Embracing your unique features — from moles and curly tresses to scars and thick eyebrows — is part of what makes you shine. Meghan Markle is all about embracing her distinct characteristics for her signature understated look.

Now, her former hair-and-makeup artist, Lydia F. Sellers, has spilled one more secret to her effortlessly chic glow. "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,'" Sellers told Refinery29 in a recent story. "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. So I'd use the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a Beautyblender because it's really easy to sheer out."
