Bridal tiaras and crowns first became popular after Kate debuted her Cartier Halo in 2011, but now get a "bad rep for feeling dated," says Brown. "I'm sure they will only become more popular, given Meghan did end up wearing a tiara on her wedding day."

Markle's "barely there" makeup is providing bridal beauty inspiration, too. She tapped makeup artist Daniel Martin to create her wedding-day look: slight smokey eye, neutral rose-pink lipstick, and luminescent skin spotlighting her freckles.

Her decision to show off her natural complexion prompted posts from admirers about embracing their own freckles, using the hashtag #freckleslikemeghan. Some freckle fanatics are even going so far as to get face tattoos to look more like the duchess. Gabrielle Rainbow, who specializes in giving semipermanent faux-freckle tattoos, told NewBeauty that she has been "crazy busy" with requests for the $250 treatment (approx. $330 AUD) and believes the royal wedding definitely "boosted customers' interest in the whole idea of freckles."

Markle's minimal makeup is part of a larger "no makeup makeup," trend for brides, says Brown. "In general, bridal hair and makeup have become increasingly less fussy over the years, it's all about the undone updo and letting your natural beauty shine through."

She adds, "I think now that such an iconic figure has embraced a very fresh-faced wedding day look, more brides are likely to adopt it as well, especially if simple makeup feels true to their personal style."
