Meghan Markle Is Causing a Spike in This Surprising Beauty Product
It’s been almost a year since Meghan Markle announced her engagement to Prince Harry, but the Meghan Effect is as big as ever. According to the Daily Mail, the Duchess of Sussex is causing a huge rise in drugstore brow pencils, but it’s not for the reason that one might think.
Instead of using the brow pencils to fill in their brows, customers are using the product to create freckles on their faces after being inspired by Markle’s signature sun-kissed marks. (The formerSuitsactor has talked about embracing her freckles many times and even wore a sheer foundation at her wedding in May to highlight them.)

The information comes from a recent report by Superdrug, one of the biggest drugstore chains in the United Kingdom. But the Markle Effect doesn’t end with brow pencils. Per Superdrug’s report, the duchess is also causing a rise in sheer concealers and natural-looking nail polishes.
The concealers should be a no-brainer as Markle is known for her fresh-faced looks, which highlight her freckles through a sheer coverage. But the nail polishes are a recent trend of the royal’s. Since becoming a member of the British royal family, Markle has been wearing natural-looking nail polishes, such as pale pinks and whites, to abide to the the family’s tradition, which prohibits loud, non-natural-looking colors, such as reds of yellows.
