Prince Harry's fiancée Meghan Markle has something in common with reality star Kim Kardashian – they both swear by the same foundation! The base product in question is the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, which is priced at £42. The high-end foundation is a favourite of the future royal – and the actress's makeup artist Lydia F. Sellers confirmed that she used to apply the foundation with a beauty blender sponge and 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."

Meghan has incredible, fresh skin 

Wife of Kanye West Kim has made no secret of her love for the medium coverage formula and even hit headlines in 2015, when she 'panic tweeted' - believing that her foundation of choice had been discontinued. She used the smoothing skin formula in a makeup tutorial on her hugely followed app and has mentioned it in countless beauty interviews.

The product is praised for having a dream-like consistency; it's creamy, light, doesn't feel at all heavy on your skin and best of all- it's buildable.

Also, it doesn't contain SPF – which means there is no ghostly flashback if you are being photographed – which is great for both Meghan and Kim, who are used to being snapped in public.

Meghan is quite the beauty fan and her favourite products include a mixture of high end items such as NARS Orgasm blusher to Nivea's bargain body cream. HELLO! spoke with Tracey Gray Mann – the makeup artist behind Vera Wang's most recent bridal collections and she expects the actress to opt for simple, timeless make-up to suit her skin, acknowledging that her wedding photos "will be a part of history."
