In addition to more tricks and tips, I’ll be posting two classic bridal make-up tutorials this week. There are many looks you can do for a wedding but for now I’m keeping it simple and elegant.

I cant guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.
