The inspiration behind Meghan’s wedding make-up has been revealed

Meghan Markle’s wedding to Prince Harry on 19 May 2018 was the biggest royal event in decades and of course, that meant every detail had to be perfect.

From her timeless Clare Waight Keller designed Givenchy wedding dress to her stunning 16 feet long veil, no one could deny that the duchess looked breathtaking from head to toe.

But one thing that has been particularly applauded over and over again is Duchess of Sussex’ bridal make-up. Staying true to herself, Meghan kept it natural with classic glam, a light lip and a flush of freckles. But where did she go to for inspiration?

Well, Daniel Martin, Meghan’s friend and longtime make-up artist who was behind her magical look on the big day, recently revealed that the two worked together by browsing through bridal looks on Pinterest.

That’s right, just like the rest of us, Meghan turned to the popular mood board platform for inspiration when choosing her wedding look.

Daniel, who has worked with an extensive roster of A-list celebrity clients including Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, and Elisabeth Moss, recently appeared on beauty podcast, Gloss Angeles, where he detailed the process.

‘We exchanged Pinterest pictures over text,’ Martin explained. ‘Pinterest is an incredible tool to use as a reference.’

The two did so much research that they didn’t even need to do a make-up trial ahead of Meghan’s wedding day. That, plus that the fact that she must really trust his abilities.

Meghan’s complete look was made up of flawlessly minimal foundation, a neutral smokey eye and a light pink lip with a hint of blush on her cheeks.

Earlier this year, Daniel told ELLE just how to create radiant looking skin, just like Meghan’s, saying: ‘Get your hands dirty! People don’t touch their faces anymore. There’s so many tools and sponges now that there’s a disconnect when you’re not able to get your hands on your foundation or moisturiser and actually work it into your skin.’

He continued: If you do your make-up with your hands and get rid of the brushes, you’ll notice that there’s a radiance and a liveliness to the skin that you don’t get using the tools.’
