For Meghan Markle, becoming the Duchess of Sussex has doubled as an opportunity to hone a beauty equation worthy of modern royal. And just as her trademark raven lengths are known to swing freely over her shoulders or escape insouciantly from easy updos, Markle's makeup—and manicures—seem to be colored by a simple yet striking monochromatic palette.
Today, for a visit to the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibit at London's Southbank Centre with husband Prince Harry, the Duchess drew from the hue of her sleeveless Nonie trench dress when considering her head-to-toe look, opting for cheeks awash in a warm shade of blushing pink and an identical swipe of lipstick. But to ensure the statement added up, she selected a fresh shade of pastel rose nail lacquer that was a pitch perfect match to her dress, heels, and even her Mulberry clutch—and made for a subtly sophisticated new riff on the anything-but-basic royal manicure.
