Meghan Markle always looks impossibly chic, but it turns out so much of her look is attainable. For one, she’s frequently photographed in affordable fashion, like this $35 maternity dress or this $99 top. And also: She does her own makeup.
Yes, you read that correctly: Meghan Markle does her own makeup. Not for every occasion, obviously. Her good friend, makeup artist Daniel Martin, put together her royal wedding look, but nine times out of 10 she likes to hold the reins—or eyelash curler, I should say.

And the reason is quite simple: Markle just likes doing it. According to Us Weekly, there are rumors the Duchess of Sussex is no-fuss with her glam to “compete” with Kate Middleton, who also does her own makeup. But this isn’t true: “[Markle] just likes doing her own makeup,” a source tells the magazine. “It has nothing to do with Kate. Meghan has her makeup done for some special occasions but likes to do it herself.”
A few favorites we know she loves (which she shared back during her acting days) include Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria, Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat, and Nars Orgasm Blush.Getty Images
Also not true are the rumors Middleton and Markle have some kind of “feud”going on. That idea popped up last year after tabloids reported Middleton left Princess Charlotte’s dress fitting for Markle’s wedding “in tears.” Katie Nicholl, author of Harry and Meghan: Life, Loss, and Love, shut this down to Glamour last week.
“I think this idea of there being a catfight between the two duchesses has made tantalizing headlines, but I don’t believe that,” Nicholl, who covers the royals for both Vanity Fair and The Daily Mail, said. “I’ve never heard from my sources that there has ever been a feud or a falling-out. I had heard about an upset over the dress fitting for Princess Charlotte. And I had heard that while Harry was very keen for the two of them to become best friends, there was never that sort of a friendship.”
