I’ll preface this by saying that your wedding day makeup look is too important to get wrong. It will literally haunt you for the rest of your life in your photos.
There’s so many different wedding makeup looks you can go for, depending on your taste and your individual features, colouring and so on.
And because everything is on the internet, there’s stacks and stacks of bridal makeup tutorials on Youtube.
I recommend, unless you are someone who is extremely talented and proficient at makeup artistry, that you leave the makeup on the day to a trained professional who has all the right products and knows how to apply them so they’ll last throughout the day.
But I’m sharing them for the a) small per cent out there who can probably pull off doing their own makeup and b) for the rest of you to get some inspo and see what sorts of different looks are out there before you talk to your own makeup artist.
Here’s some of the better ones on the ‘tube for you to squizz at.
