Laura’s London founder Laura said: ‘Meghan’s makeup choices are where her look really stands out and where she makes her mark.
‘Being her first public appearance in nearly two years she has gone low-key with her outfit, but her makeup is more dramatic than what we’ve seen in recent photos and videos.
‘She seems inspired by her old signature red carpet style and we’re not used to seeing such defined makeup looks since she married Prince Harry.’
She explained: ‘Her new “Hollywood” brows are much more defined and they are filled with powder to enhance their appearance. It’s all about the brows with this look.

‘Her nude lip is a great choice because it captures light by opting for a glossy finish that helps compliment her dusky complexion. Nude lips also go perfectly with her smoky eyes and her balance is fine.’

‘Center parting will easily cover the areas that are most likely to be affected by hair thinning after pregnancy. Her hairdresser could recommend this style to prevent further damage and it’s a clever trick to hide any visible damage.
‘Her recent Time cover featured an excessive amount of hair extensions, which also leads me to believe that she may be struggling with her natural hair density after the birth of her daughter, Lilibet.’
