First and foremost aim to have your skin looking its best.  Make up looks best if you have a great base to begin with so plenty of water and a great diet is essential. And before your wedding have a facial for your skin type.To decide on your make up style think of a few words that encapsulate your desired look and elaborate on them. For example ‘elegant’ and ‘timeless’. Then think of what eye and lip colours represent the words. Everything will flow from there.

Accentuate a feature – be it eyes, cheekbones or eyebrows and keep the rest natural with a little colour. Then I like to put a dusting of powder over the face or the T-zone to finish the look.I hope this post was useful to all you beautiful brides to be.Have a smashing day!Mwah xoxoxNina SinghProfessional Make up Artist
