Hello. I had been looking at getting a make up artist for my big day, but having recently seen a poorly done job, I am now considering doing my own makeup and I am after hints and tips of the best products to use. Any help would be greatly received. Thanks.

Watch a tonnneeee of YouTube videos. You can learn a lot of tips and tricks on there. You’ll have to trial and error foundations to see what is right for you skin. A decent primer - MAC prep and prime is a good one for me. Lots of moisturising before the day. Just get practicing! xxx

I would say stay as natural as you can. Your fiance loves you for you. My fiance prefere me without make up, so mine will probably be a good curl mascara and a little shimmer eye shadow xx
