Meghan Markle's former makeup artist has revealed the one beauty rule the future royal always insists on -- and she has a prediction for her wedding hairstyle

GettyMeghan Markle seems pretty down-to-earth.
  • People praise Meghan Markle for her apparent low-key attitude.
  • Her former hairstylist and makeup artist of two years said Markle has one rule when it comes to her beauty regime.
  • She doesn’t like too much foundation and likes her freckles to “peek” through.
  • Her former stylist also revealed the products she used on the actress and predicted her wedding hair based on her style.

The world has gone mad for Meghan Markle in the countdown to her wedding to Prince Harry this May, and her apparent sweet nature and low-key attitude has earned her countless fans both sides of the pond.

She’s already proven she’s willing to defy royal protocol in more ways than one, whether it’s hugging a member of the public or something as simple as not wearing tights (rebel!).

And now her former hairstylist and makeup artist, Lydia F. Sellers, has revealed details about her beauty regime to Refinery29 – and it suggests she’s just as low-maintenance in this department.

“Every time I’d do her makeup, she’d say, ‘Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don’t want a ton of foundation,'” Sellers said. “It was more about the amount of product that went on her skin and keeping it really fresh and dewy, rather than caking it on.”

She added that she’d use Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a Beautyblender “because it’s really easy to sheer out.”

Markle has previously said that she dislikes it when her freckles are altered in photos.

“To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot,” she told Allure.

And yet, in December of last year Elle France was accused of having removed them from Markle’s face on the magazine’s December cover:

According to Sellers, Markle’s look has barely changed since news broke that she was to become a royal.

“Even now, her look has stayed the same. She’ll throw her hair back in a low bun and it actually looks like she’s done it herself, and it’s beautiful and chic because she’s so confident. That’s the great thing about Meghan – she’s so confident with herself and her look, and she sticks with that.”

It’s impossible for anyone to know for sure how the “Suits” star’s style will play out on her big day, but Sellers, who worked with Markle for two years, had one prediction for what she might go for with her wedding hair.

As it’s going to be a very royal affair, Seller suggested Markle could opt for something elegant, such as a chignon. “You never know, but that would be my guess,” she said.

However, Markle typically likes to wear her hair down, she explained. “That’s the look she gravitates toward.

“It could be straight or wavy or anything else, but she likes it down. So if it wasn’t a royal wedding, I think that’s what she would do.”
