Meghan Markle and Prince Harry flew back from their trip to New York on a private jet provided by the company that made Cindy Crawford the richest supermodel in the world.
Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Kelly Clarkson and Heidi Klum have all had beauty product lines with direct marketing company Guthy-Renker earning them millions of dollars.
The infomercial specialists made the career of self-help guru Tony Robbins and launched cosmetics with talk show host Leeza Gibbons, Dallas actress Victoria Principle, and celebrity stylist Chaz Dean.
What could this mean for beauty junkie Meghan?
In the last few years alone, we’ve had Rihanna treat us to Fenty Beauty, followed by Fenty Skin.
There’s also Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Sin. Not to mention J-Lo Beauty, Keys Soul Care by Alicia Keys and Jessica Alba’s Honest Beauty – and that’s not even all of them.
"If Meghan decides to launch a beauty line it will send her wealth stratospheric," an expert exclusively tells OK!.
"After her wedding, searches for 'Meghan Markle wedding makeup' hit the roof. Her products would be as luxury and exclusive as Victoria Beckham's."
Here are the signs Meghan's building a beauty empire…
Getting close to Bill
Meghan and Harry have been getting close to Bill Guthy, the co-founder of beauty marketing firm Guthy-Renker who is worth more than £367million.
The couple reportedly made several visits to co-founder Bill Guthy's home in Carpinteria, California, with Meghan's mum Doria between February and March.
Then their was the private jet trip…
Passionate about products
Meghan has the most expensive skincare regime of all the Royal Family members, dermatologist Mehmet Göker tells OK!.
According to Mehment, the Duchess spends around £619.97 a month. (Kate Middleton's comes in at £312.68.)
Here's her product breakdown:
- Nivea Sun Immediate Protection Moisturizing Sun Spray – £5.99
- Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder exfoliator – £57.50
- Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum – £68
- Decleor Aromessence Rose D' Orient Soothing Oil Serum – £50
- Face oil: Caudalie Permier Cru Precious Oil – £52
- Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment -£21.50
- Biore Daily Cleansing Cloths – £9.99
- Nichola Joss facial – £350
- Small container of tea tree oil – £4.99
Mehmet Göker says: "Meghan has a huge range of products in her cosmetics cupboard, ranging from budget to hugely pricey. One of the most widely useful products in my opinion, is the tea tree oil – coincidentally, the cheapest thing in there."
Sporting new look
Meghan has opted for a more dramatic look at recent events.
When she married Harry and became a royal in 2018, Meghan’s makeup was well-known for being pared back and subtle.
But since moving to California with her husband, she’s regularly sported a much bolder, Hollywood look.
During her acting days, Meghan said she didn't wear foundation outside of filming.
She told Best Health in 2015: "As I'm getting older, my approach to ageing is quite different.
"I make sure that I take care of my skin and body, especially with the work hours I have."
No longer held back by royal protocol, Meghan appears to be having more fun with her makeup…
Beloved beauty blog
Before marrying Harry, Meghan ran the lifestyle/fashion blog The Tig, which gave her one foot in the world of influencers and a platform to share tips and tricks with fans.
She would often reveal the products she uses in her beauty regime, including how she gets her hair so famously sleek.
Used to trying out new products and comparing formulas, it wouldn't be the biggest jump…
Make-up guru pal
While Meghan has apparently ditched a lot of friends since marrying Harry, one she's firmly kept in her circle is celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin.
The makeup guru worked for her at her and Harry’s wedding, and is renowned for being behind Meghan’s luminous skin and natural makeup look.
Earlier this year, Daniel said: “I'm always going to be Meghan Markle's makeup artist for the rest of my life. Which is totally fine because we're friends.
“I think if we didn't have a personal connection, it would definitely be different.”
Money in the bank
The couple aren't short of cash to get a new business up and running and have already netted a reported £239million since leaving the UK.
Harry was estimated to be worth around £29.5m in 2019, before he and Meghan made the move to the States with their son, Archie, now two.
After allegedly running up a colossal taxpayer bill in the UK, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who are also parents to four-month-old Lilibet – have been racking up their earnings.
They landed a £30million deal with Spotify for their own podcast.
The couple also bagged a £112million Netflix deal and have appeared at a string of lucrative speaking events, averaging at £756k a speech.
