This Is Why Meghan Markle Has Gone DIY On Her Makeup

Her wedding makeup artist reveals all.


As rumours swirled back in May that Meghan Markle would copy her soon-to-be sister in law Kate Middleton, by doing her own make-up for the royal wedding, we awaited the pictures in anticipation to see just how successful the actress's efforts would be. Of course, we expected nothing less than her usual beaut self. 

However, as the biggest wedding of the year arrived, it was revealed that make-up artist and Dior beauty ambassador Daniel Martin had been the man behind Meghan's bridal glow. Letting a professional do your makeup for the most televised wedding since Princess Diana's? Probs a good shout Meg.

But, ever the most relatable member of the royal family, the Duchess of Sussex has since gone down the DIY route, doing her own make-up for recent public appearances.

"She’s gotten more comfortable doing her own make-up. She loves make-up and she’s good at it!", Meghan’s friend and go-to make-up artist, Daniel Martin, told PEOPLE.

"She’s been doing her make-up herself. She’s not fussy — she’s just trying to get it on and get out the door."

A member of the royal family that speaks out for women's rights, loves dogs and has the confidence to do her own makeup and just crack on? Meghan, you just became our woman goals all over again.
