Meredith was born in England and lived there till she was 5 years old. She grew up as the youngest child of three, alongside her older sister and brother. She was a very active kid, which sometimes caused her trouble in the form of injuries. A few of her bottom teeth are fake due to an accident in her childhood. She was running around with her eyes closed, having fun, and accidentally ran straight to a pool. She has always been interested in beauty and makeup but didn't plan to pursue a career in that field. Instead, she graduated college with a bachelor's degree in Business and Marketing.

While she was in college, Meredith liked to experiment with her appearance. Once, she dyed her hair from platinum blond to pitch black in one sitting, only to regret it later. Because she wanted to travel, Meredith studied hard and managed to be picked for studies abroad. She studied in France, learning about their culture. Besides her appearance, Meredith experimented in other areas as well. She decided to change her lifestyle and started eating only vegan food. She stayed vegan for three years but unfortunately had to stop due to health reasons.

They talked for a bit and decided to add each other on Instagram. Brandon took the lead and messaged Meredith a day after, thanking her for a good time and asking her out. She accepted, and after some more dates, they started dating. They have been together ever since, often appearing on each other's social media.

TikTok #thefoundationchallenge

Meredith's main action remained towards TikTok, where she has already built a steady fanbase. In 2021, she suddenly became even more popular due to a trend she started. Meredith was used to applying her makeup with her hands and didn't fear adding a little more than needed. She didn't think much about it until she noticed that people on TikTok had turned her makeup application into a trend. It was called #thefoundationchallenge. A lot of other users, including stars like Bobby Brown, were trying to apply their foundation the way Meredith did.

Unfortunately, people started to make fun of her and mock her for using too much foundation to show off her money. They also needed clarification as to why she was using her hands and not a beauty blender. Meredith responded to all their questions in an interview. She said that as a college student, she had to use only a little foundation, so it would last longer. She also picked up the habit of using her hands because she didn't have a beauty blender. But even after all the hate, Meredith stood her ground, confirming that using her hands for makeup application is normal. It doesn't suck up any products, and on top of that, she can feel her face which leads to better blending.
