Enjoy This Throwback Video of Meghan Markle Getting a Makeup Tutorial in the Back of an Uber
Back in 2016 when she was still starring on Suits and only newly dating Prince Harry, Meghan Markle did a makeup tutorial in the back of an Uber with Bobbi Brown — and there’s video to prove it. Sure, now she’s about to be the most famous bride on the planet, but once upon a time, she was a busy actress on-the-go, with only 10 minutes to touch up her look in the back of a car. As we all quell our royal wedding fever, the video has recently resurfaced, and it’s so much fun.
Allow us to explain: In 2016, Brown teamed up with Uber for a campaign in Los Angeles and New York City that gave riders the chance to touch up their beauty look in 10 minutes flat. Markle was tapped as the gorgeous face of the partnership. The then-lifestyle blogger was on her way to a meeting with producers, so she tried out a few of Brown’s best products, including the Bobbi Brown Retouching Wand ($42), which the makeup master said was like “a Cinderella wand for your skin.”

Markle then tried the Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil ($34) to cover up any problem spots or blemishes and brighten up your overall look. She used a second, more shimmery shade, to highlight her cheeks, giving this pick an enthusiastic thumbs up. Markle said the pencil gives “such a pretty glow.”
Check out the video below to see Markle’s quick touch-up routine in its entirety, which will have to hold us over until we can see her wedding day beauty look on May 19.
