Tracey Gray Mann, makeup artist for Vera Wang's latest bridal collection praises Meghan's flawless skin

"Her beautiful skin will be, undoubtedly, flawless and I would imagine she’ll probably wash over her freckles with a light foundation and use concealer under the eyes ensuring the skin stays glowy but not shiny," Tracey shared. "She may use a skin brightener underneath or mixed with the foundation and a translucent powder on the t-zone to avoid shine in photographs."

Armani Luminous Silk is the foundation Tracey would use

The acclaimed makeup artist also predicted that 36-year-old Meghan will opt for a sheer cream blush, and will fill her full eyebrows in, enhancing her natural shape in a subtle way. She added: "Waterproof mascara on the roots of the lashes only, to avoid the spidery look which will date quickly. If she used a subtle cream highlighter around the eyes this would give the appearance of opening the eyes, with a hint of soft brown shadow to define the shape. A kohl pencil in a nude colour used on the waterline will also give the appearance of opening the eyes. I think the lips will be hydrated, maybe a natural lip pencil and a touch of sheer gloss in the centre."

Tracey also gave us an insight into the products she would use to emphasise Meghan's natural beauty - and which would also photograph well: "To capture the glow of perfect skin I would use Armani Luminous Silk – oil free fluid foundation. Concealer would be YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Highlighting Pen.

The tiny light particles create a healthy natural glow and photograph well. Chanel nude kohl eyeliner in the waterline to give the appearance of wider, fuller and more awake eyes. ByTerry lip liner in perfect nude or rose contour all over the lips for definition, and a touch of Dior’s lipglow in pink or berry, a light reflecting lip balm."
