Donning minimal makeup, the now-Duchess of Sussex's natural beauty shined through on her big day. Daniel Martin, Meghan's longtime makeup artist and close friend who did her wedding-day makeup, described the look as "lit from within."

"When H [Harry] takes the veil off, and he sees her, that's, like, the moment I think a bride wants -- when she has that moment with her future husband," Martin told "Good Morning America."

"It wasn't about a trendy makeup. It wasn't about a lot of eye, or a lot of lip," he added. "It was about her, and her being confident."

Martin said that he initially found out about her wedding plans via emojis in a text message.

"She was, like, 'Hey -- what are you doing May 19th?'" he said. "And then she sent me two emojis of the bride and groom. I was, like, 'OK, yeah, whatever you need.'"

On the morning of her wedding day, Martin described Meghan as "very chill."

"We had breakfast. Guy, her dog was with us. We were playing around with him," he said. "It was a very chill morning ... her mom was there, which was amazing."

How he created Meghan Markle's wedding-day makeup

Martin said he used foundation and concealer on Markle, but he only "spot treated" with them.

"So instead of using it all over her face, I used it only where I needed to balance out any redness or uneven skin tone," he said. "And that was when you're able to see her freckles come through."

To achieve her smoky eye, Martin said he used a chestnut eyeshadow and false lashes only on the outer edges of her lids.

"They're like little wings for your eyes," he said of the falsies.

To apply eyeshadow, the makeup artist said he used "just a bit" and blended it in "with my finger," in order to follow the "shape of her eye."

He topped off the eye look with a chocolate brown eyeliner.

Martin described the look as "completely natural."

"We wanted it to just be her," he said. "She's a person who is very comfortable in her own skin. So she doesn't need to wear a lot."

Martin, who has known Markle for years, said that becoming a member of the British royal family and marrying Prince Harry hasn't changed her at all.

"That's the crazy thing," he said. "She's still the same person."
