Obsessed with Meghan Markle and wish you knew her full skincare and make-up routine? We do, too. While we still don’t have all the answers, we did figure out one piece of the puzzle this week. Her favorite concealer is the YSL Touche Éclat All-Over Brightening Concealer Pen. Luckily, we found it on sale during Sephora’s Holiday Savings Event, so you can snatch it up before it’s sold out. Get the concealer starting at 10 percent off if you’re a Sephora Beauty Insider. Don’t worry if you’re not a member, you can sign up for free at any time to take advantage of this deal. Now that we know this is the Duchess’s go-to, we can add it to our carts along with her favorite tote and mascara.
When Markle curated her own box with Birchbox in 2014, she sat down for an interview in which she mentioned that this YSL concealer was her all-time favorite. At that time — pre-Prince Harry — she was filming her TV show Suits at night and needed something to hide those under-eye circles. “To open up your eyes, apply a highlighter like Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat in the inner corner,” she said. “This trick is especially good when we’re filming at 3 a.m. and I need to look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.”
In 2021, famous TikTok creators are discovering this high-end concealer and deciding that it’s worth the price. Influencer —and makeup artist— @mikaylanogueira raved about her love of the applicator pen, which is easy to click and use. “This is genuinely an 11/10 for me,” she said. “It took a long time to splurge on it but I’m happy I did.”
