If you were as thrilled as we were about the #RoyalWedding, you probably woke up at an insanely miserable hour to see the union of the year. Of course, we all know Meghan looked stunning in her Givenchy wedding gown, and maybe also a little surprised by the simplicity of her makeup. Yet at the same time, it enhanced her natural beauty so effortlessly—especially those amazing freckles—we were in love with all of it!

Want to recreate that effortlessness? Here are our picks on how to achieve the Duchess of Sussex's fairytale wedding look.

A Flawless Finish

If you're going for the lightweight, sheer, freckle-friendly coverage the Duchess flaunted, Chantecaille Future Skin Oil-Free Foundation is an ultra-lightweight, oil-free foundation that offers buildable coverage with its unique formula, allowing you to customize your coverage to your needs. Containing light-reflecting pigments and aloe leaf, the foundation reduces the appearance of imperfections while also giving incredible, long-lasting moisture to the skin!

Natural Eyeshadow

Meghan's eye makeup differed greatly from that of her new sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. Instead of a sultry smoky eye, the American actress kept to a flattering natural, contoured eye look.

Want the same bronze and taupe wonder? NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette in warm neutrals will give you highly pigmented shadows at an easy price. With soft, buildable and blendable shades, this palette is truly meant for the perfect wedding day look!

Luscious Lashes

We all want the thickest and fullest lashes on our wedding day, but what's great about Meghan's lashes is her look is so natural, the falsies look like her own lashes! Even the new Duchess of Sussex wouldn't up the drama on her big day. This makes her choice a great wear for every day. Ardell Individual Lashes will give you the fullness and look of thickness that you want without looking fake!

Nude Lip Nuptials

Meghan's look wouldn't have looked so stunningly effortless if she hadn't kept to a natural lip. With the subtlest tint of pink, this American-actress-turned-royal enhanced her lips natural fullness! L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipstick in Nude Gold gives your lips a nourishing satin finish while providing them with a dose of moisture for a long-lasting, all-day wear that doesn't dry out your pout!

Lock it All in Place

You can't dash off anywhere, but especially not a royal wedding without setting your makeup to ensure it doesn't move! Lock your look in place with Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist with accents of rose, sage and orange blossom that leave you feeling refreshed and hydrated. With a divinely fine mist, a spritz or two of this will have you ready to take on whatever your day will hold.

A Manicure for the New Madam

Royal weddings are planned to a 'T' and even the new Duchess' manicure doesn't go unnoticed. Of course, the Queen of England herself oversaw that Meghan's manicure was polished and primped for the big day. Freshen up your nails with Nailberry L'Oxygene Nail Lacquer in Candy Floss for a polished and subtle glow to those digits.

We all wish for that fairytale ending ourselves, and even if we don't marry the most royal bachelor in all the land, we can look the part! Discover more royal favorites on our lookfantastic website today!
