1. Picking the perfect make-up artist

If you know someone who looked fabulous on their wedding day – ask them who their make-up artist was!

Personal recommendations are always the best.

Very often your wedding venue will have a list of mua’s that they recommend or you can search online.

If you love natural pretty make-up, avoid a mua that has a portfolio full of dark smokey eyes and bright lips.

If you find someone who is available, arrange a trial and make sure you take lots of images of looks that you love from magazines and online.

2. DIY wedding make-up

If you are confident in applying your own make-up (and you know wedding day nerves won’t get the better of you), you can opt to apply your wedding day make-up.

Remember though, wedding make-up is different to applying regular make-up .

it has to last all day and look photographically perfect in daylight as well as indoors.

Book a lesson with a pro mua or you can always book a tutorial on a make-up counter.

I recommend using a store such as Space NK, as they sell different brands and you can cherry pick the best of each brand, rather than buying it all from one cosmetics counter.

3. Choosing your make-up look

If your wedding dress is soft, romantic and pretty, a heavy smoky sexy make-up is not going to compliment your dress.

Even if you LOVE this style of make-up, you will need to soften it slightly so that it works with the gown. Again, the same applies to your hair.

 if you choose a soft, boho, loose hair design, you will need to keep the make-up pretty and dewy.

 so that everything works ‘together’ rather than clashing. Look through bridal magazines (Brides Magazine is the best) and online for inspiration.

you can get great ideas not only from bridal magazines, but also from red carpet images.

the hair and make-up on the red carpet is always stunning!
