Fluttery, separated, long and dark, attaining the perfect lashes is a pursuit of happiness – and if you haven’t found the mascara that helps you achieve yours just yet, Meghan Markle might be able to help.
During a previous interview with HELLO! magazine, Meghan’s friend and former make-up artist Lydia Sellers revealed that Prince Harry’s wife recommended her a surprisingly inexpensive mascara, and it’s one that she’s kept in her collection ever since.
‘Meghan actually introduced me to a drugstore mascara, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara,’ Lydia, who worked with Meghan on TV show Suits from 2015 to 2017, told the title. ‘I keep it stocked in my kit now at all times thanks to her!’
‘This mascara really helps to amplify your lashes and polish off the entire look. It’s great for full volume and lengthening, the formula is super hydrating. I love how it builds, and that the price point is accessible for all budgets.’
Maybelline describes the mascara as a ‘liquid ink formula with a low wax count that creates black lashes that are dark and defined’ – a product which sounds like it could certainly still be behind Meghan’s signature flutter.
And while the magic wand was always affordable, with an RRP of £8.99, for a limited time only, you can get it on Amazon for just £4.50, a saving of 50 per cent. Talk about a bargain!
Lydia added during the interview that Meghan, as we’ve seen at many public appearances (including on her wedding day), favours a classic make-up look that allows her natural beauty to come through.
‘Meghan favours a less-is-more approach to beauty; fresh, dewy skin to show off her natural tone and freckles; thick, lush lashes; a hint of colour on the lips,’ she explained.
Meghan herself has revealed previously that in addition to mascara, she’s a big fan of lash serums to keep her eyes beautifully framed. Speaking to Allure magazine back in her acting days, she exclaimed: ‘I use Revitalash on my eyelashes, and I swear they are as long as they could ever be.’
