte Tilbury suggest matching blue shades with brown eyes, which is exactly what Meghan did.

Meghan amped up the drama even more by applying a set of false eyelashes for added oomph, and kept the rest of her make-up look natural with nude lips, defined brows and a glowing complexion.

If you want to copy Meghan’s stunning finish, look no further than Charlotte Tilbury’s Luxury Palette in Super Blue – while she’s unlikely to reveal the brand she was actually wearing, it’s a great way to get the look and make your brown eyes pop too.
