Meghan Markle's fave highlighter is usually more associated with, eh, nappy rash

Bear with us.

WE’VE FINALLY BEEN given an insight into Meghan Markle’s beauty routine (meaning we’re also one step closer to marrying into huge wealth, right?)

Meghan’s makeup artist Daniel Martin is letting the world in on the secret to the Duchess Of Sussex’ majorly glossy skin – and it costs under €12.

So, what magnificent glitter is he dumping on to Meghan’s face? Eh, none actually, opting to slather on a body lotion more commonly associated with nappy rash and blisters instead.

The Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is sold as a remedy for “very dry or even cracked skin”. Daniel, however, likes to use it as part of Meghan’s skincare routine to give her her signature dewy look. 


“A lot of my highlighting is done with skin-care,” he told E! News.

Before highlighters, you would do highlighting with Aquaphor. Aquaphor will give you that same texture, especially in a photo [when applied] on the high points of the face.”

The ointment is fragrance free and made with 41% Petrolatum, Panthenol and Glycerin to protect and heal dry skin. Glycerin draws moisture on to your skin, giving it that nice, supple glow.

Apply it to the high points of the face (NOT all over, unless you want to resemble a swamp monster from Scooby Doo) and you’ll be good to go. Daniel reckons it works for all skin types, but with most products, it’s going to be a case of trial and error for some.

It’s currently sold out on Boots’ website, but check in store to see if Meghan’s managed to swipe them all.
