What’s the best tip you could give a bride deciding on hair/ makeup?
Think of the style of your dress and wedding theme. If the wedding is very formal it would look a bit out of place to have beachy curls.
Makeup is up to the bride, depending on how comfortable you are with wearing makeup ( if you don’t usually wear makeup it’s best to go with a natural look )
Last of all trust your makeup artist and hairdresser, if you throw some ideas around they will tell you which will work best and their knowledge of products to be used.
Which celeb look are you loving at the moment?
Michelle – I love Foo from Lmfao, the fro definitely works for him
Katie – I’m loving Helen Mirren and her pastel pink, she is such a confident woman and a beautiful role model.
