Meghan Markle’s make-up artist spills all

The person behind Markle’s amazing glow was Daniel Martin, who was with the former actress just hours before she walked down the aisle.

In an interview with Good Housekeeping, Martin revealed exactly what he did to ensure Markle had a beautiful complexion throughout the wedding. Given how the day turned out, we have to say that Martin’s mission was a huge success.

“What I particularly did was mix a bit of the luminiser with foundation so it integrated the glow,” Martin shared.

Instead of doing too much with a highlighter, Martin mixed Markle’s foundation with a luminiser, which built a dewy base for her big day. Martin’s technique is not complex and pretty much anyone with a luminiser and foundation could pull it off — which is pretty amazing.

But as far as looking like Meghan Markle is concerned, that might take a bit of extra work.

Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony inside St. George’s Chapel last year. The couple did not waste any time starting a family and welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison, earlier this year.

While Martin was concentrated on making Markle look gorgeous for the cameras, he also got a first-hand look at how she acted just prior to exchanging vows.

How was Markle on her wedding day?

Apart from the make-up talk, Martin dished on how Markle behaved on her special day. Between all of the planning and making sure everything falls into place, Weddings are super stressful for most people, but Markle handled it like a champ.

In fact, Martin revealed that Markle was very laid back on her big day and did not seem like she was worried at all.

While most people would sweat at the thought of their wedding being broadcast to millions of people around the world, Martin could not detect the slightest hint of stress on Markle.

“I don’t think she was nervous because we weren’t nervous. I mean, it was very very chilled,” he revealed.

Martin and Meghan Markle met while working on the set of Suits. The two struck up a friendship on the set of the show and have been close for the past 10 years.

Markle has not commented on the reports surrounding her wedding look, but it is interesting that Martin did not do anything too fancy.

Markle rocks a new wardrobe in South Africa

Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, recently returned home following their 10-day tour of South Africa. The trip was their first as a family of three and probably won’t be their last as a unit.

Not one to shy away from a photo op, Meghan Markle reportedly brought over 30 different outfits for the trip, which is about three for each day.

Although she definitely brought a lot of clothes, none of the items were terribly expensive. Markle made it a point to bring along clothes ordinary citizens could afford in an effort to highlight her charitable work.

She was also able to keep the costs down because there were no planned state dinners on the schedule. This freed Markle up from having to bring a designer gown or borrow a tiara from the royal family’s vault.

With Markle going with a more frugal approach to her fashion, Queen Elizabeth reportedly loved the move.

Inside sources claim that Her Majesty appreciated how Markle was keeping things low key and loved watching her enjoy herself with Prince Harry. She also liked seeing members of her family do things like dancing and handing out hugs, moves she would personally never do.

For the past few months, rumors have circulated that Markle and Queen Elizabeth are not at odds. The rumors kicked into high gear in the wake of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s private plane fiasco.

Queen Elizabeth has not confirmed the latest reports surrounding her relationship with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
