When we think about all that the royal lifestyle entails, ballgowns, red carpets, tiaras, and glammed-up makeup all come to mind. The always-lovely duchess Meghan Markle, however, is changing the view we have just ever so slightly. Sure, the Duchess of Sussex can get glam better than the rest of us, but when it comes to her makeup, she has a habit of keeping things simple. Even before she had HRH status, Meghan experimented a little bit with her beauty styles, but overall, she's kept things the same for quite some time. All Meghan Markle needs to feel done-up is a little bit of her signature peachy blush and a simple smoky eye, and she's good to go! If only it were that simple for the rest of us.

Similar to her duchess counterpart Kate Middleton, who doesn't make a huge fuss about her makeup, the Duchess of Sussex tends to let her outfit, and her charm, do all of the talking. If we didn't know any better, we would have sworn that during some royal engagements Meghan wasn't wearing much makeup at all! This royal lady lets her natural skin show through, and now we know why so many people followed her advice from her old blog The Tig religiously. This woman knows what she's talking about when it comes to beauty!

Yes, before she had even met Prince Harry, Meghan already had a reputation for being a beauty guru, and we're glad to see that her style hasn't changed since she became a duchess. We love a royal lady who's still trying to keep it real, and Meghan does that indeed! So, because we can't get enough of Meghan's effortless beauty, here are 20 of her most natural makeup looks.

  • Showing Off the Glow

    That angle that Meghan was giving the cameras at Wimbledon right there was the perfect one to show off that natural glow she was sporting. But honestly, when is she not sporting that enviable glow of hers?

    When fighting the harsh winds and chilly weather, the last thing someone wants to worry about is their makeup. Meghan seemed to know what was ahead of her, because she kept her skin and eyes very clear!

    Honestly, the only addition Meghan needs to her face is that gorgeous smile of hers. We love how the duchess doesn't distract from her natural beauty with unnecessary makeup or heavy lipstick. Less is more, right?

  • Just Peachy

    We love that Meghan tends to take more risks with her fashion than she does with her makeup. Some people call it boring that the duchess doesn't play around with her done-up look, but we'd much rather see her natural glow coming through!

  • Not All Highlighter

    I mean ... there's only so much that highlighter can really do to brighten up anyone's face. Meghan's beautiful glow is either all natural or all skin care! We're sure she has a few beauty tricks up her sleeve to achieve this kind of skin.

  • Letting Her Clothes Speak

    This was another one of those times where Meghan really let her outfit do all the work for her. With a vintage-inspired dress and an elegant pillbox hat, she really didn't need to go overboard with her makeup look.

  • A Little Smoky Eye

    Whenever Meghan does do more with her eye makeup, she always balances it with a simple skin look. If there's one thing this duchess knows what not to do, it's to not overdo it!

  • Shades of Pink

    The pink shade of Meghan's trench coat dress was absolutely the perfect match for the naturally peachy glow of her skin. We don't know if she just uses the same blush every day, or if she actually wakes up like that!

  • A Full Face Glow

    We don't know where Meghan was putting that highlighter or blush, but her entire face had a glow during this royal engagement! And if that's not makeup causing that shine, then the duchess was blessed with the best pregnancy glow ever.

  • Up Close & Personal

    Nope -- Meghan's makeup is not just an optical illusion! Even pictures that get very up close and personal with the duchess show that she's really keeping it simple when it comes to her makeup looks. Less makeup, more Meghan!

  • Giving the Admirers What They Want

    Just look at how Meghan was subtly posing for the many cameras that were on her this day. Honestly, who ever said it was such a bad thing to be beautiful and know it? This duchess is so naturally beautiful that it's hard not to show it off!

  • Wave Heavy Makeup Goodbye

    We would kill for a Meghan Markle makeup tutorial (from the duchess herself), because there's no way that she uses a whole arsenal of products. This royal lady definitely just lets her natural skin do most of the work.

  • The 'No Makeup' Makeup Look

    The "no makeup" look is all the rage in the world of beauty right now, and it looks like even Meghan isn't immune to its charms. Someone could easily have told us that the duchess was wearing little to no makeup here, and we'd believe them!

  • Tackling Yellow

    Only a few people in this world that could wear such a bright shade of yellow and not look completely washed out. Meghan somehow matched the glow of her dress with the glow of her face for a beautiful, cohesive look.

  • Christmas Simplicity

    The holidays can be a stressful time for people, especially when there's a new marriage involved and a baby on the way. For Christmas 2018, Meghan let her natural skin shine through and paired it with a beautifully simple smoky eye makeup look.

  • Easy to Copy

    Luckily for us, because Meghan doesn't go too crazy when it comes to her makeup looks, her signature styles are pretty easy for us to copy. Next time we want to channel the duchess, we'll just pop on some peachy blush, a nude lip, and do a simple smoky eye ... and call it a day!

  • Letting Blush Do the Job

    Meghan doesn't really make a fuss about her eye makeup or her foundation look. This duchess lets her bright pink blush do all the work for her! If you ask us, it's much better to look naturally glowing than perfectly done-up.

  • Lit From Within

    Whatever highlights or glow serums Meghan uses are seriously doing the trick. We know that the duchess keeps the product she uses to a minimum, so this truly is a "lit from within" makeup look in the most literal sense. 

  • Wimbledon Glow

    There's nothing like a good tennis match to make a royal duchess glow like there's no tomorrow. We just love how Meghan dresses up her outfits for royal outings, but keeps her makeup as simple as she possibly can. That's what we call natural beauty!
