"What is a timeless bridal look that I'll always love in my wedding photos?"

There are lots of bold makeup-trends at the moment such as heavy eyeliner, strong contouring, glittery highlights and big lashes. While these may be fashionable now, I'd normally advise my clients to think about how they want to feel when they revisit their wedding album. Many brides tell me they want to look like themselves - but on their very best day. This is a great approach!

Enhance the features you like most about yourself. If you like your eyes, then choose a shadow the flatters your iris colour along with wispy lashes or a great volumising mascara. If your lips are your favourite part, then keep eyes neutral and pick a lipstick to add a bit of colour to your look. Pop on some blusher for a youthful vibe.

I'd avoid strong contouring as this can look too dark in photographs, and too much highlighter can glittery on a sunny day.

Make sure you check out your chosen professional's portfolio to see their style, and always have a trial so you can rest assured that you'll always love your wedding day.
