What’s In Meghan Markle’s Bag?

AS if wedding planning wasn’t stressful enough without the eyes of the entire world on you, but Meghan Markel made it look so simple. She did it all with glowing skin and shiny hair, all the while showing off her pearly whites. If you’re anything like us, you’re still looking back at the Royal Wedding (sigh) and speculating about the finer details of the nuptials that we didn’t get a chance to see. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to dip into Meghan’s regal bag and present to you the items the newlywed can’t live without.

Lash Boost

EYELASH renewal serum that accelerates the growth of healthy, natural lashes is part of Meghan’s stash and she swears her eyelashes ‘are as long as they could ever be!’

Eyelash Enhancing Serum: R999, Rapidlash

T Is For Tea Tree Oil

‘THE one thing that I cannot live without is a small container of tea tree oil. It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all.’

Tea Tree Oil (10ml): R100, The Body Shop

Wipe It Off

BECAUSE they rid the skin of all impurities, cleansing cloths guarantee glowy skin which stays radiant at all times. Meghan admits to keeping a bunch in her bedside table and in her car.

Keep It Clean

GERMS can run rampant, but Meghan is naturally, a step ahead of the game: ‘I’m no germophobe, but when I get on a plane I always use a quick travel sanitizer.’

Hand Sanitiser: R25.95, Dettol

Sheer Choice

SHE does very light make-up and avoids mattifying face powder to ensure her freckles remain visible and her skin glowy. ‘I wear foundation when I’m shooting. The rest of the time, I use a foundation primer after hydrating my skin with nothing on top. The result is a dewy glow, which doesn’t actually have a glimmer to it, but really brightens up the skin.”

Perfecting Primer: R399, Elizabeth Arden

Mane Attraction

HER two-step tip for instant volume is to flick hair forward, mist with texturizing spray and then flip back. Perfectly mussed-up and full of body.

Hair Expertise Texturising Mineral Salt Spray: R125.99, L’Oreal Professional
