Meghan Markle did a makeup tutorial in the back of an Uber, and people can't get enough
Incoming princess Meghan Markle has certainly made a wave with the people. From the way that she handles herself during public appearances to her erstwhile career as an actress, it's evident that she will navigate being a royal on her own terms.
This is something that was made clear from the outset of Meghan and Prince Harry's courtship. After facing intense tabloid scrutiny, the Prince - who is due to wed Meghan on the 19th of May - has repeatedly urged the media and internet "trolls" to stop the "wave of abuse and harassment" that has plagued the 36-year-old Suits star and her family. And more recently, Prince Harry refused to sign a prenup before his wedding - against the wishes of Kensington Palace - insisting that his marriage will stand the test of time.
Yes, the rumour mill has kept the royal and Meghan Markle in the headlines for months, and it's only set to increase in the run-up to the big day. In the past few weeks alone, there has been an onslaught of news stories detailing everything from the precise shade of Meghan's wedding dress to the notes in the fragrance which was custom made for her big day.
But now that we're unlikely to the see the couple before their big day, we've had to mine the archives for the content we so desire. And luckily, we landed upon a gem: the future royal applying her makeup in the back of Uber - you know, like all the rest of us.
Back in 2016, makeup super-brand Bobbi Brown partnered with Uber for a campaign that offered customers in New York and LA free touch-ups during their journey in 10 minutes or less. Genius, right?
To promote the campaign, the two brands selected Meghan Markle as their first customer. In a newly-resurfaced video, Meghan tested out the deal with the help of makeup mogul Bobbi Brown herself. She jumped in an Uber with the makeup artist and spruced up her beauty look while on her way to a meeting with the Suits producers.
She began by trying out a retouching wand, which was designed to make for easy foundation and concealer application. "It's actually like a Cinderella wand for your skin," Brown explained.
Next, Meghan used a face pencil to correct any problem spots. She applied some on her forehead, and also on the inner corners of her eyes to brighten up the look.
Lastly, it was time for highlighter. Meghan used a retouching pencil in a shimmery shade to illuminate the high points on her face. After swiping it onto her cheekbones, she exclaimed that it gave her "such a pretty glow".

This quick and easy look was perfect for Meghan, who favours a no-fuss approach to beauty. "My routine is very simple," she revealed in an interview with Allure back in 2014. "I call it the five-minute face. It's just Touche Éclat, curled lashes, mascara, Chap Stick, and a little bit of blush."
However, she does like a little drama in the evenings. "If I'm going to amp it up for night, then I use MAC Teddy eyeliner, which is a really beautiful brown that has some gold in it," she continued.
Well, we can't help but wonder what kind of beauty look she will go for on her big day!
