Being a royal comes with some pretty amazing perks. Fabulous clothes, traveling the world, great connections -- all part of the royalty package. But, as it turns out, our new duchess Meghan Markle seems to be scrimping on her own personal primping team. Her Royal Highness has a trusty hairdresser, but when it comes time for some mascara ... well, Meghan's doing that all on her own. 

  • Meghan's wedding makeup artist and close friend Daniel Martin couldn't help but praise her look for her Royal Air Force celebration on Tuesday.

    He posted on Instagram, "Can we say my love #Meghanmarkle looking #chic AF in @dior today! #slay.” 

    Fans were quick to ask whether or not he had done her makeup for the event, and much to our surprise, Martin responded, "I didn’t but she’s so good doing it herself, right" and "She did her makeup herself for this.”

    All by herself???

  • If we are understanding this correctly, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, created this look with her own two hands.

    Those are some serious makeup skills right there. But with a makeup artist as a good friend, Meghan was bound to pick up a few tricks here and there. 

  • But now that she's a member of the royal family, Meghan could easily add a makeup artist to her team of assistants, so why doesn't she?

    Meghan had her makeup professionally done on the set of Suits, so she's probably pretty used to having someone do it for her. But perhaps she wants to keep things simpler in her new life -- well, as simple as it can be with her new royal duties. 

  • And we can safely assume that Meghan also did her own makeup throughout her and Prince Harry's entire trip to Ireland.

    Her personal hairdresser George Northwood traveled with the rest of the royal entourage to Dublin, but there was no makeup artist to be found. 

    Since their Irish journey was such a short one, Meghan might not have wanted to bother with brining along someone to do her makeup. So, it'll be interesting to see if she brings someone for their longer royal tour this fall

    But if we had to guess, we'd say Meghan is perfectly content doing things on her own.
