Meghan wore a €10 beauty product on her wedding day

This is why we love her.

Meghan Markle has always struck us as down-to-earth and she proved it with one of her beauty choices for her wedding day.


The new Duchess of Sussex chose a beautiful understated wedding gown and followed that through in her makeup, which looked super natural.

She also went for a natural nail and wore a very affordable brand.

Cosmo reports that Meghan's nail colour was Ballet Slippers by Essie, which you can pick up for less than a tenner.

It's a favourite of her new grandmother-in-law Queen Elizabeth and is the ideal bridal nail shade - pale pink and fairly opaque.

There's actually protocol that royal brides must follow with their manicures (yes, really), which is probably why Meghan chose that colour.

Royal brides must have neat, clean nails and if they want to paint their nails they have to have them looking natural.

It could have something to do with the fact that the Queen reportedly thinks coloured nail polish is 'vulgar'.

Her personal hairdresser requested that a bottle of Ballet Slippers be sent to Buckingham Palace back in 1989 and it's been a bestselling shade ever since.
