There's one makeup tool that Meghan Markle simply can't live without - and that's her Beautyblender! The £17 makeup sponge - which is available at Selfridges – has become a staple amongst beauty fans, and it seems the 36-year-old star is no exception. According to Refinery 29, Meghan's former makeup artist Lydia F. Sellers recently shared some of Meghan's beauty secrets, revealing that the actress enjoyed embracing her natural complexion and liked to have her gorgeous freckles on show. Lydia explained: "Every time I'd do her makeup, 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." The makeup artist went on to reveal she would use the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation on Meghan (a medium coverage formula loved by many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian) which she applied with a Beauty Blender as "it's really easy to sheer out".

HELLO! spoke to the creators of the clever tool to get the lowdown on how to use the Beautyblender correctly: "All Beauty Blenders should be used wet," they explained. "You know Beautyblender is in perfect condition for use when it has expanded to twice its original size." The best way to wet the tool is fail safe and easy – "Run your Beautyblender under the tap. Squeeze out excess water and towel dry. Bounce foundation, bb cream, cc cream and powder products on with the original Beautyblender for a perfect makeup application every time." Just like a toothbrush or mascara, its important to replace the blender every three months.
