Rumours have been circulating this week that the Duchess of Sussex has a beauty brand in the works. The biggest giveaway? Over the past year, on a number of occasions both Harry and Meghan have been spotted visiting Bill Guthy's ranch in Carpenteria, Santa Barbara over the past year. Did we lose you at Bill? Fair enough. Bill Guthy is the co-founder of Guthy-Renker, a prominent California-based marketing company that is behind some of the best-known celebrity-founded beauty brands in the industry. There's Cindy Crawford's skincare line Meaningful Beauty - her 50% stake in which makes her one of America's 100 wealthiest self-made women - and Jennifer Lopez' eponymous new skincare line JLo Beauty.

What To Expect From Meghan Markle's Beauty Brand

The Duchess of Sussex has long been vocal about her interest in beauty. You don't make it through eight seasons of a hit TV show like Suits without spending hours and even days in the make-up chair. It was on set that she built a relationship with her now very good friend and go-to make-up artist Daniel Martin, and on her now deleted blog 'The Tig' Meghan plugged her make-up favourites and skincare essentials. Then there's the wellness element. While Meghan may not be a Goop-level health obsessive, she does, thanks to her instructor mother, have a passion for yoga. It stands to reason then, that this is something the Duchess is well placed for. So what could we expect?

Meghan Markle

A royal of the woke variety, she'd undoubtedly tick all the sustainability, vegan, cruelty-free, and planet-friendly boxes. Presumably she wouldn't compromise on quality either. Meghan once told Allure she loved Tatcha's The Rice Polish Classic, £139, saying 'it just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation,' and Jan Marini serums, the prices for which start at £87. She went on to say that her 'five minute face' involves YSL Beauty Touche Éclat, £27, MAC Cosmetics' Eyeliner in Teddy, £15 and NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm, £25. In summary, a conscious, results-driven brand that aligned to a social cause? Bingo.

bareMinerals Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner, £15 We love this super-soft twist-up pencil liner. It's great for creating a bold, smoky line, and smudging with the spongy tool at the other end of the pencil. It lasts all day, too.

The Everyday Lashes

We're always head over heels for Meghan Markle's lashes. That curl, the depth of colour, the length the thickness. How does she lock down her lash look? She once recommended an £8.99 mascara to her make-up artist at the time Lydia Sellers. That mascara was Maybelline's Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara. Duly noted!

The Russet Look

Meghan arrived at Canada House on the 7th January 2020 with Harry, sporting this sumptuous makeup look.What: Meghan matched her trademark liner and lashes with a shimmering shade of taupe eyeshadow that was applied to her lower lash line as well as her lids. A warm bronze powder was swept across the top and outer sides of each cheekbone, whilst a little subtle highlighter rested on the apples of her cheeks. The finishing touch?

The Glossed-Up Lips

At the Endeavour Fund Awards on the evening of Thursday 5th March 2020 Meghan made her first appearance in a good long while, and her make-up proved a crowd-pleaser.What: Meghan opted for a russet shade of blusher, and used the same tones on her eyes and deep into her sockets, along with Kate Moss levels of kohl to dramatically define her eyes. On her lips, she's chosen to up the gloss factor, with a sheer berry shade of colour. As she chose the evening to debut a new Victoria Beckham dress, we think it's only fitting to recommend the Victoria Beckham Beauty Bitten Lip Tint, £30, as the copycat option. Who knows, maybe it's even the very same one that Meghan's wearing.
