  • Meghan Markle’s hair and makeup appear to be going through a royal beauty evolution.
  • Lately, she’s traded her casual bun hairstyle for bouncy waves reminiscent of Kate Middleton’s.
  • Though she tends to opt for light and natural-looking makeup, she recently appears to be experimenting with bolder looks like blush and highlighter.Meghan Markle officially joined the royal family a little over a month ago, and already seems to be adjusting to her new life. Since the royal wedding, she has taken on a slew of important firsts, and her fashion and beauty choices also appear to be changing at each new event.

    When Markle first caught everyone’s attention back in November, she made her mark with her own unique sense of style. Though she wore her hair down for her engagement announcement, she very quickly established the “casual bun” as her go-to signature hairstyle — which some thought broke protocol.

    For her gorgeous wedding to Prince Harry in May, Markle traded her casual bun for a slightly more polished up-do. She kept the front of her hair slightly loose with a few wisps, which was one of the first signs that Markle would fuse more traditional royal hairstyles with her unique sense of self. Markle’s makeup artist kept her look light and natural, which cemented the “no-makeup makeup” look as her signature style.

    For her first official event as a royal, Markle’s bun evolved once again — this time in a tightly pulled back and low-hanging style that her sister-in-law Kate Middleton has worn several times before.

    For Trooping the Colour and her first joint engagement with the queen, Markle let her sleek locks hang down in loose waves, signaling that the days of the casual bun may already be behind her. Though her hair seemed to change, she kept her makeup relatively low-key.

    On Tuesday, Markle attended the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards wearing her most royal look yet. She had her ends curled in a similar fashion to Middleton’s bouncy curls, and her makeup stole the show with a pop of rosy blush and a shimmering highlight.

    Though the similarities to Middleton are inevitable, Markle is still managing to let her “Markle Sparkle” shine through as she puts her own spin on traditional royal beauty.
