Meghan Markle’s Beauty Evolution Is One For The History Books

Beauty ELLE Australia

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged! Here, a look at all of Meghan Markle's best beauty looks from 2006 until now.
'Back in November, news spread around the world that Prince Harry had proposed to his new love, actress Meghan Markle. At first, we were sceptical—surely it was a case of tabloid speculation gone viral. But on this occasion, the rumours were true. Harry, or the 'party prince' as he's affectionately known, was ready to settle down. Last month, 36-year-old Meghan married Prince Harry and officially became a member of the British royal family . The ceremony was broadcast to millions (and millions!) of well-wishers around the world. However, this isn't Meghan's first foray into the spotlight—the actress has been walking red carpets for years as part of her high profile role as Rachel Zane on Suits . Here, we take a look at Meghan's beauty transformation, from 2006 until now: Erin Cook Meghan Markle’s Beauty Evolution Is One For The History Books Pictured in 2006 at the COACH Legacy Photo Exhibit.

The Latest In High-Tech Beauty And Health Tools

Beauty Harper's BAZAAR

The future of beauty is n̶e̶a̶r here.
'The next generation of beauty is here and it's much smarter than its predecessor. Imbued with DNA-personalised skincare, hands-free makeup and hair health-enhancing stylers, the beauty industry has called upon technology's biggest disruptors to deliver a new (and scientifically proven) standard. Time to up your beauty game? Here, BAZAAR 's update on the latest in high-tech beauty. 1. Augmented Reality Makeup Artificial Intelligence is becoming increasingly more integrated within the beauty space. 'Try-on' technology is now considered standard practice for many makeup and skincare brands such as Tom Ford, where customers can have their consultation recorded and the file later sent to their phone. Sephora now has a virtual makeover app that allows you to trial a full face of makeup, even allowing you to choose between makeup brands and shades. L'Oreal, one of the world's largest beauty companies, has invested heavily in augmented reality with the recent acquisition of Canadian tech company, ModiFace. Whether on the lookout for your next manicure or eyeshadow, ModiFace will most likely have the app to enhance your beauty plight. So what's to come? The tech team behind the smart-skincare and oral care giant Foreo are in the early stages of developing a digital makeup artist that could potentially see the end of makeup application as we know it. The Moda digital makeup artist app sources looks from celebrities to recreate on the user's face. Users select the programmed makeup look they wish to replicate and the style is then transmitted to the Moda device. Embedded with facial scanning software and a biometric lens, the app determines the characteristics of your face and their precise orientation, ensuring makeup is printed only onto the exact areas it's meant to. Then, 2000 ultra-fine nozzles begin to dispense mineral makeup 'ink' onto the skin—all in less than 30 seconds. Bid farewell to your makeup brush collection and YouTube tutorial playlists; makeup 2.0 could be here sooner than we think. In the meantime, technologies such as the touch-screen HiMirror Mini come Alexa, Spotify and Youtube-enabled, and include several ambient lighting settings to support makeup application. With skin analysis functions, it can also recommend products and lists them in a 'beauty box'. Smart. 2. High-Tech Heat Tools Last year, 25 years after the brand began learning how to manipulate airflow—and two years after the release of its award-winning Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer —Dyson unveiled the Dyson Airwrap™ styler . Promising unprecedented levels of at-home hair styling, the engineering feat can produce hairstyles in just minutes. Developed with six attachments (each used to achieve a different style), the innovation is designed to prevent extreme heat damage and comes embedded with a lightweight yet powerful digital V9 motor and patented intelligent heat control technology. \'For many years, extreme heat has been used to style hair,\' explains Sir James Dyson. \'Through testing in our laboratories, we found that styling with extreme heat can irreparably damage hair. We knew there had to be a better way.\' Harnessing an aerodynamic phenomenon known as the Coanda effect, the Dyson Airwrap™ styler simultaneously dries and styles hair. Air, when propelled at the right speed and pressure, naturally follows an adjacent surface, entraining surrounding hair. Using the method, Dyson engineers formulated a way of applying the method to style hair. Dyson's successful foray into haircare indicates a shift in focus for the industry itself. No longer will at-home efficiency and style suffice; the consumer is wanting it all, and that includes hair that looks and feels healthier. 3. Facial Workouts Favoured by model Jourdan Dunn, the FaceGym beauty empire is inspired by physical training practices. 'A gym for your face', the new fitness and beauty hybrid has gained a cult following, with multiple studios now open across London and New York. Founded by Inge Theron, a writer who formerly travelled the world reviewing cutting-edge spa treatments for the Financial Times , the new-gen facial transcends simple apply-and-remove-product rituals to deliver an extensive and deeply penetrative procedure that is geared toward more than 40 muscles from the neck up. Therapists—or 'face trainers'—are each known for their unique expertise, which extends to releasing facial knots, face contouring and detoxifying. Now, the FaceGym movement is available in take-away form thanks to the FaceGym Pro . A small device that's used with a Collagen Infusion Serum, the FaceGym Pro lifts, tones and tightens the skin in just 10 minutes. The gadget applies mild yet forceful EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) to the face, strengthening thousands of small muscle fibres that gradually lose electricity overtime. 4. Customised Skincare In 2019, your face can do more than just unlock your phone—it can now reveal information about your health and beauty routine. Skincare brand Neutrogena entered the digital customisation space last year, introducing Skin360 , its user-friendly skin-scanning device. Connecting to smartphones, the tool enables the use of a magnifying camera, which scans and evaluates your skin health to determine what products and ingredients are best suited to your needs. Now, the brand is upping-the-ante with its latest tech instalment: MaskiD . A companion product to Skin360, MaskiD (landing in US markets this September) is a 3-D-printed sheet mask. Aimed at responding to the consumer's growing interest in bespoke beauty solutions, the personalised product aims to deliver clinic-level results to consumers from their home. Analysing pore size, moisture levels and fine lines, the app uses precise measurements of your face to determine the size parameters of your sheet mask. Recommending a list of ingredients for your skin, you can tailor your mask to suit your concerns, hit order and have it delivered to your door. Not yet available on the Australian market, the app has already garnered impressive beauty buzz and indicates the future of beauty is well and truly here. Brought to you by Dyson'

Supermodel Bella Hadid has had many looks over the years. Here, we take a look at her before and after..
'While Bella Hadid is undoubtedly a chameleon when it comes to fashion (she is a supermodel, after all), she arguably doesn't receive enough credit for her ever-evolving beauty looks . Although she may not be wildly experimental in the vein of a Lady Gaga or Kylie Jenner, Hadid's always had a knack for bringing a touch of edginess to a classic look, whether it's through a dramatic winged eye or an ultra-slick ponytail, a move which has taken her from 'It' girl to supermodel in a matter of years. Having had many memorable looks in recent times (we are still obsessed with her 2019 Met Gala pixie cut ), we thought it worthy to take a look back over Hadid's incredible beauty evolution.

From Bobbi Brown to Lancome, these are the 20 beauty products that Kate Middleton swears by for her iconic beauty look.
'Although you might not see her wearing a bold lipstick colour or a sculptural eyeliner look, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, knows her way around the beauty block. Since stepping onto the royal scene with her now-iconic glossy blow-out and subtle smoky eye in 2010, Kate has made an art out of her signature makeup look, always looking put-together at events. Pairing glowing skin (courtesy of a strict skincare routine, regular facials and a healthy diet ) with a low-key beauty look and bouncy hair, the mother-of-three ensures she always looks flawless, whether she's on a tennis court or in Buckingham Palace. And, thankfully for those wanting a slice of that duchess-glow, a few of her favourite products have been revealed over the years.

8 Celebrities With And Without Their Signature Eye Makeup

Beauty Harper's BAZAAR

Eye makeup can completely transform your face, and celebrities are no exception. We round up the stars who look very different without their signature eye makeup.
'Anyone who's dabbled in makeup will be able to tell you about the power of a well-applied slick of eyeliner, or the instant effect one wave of the mascara wand can have. Whether or not you're a fan of eye makeup, there's little doubt it can completely transform your look (for better or for worse, in the case of our blue eye shadow days). And for some stars, their stage presence or public identity is intertwined with their signature beauty look, whether that be bold false eyelashes, strong eyebrows, smokey shadow or a perfect winged cat's eye. While they look just as gorgeous without their signatures, these stars also look incredibly different, and some almost unrecognisable. Thanks to their stunning fair hair, or unexpected natural colouring, or even just a more pared-back, relaxed vibe, these celebrities are able to switch up their look simply by swiping a makeup remover pad over their eyelids. Below, we round up eight stars with and without their signature eye makeup. Susannah Guthrie 8 Celebrities With And Without Their Signature Eye Makeup Zendaya: On the red carpet, the actress favours shimmery nudes and bold smoky palettes, as well as a seriously defined brow. Off-duty, however, she embraces her natural glow and keeps eye makeup to a minimum. Taylor Swift: The singer loves a cat's eye almost as much as she loves her Instagram-famous cats, but even without her signature winged look, her blue eyes still pop. Sophie Turner: The naturally fair-haired Game of Thrones star colours her brows and loves lashings of mascara when on-duty, but her holiday face consists of fresh, clear skin and not a slick of eyeliner in sight. Madelaine Petsch: The Riverdale actress is a natural redhead, meaning she usually likes to wear bold false lashes and a darker brow pencil on the red carpet to give her gorgeous, naturally fair complexion a camera-ready boost. Gwyneth Paltrow: The natural blonde is very comfortable makeup-free, and her sunkissed off-duty beauty look is quite the departure from her sleek, defined red carpet makeup. Kesha: Pop star Kesha loves to experiment with makeup and hair looks, and is known for wearing everything from false feather lashes to rhinestone-encrusted eyeliner. But in her downtime, the singer is more than happy to let her fair colouring, and enviable freckles, shine through. Katy Perry: If there's one thing that defines Katy Perry's ever-changing beauty look more than any other, it's her love of thick, luscious false eye lashes. But even without these eye-catching add-ons, she's just as striking. Adele: She might wear winged eyeliner like war paint on her epic concert stages, but Adele has no hesitation embracing a bare face when she's at home.'
