If Meghan Markle ever finds herself hitting snooze one too many times and has to rush to get ready for a royal appearance with Prince Harry, she'll clearly have no problem finishing up her makeup in the car on the way there. In a 2016 video that resurfaced this week, the royal-to-be shows off just how steady a hand she has while touching up her makeup in the backseat of a moving vehicle.
The impressive clip was created to promote a partnership between Uber and Bobbi Brown at the time, according to an Uber rep; it gave hundreds of Uber riders in New York City and Los Angeles free rides equipped with makeup artists to retouch their makeup in just a few minutes—and a few lucky NYC passengers even got their makeup done by Brown herself.
In the video, Markle slides into the backseat of an SUV in Manhattan with her makeup already in basically flawless condition: She sports bronzed, glowy skin; a strong brow; a glossy pink lip; and matching peachy blush. She tells Brown, who's there to provide touch-up guidance, that she's heading to a meeting with movie producers while Suits is on hiatus. To help the actress-turned-royal make the best, most polished first impression possible, Brown walks her through using the Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencils and Wands to cover any pesky blemishes, brighten dark under-eye circles, and add a shimmery highlight to cheekbones and inner eyes. Of course, the pair pause for a moment amid the madness to meditate—because what's a backseat beauty session without a moment of zen?
Though it's unclear whether Markle will follow in soon-to-be sister-in-law Kate Middleton's footsteps and do her own makeup for her royal wedding, later this month, she'll almost certainly opt for her usual fresh-faced look. Earlier this year, several makeup artists spoke to Brides about their predictions for Markle's wedding-day makeup, and while they differed in how intense an eye look Markle might wear, nearly all of the artists surveyed speculated that the 36-year-old will don a gorgeous peachy lip and cheek tint—all the better to play up her natural California glow.
