Prepping the skin is really important for getting a flawless base and Lydia explains why. She said: "Meghan's secret to glowing skin is her night-before-prep. She uses ICONIC London's beautiful multi-use spray, Prep, Set, Glow. Meghan gently spritzes this mist 10 minutes before bedtime as the final part of her beauty regime and wakes up with skin that imparts luminescence."

 Lydia also recommends using a high quality, grainy exfoliator to banish any dead skin cells. She reveals that a flawless complexion "starts with a good base." She continued "I think exfoliating is underrated and should be done more often by all. It creates a canvas for your makeup to sit beautifully on without a barrier of dead skin on the surface, which causes makeup to slip off or become absorbed."

Meghan's foundation – which is also loved by a variety of Hollywood A List celebrities including Kim Kardashian – is the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 3.5. Lydia advises Meghan to go one step further, and add ICONIC London Illuminator drops to her favourite foundation.

"These can be added to ensure naturally glowing skin that defines her gorgeous bone structure," she said. "Very few faces require only one shade, so I like to mix more than one colour to match the complexity and depth of the skin."

The fiancée of Prince Harry is known for her stunning doll-like eyes and Lydia agrees! "Meghan has the most beautiful dark eyes. I think enhancing them with complimenting earthy tones, as she does, is the way to go. Using products with a bronze tint to them is best to make the eyes really pop. Meghan’s go-to palette is ICONIC London Day to Slay Eyeshadow Palette. A great mascara is key for lots of volume in the lash. I really love this one by ICONIC London in Black. I layer it on a few times because she really loves a voluminous look."

Meghan is also a big fab of Mac – and uses Kohl Eyeliner in Teddy. "I use it on her inner waterline for a bronzy finish, and it really frames her eyes," Lydia adds. Lastly, Meghan is known for her neural lips with a hint of rose-toned hues, and Lydia tells us that Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria is her to-go-to shade.
