For her wedding to Prince Harry in May, it is likely that Meghan will choose to wear her usual fresh-faced, understated make-up look.

If so, she will wear one of the best foundations on the market - Armani Luminous Silk - a firm favourite of beauty experts and glowing skin lovers everywhere.

Meghan Markle's former make-up and hairstylist, Lydia F. Sellers, who worked with the actress for two years before she moved to the UK, revealed to Refinery29 that Meghan's preference has always been for a natural-looking foundation.

"Every time I'd do her make-up, she'd say, 'Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don't want a ton of foundation,'

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. So I'd use the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a Beauty Blender because it's really easy to sheer out."

According to the Armani website, the foundation is "inspired by the finest fabrics", continuing, it says "this award-winning lightweight foundation was designed to help correct and unify the complexion for instantly glowing skin".

Lydia also disclosed that she felt Meghan has "done such a good job of maintaining her sense of self amongst the spotlight."

"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."

As to what hairstyle Meghan will choose, Lydia has a hunch, "We styled her hair down a lot — 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."

But since it IS a royal wedding, Lydia thinks the future Duchess will go for an elegant chignon.

Whatever the hairstyle, we know Meghan will look amazing!
