What tips do you have for brides who want to do their own make-up for their big day?

Foundation

It's imperative to get your skin glowing for the big day well in advance. It's not all about the makeup, preparation is key. Drinking lots of water, eating healthily and having facials way in advance are the golden key as you approach your wedding day.

Make sure you drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin from within. Book a course of facials in advance but be aware, facials can bring out  the impurities  in your     skin causing spots/pimples or blemishes as it rids itself of toxins and unwanted impurities that's why it's imperative to have a facial at least once a month in the run up to your wedding day. Treat yourself  to your last facial at least a week before your big day and prior to a spray tan.
