Meghan Markle loves a nude lip – and so do British women it seems. Inspired by the Royal Princess-to-be, nude lipstick sales have gone up by 65% thanks to love for the Suits star.
According to new makeup brand, MEMI, founded by 21-year old entrepreneurs Millie Watson and Jack Thompson, sales of nude lipstick shot up when Prince Harry announced his engagement to Ms Markle, and she appeared on our TV screens sporting a classic, sophisticated taupe nude lip.

“The trend for sheer, nude lips and more natural makeup was first highlighted on the Spring/Summer 2017 catwalks and has been seen on bloggers and celebrities ever since,” says MEMImakeup.com co-founder and cosmetics expert Millie Watson. “Even stars like Nicole Scherzinger who is currently on our screens every Saturday night on X Factor has recently undergone a make-under, transitioning from bright red lipstick and heavy application, towards a softer more relaxed nude make up look. This look creates an illusion of being make-up free but with full coverage. The nude trend looks set to stay.”
