In the past few years, Meghan has been in the news for many reasons. For example, her love life with Harry is a fascinating topic for a lot of people. Their engagement, marriage, and family life have been talked about in various news outlets.

In early 2020, Meghan and Harry stepped down as senior royals and moved to California. This event has been widely covered as well. There are numerous articles about their California house and their plans for financial independence from the royal family.

In 2021, Meghan and Harry also began giving interviews to talk about their time as royals. The couple accused one unnamed royal of making racially charged comments about their son, and Meghan also claimed she was mistreated by palace staffers. These accusations have made headlines all around the world.

Royals are photographed often at events, and many of Meghan’s noteworthy looks as a royal were likely curated entirely on her own.

“She just likes doing her own makeup,” a source told Us Weekly in 2019. “Meghan has her makeup done for some special occasions but likes to do it herself.”

An insider also told People (via Elle), “I was with her last month, and she was going on a public engagement. Harry and I were sitting with the dogs, and we were all chatty, and she’s painting her nails. Except for her wedding, she does all her own makeup. Dresses herself, styles herself.”

When Meghan wanted professional advice, she had been known to turn to trusted sources, such as her close friend Jessica Mulroney. Mulroney is a stylist who used to style Meghan when she was still an actor on Suits.
