If you’re getting married soon, here’s some do’s and dont’s for wedding makeup.


The Dos


Trial your wedding makeup, ideally 3-5 weeks before thebig day. If you plan on using fake tan on the big day, do a test run WITH your make-up to ensure it all comes together properly.

When doing a makeup test, where a white t-shirt so you can see your makeup against a light colour as undoubtedly your dress will be light too – this was you can see if the makup works for you with your special dress.

You may like to consider emphasizing your eyes by using corrector or concealer under your eyes to brighten any darkness. This great if you don’t sleep on the night before your big day as it will help hide those bags!

Wedding makeup is different to your normal glam makeup – you need to make sure that your makeup includes enough colour to compensate for the whiteness of your dress.

If possible, use individual eyelashes rather than a strip with different lengths to provide a more natural look.

Ask your stylist to help you identify the most important elements of your look, for example natural looking skin or groomed eyebrows, first so the rest of your makeup stylinh falls into place.

Look beyond your normal techniques and look at different application methods with the help of your stylist to make sure your make-up looks great and last the whole day.

The Don’ts


Rely on your make-up styling under purely flourescant lighting – try to get natural daylight or appropriate daylight lighting to help your decision.

Let the stylist push your style choice too far beyond your natural position – take advice, not direction.

Use too many layers of make-up as you’ll suffer throughout the day worrying about how your makeup looks!

Be too trendy – do you cringe at your mum’s 1980s trendy makeup in her wedding photos?

MUA & Beautician

I am qualified in individual lash extensions, waxing, HD brows, gel polish application, acrylic Nails and microblading.

I studied make up artistry at The Birmingham Beauty Academy, I then went on to do a specialist Asian bridal master class and a MAC cosmetics masterclass. For my beauty courses, I have studied at a variety of well recognised establishments, including Capital and Beauty Deluxe training school.

My love of make-up started at a young age, I’ve always loved the different looks achieved using make up. I love when clients come and have their make-up done and they are given an immediate confidence boost when they look in the mirror, bringing some to tears because they are so pleased, to me that’s worth more than them paying me! Confidence in someone is beautiful so if I can help someone with that then I’m in the right job in my eyes.
