Meghan Markle Doing Her Makeup in an Uber Is Seriously Impressive


Anyone who's ever applied eyeliner or mascara while commuting has a superpower, whether they know it or not. Between bumps in the road, stop-and-go traffic, and all the other joys of being a passenger in a bustling city,В applying a full face of makeup on the road (or on the tracks) is a skill we all deserve to list on our LinkedIns.В For the most part,В the prowess is reserved for laypeople, though. Celebrities and tastemakers have their own glam squad to perfect their looks before they step in their cars. But recently, BridesВ resurfaced a 2016 video of Meghan Markle-in partnership with Uber and Bobbi Brown-artfully "retouching" her makeup with Brown's Retouching stick products, perfect for when you're running between meetings and events.В

In the video, Markle is joined by Brown herself for a makeup refresh before a meeting of her own. Brown (who actually says she always does her makeup in the back of a car) hands Markle her Retouching Wand, which Brown calls a "Cinderella wand," toВ spot-treat any areas where you'd normally reapply foundation. (Brown says you can even apply it all along your face as it's super blendable and meant to be an exact match for skin.)В She then hands Markle herВ Retouching Face PencilВ in a lighter shade to conceal any "spots" and to brighten the under-eye area. The pencil is also offered in a pearlized Illuminate shade for a quick glow-up, which Markle applies along her cheekbones. Within minutes, she's ready to take on her meeting with an airbrushed finish and luminous glow-perfectly suited for a soon-to-be-princess.
