The revelation came to light when fans asked her regularmake up artist, Daniel Martin, about one of the particular make up looks during the trip.

He said: “I didn’t [do the makeup] but she’s so good herself, right?”

“She did her makeup herself for this.”

During her trip to Ireland she has kept her make up very natural, revealing her freckles and wearing nude shades on her lips along with what appears to be a simple sweep of mascara on her lashes.

Daniel has spoken in the past about Meghan's desire to sport a natural look at public engagements.

Back in May when being interviewed ahead of her wedding he told Glamour: “She’s very much about keeping her skin as real and natural as possible. Right now, in makeup, so much is covered up and masked by contouring, strobing and creating this false dimension to what you naturally have.”
